Sock It To Me

I didn't know if I would be able to wear these boots today.
Can you guys believe I almost ripped my toenail completely off
while stretching last week? I hit my toe on my metal magazine
rack and it was disgusting. I'll spare you. But I did go to the
Urgent Care and I was given meds and a "post-op shoe"
to walk around in. I'm fine now, but I'm an invalid, lol.

To the post...

I actually bought this After Market off shoulder ruffle sweater a month ago to wear to NYFW. I was going to pair it with a stylish denim overalls set. But I ended up skipping out of a show (because fashion week is tiring AF), so I didn't wear it. Fortunately, that means I can show it off to you guys today. This knit top also comes in black and light blue.

And the sock boot trend is fierce for fall. I already own a pair of sock boots that I love. You might remember my Zara lucite booties that I was rockin' last fall and winter. So it's nice to see the trend is back in full force again this year.

These red ones and these olive ones by Steve Madden are to die for! But I'm particularly into this version from Aldo -- that also comes in black -- because of the cute love embroidery at the ankle to showcase the sock-like aesthetic.

This past weekend I had a good time celebrating a friend's birthday in Oakland. And this coming weekend I'll be off to Miami for a high school friend's wedding. It'll also be a reunion of some sort. It'll be my first time back to south Florida since the hurricanes hit so stay connected with me over the weekend via Instagram.
P.s. - thanks for all the nice words on my post last week about mean girls on social media. But I really wasn't that mad. I don't let stuff like that bother me. I just prefer to vent it out sarcastically, lol.

  7. OUCH!!!!!! You have my sympathy - and I hope you heal up quickly and well. It's good you got medical attention and have a 'post-op shoe' for some protection.
    Your outfit rocks and you look fabulous rocking it! I love the ruffles on the sleeves of your off-shoulder sweater, your Lovelyy sock booties with the clear heals are pretty, and you look amazing in those 'Wild Blue Denim washed black destructed ankle jeans'!!!!
    Best wishes for your October!!!

  9. I did that to a toe nail once and it was brutal - I also landed in the ER over it. You're a rock star for getting those killer shoes on.
