Not So Snowy Snowday

Everything around here is closed down, which seems a little premature to me, as we have yet to get any actual winter weather, but I mean who is really complaining? Anyway, I am really excited about today’s outfit, because it features a really special brand. As you all know, I love socks, especially funky patterned socks. So imagine my excitement when Sammy Icon contacted me asking to do a partnership with Bee+You. Sammy Icon is a Ukrainian company specializing in colorful socks and mens underwear. I was honestly a little surprised when they contacted me, but they loved my looks and were really interested in having me promote their product. I talked with their customer-service department (they are seriously so nice and helpful) and a month later, I have three amazing and super comfy pairs of socks to share with you all! When choosing my socks from their website, I didn’t let color or pattern scare me. I decided to just go with my gut and let the styling fall into place later. When I opened the package for this pink, purple, blue and green pair, I’ll admit I was a little nervous. However, I chose this opportunity to try-out the whole socks and heels trend and I LOVE the way the pink peeps through the cut outs on these black heels. I then decided on my favorite velvet baby-doll dress, which is perfectly complimentary to the bright green on the socks, and a leather jacket for warmth. I kept it simple with my accessories, allowing the socks to be the main focal-point of the look. In the end, I have a pretty casual look with the perfect amount of flair! Oh and I can’t wait to cuddle up in my new socks on this rainy snow-day.

My heart’s on my socks… A casual look for Valentine’s Day

I admit it, my last look was a little over the top, however, don’t let my overly girly get-up scare you from celebrating V-Day in style. For those of you who don’t want an outfit quite as flashy as mine, today’s look is a subtler take on the typical Valentine’s Day outfit, but it’s not without it’s own bit of romantic flare. The key to achieving this is all in the accessories. For about $6 (thanks Forever 21!) my everyday look got shot with Cupid’s arrow! Check out the pictures below, and let me know how you will be celebrated Valentine’s Day! So, will your look be all out or are retro heart socks more your style?
