My wild side

I’m breaking a couple of my personal style “rules” again today…but what the heck!!  Rules are meant to be broken, right?!

The first is this “wild side” graphic on my long-sleeved tee; as I’ve mentioned before, I don’t really like graphics!!  But when I saw this at Jacob a few years ago, I couldn’t resist – the colours and the rodeo cowboy image instantly appealed to me.

And secondly??  I HATE socks…and here I am, wearing an “over-the-knee” pair with my black booties!! 

The sock thing might be a bit strange, I’ll admit; but anyone who knows me, knows it’s true – I refuse to wear socks unless I absolutely have to!!  And this includes the coldest winter days; there are never any socks involved!!  Somehow though, when they cover the knees, they go from being completely unattractive (in my eyes!) to being super cute; so don’t be surprised if you see these making an appearance here and there in future blog posts!!

And just a little reminder…time is running out for my “Twelve Posts of Christmas” giveaway!!  Your last chance to leave qualifying comments will be December 24th at noon PST!!

    I'm not a graphic tee person either, but I do love that skirt!
    And yes, kind of like the pirate's code, fashion rules are more like guidelines…I love that you broke your self imposed rules and found an outfit that makes you happy.

    Sometimes, I think it's almost silly to say "I'd NEVER wear that!" From personal experience, I'd say that for every trend I thought I didn't like, I'll eventually see some variation of it that actually DOES appeal to me!! I'm always so happy to hear from you…your lovely comment has earned you another entry for my Christmas giveaway!!

    I also like no socks – especially in the washing machine 🙁 The Order takes a long time and I have absolutely no fun with it
    Your outfit is great again – I like the skirt and the combination with the Overknees is a brilliant idea. Dearest greetings Conny

      I know what you mean about losing socks in the laundry, Conny…I think that happens to everyone!! 🙂 And even though I was breaking some of my self-imposed style "rules" here, I think you can tell that I had a lot of fun with this look!! It's always so nice to get your little notes…thank you!! You have earned another contest ballot!!
