fishnet socks + 2017’s resolutions

Here’s an unexpected stocking stuffer idea: fishnet socks. Bonus points if they have a bow, like this pair. They’re an easy way to jazz up any outfit and at $6 a pop, you can easily snag several pairs for all sartorial discerning girlfriends. I picked up this pair when I was in Tokyo earlier this year and love pairing them with my little Sarah Flint Emma heels and jeans (for a cool girl, off-duty look) and with a full midi skirt (for a polished statement outfit).

This, of course, has me thinking about this particular outfit from last year, where I styled my fishnet stockings under a pair of distressed blue jeans — alongside my resolutions for 2017. The funny thing about resolutions to me, is that, no matter how much you feel like you’ve accomplished in a particular year, it’s easy to still feel like you didn’t quite hit the mark. But after reading back through my resolutions from this time last year, and remembering my mood and frame of mind at the time (I was in the midst of an unhealthy breakup), I have to say, I feel quite happy and satisfied with the progress I’ve made, both personally and professionally. I’ll be recapping my progress for the year, benchmarked against last year’s goals — as well as sharing my resolutions for 2018 soon, but in the meantime, I’d love to hear from you guys — how did 2017 treat you? I know it had it’s ups and definitely it’s downs — but overall, how would you rate it for you?

  1. I love fish net socks and that is a really clever idea for a stocking stuffer! I think its safe to say that 2017 was a year of surprises and I think that although I may not have hit every goal I had for the year, I landed up achieving things that were different but that I am equally proud of.


  2. Yep, even when reflecting and thinking about the year before compared to this, I somehow always feel like I could have done, seen, experienced much more
    and somehow I’m always left with this anxious feeling that yet another year is ending and I’m don’t feel like it was “enough” as it could have been “bigger year” than it
    ended up being. Silly thoughts but it’s not so easy to block them and actually tap myself on the shoulder and see how much I DID progress and do this year in comparison
    to the year(s) before.

  3. I don’t blog but I do like experimenting and sharing. So I’ve seen this sock and shoe look in a lot of South Korean drama shows. But it was nice to see the trend translated so effortlessly. I tried the look by ordering 8 pair of fishnet socks from Amazon. I wore them with Talbots Brazilian leather pointy toe kitten heels and distressed bf jeans. The look was a total hit, thanks for sharing your eye for beauty with us.
