Embracing the humble ankle sock...

Another day, another outfit featuring my cream dress and camel coat! This dress is my go to outfit whenever I'm not sure what to wear as it is such a versatile colour and I really love the shape of the dress. I'm so glad that the weather is starting to improve too, I am desperately in need of some sunshine and my pretty summer dresses are just dying to be worn. It may not be summertime yet but with (nearly) bare legs, a girl can dream, right?! 

Coat: Dannimac via mum, dress: Forever 21, belt: George at ASDA, ankle socks: Primark, shoes: Betty London ankle boots c/o Spartoo
Apologies for my over excited moon face here, the sunshine was obviously far too exciting! This floral belt doesn't get worn as often as I'd like but it was perfect for adding a bit of a pattern to an otherwise plain outfit. I have been painting my nails a lot more recently and this Nails Inc 'Tate' nail polish is my favourite red colour. I love the fact it isn't too bright too, I think the darker red looks really dramatic against my skin and I love it for adding a bit of an edge (this is as edgy as it gets chez Fallon!)


Saying that though, I have finally embraced the ankle sock/dress/ankle boots combination after many a failed attempt to pull it off. This was mainly for practicality's sake (there is nothing worse than shredding your feet when trying to break in your new shoes) but actually I liked how it turned out. I did feel like an oversized five year old for a while but I like to think I actually looked pretty darn cool in the end. I have been lusting over these beautiful boots for ages and I couldn't be happier. As with all Betty London shoes, they are ridiculously comfy and so well priced too, I think I may have a slight problem....



What do you think, have I managed to pull off ankle socks?
P.S. This post was done in collaboration with Spartoo

You've definitely pulled it off, Maria! I was stood in topshop wondering if i should buy those frilly ankle socks, but i don't think it'd suit it! i used to wear them when i was younger, so keen to bring it back in to my life for nostaglic values! x

Winnie said...

I adore your boots! They go so well with that jacket - you make me want to go out and buy new shoes!

Always, I see amazingly cute sandals and socks photos, or ankle socks with boots on websites and blogs, which all look great. Yours look really cute, and yet when I try them, I look weird in them. I think I must have funny ankles.

Heather said...
