Starting with Fall 09 many designers started showing ankle socks with dressy shoes or oxfords and skirts or dresses.

The trend continued this Spring and Forever21 showcased the bobbysox look heavily in their new Forever21 Twist collection.

Now I had resisted slightly at first considering myself way to old to sport such a look, but when I had found that pumpkin sweater at the thrift store I dipped my toes in and tried it. I really loved the vintage vibe it gave off.
You may remember this from Fall. I only had the nerve to wear the socks with shoes and skirt outfit once.
Now though, I have totally succumbed to the charm of socks and shoes. I have worn the combo three times this week!
Nebbie the kitty was in a feisty mood after seeing my shiny red shoes with socks.
I layered a red sweater over my dress as it is still quite chilly out. Another cute pair of red shoes.
This look made me feel like a vintage pin-up model. I wore it to go to the bank and pay bills around town. That chore was a little less painful.
Not once has anyone given me weird looks. In fact I have been complimented on how cute I look.
So while this trend is in style I shall rock it as hard as I can!
