My black suit hates me. While I’ve worn each piece separately, I don’t think the full suit has seen the light of day (or the tunes at night) for some time. This may be because my love for its step-cousin (the vest) has a firm grip on me or because I just feel boring in it. Wearing it reminds me of those events in business school where everyone is standing in a sea of black suits … bored.
Recently, I started feeling a little boring with my work wardrobe. Not a good sign, as I didn’t want to go out and buy new clothes (and there are only so many ways of wearing the same shirt). Instead, I thought back to this video I saw from the GQ Rules’ Style Minute series last year:
Check! To get back to feeling great in my work wear, I needed to add some pizazz! My totally rad bro-in-law then rocked my world at Christmas with the best find that did just the trick: Happy Socks!
Each time I wear them I get compliments on my sock choice! I then grin even bigger when I get to lean over and say “they’re called HAPPY Socks!” That usually involves both parties chuckling and some even respond with a “of course they are.”
If you’re getting bored of wearing the same outfits to work, save some pennies and grab some socks that will make a statement. These bad boys certainly make MY feet smile!
