Unusual Print Jacket, Fishnets And Disappearing Socks

It’s been a funny old week in Yorkshire. I’m still not over my cold from hell, (it seemed to go only to rear it’s ugly head again and floor me), Spring is still being a bit on the shy side (I had to put the heating back on the other day) and I have been completely stumped by the disappearance of dozens of socks.

I have become more and more positive that there is a sock monster living in my house. I’m sure he comes out at night and only ever steals one sock – never a pair. My drawers now runneth over with odd socks.

This last week the sock disappearance became so bad that Mr Chic began to dream about sock monsters. Apparently they do not just steal your socks, they eat them; with chopsticks – go figure. That man has one seriously groovy imagination!

To save me from the pain of searching through a pile of socks in order to match a pair, I decided to ditch the trousers I was going to wear for an anniversary meal at a rather fancy restaurant in favour of a skirt and fishnets. Well, why not.

I picked up the unusual print jacket in Spain. The small boutiques there were just stuffed full of unusual jackets – I could have bought the lot. I probably would have if we hadn’t been travelling across Europe in a soft top, what I would have given for another suitcase.

Although it’s always been a bit of a showstopper, teaming the jacket with a pencil skirt, fishnets and the raspberry pink boots that I wore in last week’s outfit post, results in an outfit that has more that a smattering of sass.

That sass gave me such a swagger! I swear I sashayed into the restaurant, and garnered quite a few compliments. I did trip on the way out though; damn you klutz gene, damn you.

It was quite nice going to bed without worrying about the sock monster. Unless he steals my fishnets to fashion into a hammock, I’m safe 🙂

Do you have sock monster troubles? How do you keep your socks sorted?

    I love the little bows on the back of those fishnets! Good choice!

      Thanks Gemma! They were a last minute purchase, I spotted them just as I was about to leave a shop 🙂

    Gorgeous outfit! Love the sassy fishnets! You just need a raspberry beret to match those boots! As for sock monsters, we have a whole gang of them in our house – one, like yours, takes random odd socks, one steals my socks and hides them under my daughter’s bed, one chews massive holes in all my son’s socks, another one shrinks what’s left. We need to move to a tropical beach – No socks!

      Thank you Astrid!
      I’ve never tried a beret, but I’m going to now 🙂

    I don’t know where to start here! I love your hair. Your skin is breathtaking. The jacket is amazing, and so YOU, and those fishnets and booties? Just divine. Love it all, and will never look at fishnets again without thinking about your sock monster making a hammock out of them. (What an image!)(thank you!) xx

      Isn’t is weird that a few years ago I wouldn’t even have picked that jacket up in a store! It’s one of my absolute favourites 🙂
      Glad I could plant that image in you mind! Ha!

    Lisa said it all! Your skin is amazing for sure. And your look is fabulous – especially love those booties – they will also add a highlight to any basic look with jeans!
    Glad you mentioned the sock monster… I think there is one in my house too 😉

      I think we all have a sock monster Annette! It’s funny, I picked these booties up to style with jeans, but I saw them next to the jacket and I just had to try it. It’s now one of my favourite looks 🙂

      Ah thanks Michelle. For some reason I am always super sassy when I wear it 🙂
