Bless Your Cotton Socks

October 16, 2017

“Bless your cotton socks.”
1. Used as an expression of endearment
‘you’re so sweet, bless your little cotton socks’

And endearment is exactly what I feel about Falke’s range of elegant mercerised cotton socks. Comfort is key when it comes to these little bundles of cotton and after two years of only wearing Falke I have yet to get a hole in any of my socks. (Touch wood!)

Available in a range of colours and various patterns there’s something for every outfit for the week. Think Alicia Silverstone in Clueless – block heels, pulled up socks & a mini skirt or keep things simple with denims and a pair of sneakers.
