I've been following your blog - and love it.  I have a quick fashion question - and I've been googling/pinteresting/magazing and can't find the answer.  I thought maybe you could help.  I have a couple pairs of straight jeans that I love but cannot figure out how to wear them into fall/winter. One in particular are too bunchy to go into boots - but I don't want to go sockless with flats this winter... 

Any suggestions? 

Thanks! Missy

It's all about the oxford or a loafer.  The key to finding a shoe that works with straight jeans is wearing a silhouette that covers the top of your foot.  You need this in the shoe because the cut of the denim won't cover your foot.  An oxford/loafer is different than a ballet flat where the entire top of the foot is exposed, which why socks looks silly when worn with a flat.  You see too much of the sock, and that makes your foot look wider than it really is and creates a frumpy look.   
Here I chose to go with the oxford, one with no heel and one with a heel.  In both outfits I am wearing sock so my tooties don't freeze in the Minnesota winter, but you can barely see them if at all!
