How I Stand Strong All Day

I run around all day long. In fact, let me revise that statement. I run around all day and all night long. I am a motor that never runs out of fuel. That means that I have to stay comfortable while remaining on top of everything that I need to do, while still remaining fashionable at the same time.



3M asked me to show off how I would style their FUTURO™ Brand Energizing Ultra Sheer Knee Highs for Women and I jumped at the chance because I am someone who travels a LOT. All those hours in the air leave me with cramps and pains in my lower legs. These FUTURO™ Brand Energizing socks provide graduated compression which improves circulation, and acts as mini massagers for my calves. Basically, the socks massage my tired legs as I go. What?! You know I was in for this ride!

Futuro Sock CollageBecause I need to dress up and dress down in my line of work, I decided to show off the socks by pairing them with Theory trousers and a sheer blue button down and neutral cami. Both my black heels and statement necklace of choice came from the H&M summer collection.  All in all, I believe this look retails for less than $200 — head to toe.


Whether I’m busy at my desk, catching a plane to LA, chasing after my kids, or picking up building blocks, I need to be comfortable and I need to be energized to get through it all. FUTURO™ Brand Energizing Trouser Socks and FUTURO™ Brand Ultra Sheer Knee Highs offer up both!
