“It’s the beginning of a relationship, you’re supposed to act stupid.” The beginning of Luke’s and Lorelai’s relationship is one of my favorite parts of the show. Oh who am I kidding I love it all. The scene where Lorelai is flirting with Luke at the diner and trying to get him to flirt back is what inspired these socks. I wanted something a little flirty. I wanted to slip these on with my favorite pair of jeans and ankle books and have a little extra “jaunt” in my steps. That way when my hubby sees me walk by he can say those jeans are really working for me too! Secretly it’s the socks!
