Summer Lovin', or The Sock Strike
Full disclosure - I have had socks on twice this fall. But only because I got a cute new pair of boots and wanted to wear them. But then I got over that, and now I'm wearing the boots with naked feet. But only for fashion, not because of the weather.
And my feet are happy! I have stubbornly refused to put away my mary jane flats and am wearing them sans socks most days, regardless of the temperature. I did make some concessions to tradition and put away the open-toed shoes after Labour Day. (I don't wear white either.) But I got a new pedicure last week.
I am NOT letting go of summer. Socks have come to represent a surrender of sorts. A capitulation to the changing of the seasons. Not for this lady, thank you very much.
Want to take bets how long this strike lasts once we hit sub-zero temperatures??
