There were a lot of comments about statement socks in Angie’s recent trends forecast, mostly people thinking about how to wear them. Socks are oddly new to my son and me. He had them for the first 7 years of his life, but where we’ve been living, they are out of the question for half the year, and sort've optional the rest of the time. We know we’ll need some here, and will each need our own stash now that our feet are nowhere near the same size any more. I got us each some "outside" socks and some very colorful "lounge" socks.

I nearly rolled up my jeans a couple turns and put on some grey polka dot socks with my loafers before dinner tonight, but then decided to give my white jeans one more go (& of course I got tomato sauce on them, darn it!) I wore sandals (no socks!) But check out my boy. These are the socks I got him thinking he’d never be seen out of the house in them, so they’d be his at-home socks, so I’d have a chance at the “normal” ones being ready for school every day. The best laid plans.... sigh. But back on topic—those are flamingo socks, making a statement. 

What about you? Are you into the socks thing? Post your pix of how you’ve been wearing them here.
