I have only worn socks about 3 times since the weather has turned colder because it's so easy just to slip into my flip-flops every morning. However, I think the time has come when it is just too cold for sandals - so socks and shoes it is.
For the most part all my socks match; a couple years ago I got fed up with missing one of every different kind of sock; some with Hanes in pink, some with Hanes in red, some with stripes, some with pom poms, some with coloured toes, some with Adidas written on the side, the list goes on and on. So I threw all of our socks in the garbage (except the cozy ones of mine) and bought all grey socks with black heels. I bought them all the same size (they are a tiny bit big on me) and the husband and I share them. This way the socks always have a mate. I think it was one of the best moves I have ever made in the sock department.
So back to this morning...all I had in my drawer was my fuzzy socks and the pair of toe socks pictured above. The husband bought them for me a couple years ago when Monsters Inc. came out and they're so cute. They have little swirly grips on the bottom just like kids' socks. I got lots of compliments on them today - my husband says the idea of having his toes seperated like that makes him want to throw up.
I had a good day, got lots done, and took the picture below when I was driving down the Number 1 highway on my way home. This is what it has looked like in Winnipeg for the last week or two. The temperature is supposed to get down to -2 tonight so I'm happy I have on my cozy toe socks!
