I could choose to wear sensible socks: navy, black, grey, brown. Snooze.
Or ugly socks: I won’t bother to post a picture, maybe you own them (and love them).
But instead, I indulge my inner child with PLAYFUL socks in happy colors with silly animals on them: corgis, otters holding hands (paws), octopi, cowgirls.
Yes, hidden under my sensible black riding boots are fun socks.
Later in the day, the boots come off and I wear tennis shoes or Merrells or some other completely uncool shoes with my riding breeches while I do errands around town or just hang around in my breeches. I look down at my socks and smile.
Like lingerie for the feet, in a way. Maybe not, but they’re a little secret under my boots that is functional but also rather frivolous.
Consider some happy socks for yourself today, whatever they may be. Why not?
