Rain in Style

Well, it got cold quick, am I right? Granted, this is Virginia, and we don’t really abide by the normal definition of fall...or really any season. After all, Virginia is for lovers...lovers of drunk weather and crazy weird storms. LOL. And, seeing as we have some sort of Dectober (that's December and October) weather going on right now, I thought, this week, I’d talk about my favorite cold weather accessory.

Long socks! They are heaven on chilly mornings and evenings. Mine are from Grace & Lace, and you can find them here. I’m telling you, they are like leg warmers and slippers combined into one glorious item. They come in several different colors and even a few patterns. I would add a pair to my Christmas list, but ya know... they sell out, so I will just buy them now, and fake surprise when I open them on Christmas. Plus they are on sale! It's a win win.

Pull them on over leggings or jeans, or you can wear them on their own. I find they stay up better if they are worn over leggings or skinny jeans. Either way, I prefer them to slippers, because they keep me much warmer.  Which is good if you are a person like me who is ALWAYS cold.

So, grab a book, put on your long socks and say "see ya" to cold legs.  

 

And, while you are lounging in your long socks, don't forget to enter my giveaway! It ends on October 28! Details are, here.  Hurry! Go now!
