A good friend of mine from Hong Kong was staying with me for a bit. I hadn’t seen her in a few years, and it was so nice to catch up with her. She has great taste and really helped me pull my place together during during my ongoing renovation: hanging paintings, buying pillows and other accessories, etc. She’s also an out-of-the-box thinker. The day after I unpacked all the stuff from my ski trip I was complaining that my feet are always cold in winter and she said, “Why did you pack your ski socks away? Why don’t you wear them in the winter?” Um, because ski socks are for skiing and I didn’t even think of wearing them on an every day basis. Duh! Brilliant idea!
Another huge advantage of wearing ski socks is most medium-weight socks have cushioned soles so they will make your winter boots much more comfortable, especially the ones with heels. SmartWool is a great brand that washes really well and will definitely keep your feet warmer in winter. Unfortunately, the end of January means a lot of stock is sold out, but if your foot size is 7 to 9.5, these socks are still available and shipping is free. Normally I wouldn’t wear so much color in my outfit, but since these socks are hidden by my boots, I love them!
