Ode to Argyle


Ian Poulter's Open campaign continues, but white plus-fours matched with Argyle socks can't stop him slipping to one over

I was putting on my argyle socks this morning realizing how much I missed them. Most of the summer we wear no socks with either flip flops or docksiders; now with the cold weather ontop of us it's time to think of socks. Nothing is better than looking down and seeing that great pattern on our calf. I looked in my sock draw today and saw way over a dozen pairs, and I know I have some hidden away in "winter" clothes boxes as well. I think today is a great day for everyone to walk back to their bedrooms and grab a colourful pair of argyles that have been sitting there patiently all summer and talk them for a walk.

This past weekend I purchased new bedroom furniture; which of course meant, I had to organize all of my clothes. I came across my argyle socks and literally took a pause to enjoy the beautiful patterns too. I simply find them pleasing to look at.

Love argyle socks on guys. I just bought my fiance a couple pairs from J.Crew and he also loves them. They have some really good color combinations.

All my friends tell me I dress old because of my Argyle socks... I just explain that white nike anklet socks look innapropriate unless your working out or louging at home.

If I have to wear socks, then I insist on them being argyle or patterned with some sort of cute motif!

Ok Tod, I know this isn't very proper blogging etiquette, but I can't find your email address anywhere on your blog.
You mentioned that you missed the last "Show me Yours" competition so I'm just giving you a heads up that it's going on until Monday! So you and Muffy and the kids get to carving and decorating your pumpkins and email me those pictures by monday afternoon!
