A love of autumn colours made me jump the gun a couple weeks ago, with some fall colour wheels. But tomorrow is the Autumnal Equinox and the first day of fall. Days are getting shorter and nights are getting longer (and colder!). I thought I’d throw together a little gradient of dark and warmth, with the help of our wonderful new advanced search options. (hint, to play along, check “Autumn” from the Theme list and then start chosing colours, I went for Off White/Natural, Grey and Black—be sure to click “ALL” so you get more options!)
The days are still pretty bright and long, but I’m finding in the morning I want taller socks or light leg warmers until it warms up enough.
(I sort of cheated on the search terms here, because I’ve actually been rocking that yellow pair of Harajuku Leg Warmers pretty much every morning! They fit over my shoes easy, so when the sun hits the sky I can slip them off and rock my ankle socks.)
As the weeks go on, evening is going to start coming earlier and earlier and socks will get higher. Arm warmers will start to become a little more important to keep the chill out.
Soon, tights and leggings will be a necessary option. Maybe even tights with legwarmers or socks!
And finally, it will be dark most of the day and cold, not chilly. Wool and other warmest things will be necessary! We’ll be cuddled and bundled until the longest night of the year in December, when the sun starts winning the war again.
Brr! I’m cold already thinking about it. Which is probably for the best, because it’s still warm here. I just have to remember that soon that’ll be just a memory.
2 soxy thoughts:
I have always been leery of the N40s because of them being made of nylon…
the navy color is so beautiful but i just worry about how they will feel on – do they have a lot of compression to them? does the material allow the skin to breathe?
@Raubynn, the N40s seem to be one of those styles that folks love or don’t. Because they’re 90% nylon, they can feel snaggy against rough cuticles as you put them on, but once they’re on (for me), they feel fine on my feet. I haven’t had any noticeable sweating problems with them, they seem to breathe okay. They are sometimes a struggle to get on, you have to take it slow like with nylons, only they’re thicker, so it is a little more of an experience. Some folks don’t like that. I love it because they stay up all day! Once they’re on, I don’t think you are too aware of the compression. It’s tough, because there are a lot of factors to this style that can make or break it for folks, depending on their tastes. I’m biased, but it might be worth it to get a pair to try and have someone in mind to give them to if they don’t work for you.
