Though science makes the reality more inexact, “equinox” means equal amounts of night and day. We get roughly the same amount of light and dark on the first day of fall on the Autumnal Equinox (and in spring for the Vernal Equinox!). With that in mind, I thought I’d give you some equally fabulous options in both night and day versions.
All the “night” styles are pulled from our fabulous Autumn section and the “day” styles are from the Lightweight category. And if your transitional seasons are anything like ours, then having both cozy and breezy styles to hand is vital this time of year!
Black and red is fun, but so sophisticated if you make the red dark. The M Squared is a light little style that scrunches beautifully for the day, while the Super Stripes take on the night with bold bands of colour.
And with that warm glow of day, I’ll leave you to enjoy your first day of fall!
Step into my sock-powered time machine as we travel back back, BACK to August 2011 when I pointed out our new Solid option for choosing uniform-code appropriate socks for back to school. How old fashioned was that?! Nowadays, our new-fangled technology can zoom you right to solid socks in any height you want (like the popular knee highs, OTKs and midcalves!).
By clicking “Solid” in the Pattern/Texture area of Advanced Search, all you’ve got to do, really, is pick your uniform or school colours and sock coverage style! Just be sure you choose “ANY” while you’re picking your school colours, though. It’s very rare that we’d classify a solid sock as both Blue and Yellow (I guess that would be straight up Green?)
Though, if you do need multiple school colours representing at once, that’s easy enough to do. Just keep the colours restricted by “ALL” and choose “Striped” instead of “Solid” from the Pattern/Texture area of Advanced Search for a shortcut to school pride!
We even have a great present for teacher, so you can start the year on the right foot.
So, whether you’re school shopping for yourself or someone else have fun and drop us a line if you have any questions!
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.
Somehow, with all the colour wheels I’ve done, I’ve totally missed doing one for fall! And although the official first day of fall isn’t until September 22nd this year, I’m already feeling a chill in the morning. So quick, before the leaves fall off the trees, let’s take in some fabulous fall colours. Let’s follow how the trees change colour, from green to red and the warm shades in between!
I personally never want summer to end, but I have to say I won’t regret colder temperatures opening up the world of thick, cuddly socks for me again! There’s lots more fall socks to choose from in our Autumn collection, where there’s also lots of great back to school options.
Web designer extraordinaire Olivia has done it again with this month’s fabulous new theme for Halloween!
This theme is so sweet we may be tempted to keep it up past the end of the month and to celebrate the season of playing dress up, or just showing off our favorite autumn outfits, we’re adding new items for fall just as fast as we can (which, try as we might, never seems fast enough) including several new items for our ever growing Halloween section…
My personal favorite from this latest batch of Halloween goodies are the Candy Corn socks…
Based on our classic “striped knees” DreaM Stockings
*made exclusively for us in the USA using recycled cotton*
this version won’t be around long so if you love the bright colors grab a pair while you can.
…but worry not, we’re getting a darker version soon that should last us all the way til winter creeps in.
And when winter does creep in, me and my dogs are going to stay nice and cozy no matter what our crazy Portland weather throws at us!
