Amen to my cousin, Colleen, for emailing me this fine, fine specimen of frump captured at her son's soccer game. Her immediate concern (as was mine, when I saw the photo) was: Why the heel? Even me, being a huge fan of heels, can see no purpose for them on what can only be described as athletic clogs. Or shall we say athleticlogs?
Now that we've addressed the problem of the rubber molded heel, we can spend a moment on the bubble-gum pink smiley-face socks. When one wears socks of this color, especially with mary jane-style shoes, one wants them to be seen, am I wrong? So this was a conscious choice. This mom said to herself, while donning her slightly cropped boot cut jeans, you know what would be really cute and sporty to wear to the soccer game today? My mary jane athleticlogs with those adorable bright pink happy face socks peeping out, like they're giggling at the world.
Either that, or her feet got cold on the way to the game and she grabbed her 10-year old daughter's socks from the floor of the minivan and threw them on. But I'm betting on the former.
Thank you Colleen!
