He dresses like an old man

When I saw the prompts for Writers Workshop, I didn't immediately pick something to write on but after looking over them again number 4 was just for me!! A funny story involving socks - I could for sure write about this one!!!

I love Andrew, I really do but see his feet in this picture....yes he wears BLACK SOCKS, year round pulled up out of his sneakers. It makes me nuts!! I know that his fashion sense is lacking but black socks, in the summer with shorts is not cute. I've gone as far as buying him ankle socks but he won't wear them and some have "disappeared" over time. Thankfully he does not wear these socks with his flip flops but he won't wear flip flops in the summer if we are walking a lot (this pic was taken in Pittsburgh last summer on our mini-vacation).

The other thing about his socks that drives me nuts is that he turns them inside out when he takes them off at night and they can be found wadded up all over the house. Every time I do laundry I have to turn them right side out or they have to be washed again. He will also wear these black socks until they are falling apart and now I just throw them out and replace them with a stash of new socks I keep hidden in a closet (sneaky, sneaky).

I'm trying to break my dear out of his sock habit but I think it will take some more time....

Too funny! My husband still tries to sneak in white socks with dress pants and dress shoes... EWW! I usually do Mama Kat writing prompts, but not this week... I couldn't get anything going based on the topics!

Funny post! :) Have a good day!

Aren't men annoying when they are so stuck in their ways? I hope he listens up and switches to shorter, white socks soon.

Ha ha! Will won't wear low-cut socks either, he always has white socks sticking out over the tops of his shoes, also not cute. I'm trying to convince him to wear lower socks, too, but he doesn't like them. Maybe in time...

Stopping by from Mama Kat's…

Why wearing black socks and shorts reminds me of old guys is beyond me.

I try my best to wear appropriate socks with similar types of shoes. I never wear white socks with dress shoes, and never wear dark socks with tennis shoes.

Thanks for sharing,

Well, can you replace the black socks with white socks?

And at least he isn't wearing white socks with flip flops and looking like a little Chinese woman like my husband did tonight. I wanted to run away in shame!!!

I finally got my husband to wear ankle socks by telling him I found ankles really sexy. Now he wears them all the time and shakes his ankles at me. Kinda strange, but still better than high socks!!!
