Socks with Sandals

UPDATE: Mom caught wind of this post and wanted me to know—lest I think that Americans are total sartorial dolts—that she used to wear socks with sandals. “Or as I say ‘S with S,'” she says. “And I come from the good ole USA. I always wore sandals in the winter and was forced to put on socks (or tights) on bitter cold days.”

Yep. The ’70s sure were awesome.
