"Rad or Bad"

So, go figure the day after I decide to wear socks and sandals, Refinery 29 pops up with a feature on whether socks and sandals are the newest micro-trend, or something that should be left to 9 year olds.

Personally, I wasn't aware that it was even a trend. In fact, I didn't really give it much thought other than my toes were too cold to wear sandals without socks but I bought those shoes a month ago and was aching to finally wear them. I guess I am the kind of person who only knows about those trends that are basically thrown in your face like ripped tights. I don't know if that is a good or a bad thing, but I just found it amusing that things that I don't even think about become points of discussion in terms of trends and style. Sometimes socks are just socks, warmth for the toesies without any more to it. I am not really sure if I am making a point but...sometimes clothes are better left unanalyzed.
