Today is the first day of fall in the northern hemisphere. My apologies to those who live in the southern hemisphere for the fall photo. You are celebrating the beginning of spring. It is also National Legwear Day here in the United States. This particular unique holiday spoke to me because I have a whole collection of fun and colorful sports compression socks that I started wearing a few years ago while I play tennis, walk, or exercise. I started wearing them after my doctor suggested I wear compression socks when I fly or go on long car trips. They makes my legs feel so good. Sometimes I wear them all day even when I’m not exercising or traveling.
Here are a few of the many I have. The fun colors often coordinate with my tennis outfits. On our recent trip I wore them while we hiked. I often get compliments on my socks or just comments. I had one lady gush over my pink flamingo socks. Here they are.
Here I am with one of my tennis teams. I’m the one in the bright pink socks.
The photo below was taken on our recent trip. Here I am in my socks at the top of Pike’s Peak in Colorado Springs. It was windy and cold. We even saw a little sleet. I’m glad I had on my socks because the shorts weren’t made for that weather.
Over the years I’ve worn tights, leggings and Christmas socks, but these days I’m all into my sports compression socks. Today you can celebrate your legwear. What will you be wearing? I think I’ll be wearing these for tennis.
I was trying to think about which one of my characters would be most likely to wear sports compression socks. I think it would be Whitney Hamilton, the heroine of A Place to Find Love. She plays golf and tennis. And today is also American Business Women’s Day, and Whitney is all about business.
I will give away an ebook copy of A Place to Find Love to one person who leaves a comment. I will draw the winning name on September 23, 2021 at 9PM MST.
