Its that time of the year again, where we start pulling out our slippers and wearing our cozy socks around the house. This season is pretty rainy here, so I am a big fan of chunky wool socks we can wear inside our rainboots. Kenji's grandfather used to tell him the Japanese saying "cool head, warm feet". It's a custom of wearing warm socks to bed and sleeping on a buckwheat pillow to keep ones head cool. But it's also somewhat of an old Japanese proverb about keeping a cool temperament and having active feet by working hard and exercising. I think its cute! I always get cold feet at night, but personally, I can't stand to sleep in socks. So Kenji has been quoting this to me for the last ten years telling me I would sleep better with socks. ha ha
Now my little ones on the other hand, love wearing socks, even at night. So I rounded up some of my favorite socks and slippers for kiddos. Like those fleece booties from Old Navy, this is the same design they've had for the last 9 years and I've used them for all my babies! And Hanna Anderson baby socks which are my absolute fave, they are so cozy and never fall off. Plus Henry's favorite shearling slippers, my favorite prints from Hansel from Basel, baby Ugg slippers, and more!
(p.s number 9 are women's socks, but my big kids wear the size small as chunky socks during winter)
