Let's lay down some ground rules, shall we?

Yesterday, as I walked down the metro platform on my way to work I noticed a girl about my age walking towards me.

Heavy coat.

Generic office work clothes.

Peep toe shoes.

Oh, yeah, that's right. Peep toe shoes. No tights. Just bare toes.

Let me just say this as a caveat, I'm not a huge fan of hard and fast rules, but here's one I'm going to put out there.

No bare toes for daytime after, say, Halloween.

But as my 8th grade math teacher taught me, there are exceptions to every rule.

Unless you live in a place where the temperature never drops below 45 degrees.

Or, it's an evening function where you break out the good jewelry and strappy sandals are a must.

But otherwise, put your toes away!!

Peep toes shoes don't seem nearly as bad as the flip flops that were prevalent into December when I stayed in DC a few years ago. Has the trend of young interns in business suits and flip flops ended?

Couldn't agree more. Seasonal appropriateness, ladies!

Please, peep toe shoes (especially chunky ones) are totally in right now! Tights are as well, but sporting this trend of showing a little toe is totally acceptable. Just as long as you have neatly groomed toes :)

saw a similar offense, but worse - WHITE peep-toes in broad November daylight in Canada

I dislike peep toes at all times. I do not like fatty toes blobbing out of shoes. Ick. In winter, it's just frozen ick.

Tights don't keep your feet that warm. What's the big deal here?
