Spot The Bright Purple Socks

Outfit worn on Friday 9th November 2012 -
I'm wearing:
Karen Millen red textured silver-buttoned knitted cardigan,
ASOS black plain long-sleeved top,
Karen Millen grey pleated folded-hem suit skirt,
Marks and Spencer black 100-denier tights,
bright purple socks (unseen),
Oasis black leather slouchy heeled boots.

There wasn't really anything special about this outfit.The cardi has an interesting back detail but I'll save a photo of it for another outfit.

I'm loving my collection of boots at the moment. I've had these boots since Winter 2010 although I don't recall wearing them at all last Winter...

My apologies for the (cute) umbrella that I tend to forget to move. I actually would love to start taking photos of myself outdoors but it's a small town where people stare if you do stuff like that...

One last thing, you may or may not have noticed a section on the right side column of my blog.
It's called: "Please Only Follow If You Actually Like My Blog". If you're a new visitor,
please read it before you leave a comment saying something like, "follow for follow".

Just FYI, GFC only allows you to follow 300 blogs max. This effectively means that the "follow for follow" tactic, only lasts until 300 followers. You may end up with a bunch of blogs you weren't even interested in reading so I don't understand why you would waste your time?

Don't get me wrong, leave me your links! I love new blogs! I just don't want to be bribed to read your blog...

  1. Great outfit.
    Thanks,for your comment and the like on bloglovin.:-)

  2. It may seem like very simple, but I really like the color combo you got going on. The red cardi really adds a kick to the whole outfit.

    I'm from a small town, too, and I think no matter where you go - people will always stare at you when you're taking pictures of yourself. It's worse if it's just you and a tripod just hanging out. Totally been there, done that. :P

    Ugh, F4F comments are the worst! I used to get those kind of spammers years ago. I think they eventually die off? haha

  3. Hello! I just came across your blog, and I love it! I’ve decided to follow you! If you get a minute, I’d love to know what you think of my latest outfit post! While you’re visiting, follow along so we can keep in touch! :)

  4. I like the skirt. The pleated look that is popular now suits so many styles and shapes, hopefully it will keep going as a trend - although some of the business wear designers have been incorporating it for years.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your outfits :)

  5. You look beautiful!
    Love the skirt!


  6. Great color combo!

    ps. I bought my bag in a market here in Florence

  7. It´s a pretty look. You should take pics outside cos the lighting is so much better. I don´t live in a small town but people always stare when you shoot pics. You shouldn´t care about that. Seen the Amazing Spiderman already twice. I loooove it. You are absolutely right!! He´s so much better than Toby Maguire!!!


  8. Love the colors in this outfit Linda! And that skirt is so cute :)

  9. cute combo of skirt and cardi))

    I also live in a small twon btw, I just slowly learned not to give a damn about staring people. But on the other hand, it's me and the hubby, not me and tripod.. *that* I wouldnt dare))
