Socks.

The "Desert Rose" shoot in May's VogueUK photographed by Venetia Scott really struck me, as I loved the way that in every image in which the feet could be seen, the model, Siri Tollerod, was wearing coloured socks with sandals. So, I decided to try and incorporate some colourful socks with sandals into a couple of my outfits over the last week.
I've just realised both my outfits were worn to sporting events, the first to watch Liverpool FC get knocked out of the European championships (sad sad sad), though only at bar, and the second to watch Lancashire v Durham play cricket. The weather was so awful though that the ground was very empty!
