Elle inspires: Sock & Shoes Trend.

I am forever being inspired by magazines, be it photos, article or even adverts, and I am often taking photos from the mag or scrapbooking images I like. This month was no exception.

If you've picked up October's Elle already, you'll have seen this article that really got me thinking (as Carrie would say), Why isn't it acceptable to wear socks with sandles? A few years ago when I was in college, ankle socks were everywhere in the shops, yet I could probably count on my hand the amount of people that would dare wear them on show. I would always pick up cute socks but would hide them as discreetly as possible under my jeans. In fact this is still very much the case. But after reading this article I may be converted to the sock and shoe trend.

This article, without a doubt, makes socks very cool. So of course, I've had to try it out myself. I have a surprisingly large selection of ankle socks so I've had a bit of variety to play around with, take a look.

I kinda like the frilly socks more, cos it takes the focus away from my unnaturally pale legs. This isn't suitable for the typical British weather, but it is certainly something I would consider when the sun is out. But for today, I think I'll stick with tights!

What do you think? Are you loving or hating the socks with shoes look?
