Faux Pas.

Scarf Cape – Asos 
Velvet Crop Top – American Apparel 
Plaid Skirt – American Apparel (Warehouse Sample Item – similar linked!) 
Belt – Vintage 
Over Knee Socks – River Island (Similar)  

Socks and sandals are supposedly one of the biggest fashion mistakes a person can make… though to be honest, it’s not really a rule that has ever bothered me. I picked up these gorgeous Daisy Street platform sandals when the weather was a bit warmer, but now the temperature is declining once again (the British summer seems to get shorter and shorter each year!), it’s become a bit tricky to wear them (blaming my poor circulation for that one). They’re so lovely that it would be a shame to retire them so soon, so I’m keeping them around for a while by wearing them over long socks or tights with ankle socks ^.^ Are there any fashion faux pas that you don’t consider to be too terrible?

I hope you are all well and having a lovely week so far! I am now back in London, it’s a bit of change from the peace & quiet of the past week or so.

    Hello! I discovered you today on lookbook and I can't stop going through your blog and watch every single outfit!! They're totally breathtaking so like you! I think wearing visible white socks could be not so fashion for someone, but I like it so much with my beloved creepers or with loafers or monks! Hugs from Italy! Mara

    Amazing look, I'm still so obsessed with that scarf cape and I love seeing it styled differently. I love the look of socks and sandals! I always wear blue and green even though apparently they shouldn't be seen together, I never pay attention to fashion 'rules' aha. xx

    Love your skirt and shoes! Personally, I think that socks with sandals are okay as long as they're the same color or if they're neutral like black and white! You look awesome <3

    I love this school girl/rocker chick mash-up! I especially love your interpretation with the crop top. The belt also adds a nice touch to the otherwise familiar pinafore skirt. Thank you for sharing this!

    wow,,, your black colored knee socks are looking very amazing with high veg heel sandals. these types of socks always give attractive look with short skirts as you have worn. besides socks and sandals your outfits are also outstanding. you are looking too cute in this dress.
