This was a look I’d been wanting to try for a while, and today I finally gave it a go. I never actually had to wear a uniform at school, so that’s probably why I didn’t worry too much about looking like a school girl when matching brogues and socks. Still, I found it quite fun and it made me feel super girlie – which was unexpected in a way since brogues are quite manly. I wouldn’t usually consider wearing brogues in the summer, but lately I’ve developed a “why not?” attitude towards everything. So I went on the lookout for a pair of light looking brogues, found just what I was looking for in River Island and matched them a pair of light pink K by Karl Lagerfeld shorts and, most importantly, my yellow knitted socks from Topshop. Nothing like being spot on with the sorbet colours trend this season, right?
