        Yes me too-
        although I love the image of the girl on the top right hand corner!
        She looks so carefree and happy. I love to see people smiling in their shots!
        I like the trend too – maroon socks aren’t too bad!

        Come on, guys, be positive! Maroon socks are really in this autumn/winter. I actually am wearing a pair now with my Oxford shoes. Mines look a little like the ones in the last pic.

    Who knew maroon socks were thought of much at all? Red socks, yes, but maroon? hmmm…..

    Well – I hadn’t had any thoughts about maroon socks. But these pictures make a pretty good case for them! I really like this new “If you’re thinking about” format – inspiring yet gentle way of presenting ideas.

    Oh dear. Hope my husband doesn’t see this, which is ammunition for him when I make tacky comments about his socks and sandals. Wait, wait-maybe it’s Sart-worthy ONLY if the socks are maroon. Is that the message here? Because if your feet are cold in sandals, wear shoes.

      Yes, cashmere or merino… The textile is impotant.

          Thanks. I love fashion for the quality of work of the people, the material. Not the fashion which tells you what to wear.

    The maroon socks are very different and unique. I’m not sure I’m a fan just yet but I do appreciate how unique the look is. I encourage you all to march by the beat of your own drum. Individuality is a beautiful thing:)

    That’s so stylish. At least the new blend will make things more unique. What about maroon leggings? Can I get them somewhere?
