Latvian Socks

Sweater weather has returned; this wool cardigan hasn't seen the light of day for many, many months. It wasn't quite cool enough for both a sweater and tights, so I opted for these knee high linen socks instead. Linen socks, you ask? Yes, and not just any linen socks either -- these were handmade in Latvia, a country known for it's quality linen. I bought them from a street vendor in Riga. I should really wear these more, but I need to figure out a better way of holding them up than simply covering them with boots.

Cardigan: Noa Noa
Belt: from a fdiffernt Noa Noa cardi
Skirt: La Redoute
Boots: Bata

Hollywood tape!

I love your outfit today! The pattern on the sweater is so pretty, the skirt is great, the blues look pretty with the skirt and I love the boots and socks with the skirt.

That cardigan's pattern is a true work of art - lovely.

I always like your outfits. But I am also seriously digging your hair color. Can you do a closer shot so I can see how your highlights are placed? (I'm sorry,is that totally weird? I just want new highlights and yours look like what I want)

Sounds like some sock garters are in order! And did I mention that I LOVE the new hair? LOVE.

Beautiful sweater!
Now for the sock dilemma... you could go 18th-century-style and use small garters that look like belts or sashes.
Check out one of my favorite stores, for great 18th and 19th century reproduction items.
Love your blog and great fashion ideas!

lovely as always- is the underlayer of the skirt attached or another skirt or petticoat?
