Linda’s Ramblings


Hi Everyone!

Thank you so much for following and loving our blog. You guys make us feel ever so special! :)

My name is Linda Arhin and I am the cofounder of Spread and this blog. My partner and I were inspired to create a safe place where authentic and transparent connections with brands we love were nurtured. I grew (and still am) tired of insincere ads with people claiming to love brands only to find out they were paid to say so. Whatever happened to experiencing the brand first before recommending it? With Spread, our vision is to be the place for real authentic experiences, discussions, and relationships to develop with the brands we love. I’m excited to be part of the regular “cast” here on the blog. I’ve titled my segment “Linda’s Ramblings” because as in real life, I ramble on and on and on about everything fashion! And can’t wait to hear about your ramblings too! Let’s have fun about our passion for fashion and style.

P.S If you are wondering who that adorable puppy is, she’s Charlie. Isn’t she a doll?

Chat soon (in two weeks!)

Fashion Friday: A Warm Knitted Jumper

Happy Friday fashionistas! I hope everyone had a great week. If you’re looking for some inspiration for the weekend, you’ve come to the right place :).

I love this look because it’s warm, casual and very diverse. You can pair it with tights or jeans, boots or heels and really layer the outfit any way you want!

It all starts with this cute cable knit jumper from Boohoo. It’s warm, stylish and can be thrown over anything – or be a stand alone piece to build upon. Esmeralda has a gorgeous hat, which she bought from a market in Kansas City. I’ve included a similar hat by River Island, which can be viewed by clicking on the link below. Lastly, she has some really awesome knee high boots with fringe detailing. Similar Carvela boots can be shopped below as well.

So dress warm, be creative and have yourself a fashionable weekend! Also, I appreciate any feedback you guys have! So if you like what I’m posting, or have any suggestions for what you’d like to see, please feel free to leave me a comment below!
