Mademoiselle Colombe

by French artist by the online alias of kmye-chan. Love the mood of this piece and the shading. I've been a huge fan of her work for years. Plus it's been a while since I've shared some of my favorite artists on this blog :)

foot fetish

I loooove socks. They're so much fun!

Now that stores everywhere are starting to release clothing for the fall season, I've been starting my collection of nice, thick, comfy and cozy socks. My preferences are over-the-knees or thigh highs, because they're incredibly cute, warm, and sexy. Plus they look quite nice with shorts or a mini skirt. Pair them with some boots and you've got a perfect combination for fall! They're also fun to lounge around in at home :)

(Gosh, I can't believe I'm already talking about fall. It's only July! Oh, capitalism.)

Btw, when I mean thigh high stockings, I don't mean the thin, lacy ones that you wear with a garter belt that you surprise your significant other with when they come home from work, I mean these:

These are new arrivals at Gilly Hicks, where I work (I start Tuesday!!!) I want them in every color! :D 

For fall, I recommend warm colors:

I am also quite a fan of legwarmers. Some may say that they're such an 80s thing that's completely out of style, but frankly, I don't give a damn! They were pretty much the staple of my wardrobe during the colder months. Plus they're absolutely adorable underneath knee-high boots.

I have a pair similar to these, except in a darker brown color and they're much longer (they hit just below the knee). I get tons of compliments when I wear them!

Personally, I feel that long socks are so underrated. Where I live, girls tend to rock the dreaded leggings-as-pants trend (along with their North Face jackets and Ugg boots...oh, Seattle), and it's getting boring! Ladies, if you're reading this, I dare you to try these out ;) If you feel like you don't have the legs, you could try layering with wearing nude colored tights underneath. Tights act kind of as a control top, making your legs look slimmer. Plus it keeps you warm when it gets colder!

Places to get awesome socks:

The Sock Monster (local Seattle store, located in Wallingford)

(I don't have a foot fetish, by the way. Haha)

And those shoes.

Amalfi, Italy

During my trip to the Mediterranean, I fell in love with a city.

I would love to spend a summer here! It was exactly what it looks like in the photos. Incredibly peaceful, picturesque, and breathtakingly beautiful.

Also, about my travel blog...I'll update day... lol
