Gloomy Daze

17 June 2011









Lately it has been so gloomy here in Philadelphia, but I have really been enjoying it.
Sometimes I think I am a huge freak of nature because typically overcast skies and rainy
days make me happier than sunny ones. Anyways for these cloudy days I have been
cozying up and watching movies after work and it has been quite nice! I was able to
slip a few outfit pictures in before totally unwinding though. In case you do not know,
I am really obsessed with socks. Striped, dotted or florals sock are my jam. So naturally
I fell in love with these pretty little flowered socks. They are from a brand called Ozone
socks and they have a ton of other pretty little socks for your pretty little feet. They also
have some great OTK socks for the fall too. Paired some floral socks with this girly
dress for a fun and quirky look.

Well I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I am actually going to NYC this weekend
for this NYC/Philly blogger meetup with Veronika. I am totally stoked! Let me know
if any of you lovelies are attending. This will be my first trip to the big apple, actually
so I am really beyond excited. Many, many pictures to come!

So awesome! I agree with you about rainy days being better than sunny ones at times.

I'm just the same way. Oregon is very very rainy, but I adore it. When summer hits, that's when I get gloomy and hide indoors. So you're not alone! xo Have fun in the big city!

According to Annika said...

You look STUNNING, as always! I love how you paired the shoes with the flowered socks, I do that a lot and it can really give an outfit that extra "ummmpfff". ;)

It's so wonderful that you're in NYC right now! I'm going there for three weeks in July - I've never been there before either, though I've wanted to go ever since I was a little girl. Can't wait to read everything about it - and of course see photos, photos, photos!

Love,
Annika

I like your natruality, you always look so... idyllic(I mean that totally positive!) :)
But the socks are a little bit too dark, lighter ones would have done a better contrast.
