black & blue allover

Seattle's weather has been a mixed bag lately. We've had some gorgeous, sunny days that are the perfect mixture of warmth and glow, yet offers that nice, fresh breeze to cool you off without lingering. As many people may not know, Seattle can boast some great weather--especially in the summer months--but it just takes a while to get there.

This was not one of those days.

But... we've had worse.

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with Patrick Leung (http://patrickleung.ca), a lifestyle photographer from Vancouver, BC. He has a great sense of style with shooting and it was very fun to work with him. We hope to bring you another collaboration soon! For this shoot, we had some grey skies, which eventually turned into some misty rain. Again, not the worse that the Seattle skies have brought us.

So, I figured some over-the-knee stockings, leather skirt, and heavy-duty cropped turtleneck sweater would do the trick.

We ran around Capitol Hill, one of my favourite little neighborhoods in this city. It boasts some of the great tucked away bars & restaurants, as well as some great nightlife & late-night bites.
