This is a very grungy look. My friend made these stockings for me, and by “made”, I mean she cut them up and stuck some safety pins in them, and created this awesome ripped design. I’ve been wanting a pair of ripped stalkings for a while, but couldn’t ever seem to find ones I liked until my friend handed me these. I just love how intricate and distressed they look. Obviously, there is a lot going on with these stockings, so I tried to pair it with fairly basic pieces. I added an old oversized sweater from Anthropologie, my Dr. Martens, and a black panama hat.
It’s finally beginning to feel like Fall in San Francisco. I think this is the hottest summer we have had in years. Typically summer here is windy and foggy, but it’s been strangely hot these past couple months. Not that I’m complaining, I grew up in San Diego, so I absolutely love the heat. It’s funny because I feel like neither of the places I’ve lived in my lifetime really have seasons; San Diego is hot the entire year, and San Francisco is cold and windy most of the year.
Hope you guys like the look 🙂 I love checking out new blogs, so please post yours in the comments section if you have one!
