Just a few weeks ago, I was questioning the existence of a summer as I tapped my feet to the rhythm of raindrops; meanwhile, I finally received a long lost package in the mail. Truly a lost package; I had won some pairs of Ballonet brand socks a while back, and I was so excited to get them. So I waited, and waited, and waited...it turns out that they very well could have traveled around the world and back until they made it into my mail box ;) After all that, you can safely assume that I was surprised to see them! I let my imagination run wild with the photo shoot - did these cotton treasures stealthily evade jaguars in the jungle? Hide in the treetops while the monkeys searched high-and-low for their next fashion accessory? Or maybe I've had a little too much sun for my own good. Nevertheless, I had to try them on for myself.
Ballonet is an amazing brand based out of London, and their styles show off more than just excellent color choice. Among a collection of unique geometric graphics and lovely stripes, my favorites happen to be "Forest" and "Hills." The pair featured in this post is titled, "Pixel" and how appropriately named, with it's tonal-colored blocks of blue. Made from a soft and quality combed cotton blend, I rank this brand as one of my favorites; especially for gift-giving season.
Trying something new, I've added a little movement to my blog; see my first video showing the "Opening Scene" to my Ballonet Sock experience below:
