Peach In Seattle

Spring might be in the air, but that doesn’t mean we’re home free yet! This season is infamous for unpredictable weather. How is anyone supposed to dress for partly sunny and 70 degrees with a chance of thunder storm? Luckily, Chooka makes rain boots in floral prints that will help you embrace the spring season while preparing you for any weather that lies ahead.

This month we talked with Liang, the voice and stylist behind @peachinseattle, who styled our City Solid Mids in Navy. Something cool about Liang: she's local to Seattle, just like us!

Read a little about her, check out how she styled our boot, and then click on the links below to get the look yourself!

Where are you from?

I grew up in Atlanta, GA and moved to Seattle, WA a year after my college graduation for a job. Everyone asks me if that job was my "dream job" and the answer to that is no. But I am in my "dream career" and I would've never discovered it if I had not moved to the Emerald City!

What do you love most about your city?

The thing I love the most about Seattle is how walk-able the city is. It made learning about each neighborhood and all the cool spots so much easier! Plus, I have very little complaints about the public transit system here.

What do you do for work?

I'm a digital marketing manager specializing in social media strategy. And then I have my blog on the side. I love what I do! It's not always the most fun and, a lot of times, I have to work during key cultural moments like the Super Bowl. But I've learned so much in the last 6 years and I love how the technology is growing as well.

What are your hobbies?

Well, first things first, I love cuddling with my dog (Miki) who I adopted 4 years ago. So being a dog mom is definitely a hobby of mine. I also love working out; whether it be HIIT at the gym or hot yoga where the room gets to 104 degrees. Is eating considered a hobby? Because I also love trying out new restaurants and bars and getting to know my community and the city.

Why did you choose the City Solid Mid in Navy? What do you like about it?

I've always wanted rain boots that are cute and stylish yet practical and one that I would actually wear! It sounds so weird but it's true because I have wide calves and many rain boots don't accommodate that whether it be in size or in style. So what initially drew me to the City Solid Mid boot was the height of the boot shaft - I love that it hits right under my calf. And also, since I am 5' 4", I felt like the mid height would be flattering on me and lengthen my leg line. I absolutely love the buckle detail with the tan trim... I LOVE NAVY WITH TAN! I just feel it looks so clean and classic. Needless to say these boots where MADE for me and my style!

What are your favorite fashion trends for 2018?

I don't believe in getting too carried away with trends because they can change so much very quickly. But I think some of the things I look forward to in Spring and Summer are creamy pastels, bright pops of color and fun ruffles!
