Seekingsunshine.com offers up clothing and accessory tips, along with loads of engaging photos, courtesy of Spokane fashion blogger Annessa Smith. Smith finds photogenic locations around town and easily inhabits them (like here in Riverfront Park), modeling her tastefully curated, approachable styles. Smith, who makes her home in Spokane during the spring and summer months, says she often scores featured clothing from local shops.
Her blog offers a way to express her creativity, but also lends continuity to a peripatetic life. Married to a professional hockey player, Smith usually spends fall and winter months traveling in Europe. "It's nice to talk to people through blogging because we are gone so often," she says. As for the name, "Seeking Sunshine," Smith says it is holdover from her university days in upstate New York. "The climate is very gray and rainy so I was always needing the sunshine." Readers may just find that little ray of sunshine in Smith's twice-weekly posts.
