a week in review

So much has happened in the past week, I hardly know where to start. NYC is now my home away from home. The first week and a half working the new job is officially under the belt, last week spent at the home office in NYC, and this week the pleasure of working from home. Quite honestly, I don’t know which I prefer. The flashing lights, exciting nights, and endless new adventures of the city will always make me feel alive. But then again, being able to work in my PJ’s isn’t bad either… In review, I’m grateful for the opportunity to have the best of both worlds for the time being, and plan to spend a great deal of the new year practicing appreciation for all of the many blessings in life – especially the people who have truly impacted me in so many beautiful ways. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | white denim c/o:PARKER SMITH | kicks:ADIDAS ORIGINALS | hair extensions c/o:IRRESISTIBLE ME | iphone case c/o:GMYLE | rosegold bar ring c/o:STAR HARVEST …

faded

The elephant keeps walking as the dogs keep barking. Something they don’t teach you in business class. This adage from India came from my partner in crime, and I will continue to keep the words in heart. With the growth of success, comes an onslaught of negativity. And no, I’m not talking about constructive criticism that helps you grow. I’m talking about the truly nasty, nonfactual, and unprofessional based nagging and manipulation of situations with seemingly no purpose or cause. You’ve probably worked with a few such people in your life, and if you continue to grow in a path of success, you can probably expect a lot more. While the spirit’s first reaction may be to reflect the attitude, the best advise I’ve received: The elephant keeps walking as the dogs keep barking. The fact of the matter is, you’ll never be able to train the dogs. Instead, an elephant walks steadily through the streets, seemingly unaffected by the barking around them. Focus on your goals and how to achieve them. The rest around you, is just noise fading away. photography:KUNDAN …

hey there slick

Apparently have an unquenchable taste for all-black lately. I swear I’ll branch out later this week… maybe. I’ve been musing over Instagram’s never ending inspirations, and really feeling the knee-ripped jeans and succulent vibes. Unfortunately, I don’t have a green thumb, so I’ll have to live sans pop of spiny greenery for now. However, here’s my nod to western undertones, the minimalist’s edition of course. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | top:EXPRESS | jeans:ROCKSTAR | bucket bag c/o:THE LEATHER COLLECTIVE | silk scarf c/o:VèVèlle | timepiece c/o:FJORD | boots c/o:OTBT By far my favorite bag silhouette of the year, introducing my very first (and favorite) bucket bag from The Leather Collective. Hand crafted hide, this piece has been my go-to since it arrived. (was that just an adorable, unplanned rhyme… yes… yes it was.) What I like about it: bucket bags roomy enough to haul around my daily equipment needs, without being as bulky as a tote. Plus I’m a huge sucker for rich leather, so this was a no brainer for me. Their designs have a nice …

a new york minute

Just returned from the city for possibly the best New York Shoe Show yet. Now that I’ve laid eyes on our Spring 2016 samples, I await with bated breath to show them to the world. Makes it feel as if this summer has already come and gone. Life has been bursting forward at an unbelievable rate. They say it gets faster as time goes on… I really hope they’re lying… If you’re constantly on the go (or just killing your phone battery with your Instagram obsession) this little gem from Lepow may just save your day. After all, you’ll want it to last for every New York minute. With the rush of preparing last minute projects for the trip, packing came down to pretty much throwing everything in a bag and hoping basic needs would be covered. My new travel buddy came in handy several times. Meet Poki. A sleek tech piece from Lepow that packs enough punch for a couple extra phone charges between stops. I vow to never leave my home without it. photography:YOURS TRULY | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | portable charger c/o:LEPOW | …

no parking

Totally unplanned post, but had to stop along side of the road to enjoy a bit of the newly morphed fall scenery. I’m not much of a bright-colors person myself (as you can see by the B&W photos choice of the day… oh yeah and everything else I wear) but something about the bright oranges and yellows of fall with the smells of dry leaves and the last of the cut grass – yum. Don’t worry, I’m not turning into the Pumpkin Spice Latte, scarves with everything, throwing leaves in the air type chica (you know who you are) <insert menacing face> Just playing… love you girls. But for real, I’ll stick with my black coffee and not-quite-as-enthusiastic enjoyment of the fall season. Wearing: black denim moto vest that’s by Kill City. I actually got this from TJMax (my heart’s true weakness) but took a look at their site today to link – they have a modest collection of nice things in denim and leather. Can’t say for the rest of their items, but I …
