anne fontaine review of bohemian french parisian style

Parisian style and luxury essentials | Anne Fontaine pre-fall collection

Orange crisp leaves mingle with late-summer buds. The very air seems warm in hue. Mid-day still brings out freckles and sun-kissed cheeks, while midnight brings chills and firefly lights. September has arrived, and with it the first signs of fall. A late summer has kept roses and purple blossoms in full bloom, but they won’t last for long. If you could bottle it all and pour its essence into a collection of wearable luxuries, you’d experience the Anne Fontaine pre-fall collection. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | outfits c/o:ANNE FONTAINE   Speckled with potpourri floral prints and exquisite fabrics, Anne Fontaine’s line of luxury fashion pieces are a treat for the romantic at heart.

state cashmere review

something about the feel of cashmere | sustainable fashion

You know when you see a puppy and you can’t help but to dig your fingers into their soft plush fur for a scratch? Pull the sleeves down over your hands, it feels good to sink into a cocoon of luxury. Even in the summer months, there’s something about cashmere that is unlike any other material. What a privilege to experience summer with cool air vents creating a refuge indoors, where we can still afford ourselves the luxury of snuggling down in soft, plushy warmth. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sustainable cashmere sweater c/o:STATE CASHMERE (use code: KRISTINA20 for 20% off) The natural fibers fold together pulled tight by the intricate knitting. Tracing a covered hand over your face, you can almost sink into the sensation. Even cuddling a baby bunny with your bare hands is challenged by this competition of plushness. Cashmere. The kingsize bed of fabrics, cashmere is a wool fiber spun from select goat breads from the mountains. There’s no itch. It’s like fuzzy butter against your skin. While there …

the beauty of white space | change your life with nothing

A break from the mundane, last week’s adventure was a long-form hike up some treacherous grounds for an editorial shoot for Naked Feet shoes. The brand is a footwear label that specializes in unearthing true comfort through simple, luxury style. The concept for the campaign was unbelievable comfort, so these sacchetto styles were shot unbelievable backdrops – namely the Appalachian mountains. photography:JOSH WOLFE MUSIC | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | luxury shoes:NAKED FEET SHOES   The journey itself was an adventure – from long gravel roads to a broken down car and a few miles hiking up the wrong direction, we never actually made it to the destination. But a loss? Far from it. Not only were we able to capture a beautiful part of nature and fashion colliding, we were able to enjoy the luxury of taking work outside the office breathing in the fresh summer air.  Scaling sharp rocks in heels and luxury fashion? Sign me up. Not a soul was spotted up in this remote sanctuary, and the silence was a blessing …

what to pack for London in the summer

what to pack for London this summer

Jet setting to London this summer? Trust me, you’re going to want to do some research on what to pack for London. I referenced Google, friends and travel bloggers for advise on a London packing list before the trip, and decided to make this list of my own based on personal experience on multiple trips to the city. London is a place of beautiful architecture, bustling culture and of course, the prestigious royal family. Rolling green hills, old world architecture, and refined country style was my first experience of London, spending most of the time on the countryside visiting SOHO farmhouse in a dreamy, storybook setting. My most recent travels took me back to the city, staying in and around the main city center of London. There were views of all of the major icons including Big Ben, Buckingham palace, London Eye, Westminster and so much more. We had the chance to see the insider’s view of the Royal Windsor Horse Show from the river along the Queen’s back garden, and were surrounded by press …
