Closet favorites

Here are a few of my favorite pieces right now (click for larger image). Most are in heavy rotation (it's embarrassing how many days in a row I wore those black Madewell jeans!), and I expect the leather jacket will be as soon temperatures cool down. Ah, the sea of (mostly) neutral colors makes me very happy. I could probably wear any combination here as an outfit!

Sydney Opera House

Today's post is a little departure from what and how I usually shoot. I was happy for a grey and overcast sky one morning in Sydney and wandered around the Opera House, not really sure what I was planning to shoot, since it's a building that has probably been shot from every angle imaginable. I found that I was taken to the details and lines of the building. To me, it was the up-close and more abstract pieces of it that really felt beautiful.

Kanorado Shop Giveaway

The kind folks (Asumi and Kuni) at Kanorado Shop, a Brooklyn-based online store that carries items they love – from their own products all made in New York and one-of-a-kind vintage items – are offering two of my readers this beautiful leather card case. I absolutely love this color of leather and it is incredibly soft to the touch. They generously gifted me one too and I love that I now don't have to burden my normal wallet with all my coffee shop loyalty cards (hah) which I would never remember to bring before. Glad to have easy access to my Metrocard as well!

To enter, please leave a comment and a way to contact you (email preferably). Apologies to my international readers that this giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. I will choose two winners randomly next Monday (8/26) at 11AM.

I hope you'll check out the other goodies on their shop as well. Happy browsing!

UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed. Congrats to commenters #52 and #162, Sharon and Kamile. I have emailed you for mailing address details. Thank you to everyone who entered!

Along the coast

A picturesque walk along the Australian coastline was a fine way to spend my last full day in Sydney. Luisa generously spent her morning with me and took me out to Bondi. I can't believe this is what they call winter. ;)

Apologies for the radio silence here. Juggling work travel and blogging is not my strong suit. So I'll cheat a bit and share some links of things I've been involved with recently —

+ Industry of One did a thorough write-up of me and my background. It's so funny to read about yourself from a third person's perspective.
+ Marlene from Chocolate Cookies and Candies did a fun Q+A with me on somewhat less serious matters.
+ My friend Ashley shot me in my space for an upcoming Rue online feature. Stay tuned! Peek here and here.
+ I participated in Mercedes-Benz's CLA Take the Wheel campaign in Miami last week. It was a campaign shot entirely on iPhone for Instagram and was quite the experience.
+ I made it to the (a site I check daily) homepage for the Club Monaco Fall Social Lookbook shot by Justin Chung back in April. Holy smokes!
+ Another cool cameo – find me on the Spotify app 'Search & Browse' page! Shot by my friend Chris.

Back to regular programming soon! I've got a fun giveaway coming up as well.
