Sharing a couple of snaps from an afternoon in the East Village with Kristina. Sorta like a business-goth skater boy kinda vibe. Kristina brought a beautiful vintage camera to shoot with that belonged to a family member of hers. It reminded me of my dad and how I grew up watching him document family life with his Nikon. He's what you would consider a "hobby" photographer, but his casual yet regular use of a camera is something I admire about him still today. To be the visual record-keeper of a family history, or otherwise.

Despite a snowstorm here in NYC the day after the Spring Equinox, a change of season will surely be on its way soon -- and with that, Festival season! I'm teaming up with Teva, a footwear brand I've worked with over the years <3 to give 5 lucky winners and their friends a pair of Teva Originals and a $100 gift card. 

Enter by following the instructions on this Instagram post. The contest ends 3/30! 

In addition to the giveaway, Teva also asked myself and few other bloggers what our perfect festival style is. You can check out the "Worn Well" feature here

This year, if time allows, I want to make it to the Newport Jazz Festival. I've always somehow missed it in the general summer hooplah, but if I'm able to make my way up this year, you can be sure I'll be bringing my pair of Tevas (or 5) along. 

Autumnal Photo Diary

Around Brooklyn a few weeks ago, I was shooting and spotted this really cool tan and brown van. On my walk, I started seeing similar tones everywhere so I photographed them all for a little Fall story. It feels like it has been FOREVER since I've just picked up a camera and wandered around. I realized I missed it! The iPhone can make me lazy sometimes, I guess, though I do appreciate the ease of mobile photography. Inspiration can strike at any time. You have to be receptive.

My gold Timex "Fairfield" watch complimented my surroundings so well I featured it in my photos. The watch face is so simple and elegant - the design opts for notches instead of numerical symbols. The band is textured and I’ve been wearing this watch around all season. It’s so pretty and affordable, I’m thinking it would make a great gift for watch and jewelry lovers alike. Shop it here
