Here is a little behind the scenes look from Breckenridge last week and Aspen this week. From dining outside on shoot days, to shopping at the rad stores in Aspen, we all have a blast traveling together. And that gorgeous blonde is our make-up artist, Gillian who is always rocking the coolest looks no matter where we are. xo
So stoked to be here in Aspen on a photo shoot during the X-Games. But packing for a 9 day adventure that includes; shooting at night, snowboarding in the backcountry and hitting the X-Games, as well as hanging out at The Vice Roy Hotel, having late night cocktails at 39 Degree's bar and eating at the upscale restaurant, "Cash Cash", is always difficult. Damn those airlines and their 50lbs per bag limit!
My go to solution is to always do a "color story" to make packing and getting dressed from day to night a little bit easier. This time I am sticking with warm (and furry) pieces in amazing shades of brown, taupe and gold. The gold was a no brainer, I have so many athletes I am rooting for to get gold at Winter X it just seemed right.
Notes: Sorel Boots have now become a fashion statement in colder climates, Oakley Goggles are sharp in the gold color way, & look great on the mountain or when riding to location on a snowmobile. And I totally had to throw in the Alexander McQueen scarf and the CC Skye bracelet because duh, it's Aspen!
Packing List: All Saints Faslane Jacket, Oakley James Stewart Signature Series Crowbar MX Goggles, All Saints Anatolian Bag, Sorel Joan of Arctic Boot, Alexander McQueen Scarf, All Saints Roche Gilet Vest, Cable Beanie Topshop, Isabel Marant Lilou Striped Socks, CC Skye Mini Spiked Bracelet.
Happy Monday! I'm off to Aspen and the X-Games today to do a 9 day shoot with some rad snowboarders and skiers. If I have any down time I plan on meeting up with friends to see the women's 1/2 pipe competition (Go Gretchen Bleiler!) and since we get to shoot in the back country for 2 days, maybe I will get lucky and get some boarding in myself. Praying for bluebird skies... Have a wonderful week!
At age 13, Laura Dekker said she wanted to solo sail around the world. When Dutch authorities tried to stop her, she ran away at age 14 to pursue her dream. Authorities found her in St. Maarten trying to buy a boat and took her away. Five long court battles later, along with the promise of getting a a bigger boat, and to do correspondence schooling, she was allowed to set sail.
Sixteen years old & 27,000 nautical miles later, Laura and her 38ft boat, Guppy, sailed into the port in St. Maartenyestrerday to set the record for the youngest person to solo sail around the world.
I was stoked when Zach Sunderland did his solo sail around the world and I made sure I was in Marina del Rey when he arrived home from his voyage (at the time he was the youngest person to do so). Ian went to see his sister Abby off on her RTW sailing trip. And I watched, along with everyone else in the world, when she was rescued when her boat capsized after it was hit by large waves, in the Indian Ocean.
And now I am cheering for Lauraand her amazing accomplishment.
So damn cool that young people are doing something extraordinary that they love instead of hanging out at the mall...
OK, I finally broke down and ordered a couple pieces on Jewel Mint the other day. Super impressed with their fast shipping, low prices, trendy pieces and great packaging. Absolutely loving the knuckle buster ring & the spiked bracelet I got!
