Just wanted to share more of my favorite shots from my first day in Vancouver when we spent the majority of the day at the top of Grouse Mountain and stayed until the sun went down. It was such a treat for our eyes and state of mind. There’s nothing quite spectacular as being this far up and looking down on the world we live in. A sense of perspective instilled by nature is one of my favorite ways to bring myself back down to earth in any sort of situation.
And make sure to check out our Kiara’s and my Vancouver guide, up on the Free People BLDG 25 blog right now. Check it out HERE.

Fire Engine in Berlin

Found this amazing park in Berlin to spend our last day in the city in. This park just outside the Platz der Republik, home of German Parliament, was such a spectacular escape. I imagined garden gnomes and fairy creatures living amongst the lush green. The Platz der Republik is a great place to go to get an idea of the political background of Germany. A country full of so much wild history. It’s crazy to think all that has happened on these beautiful grounds we walked upon this day.
Our last day in Berlin, we also made sure to stop by our favorite little gritty nook in Berlin Mitte, Haus Schwarzenber. Natalie and I were obsessed with the graffiti and collaging all over the walls. The perfect place to grab a beer on a weekday afternoon.

Stockholm is one of the most magical places to feast one’s eyes on, especially just before the sun begins to set. So many of the residential buildings are painted pastel tones of yellow and pink that match the colors of the sky. So when the sun sets, it’s almost like they merge as one with the sky. So beautiful and inspiring. The streets of Stockholm feel so fresh and clean beneath your feet. No corner lacks a sense of aesthetic. All is light and airy; a cleansing palette for the eyes. It really made me understand the Swedish fashion sensibility so much more. The minimalism and need for clean lines and fresh tones. 
I had such a sweet time dancing through the Stockholm streets in this gorgeous dress by Junim, a label out of Los Angeles. It’s the tone of a sunset when all the colors mix together in such a way to create a subtle explosion of purple haze.

Still so many images I haven’t gotten around to posting yet from our Berlin trip back in September. I miss the feeling of freedom and curiosity one has when venturing into a brand new city. I’m always the one to notice little things particular to every place I’m in, and then have it engraved on my brain and on the watch for them to reappear at unexpected moments. Be it a rugged bike on a street corner. Or the way the street signs angle in a certain way. Or how the locals greet their friends at the coffee shop. Or where the graffiti starts and where it stops and the pastel buildings begin. Or how the french fries are so much crispier in Berlin than they are here. My favorite part of traveling is losing track of time and putting down the map a little bit and exploring by foot, guided by the things that catch your eye along the way. You never know what you are going to find this way, and that is what makes it all exciting. An adventure. Teaches you to be an appreciator of both the things you can relate to and learn from in a city so different, yet also so much the same, as your own. So much of Berlin reminded me of NYC, but so much stood out as uniquely Berlin, whatever that means. Whatever it is, I like it.
