Photos from Friday night in my favorite sweater that there was no question I was going to bring to New York with me. It’s oversized to the point of being ridiculous but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Had a pretty smooth flight over here and am now trying to get things organized in my hotel room.

This week was kind of a milestone. I went up to see my buddies at RVCA in Costa Mesa and try on the prototypes for the couple pieces that I designed for them and they look so damn good..thank you so much to Kristin (sidenote, totally having a go at the “Sydney short”) and PM for the opportunity to do this! Seeing my name on hang tags is one of the most surreal experiences I’ve had and I cannot wait to show you guys the final product.

And the other half of the news is that I signed with Next, which I’m so so excited about..the second I walked in to meet them we just hit it off. Stoked to see what we can do together.

I’ve always pictured these jeans against the sand for some reason. No shoes required.

Love the athletic look with the gray jersey and slouchy cargo bottoms and the feel that you’re getting a glimpse into a character’s life.

Working on the store today..shooting some pretty rad stuff.

Well I’m still going through our photos (and video footage) from Paris which are chaotically divided between multiple memory cards but here are some shots from our second to last day there. That morning I ended up running in the rain to get to a photo shoot for Elle France (leave it to Colin to snap that frenzied moment so artistically) with photographer Alex Isard. Thankfully he was as gracious about us getting uhm slightly lost on the way there as he was fun to work with. See me juggling my huge bag and my Macbook that they wanted in the shot rather unskillfully as Alex’s assistant looks on.

I found myself wearing multiple pairs of tights to keep warm, this California girl is just as much of a weather wimp as you’d expect. Denim wasn’t too helpful either since I seem to have torn gaping holes into most of my jeans. Buuut I’m gearing up for colder conditions again this Sunday when I fly out to NYC for another (secret for now) shoot that I’m really excited about. It seems spring has not yet arrived in New York? I’ll be there sans Colin so I’ll try to document as best I can…staying till Wednesday but my time isn’t really going to be mine, which means I may not be able to get a glimpse of Topshop’s long-awaited opening but you never know.

And thank you for the sweet comments on the last post, especially the ones about the hair..I’m inspired to play around with it a bit more now.

You can imagine how excited I was when (the now blog-enabled) Topshop sent me an extremely generous package of goodies this week, including THE boots in spring-fresh white and a couple pieces from Kate Moss’ spring collection. I love you Topshop! Can’t wait to raid the US store..
