how to start your sustainable wardrobe

Posted on March 6, 2018

With spring semi-officially on the way, we thought now would be as good a time as ever to talk about transitioning from a cluttered, over-compensating, full-to-the-brim closet (if you’re like I was), to a minimalist, sustainably-driven one. I’m not going to say it’s super easy, but I am going to say it’s not that hard. Depending on how much clothing you have at the moment this could be an afternoon project or a weekend-long one.   Either way, even thoseRead More

heading home & what’s next for us 

Posted on December 4, 2017

  Just five or six months ago, I remember sitting down to write out the big announcement that we were leaving Boston to travel the world indefinitely. As soon as I hit “post” I felt like we’d crossed an invisible demarcation line, as if our lives had just entered a new phase; a phase that came with the sometimes exciting, sometimes daunting certainty that everything was about to be different. But in truth, our lives didn’t change when we hitRead More

our day trip to oia, santorini

Posted on October 6, 2017

  The whole week Porter and I were on Serifos and Folegandros we went back and forth about whether or not we should take a day trip to Santorini. I had never been, so I was all in favor, but, at the same time, day trips when you already live a full-time traveling lifestyle can be exhausting…and expensive. Up until the day before we went, we were fluctuating. A windstorm hit Greece pretty hard last week, though, so the weatherRead More

  What I’m Wearing: Will & Bear William Brown Hat   One of our biggest criteria when we’re looking for a brand we want to get excited about is that they out-design competitors in their field that don’t apply the ethical and environmental standards we personally believe in. This isn’t always an easy task. More often than not, you find companies or fashion labels that focus only on design. And it shows. Their products are usually incredibly good-looking, but qualityRead More

coco-mat eco residences serifos, greece

Posted on September 29, 2017

  After a four night stay, we’ve just left our first Greek island, Serifos, and reached our second, Folegandros. Serifos was our first right-on-the-water stop, and Porter and I both agree it felt so good to be somewhere that had such a vacation-mindset. We swam every day, ate amazing Greek food, went for early morning runs and sunset bike rides, and basically just took some time to debrief what our first month of traveling was like, talk about where weRead More
