Spent some time today at the @thewcs @bronxzoo visiting with conservation photographer @julielarsenmaher . She enlightened me on the work she’s doing plus was kind enough to provide me with a day pass to the zoo. Being a dual purpose outing, figuring out what to wear was a fun challenge. I wanted to be professional and respectful yet it was pouring rain. Had to be practical and classy. This is what I came up with.•Old school @patagonia organic cotton plaid shirt I swoop up when someone was done with it.•The fabulous  Michelle DeCourcy vintage jacket gifted to me by my dear friend @ekdean88 a few years ago and will stay in my wardrobe for years to come.•Wallace & Barnes cotton pants I acquired a few years back and wear at least once a week. While they faded fast, they are holding up great.•Belt I got an estate sale back in the day when I lived in SF.•Boots are @sorelfootwear Sorel is a subsidiary of Columbia Sportswear based in Portland, OR (my home town). It is a brand that values ethical, sustainable manufacturing practices. Plus, they are legendary for their durability and can last up to 10 years.•To finalize the look, I wrapped myself with the green scarf @ramzit gave to me as a thank you gift. He is the one who connected me to Julie so I thought it was a great way to bring the circle around. Green is for tree-hugger. 🌳•While it would be awesome if all animals could be free in their natural environment, the reality is humans have a history of wiping out wildlife. They need our help. The WCS is an established and inspiring wildlife conversation organization doing outstanding work. It was an absolute pleasure to learn more about their mission and to see if there are ways in which I can get involved.

My NYC happy place: the Worn Wear repair station at the UWS @patagonianyc store. Simple fixes, like patches and new zipper heads, are done here. Like this one! A dad came in with his little girl because her Nano Puff had a few holes in the front. I asked if she was OK with me making it special with hearts and pretty colors. When she smiled and gave me the thumbs up, my creative juices jumped for joy. Now she has a one-of-a-kind, custom Nano that’s working like new again. I also think some of her friends will be slightly jealous – which is the point. I will happily make your Patagonia item cooler than the rest to keep you loving it. 🌳🌎🏻Swipe right for before, during and after photos.

Success is so much more than the money you make. It’s about what fills your heart. And you can’t do it alone. The people who surround you – who support you unconditionally – is so much richer than any bank statement. @mrpatrickduffy and I needed help for the SWAP + SKATE and these beautiful people showed up. These words keep running through my head: how blessed I am…how blessed I am. Thanks you @fromsuchfilmsas @abbygainer Ryan and @mappellegiselle for showing up, working hard and bringing such joy into my life. Here’s to knowing that our actions make a difference and together we make an impact (and that dancing to disco along the way makes the journey so much better). #GratefulAsAllFuck

What does a fabulous human and ultimate tree-hugger do on her birthday? @c8tdogma  organizes a volunteer party with @harlemgrown . In honor of the birthday gal, we spent some time today seeding, planting, harvesting, stirring compost, petting chickens and cleaning plant gutters; right smack in the middle of Harlem. I love this place. Check it: sustainable community farms that use solar power. #IsThisHeaven I can’t wait to come back in the spring and see it in bloom. What a fabulous time. Thank you Brenna for making it happen. And Happy Happy Birthday, you beautiful soul. 🌳🦋🌎

I currently can’t talk about Australia without falling apart. I do know it is important that we give them our love and support right now, as well as support those who want to help but are not sure how. I think this repost is a good one.  Please do what you can. 🇦🇺 ・・・Australia is burning and I'm struggling to find the words for my first post back for 2020. Like anyone who has watched the devastation sweeping across our country since September, I am heartbroken, terrified and hopelessly angry at our leader's apathy. Six million hectares have burned and continue to burn with no end in sight. People have lost their lives, homes, towns and have no access to water, food, power, or safety. Tens of thousands of people have fled from the fire-ravaged regions around Australia. Half a billion animals have died, the level of biodiversity loss is still unknown but scientists are fearing the worst. Firefighters are risking their lives every single day under impossible conditions. Now is the time to be generous and help those in desperate need of our support. ⁣⁣Right now the best way we can help is to donate money:⁣The Australian Red Cross Disaster Recovery and Relief⁣ @redcrossau The Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund Salvation Army Disaster Appeal⁣The @nswrfs NSW Rural Fire Service⁣St Vincent de Paul Society Bushfire Appeal⁣ @vinniesshops Victorian Country Fire Association⁣Wires ⁣@foodbankaus is delivering emergency food relief and water to East Gippsland⁣@givit – please do not send unsolicited items – check the lists to see what is needed and where⁣I've put together a full list with links via the link in the bio – No donation is too small – every single dollar helps.⁣⁣To my community who are living in or have family in the affected areas – if you know of other ways we can help, please send me a message so I can share them.
