Summer of Wanderlust – Luxor Look Book

There is nothing quite like the Egyptian sun.  When the day is long and the sun dips to the horizon, a glow is cast across the land, bathing the ancient and the new in its warmth, as if to connect the past with the present in a single moment.

Blessed to have visited Egypt twice, my favorite city by far is Luxor.  It is home to so many archeological treasures and offers the ultimate journey into ancient Egypt.  On the East Bank of the Nile lies the extensive Luxor and Karnak Temples, where you can get lost in a maze of massive columns covered in hieroglyphics and walk among giant statues of kings past.

Head to the West Bank and you will find the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the second female pharaoh of Egypt and the extraordinary Valley of the Kings where the tombs of pharaohs are burrowed into the mountains.

Luxor is a gift. It was my honor to stand in the presence of history and lay my eyes on another time.  This look book is inspired by the glimmer and mystery of this amazing city and I hope you enjoy it!

Summer of Wanderlust – Mexico City Inspired Look Book

Mexico City is an explosion of color, set against an ornate colonial backdrop.  It’s the oldest capital city in the Americas, founded by the Aztecs in the 1300s and has seen many incarnations in the years since.

It’s a bustling city that wears its history on its streets and in its architecture. This week’s Summer of Wanderlust look book is inspired by the vibrancy of everyday life and the brilliant colors of this city, from the markets to the museums.

Summer of Wanderlust – Alice Springs Look Book

Alice Springs is a small, outpost town from which you can discover the vast, sun kissed landscapes of the Australian Outback.  Mustard mountains burrowed into red earth, dotted with sage colored brush, nature’s paints on the canvas of the Outback.

This is a sacred space where ancient landscapes and ancestral stories are protected by the Aboriginal people for generations to come.  It’s a place of solitude, vastness, connection and contemplation, a planet all it’s own residing on this stretch of earth.

Summer of Wanderlust – Manaus Look Book

Manaus may not be a city you’ve heard of, but it’s one where adventure awaits.  The capital city of the Brazilian state of Amazonas, it’s the departure port for river cruises and expeditions into the Amazon rainforest.  It’s a colonial city set among the lush landscape and this week I am taking inspiration from the dense foliage and brilliant colors of the wildlife for this week’s Summer of Wanderlust look book.
