mistaken identity

25 Apr

57fbf036df6d4b524319ce739cd6cd11When my friend tagged me in an article posted on Facebook and commented, “Jenny, I’m sure you can relate”, I was eager to see what the content was about.  And after reading just only the first few sentences, I felt a whoosh of feeling understood come over me.  Because I too struggle with a case of mistaken identity on a regular basis and it’s profound being able to connect with others who go through the same experience.  Lindsay King-Miller brilliantly articulates and breaks down for us in the article, “My Life as an Invisible Queer”, the vast amount of stereotyping we are all guilty of.  Women who look like men must be gay, right?  And visa versa.  Not the case at all.

I’m feminine and have long hair, I wear make-up and am girly so the amount of times people mistake me for straight is endless.  Once people recognize that I’m married via my engagement ring, I’m constantly asked, “what my husband does?” or “where my husband is” or any other question in the context of what we are discussing referring to my better half.  And I am automatically put in a position where I need to out myself and explain my orientation.  I think to myself how it would be easier just to go along with it, instead of creating an odd moment between myself and asker, but as an out and proud person, that would totally contradict everything I stand for.  So alas, I enter into many situations with strangers, aware that at some point sexuality will come up.  And it’s always about mine.  The discomfort mostly comes from knowing that the other person will be thrown off once I tell them that I’m gay, thus feel bad for making an assumption.  Perhaps a projection on my behalf, but an awkward moment is the inevitable.  It just happened to me recently when in Telluride.  I was at the oxygen bar (YES!  I went to an oxygen bar to refuel.  Those high altitudes are cray!), and the shop owner noticed my ring and innocently asked, “is your husband up on the mountain?”  Familiar with this line of questioning, I corrected her and got the typical, “oh, okay, that’s cool” response, which is always accompanied by a brief moment of silence.  People usually need a minute to collect their thoughts and put the pieces together.

Dina on the other hand doesn’t face quite the same case of mistaken identity because she more appropriately fits the stereotypical profile of what gay women look like.  People on the contrary always just assume she has a wife so don’t even bother asking.  Or I can’t tell you how many times Dina has actually been mistaken for a guy.  We have had full blown conversations with waiters and/or waitresses, them literally referring to her as, “sir” the entire meal.  Now, I know Dina does not have the most feminine fashion sense, but she is a woman through and through.  And it’s unfortunate that people cannot see beyond what she is wearing or how her hair is cut to automatically think they’ve figured it out.  I’m not mad or bitter about these assumptions.  I think we all fall victim to stereotyping at one time or another.  We are human.  In this article however, Lindsay begins a conversation around how none of us can assume anyone’s orientation based on what they look like.  Feminine women can be gay and masculine women could be straight.  And straight men could dress like women and straight women could dress like men.  The beauty of life (and living in this country, particularly) is that we have freedom of expression.  And as our culture evolves and moves forward towards increasing levels of tolerance and acceptance, we will only continue to come in contact with various demonstrations of individuality.  Now is the time to expand your mind, education and understanding.  If not now, then when.

This article is such an important message and helps raise awareness to something you may not have considered before.  I urge you to read on.  Do it for yourself, for your friends, for your family and for all of us that work every day at honoring our soul style.

Click here for the full read.  Linsday explains it better then I ever could have.  If I knew her, I’d thank her to the moon.

spring ahead

23 Apr

spring aheadWhen a new season begins, I like to add newness into my wardrobe to keep things fresh.  And a key strategy is finding items that can easily transition, keeping their shelf life longer then three months.  Items that are “wear now”, can easily be paired down for the warmer months ahead.  What you wear today with boots can be switched out for sandals, and a jacket or cardigan can easily be removed when the temperature starts to climb.  It is all about layering, my friends!  H&M is an ideal destination to snag spring/summer 2014 trends like floral, chambray, crop tops, sheer and fringe because the longevity of these styles’ can be questionable.  The goal is to not break the bank on fast fashion choices.  I hopped on over and pulled together a few current pieces to get you started.  And keep in mind – you do NOT have to wait until memorial day to start wearing white.  Get on it…

shop it:  1. floral tank // 2. fringe crossbody bag // 3. sheer crop top // 4. patterned joggers // 5. floral dress // 6. chambray dress // 7. pleated top

 

travel deeper: part 1.

21 Apr

moab - cover photoAfter editing through my Utah and Colorado photos, I decided to make this post a two-parter.  There was just too much goodness to fit into one write-up.  Consider this part one (of two) in a travel series entitled, “travel deeper”.

As a traditional beach vacation goer or international culture gal, I was skeptical how the adventure in utah would turn out.  When I imagine myself on holiday, either I’m laying by the sea, shopping a local bazaar or visiting a museum.  Not throwing my sneakers on to hike national parks or off-road into the abyss of a canyon.  That said, I decided to rally and keep the hesitation to a minimum.  Not just for Dina but for myself too.  Ready for an emotional and physically charged experience, we entered into moab, Dina with a sense of eagerness and me with an open mind.

DSC_0234DSC_0815As we drove towards the Sorrel River Ranch during sunset, my cynicism began to quickly subside.  The light bouncing off the red rocks was pure magic, immediately taking my breath away.  I was feeling less intimidated by the canyons and ready to embrace the new environment.  The usual head buried in my phone self, easily stayed present.  Our accommodations were epic and the sprawling ranch, with horses, gardens and the colorado river running through it, was perfection.

moab - sorrelDSC_0811Up early the following morning and eager to take on the day, we ate a quick breakfast at EklectiCafe and then headed to Canyonlands National Park.  Canyonlands is enormous, filled with TONS of areas to explore and hikes that range from easy to advanced.  Mapping out your route is essential so lucky for me, Dina had been researching since the crack of dawn.  We hopped in the wrangler, and were on our way to Islands in the Sky to check out Mesa Arch.  I don’t have words that could properly articulate how insane it was, the power of mother nature immediately became evident.  Endless miles of rock formations, natural arches created by erosion and wind, and the La Sal mountains visible in the distance, I was blown away.  It was profound on every level.

DSC_0478DSC_0383After a substantial amount of time taking it all in, we decided (well, Dina decided) to exit via the off-road route as opposed to paved, which was a combination of the high and low point of my trip.  Although considered a safe drive for tourists, it felt anything but.  Narrow roads made out of gravel, steep inclines with hairpin turns and the looming possibility of a rock slide, left me holding on for dear life.  In lieu of literally holding on, I didn’t take any photos that properly represent this part of our excursion, but this youtube video at 6 minutes and 20 seconds (demonstrating the tiny pin hole we had to squeeze our jeep through) and 9 minutes, will give you insight to the full experience.  I trust Dina wholeheartedly, but it wasn’t an enjoyable journey down.  I imagined her hitting the gas instead of breaking while we were declining around a steep bend.  Possibly an irrational fear, but a fear no less.  Proud to have stepped outside of my comfort zone, I was THRILLED when we hit flat land.  I suggested heading to lunch to shake off my nerves, nothing a delicious meal at Twisted Sista’s Cafe couldn’t fix.  Followed by an even more delicious dinner later that night at Desert Bistro, with a locally sourced organic menu.

DSC_0350DSC_0619We hit Arches National Park the next day, with intentions of seeing Balance Rock, Delicate Arch, Double Arch and the Windows.  Still shook up from the anxiety-producing ride down the canyon the prior day, I was apprehensive about going back up.  Biting the bullet, we headed in.  Another day full of beauty and adventure, we pounced from vista to vista taking in the epic views and expansive red rocks.

DSC_0913DSC_0029moab - nature quadDSC_0119We left for Telluride the next morning, not before hitting Love Muffin Cafe for breakfast and Moon Flower natural market to stock up on some food for the week in colorado.  Excited to move on to the next part of the trip which included meeting up with our closet friends, I felt really good about our experience.  Although stepping outside of your comfort zone can be challenging, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it.  It’s a powerful thing to be pushed into circumstances that you, yourself would have never initiated. We cannot grow or evolve unless we stretch beyond what is known and easy and life is about expanding.  We have a choice whether to become what we’ve been handed or move beyond and create something unique.  I can’t say I’ve been converted to a wildlife, adventure gal, but this trip taught me that I am capable and I’m better for having gone through it.  I’m considerably more city then nature, but I was humbled to be in the presence of greatness.  It left me connecting to things I had not expected:  life, Dina and most importantly, myself.

spotlight: katelin sisson

17 Apr

katelin sisson - cover photo - 5On the first day of spring in downtown NYC, I met Katelin Sisson at the cool and cozy restaurant, The Smile for a coffee and some chat.  Waiting outside, I spotted her walk down Bond Street looking relaxed yet super stylish.  Her 8.5 month baby bump was barely noticeable.  A testament to Katelin’s wellness and balanced lifestyle, she looked radiant.  After catching up on typical baby and mama-to-be talk, we discussed yoga, Katelin’s long-time commitment to the practice and her yoga retreat based company, Yoga for Bad People.

Katelin joined the Jivamukti yoga training program in 2006 out of a passion to further understand the mind and body connection and support her already established relationship with sports.  She has been a dedicated athlete her entire life.  With yoga’s foundation rooted in mind and body, she was hooked immediately and recognized how athletics and yoga effectively compliment each other, producing results that nurture both inner and outer selves.  Her focus is on helping others through physical ailments, connecting them back to mental and emotional issues.  “Katelin’s classes work to combine the mechanics of an athlete and the grace of a yogi.”

In 2012, Katelin and co-founder Heather Lilleston whom also trained at the Jivamukti school, launched Yoga for Bad People (YFBP).  Unlike typical retreat programs, YFBP  “seeks out locations around the world that lends itself to quiet time and reflection as well as a multitude of physical activities, athleticism and nightlife.”  The goal is to provide a retreat with no strict set of rules, less rigidity and one that, “our friends are actually going to want to go on”.  The structure of a yoga retreat exists, but without the extremes.  Katelin and Heather are both very “of this world”, recognizing that although yoga is the focus, individuals have their own method to achieving balance in the mind, body and soul experience.  If after taking a yoga class, you’d like to kick back with a margarita while discussing mindfulness and awareness, so be it.  No judgements on this retreat.

Katelin is especially flexing her mind and body connection these days since her first baby with fiance Marcus Antebi, founder of the popular NYC based company Juice Press, is due on May 2nd.   Embarking on the biggest adventure of her life, Katelin’s commitment to a healthy and balanced lifestyle has left her oozing with beauty, strength and grace.  While her body has been going through changes over the last nine months, I wanted to know about her soul, her style and how the relationship between both have been affected by her entrance into motherhood.  Here’s what she had to say…

DSC_0590Katelin, what is Your Soul Style?

Though I have lived in NYC for a bit of time now, I am a New Englander through and through.  NYC has certainly helped me to evolve in terms of my personal style, but I like to keep my childhood and family traditions (blue collar meets the  beach) alive, as well as my background in athletics.  I am a pretty even keeled person but my twelve years in New York has allowed me to gain a healthy edge for lack of a better term.

How do you describe your style?

I think I would describe my personal style as a combination of high fashion mixed with the ever evolving street style. Because of my profession, I am constantly wearing more performance based apparel.  I think the trick is finding the balance between all those different avenues.  So all of that combined?  Mostly I like high quality, comfort and class.  Usually pairing up classics with something new to keep it fresh.

What does your style say about you?

I think it says, “she is laid back, but she cares”

DSC_0542 2

Since you are a yoga teacher, is your style reflective of that?  Does yoga influence your style?

Gosh, I hope not.  Just kidding.  By that I only mean that I try hard not to.  I do like a fair amount of high quality athletic gear and if I have to teach multiple classes in a day it’s helpful to have a very versatile outfit so I don’t have to completely change my clothes ten times per day.  My business partner (Heather Lilleston) and I have been talking about and working on developing a line of day to night, work to dinner yoga gear.  It gets old walking around in black stretch pants all day long. Time to reinvent the “yoga uniform”.  Mostly you have to become a master of layering.  But not it in the weird draping cotton/spandex blend kind of way.  I guess that’s what I meant by, “Gosh, I hope not”.

Did your style evolve over time or has it stayed consistent?

Of course all things evolve.  Earlier in my life I was influenced by my musical tastes, as well as regional relevance (New England winters can be harsh).  But now that I have come into my own here in New York, I think my style has really stayed consistent, depending on the season of course.

You’re expecting a baby in the coming months.  Has your style changed while your body has transformed?

I have actually really enjoyed working my pregnancy into my look.  I feel like the trends worked in my favor.  Cuffed ankle slacks (basically fancy sweatpants) are everywhere.  That said, my style was never very restrictive to begin with (meaning I don’t wear a ton of tight clothing) so I don’t really feel like I have had to change it up too much.  Towards the end, all your shirts, even the long ones become belly shirts so that was/is something to work with, but totally manageable.  I never had to dig too deep into the maternity fashion world.  Though there are a couple decent options.  Hatch is great.

DSC_0568Any advice to women on how to embrace style throughout a pregnancy?

Stick with what is comfortable and don’t be afraid to show that you are pregnant.  That does not mean wear clothes that are too small, but it is certainly no reason to wear a tent!  Have a few things on hand that make you feel great and lock down your shoe game for whatever season you are dealing with.

You’ve lived in NYC for quite some time. Where are your favorite places to shop?

VEDAReformationCreatures of Comfort.  American Two ShotJ.crew and Zara for basics.  And online.  I love some online shopping.

Where do you draw inspiration from?  Do you have a style icon?

I generally get inspired by what I see in the streets, from the construction workers to the Upper East Siders (UES).  For me confidence goes a long way.  My brother Grahm is inspirational as well.  He has a certain ease about his style (he actually is the style example of construction worker meets the UES).  In terms of style icon, I say I don’t have one, but am lucky enough to have very successful friends in the fashion industry, so I tend to wear what they are coming out with – lucky for me.

Do you have any style challenges?

I would say that liking high quality, well made clothes has it’s price, along side the cost of living in a major metropolitan city.  But the good stuff lasts longer. The ole verbiage ” you get what you pay for” rings very true when it comes to clothing and accessories.  Honestly, the greatest challenge is keeping up with the ever evolving fast fashion culture in New York while remaining true to myself in terms of what works for me.

DSC_0602

Do you have  favorite fashion/style moment?

I honestly can’t remember my favorite moment or most amazing outfit.  But I do think there is a specific feeling that comes when you are wearing something that suits you perfectly on a particular day, in a particular moment.  A feeling of confidence and comfort.  That is the style moment I aim for. 

And your worst?

That day when all you can think about is going home to change your clothes.  And the year of my life that I wore raver clothes, oops.

Must have item in your wardrobe?

My VEDA leather sweatpants.  No brainer.  And my black slip on vans. 

Three things people don’t know about you….

I am a soccer (football) super fan.  Manchester United, specifically.  I am also really looking forward to the upcoming World Cup in Brazil.

The girliest thing about me is that I get my nails done without fail, once a week.

I am extremely competitive no matter what it is, a road race or controlling the TV remote, I like to win.

metallic home pic

I have no idea where i am going in this outfit but I hope it’s somewhere fabulous, and hope that time is sometime soon.  I’ve been obsessed with it since the try on session and instagram snap over a month ago.  Spring is a buzzing here in NYC and as far as seasonal trends go, metallic is high up on the list of must-haves. Who says sparkle is just for the holiday season?  Rules are made to be broken, clearly.  The best part about this ensemble is not the mere fact that I was able to find a coordinated top and bottom in the coveted silver metallic color.  It’s that both of these pieces from H&M, together were $65!!!  I swear this may be the best investment I’ve ever made.  I appreciate a luxury item no less then the next person, but when finding exactly what I want for a steal – you can sign me right up, STAT!  The weather is warming here in NYC and this head-to-toe look is begging for a night out, along with other metallics I found on the interweb like this rose gold option from Topshop, an effortless high-low maxi dress from Alice & Olivia, this wear-with-everything cami by Parker, and this green (be still my heart) cropped, embroidered beaut from Zara.

minding your body

11 Apr

IMG_8783 4Have you ever had days where you just feel off?  The past few have been that way for me.  It kicked off on Wednesday night while styling out my ensemble for a shoot yesterday morning.  Even though I’m a stylist, I don’t over think my own clothes on the daily.  I have my uniform and I tend to stick to it.  Like most of us, I’m a creature of habit.  When being photographed though, it can certainly amp the pressure and disrupt the usual ease of getting dressed.  Alas, Wednesday night was the dreaded, “nothing looks good” catastrophe.  As the clothes piled up on my bed, my blood pressure continued to rise and like a ball of yarn unraveling, so was my closet.  I began to sweat, pacing from mirror to mirror expecting the other one to miraculously change how I looked, thus felt.  That never happened.  I’m certain that Dina thinks I’m crazy during these times, but thankfully she’s a saint and if so, keeps it to herself.  After over an hour of trying to put one (yes, one!) outfit together, I retired to a look that I was relatively happy with.  After the hang bar in my closet then decided to collapse, I was beyond done for the evening and needed to relax my mind and figure out why the f*ck I couldn’t get my sh*t together.

After some soul searching and processing about my stressful experience, I recognize that the clothes had nothing to do with how I was feeling.  Other things were on my mind and let’s just call it the ripple effect of mind and body teaming up together.  They are besties and when one is off, so is the other.  For starters I had gone on the scale that morning (something I have been dreading for a while) and like expected, gained a good five pounds.  Nothing that should turn my world upside down but an indicator that my usual habits have been compromised.  For the past three months, I have maintained my diet of healthy, whole foods, but let’s just say I have been eating a WHOLE LOT MORE of them.  My body has been going through some changes as Dina and I embark on the baby making journey (more on that later) so while I’d like to be gentle with myself and forgive the recent binge eating, I also know how important it is to feel comfortable in my skin and body. This week I am back to it (hence the weigh in), but it’ll take some time for things to normalize.  The recent up and down fertility cycles coupled with three weeks of travel have thrown me off in more ways then just physical.  Dina also started her new job on Monday and although I could not be happier and prouder of her, change is occurring and I’ve been unknowingly affected by that too.  I realize that while being a supportive wife and accepting her focus be on the new job, I do miss her.  I’m aware the shift is temporary until she finds the next routine, but until then we are in a transition period and that isn’t always the most comfortable place to be.

Although I woke up yesterday still feeling heavy, the shoot worked out amazingly.  My friend and photographer Candy, is the sweetest and made me smile and feel natural all morning, which is not always easy when you’re standing in front of a camera for hours.  And then I unexpectedly saw the feature I did last summer for Italian brand Ivories was posted on their facebook page and instagram feed which was super exciting.  I’m honored to be a part of their spring/summer 2014 story telling campaign of “women of strong character and individuality, to communicate what is happening now.”  And just as things were starting to look brighter, the mother of annoying things happened when I got home.  As Your Soul Style e-mail subscribers already know, while working yesterday afternoon I accidentally posted an incomplete spotlight interview, not once but two times!  Instead of hitting “save draft”, I hit “publish” TWICE!  It has been well over a year since starting Your Soul Style and this has never happened before.  All in all, another indicator that I’ve not been myself which has resulted in a bit of mindlessness.  Horrified, I sent out a quick message to my subscribers explaining the error.  I know that we all have moments of technical difficulty, but this just added insult to injury after an already rough few days.  I’m praying it’s the first and last time this ever happens.

Life is constantly tilting the scales and the true test is having the ability to recover and get back to the space where things become balanced again.  There will be days where you feel physically off and others when it comes from your head, but regardless of where issues are rooted, our whole system is compromised when a part of us is struggling.  The mind, body and soul are part of a larger machine which needs to constantly work together in order to be as efficient as possible.  The key is not only being aware of the cause of our discomfort, but recognizing like a domino effect, every part of our being is affected by the other.  It is only when we arrive here and accept that, that we can find a place of resolution, growth and evolvement.

TGIF, seriously!  Hoping you have a restful weekend filled with tons of soul, style and love.  xx jenny

staycation: NYC

7 Apr

sincerely julesDespite the return back from our southwest adventure last Monday, today feels like my first day back to it.  Getting into the swing of things has been difficult since Dina was off all last week too.  I’d been vibing off her extended vacation and using it to my advantage.  With that being said, I decided to put off reality for a few more days and we lined up activities chock full of art, culture and cuisine for our remaining time.

And so our staycation began in our home city on Tuesday with a leisurely brunch at Lafayette, one of my new favorite spots to dine.  A Paris meets New York City vibe, the food is right-on.  I had the brisket burger which is not my typical mid-day light fare, but figured why not since we were still in vacay mode.  Dina had the steak tartar, roasted carrot salad and mouth watering deviled eggs that I will surely be ordering in the future.  I’m looking forward to the (hard to find in this city) outdoor space for those inching closer warmer days.  For a quick latte and a scone, the restaurant houses a small french bakery for take-away.  We got last minute tickets to the opera La Sonnambula for that evening.  I’ve never been, but have always wanted to.  Lucky for us, orchestra seats became available and we scooped them up.  Grateful for the experience, I can’t say I’ll be a buying a membership at the Metropolitan Opera House anytime soon.  What’s a stayacation without visiting the spa?  I scheduled a massage at Great Jones and Dina checked out the new thermal baths at AIRE.  Both relaxed, decompressed and unwound, we met up later that evening and took in an early movie.  The Grand Budapest Hotel was a visual feast!  Wes Anderson is a creative genius and the attention to detail with cinematography, storyline, wardrobe, props, etc. was next level.  A quick bite after at Ribalta, a local joint with a gluten free pizza option!  Rare find.  On Friday we hit up the Museum of the City of New York to see the “City As Canvas” graffiti exhibit, featuring Martin Wong’s collection.  A quick train ride up to 103rd street, I recommend the visit.  Such an authentic exhibit which represents much of what the street culture in NYC felt like in the late 70’s and 80’s.  The museum had other worthy to visit exhibits including “Rising Waters” which documents via photographs the events before, during and after Hurricane Sandy.

Over the weekend, we spent time with family, hung-out in Washington Square Park and took in one more delicious meal at Perla on Saturday night to celebrate Dina’s new job.  Today is day one at Google and I am the proudest wife on the planet.  No doubt she is going to kill it.  Although I’m going to miss our endless days of adventure, I’m feeling EXTRA EXTRA grateful for the time we’ve had.  I know how lucky we are.  It’s not often that you get to spend this type of uninterrupted time with the person that you love.  It has been an epic three weeks from Utah to Telluride to exploring our home turf in New York City and I’ve cherished each and every single moment.  The reality of getting back to work is off and running and both of us are ready to dive back in, feeling more rested, replenished and inspired.

Never forget to take the time you need to breathe and reboot.  Sometimes we’re all are on autopilot, and allow ambition and the pressure of success and making money to take the focus away from other important aspects of life.  But by stepping away and giving yourself the space to gain perspective, you will always come back with a new level of appreciation, loving yourself and the people around you (and even your job!) more than before!  Happy Monday!  xx jenny
