4 Wheels . 2 Souls . 1 Fin // Amuse Society in NZ

All Pieces by Amuse Society

It all started with a dream -- a dream of a ladies road trip through unfamiliar lands. Carly had been booked for work in New Zealand for months, but it wasn't until two weeks before she left that I decided to jump on board and take part in the adventure. Neither of us had been to NZ, and so at the end of November 2014, Carly and I embarked on a voyage through the North Island in search of simplicity, serendipity, and of course...swell. We called our journey: 

4 Wheels . 2 Souls. 1 Fin  

We booked a 1969 VW bus and for two weeks we traveled with the beautiful blue "Mystery Machine" as our sanctuary -- her welded cheeks and bright, beady eyes ripe for a good time. She was the epitome of possibility; the tour guide, the prophet. She would lead us into the most beautiful crevasses of lush countryside we had ever seen. We ate, slept, and explored in full Vanlife fashion, never even thinking to book a hotel or venture away from the road. From Shipwrecks Bay to Mount Maunganui, to Raglan back up to Whangamatta, we chased the most beautiful, jade hued wavelets a girl could dream of, thriving in the mobility and freedom our kombi home had to offer. 

It was then that I realized what an epic packer I have become! With life on the road, minimalism is a must and versatility is key. My Amuse Society pieces became standard attire, a uniform of sorts as their functional fit never sacrifices style. Effortless yet edgy, Amuse is the type of label a traveling minx like me lives in...and makes me feel sexy even if I haven't showered in days ;)

I am beyond stoked to be the newest ambassador of the Amuse Society clan, a group of women who, with their hyphenated titles and limitless aspirations, reject conformity and pave their own path of living, who uniquely identify with their femininity, and ooze effortless style and creativity. #BEACHVIDABLING baby!
