Right now is the perfect time to go through the archives. There are so many moments that still need to make it to NATALIE OFF DUTY and I will be using this weekend to roll them out for you for your daily dose of inspiration. These are from December in Brazil. I was in town for a press trip and campaign with Brazilian Footwear in Maceio. Though we were shooting and working a lot, the team made sure there was plenty of downtime to explore and adventure. I never laughed so hard in my life. We had the best crew! Maceio may just be one of my favorite destinations ever. I was absolutely blown away by it’s natural beauty and I really miss the vibrant energy in Brazil! I loved waking up and immediately feeling the heat, opening my balcony, and having my morning coffee by the ocean. I had my very first, very strong, caipirinha. We barbecued lobsters on our boat on the coast of Barra de Sao Miguel, Alagoas. I floated away, caipirinha in hand, in my inflatable raft without a care in the world. But most of all, I miss this last sunset right here on the busy beaches in the heart of Maceio. This was shot just as our trip was coming to a close. I wanted one more second of the Brazilian lifestyle. A dotted bikini. The sand. The sunset. It’s perfect. I feel so lucky that work has brought me to so many amazing and remote locations all over the world. I can’t wait to do it again.
