Here we go with another week of Who is Wearing Nena! With Mother’s Day approaching we thought "why not do a post on a hot mama?" We hunted down Amelia Jones and loved what she had to say. Who better to explain her rad life than Amelia herself!
“Every morning at 6 AM my son brings in his "fi-fi" (blankie), stuffed dragon, sippy cup, jumps in bed with us, and our day gets started! Before having kids, I loved to travel. Standing on the top of Machu Picchu, gazing out at the beautiful ruins, the thrill of a leopard being right outside the car window while on a safari, being inspired by the incredibly talented musicians on the streets of Florence, sprinting down the street in Costa Rica searching for non existent coast guard because my sweet, careless husband got caught in rip tide for the second time. Okay I didn't love that one. Anyway, you get the point! Now that I have kids, and any of you that are mothers know, it is much harder to travel. Just because I don't do it as much, doesn't mean it doesn't burn within me. Happily, I am adjusting.
That has definitely not been the only adjustment since becoming a mom and my Nena bag has been there for all of it! From passport and sand to now diapers and teethers, it has been like a friend to me, keeping me connected to another culture while simultaneously having my back while I’m on this crazy journey as a mom.
I care greatly about esthetics and am passionate about design in all forms. From designing and renovating homes, making home goods, to expressing myself through the way I dress, I’m giddy when things come together in a harmonious and visually pleasing way. So, you can imagine that when looking for a bag these things were very important to me. I love that my Nena bag not only is beautiful, but I can see the integrity in the way that it was made and the materials that were used.”
Does it get more beautifully worded than that? I love when I am able to see hip Mom’s who stay true to their style and passions even though their life style has to change when they have kids. And her pictures are just oh so dreamy! We usually only use 1-2 photos that people send us but this time we just couldn't help ourselves! Loved getting to know another one of our Nena lovers.
