Summer Leave

Two weeks ago I packed up my belongings and made the 280 mile journey from Maine to New York for a summer internship at Polo Ralph Lauren.

I started blogging last fall as a vehicle to learn about photography, writing and fashion and connect with like-minded people. Over the last nine months I have learned a tremendous amount, met dozens of interesting people and refined my aesthetic taste considerably. Blogging is a way to document my creative process, not a perfected medium for my "work." For the last nine months blogging has been my largest passion and creative outlet.

Dressed up for the first day of work at Polo. I tried to cover all of my bases; Danner hiking boots, Rogues Gallery Bag , LL Bean Chambray, and RRL Jeans.

In order to take full advantage of this opportunity at Polo, I am going to take a break from blogging. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to read my blog, comment on posts and send me supportive emails. I hope that I have some how inspired people to have fun and try new things.

I will continue to post images on The Fat of the Land throughout my summer leave and will resume posting on ART in early August. Go play outside.
