Being a commuter has been ingrained in my nature since high school. I am one of the few rare birds who actually grew up in San Francisco. I'd commute on the 28 line steps from my high school to get home on most days backpack in tow filled to the brim with books and hello kitty paraphernalia- while rocking an always chic- plaid green uniform. Fast forward to college, where while I did live on campus I was all too familiar with the "commuters" as they were known. Students who commuted into school and left at the end of the day only to come back the following morning. They carried everything they needed around on their person to lead a productive day, without the comforts of home nearby- and dressed a whole lot like what you see above. Backpack, check. Headphones, check. iPhone, check.
This holiday season I am frolicking around town dressed to the nines in my commuter best, as I'm fitted from head to toe in my Moshi. I was introduced to this chic Japanese line by my girls Adrienne and Jackie from Style BFF's and couldn't be more excited as I'm all about chic tech accessories, and this company knows how to deliver on that promise well. I've tested out and commuted in my new Moshi gear for the last few weeks and am super impressed with the wearability and ease in which I have integrated their minimal pieces into my wardrobe. The headphones have even gone with me to LA and Austin and are the most comfortable, and while they aren't marketed as noise canceling they sure blocked out any unwanted noise on both of my last flights!
Today I'm partnering up with Moshi to gift three lucky winners their own pair of Moshi Avanti headphones, leatherette iGlaze iPhone case and Helio lite backpack. All you need to do is follow @Moshi.life and @allergictovanilla on Instagram and tag two friends in the comment. You have until 12/6/16 to participate. Winners will be announced on IG. Good luck!
