Me I’m Supa Fly

Making Athletic Apparel Everyday Apparel  

Lately it’s been all about comfort for me, and athletic wear as everyday wear is definitely a trend I can get on board with. Bombers/baseball jackets continue to be a staple of mine so I’m loving the throwback feel of this Adidas jacket - hello Missy Elliot circa late 90s right?! And now that mesh is trending I think I can safely say I’ll be living in basketball shorts for the duration of the summer, which is great since they go oh-so-well with with sneakers - an obsession of mine which doesn’t seem to be dying as evidenced by my recent New Balance acquisition. So how do you feel about sportswear infiltrating the mainstream? Leave a comment after the post!

Is It Fall Yet?

Because My Wardrobe Seems To Think So  

Usually August is the actual worst month of a New York City summer. It’s hot and humid, and the subways…don’t even get me started. But last week we had a bit of a “cool” spell that really had me looking forward to fall weather and all the sartorial pleasures that come with it - like layering, and boots, and jackets, and SHOPPING! I recently picked up some new fall staples and took advantage of the cool weather to break them out a season early. For this look I paired a really awesome lightweight fishtail parka with a pair of dark denim - two things I plan on wearing well into the cooler months - and ditched my usual canvas sneakers in favor of something a little more elegant to add a touch of #classandelegance. What are you most excited to wear this fall?

What Not To Wear On A Date

#ForeverAlone Has A New Look & It Comes In The Form Of Fisherman Pants  

I’m probably committing several fashion crimes with this one look but YOLO. Birkenstocks, baggy drop crocth pants that are generally unflattering, and a semi oversized cropped tee that would resemble a football pinney if it were mesh. I believe that checks everything off the list for being totally undateable. Either way, if I’m gonna be single, might as well be comfortable right?

Travel Essentials For Your Summer Getaway  

Last weekend I had the pleasure of checking out the Baxter of California pop-up shop at the beautiful Surf Lodge in Montauk, NY.  It was an awesome weekend of delicious dinners, days at the pool and beach, and of course some lessons in men’s grooming including a personal hair consultation by the Baxter team. Thankfully, I had packed everything I needed for the busy weekend because nothing’s worse than feeling unprepared. So with more warm weekends still ahead of us, I thought I’d share with you just a few of my favorite travel essentials so you can start thinking about that next getaway. 

  • Wheeled Carry-on Luggage - Save the shoulder and back pain for sunburn. Luggage with wheels is worth waiting for the elevator especially if you pack like me.
  • Canvas Tote - Perfect for carrying everything you need when you’re running around or going to the beach/pool
  • Laptop Case - If you’re bringing your laptop, you’re gonna want to protect it. Zero Gravity makes some really cute cases so you can have fun with your tech accessories.
  • Dopp Kitt - The prepacked dopp kit by Baxter has basically everything you need to stay well-groomed on your trip. Order one online before your next vacay and save yourself the last minute trip to Duane Reade
  • Clothes - Duh. My rule is always more is more but just make sure you can carry it all (see first travel essential above).
