sweat pants and sneaker fashion

sweatpants and sneakers

Currently 38° in Nashville, TN. Back on the road again shooting a promo real for OTBT shoes and visiting some friends along the way. Filming starts at 9:00am, and the predicted forecast is 22°. Goodbye camera hand, you’re about to get frostbite and die. Crazy makes me seek comfort, so I thought I’d share one of my less stylish vices, sweats and sneakers. (What I wish I was wearing next to my fireplace tomorrow). In my defense, sweats and sneakers are making a comeback on the fashion scene, with nostalgic sportswear brand favorites like Champion, Puma and Adidas thriving in the era of athleisure. But it’s not sportswear that sets this fashion trend apart. Sweats themselves (non-athletic wear) are no longer for lazy days at home, they’re actually in vogue. Don’t believe me? I’ve spent the past 2 weeks collecting hundreds of celeb spottings and outfit ideas in the once frowned upon fashion clichés in chic streetwear galore. Check out my Pinterest board for the deets.

But it’s not always easy looking effortlessly chic when you need to be dressed and out the door in 10 minutes. Balancing a full-time career as a creative director and managing a fashion blog on the side can be a challenge – especially when you try to squeeze world travel into the mix. I’d say I’m pretty happy with the balance I’ve found so far, but I’d be lying if I said I walk out the door every day feeling great about the outfit I grabbed. I mean loose jeans and a raggedy sweater from ’09? What was I thinking. I often try to share tips on work life balance as I know many of you understand the struggle is real. Here are a couple tips I incorporate into an (almost) fool proof recipe for fast, wardrobe grabs when you need to get out the door in a hurry and look fab all at the same time. …

life as a fashion blogger

returning to life as a fashion blogger, and introducing hemsmith

Just returned from a journey through India, and resuming once again the lifestyle of a fashion blogger. It’s been a long break, and catching up the the pace of normal life has been a more tremendous undertaking than expected. I can still taste the mouthwatering curries and ample coconut water that was consumed along the way. And the silence feels strange as if I’ve never heard it before. At any rate, getting back to the routine has felt more like  a fresh start, and I’ve spent the past couple of days sorting through trip photos and catching up on the latest on Instagram. But before diving into vacation adventures, I wanted to share with you a discovery I made earlier in the year and have recently had the pleasure of experiencing first hand. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | crop top c/o:HEMSMITH | knot cuff c/o:LUXE BLOGGER | ball ring c/o:EVERY MONDAY | cutout boots c/o:WINDSOR SMITH Introducing Hemsmith, a modern, unisex clothing line of comfortable basics that compliment a minimal wardrobe.
