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. In the meantime, here’s the scoop on this hot …

luxury fashion capsule wardrobe tips

this is where I leave you

The past couple of months have been an arduous challenge in time management, making a personal oasis essential for survival. It’s been overwhelming at times, but then I often think that’s what I live for. Moving into a new house, undertaking new challenges, and shifting towards some fresh starts has all but kept me in flight at any moment of the day. But at last, my new home has come together, with a beautiful open studio space for my work and plenty of space designed exquisitely for myself. The transition was difficult, as change often is. New beginnings are also an end, and many aspects of that evolution were bittersweet. But endings should not be sad. Rather, they should be a celebration of something beautiful. The past does not melt into the abyss, part of it stays with us forever. I am forever grateful for the places and experiences that I came from, for each moment in the present time, and the continuation to the imminent future ahead. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | …

t&n ballet flats review

everyday luxury | T&N ballet flats review

Simplicity is a rare treasure in life. Webster describes it as the “the quality of being easy to understand or use.” It’s a natural component of what one would consider an everyday luxury of the minimalist. Straightforward, understated, and a support of one’s lifestyle. T&N is one brand that captures the essence of just that. In this T&N ballet flats review, we will cover just what simplicity in footwear means for you, including a detailed personal review of my experience with the comfort, quality and components of their classic ballet flat. About T&N It’s always a paramount preface for me to start all product reviews with an introduction to the story behind the brand. There is a lot you can understand about a product line or collection if you first understand the concepts and principals they were built from. I encourage you before making any purchasing decisions to first research into the brand’s history, get in the head of their designer, and then dive deeper into what brands align with your lifestyle priorities. T&N was …

What’s on my Farfetch Black Friday wish list and how to score yours

Black Friday is just around the corner, and you know what that means – it’s time to grab your luxury fashion essentials for the season, at the best prices you’re likely to see them year-round. Luxury fashion can be an admittedly expensive habit, one I relish to the utmost no doubt. However, I have learned you get what you pay for, and if you’re going to be getting a lot of use out of your purchases, your price-per-wear is probably better when you invest in quality pieces that fit into your lifestyle. And not only are luxury pieces an investment when chosen wisely, that investment can double up quick when you snag said pieces at a bargain price. That’s never done quite as well as Black Friday, when retailers mark down the vast majority of their products for the biggest day in retail all year.
