Costa Rica sunshine and the true meaning of luxury

Something about the sun warms not only our skin, but also the soul. Hello blog world. The last couple of months have taken me to Nashville, Vegas, Atlanta, Milan, Lugano, and Costa Rica. Wrapping up an intense travel season, I have a moment to reflect on the adventures had and memories made. Here’s another snippet from Costa Rica – an annual international travel tradition with myself and a few friends. photography:JOSH WOLFE MUSIC | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | denim shorts:LEVI | location:VILLA TRANQUILA, COSTA RICA   Each year, we choose a new destination where we enjoy all of the local food, sights and leisure we can soak up in 10 days. Each a true luxury to experience, this was no exception. Our caravan of 18 companions flew into San Jose, where we spent a night at a resort enjoying late night bites, a local casino, and a night view of the tropical poolside.

luxury chunky sneaker style by jeffrey campbell from shopbop

that extra chunky sneaker style tho

Like it thick? The biggest statement of 2018 fashion trends (pun intended) is an exaggerated, extra chunky sneaker. Luxury fashion leader Balenciaga paved the streets extra wide with the launch of their now infamous Triple S Trainers for women. Now sold out in stores and across nearly every site across the web, if you were lucky enough to get your hands on a pair, hold on with a double grip. Missed out? Fret not. Fashion is an evolution, and Balenciaga took a leap on this one that started a wave of changes throughout the fashion universe. Prada, Maison Margiela and Gucci were quick on the draw with their own iconic chunky sneakers, and fast fashion brands like Jeffrey Campbell and Acne were close behind with an array of “dad shoes” styles in every color and height to suit your desires. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:iPHONE X | jeans c/o:PARKER SMITH | sneakers c/o:SHOPBOP   Looking for something minimal and white to offset the fast fashion trend with something more sustainable for seasons to come, I wasted …

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.
