Shirt: Saturday’s | Pants: G Star Raw | Shoes: K-Swiss |
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Headphones: Skull Candy | Watch: Todd Snyder x Timex

Not that it’s new, but I have an obsession with blue. Whether that Cobalt suit from NOLA or these marine Ray-Bans… I can’t get enough. Shades of blue pair easily together while leaving room for a POP. I paired this look with sneakers from K-Swiss 50th anniversary collection. Digging the blue leather accent on the back – isn’t that a nice touch?! When I wore this outfit I buttoned up the shirt for brunch and let it loose afterwards while strolling by City Hall. Note that the headphones are wireless. Waaaayyy better than loose cords flopping around… thanks, Skull Candy!

3 Accessories for the Business Traveler

Convertible travel pillow, Myllow. Window seat? Aisle seat? The Myllow travel pillow easily changes from a neck pillow to a rectangular pillow in a matter of seconds. Unzip the top, shake the beads and reform into the second pillow.

Shoemerang is a foam shoe horn that you can cut to fit. It easily bends and inserts into shoes to keep them in shape while traveling or even while stored in a closet.

QOR these performance tees are designed to wick, breathe, and dry. Heading from a light workout to a night on the town. Test wearing the QOR and adding a blazer over top. It’s transitional.

SXSW | TEVA Artist Series

In March I went to Austin, Texas to see some of the cool activations happening at SXSW. Knowing I would be walking around a lot, I took a pair of Teva’s new Artist Series sandals with me! It was very fitting for the trip as Leah Duncan, designer of this particular pair, is also based in Austin! Aside from being very comfortable, I love that Teva is giving 10% of each Artist Series sale to kids’ art education programs supported by P.S. ARTS. As a child, art class was one of my favorite times of the day and I often still take time to stop, pull out a notebook and doodle/color for stress relief. Instilling the value of creative thinking in today’s youth is important so kudos to Teva for supporting P.S. ARTS mission while also creating some uber comfy and stylish footwear. At least 5 people stopped me around Austin and said, “I love your Teva sandals!

Before We Spring Forward

Tee: ASOS | Pants: Zara | Coat: Andrew Marc Shoes: Kenneth Cole | Sunglasses: Mont Blanc | Watch: Marco Mavilla

In the winter something about the cold keeps me dressed in a lot of black and neutral colors. With spring around the corner I’m playing with the light and making a graphic statement. I paired this lined t-shirt with my favorite winter coat to keep me warm, but the whole time I wore it I just wanted to throw the coat down and walk around in just the t-shirt! Toward the end of each season I start working in the next season’s styles. Whether that’s wearing fall layers at the first cool breeze in September or attempting to wear just a t-shirt at the beginning of March, the saying goes, “we always want what we don’t have.” If the current temperate means I get to wear this outfit, then I want exactly what I DO have. Cheers to spring temperatures ahead.

Distinct Style at Morimoto


Jacket: Ryan Seacrest Distinction

Vibrant hues line the walls at Morimoto, a restaurant partnership between the Iron Chef and Stephen Starr. It’s quite the experience to indulge in a nine course Omakase tasting menu while the lights behind your date’s head change from intense red to opulent orange to cool blue. Briana and I stopped by just before Valentine’s Day (friend date!) to experience the Omakase meal. My favorite dish was a scallop accompanied with A LOT OF TRUFFLE. I love truffle. After dinner, and after most of our fellow diners left, we stuck around to shoot my dinner jacket by Ryan Seacrest Distinction. The velvet blazer with a satin shawl collar was perfectly suited for the luxurious evening. My all-dark outfit provided a blank canvas as the vibrant hues changed the interior of the room as well as the allure of my attire.
