The museum scene in Philadelphia is strong. From the Philadelphia Museum of Art to the Mutter Museum and back to The Barnes, there is enough to keep busy for days. One of my favorite spots to stop at when I’m in the City of Brotherly Love is The Barnes Foundation. Inside houses a large collection of post-impressionist and early modern paintings. Outside a neutral barrier much more simplistic than the paintings inside.

This look combines weekend ease with technical ability. The jacket is from the DYNE, a new menswear brand focused on techy fabrics and clothing functionality. Eggshell blue pops against the neutral exterior and the simplistic track pants and sneakers. Every now and then I love to hang up my standard black blazer and go for an athletic inspired look.

City Hall City Stroll

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!
