Banana Republic – Your Life. Styled.

June 20, 2016

I recently was able to check out a couple items from Banana Republic’s newer line which features slimmer fits that work much better for my chicken legs and skeleton-like body lol! The Fulton Skinny Chinos this short sleeve shirt in XS fits so much better than Banana from years past. And you know they are always having a sale, like right now, so grab some for yourself.

A Few Days in the Desert

June 19, 2016

Last week we headed to the high desert with two of our best friends to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, a new house and job (for them), an engagement, and Father’s Day. But really we just hung out in an amazing secluded AirBnB (if you’re new to AirBnB use this link for $25 off!!). Although it lacked cell service and WiFi (which proved to be more annoying than we thought because of all the work we all had to do online), it was amazing. The hot tub had the best view! We visited our favorite spots in Yucca and Joshua Tree and pretty much just relaxed. Well, as much as you can with a 10 month old that is. I brought along my new Away Carry-On and it worked out perfectly! I ended up being able to fit a lot more in there than I thought.

Tee: Free Spirit Tee – Bad Revival – $35
Short Sleeve Shirt: J. Crew Factory
Long Sleeve Shirt: Delave Irish Linen Shirt – $36
Suitcase: The Carry-On – Away (c/o)

Father’s Day with Fossil

June 16, 2016

I was recently able to check out the new Fossil Townsman automatic mechanical watch. The leather strap is so awesome because it’s worn perfectly to make it look vintage or like I’ve had it for years already. The watch is also powered by your movement so you don’t have to change the battery. And it’s cool because you can see right through the watch on the front and back and see all the intricate detailing that went into the watch. Still looking for a great Father’s Day gift? Check it out! Use my code TM20 for a discount too!

Father’s Day with Gap Factory

June 13, 2016

Continuing on my Father’s Day guides I bring you this awesome shirt, pants, and baby onesie from Gap Factory! The short sleeve shirt is perfect for the warmer weather and how cute is this damn onesie? I love that Gap Factory has stuff for the whole family. My son and I rocked our Gap Factory digs on a recent trip to Palm Springs and we stayed cool in the heat. And I’ve worn this shirt about 4 times since then. Check out the new summer stuff online or in store!

Thanks to Gap Factory for sponsoring this post!

Father’s Day with The Art of Shaving

June 9, 2016

Now that I am a dad I have to consider the traditions and teachings I want to pass down to my son. One of the things I look forward to showing him is how to shave. It’s one of those quintessential experiences that is unique to fathers and sons and it is definitely something I don’t want to miss. I teamed up with The Art of Shaving to bring you a fun little shoot with my son and me. All of the products from The Art of Shaving come from mostly natural ingredients and utilize essential oils. So you aren’t putting a bunch of crap on your face (or elsewhere) and it won’t irritate your skin. I love their traditional approach to shaving, too, including using shaving brushes to apply cream. Really takes you back in time to moustaches and barber poles. They also have a new line of beard products for those of us that don’t shave completely but want to keep their beard nice. If you’re looking for some nice grooming products for yourself or your dad for Father’s Day, definitely check out The Art of Shaving.

Here are some of my favorites from The Art of Shaving:
