Winter Staples: The Sperry Duck Book

Prepping For A Wintry Mix With Prep Staples

The Duck Boots I’m Loving

With the Holidays behind us, it’s time to get back to our regularly scheduled Winter programming. As much as I love my red plaids, tartans, and buffalo check prints; I like to keep things Wintery but not too Christmas heavy when styling my wardrobe after New Years. In general, my Winter style is all about taking prep classics and adding a little twist to them. Classic houndstooth prints mixed with rugged Native-American prints, slim denim with the cuffs rolled, a classic beanie, and of course – a classic Duck boot and chunky pair of socks. These bad boys from Sperry are my new go-to’s. Trust me, being an East coast kid with preppy roots, I’ve literally owned every pair of Duck boots out there – and I have to say these by far the most comfortable. Gone are the days of clunking around in boots that feel like cinderblocks, no more socks slipping down past my heels, etc…you know the struggles of an old-school Duck Boot. These babies from Sperry not only eliminate all of those pesky boot problem of years gone by, but they are waterproof with a great tread to keep me ready for city slipperiness all day long. Consider these your new south-of-the-ankle Winter staple when looking for a great boot that will give you endless styling opportunities and tons of comfort – finally, prep for all!

Staying Healthy During The Holidays

Staying Healthy During Christmas Break

Holiday Fitness Gear To Bring With You

When heading home for the holidays, I always try and pack light and easy fitness gear to keep me on track while on the road. Lately, it’s been easier than ever to find fitness gear that doubles as killer streetwear to make packing a bit lighter. This year I’m feeling these killer pieces from Reebok, especially these Fury sneaks. Easy to pair with jeans when not in the gym, the detail is amazing and colors are in point. The sage green shorts are a solid choice for breaking a sweat, and when paired with a throwback hoodie and windbreaker, the look is streetwear ready. (Loving the hoodie to wear around the house over Christmas as well!) I’ve linked everything here for you guys as always, happy holidays! (PS: some pieces went on sale!)

Cozy For The Holidays

How To Rock A Cozy Athleisure Look For The Holidays

As much as the holiday season is all about dressing up for events and parties, it’s also about staying cozy while looking cool, chic, & holiday ready. One of the best ways to upgrade any athleisure look for the holiday season is to play with festive texture and pattern. I’m loving these Abercrombie classic joggers paired back to a classic denim shirt and beyond amazing chunky cardigan also from Abercrombie! Not only is this look cozy as ever while inside the house, but will keep you looking cool, relaxed, & festive while running errands, Christmas shopping, etc. Pair with a cool sneaker or boot to take the look outdoors and swap for your favorite slippers when back in the house.

Holiday Must Have: Philips Somneo Sleep & Wake-Up Light

Holiday Gifting Spotlight:

For the Tech (and sleep!) Lover

While my Holiday Gift Guides are right around the corner, I wanted to take a second to highlight one of my holiday must have gifts for the tech lover, the sleep lover, or the lover of waking up well-rested…meet my new best friend, the Philips Somneo. As you all know, I rarely have a day where my schedule is light. Whether in LA or in NYC, my hustle game is strong and great days depend on going to sleep soundly and waking up feeling refreshed. Somneo is the newest piece of health & wellness technology from Philips designed to help you fall asleep relaxed and wake up refreshed. Not only is this bad boy clinically proven to work, but 92% of users find it easier to get out of bed based on independent research.

After a long days work, I’ve been jumping into bed and enjoying the wind-down features of this bright little thing. Somneo is Philips’ first wakeup light with RelaxBreathe, a super smart light-guided feature and sound-guided wind-down function to help me drift to sleep faster. I’ve been playing with the different rythyms of light & sound with my  breathing for a calm and chill transition from my busy days to your sweet dreams.

You guys know I am obsessed with what decor elements I work into my interior scheme, and Somneo is a seamless addition to my home. The killer sleek design basically replaces my nightstand reading light with a gorgeous modern look.

So how exactly does this baby work? Somneo stimulates a gorgeous natural sunrise with the light gradually increasing before wake up time until my room is filled with bright light while the sunset simulation program prepares your bod to sleep by gradually decreasing light and sound to duration that you set. Very futuristic, I know!

If you’re looking for a unique yet powerful (and useful!) gift that’s bound to be a hit with just about anyone, look no further – honestly, I love it. I’ve linked it here for you all as well! x – Preston

Varsity Inspired Fall Styling

Take A Cue From The Ivy Leaguers:

Polo University Collection by Polo Ralph Lauren

Nothing says Fall in New York like a classic varsity inspired look. When

putting a vintage inspired look together, don’t be afraid to mix colors

and patterns…the look should feel effortlessly cool! A varsity jacket is

the perfect piece to ground this type of look. I love the details across the

sleeves and chest on this one from Polo Ralph Lauren, perfect to pair

with a great patchwork sweatpant (this pair is also Polo Ralph Lauren…

and beyond comfortable!), and thrown on top of a preppy Oxford

shirt / crewneck combo. (keep in mind that you’ll want to go with more

neutral, chill colors for your sweatshirt and Oxford shirt to keep the look

chic and stylish). For accessories it’s all about a classic pair of cream

sneakers, a vintage watch & timeless sunglasses.

Cashmere Crewneck: The Ultimate Fall Staple

The One Piece You Can’t Live Without

With Summer temps fading away and crisp Fall days ahead, it’s time to stock up on the classic essentials that will take from Fall through Winter & beyond. This cashmere crewneck sweater from Uniqlo is a piece I can not live without. (If you follow me on Insta – you are all well aware of my crazy obsession with Uniqlo lol) Perfectly cozy for cool fall nights and chilly winter days, yet breathable and light for when the sun peaks, this bad boy will not let you down. One of my favorite ways to wear this wardrobe staple is paired back with other classics (think stretch selvedge jeans, a sharp striped shirt, and a chic pair of slippers). For something more sporty, try pairing this baby with a great pair of black joggers and a killer white sneaker. As much as us New Yorkers love a black moment (trust me you’ll want this in black too), it’s available in a rainbow of other colors, linked here for you guys.
