Gift Guide: Mother’s Day

site header mom

Mother’s Day is less than 2 weeks away so we figured we would put together a curated & tasteful little gift guide for you guys to get ahead of your shopping! While we know you love spoiling mom, we also know that she doesn’t want you to break the bank so we’ve scoured the sites to round up the best gifts for under $150 (all of them super special and most of them much less than that…woot woot!). Whether she is a coffee gal, fitness fanatic, a home-body or a stylista…we’ve got you covered. Enjoy!

We honestly think this is the weather that we are built to exist in. Sunny days like these in New York make us wonder how the hell we ever survived the grey days of Winter in this city. One staple that’s heavy in the rotation these days is the trusty fatigue jacket (based on vintage styles worn in the military). You can never have too many of these (Preston has three…one vintage, one new, one beat to hell). We love this bad boy paired back to a crisp pair of white jeans and a classic indigo striped woven. This look will take you from a casual business meeting to a boozy brunch while keeping you perfectly layered and your look on-point. If you follow Preston on Instagram, you obviously are aware of the velvet slipper obsession. If brave enough, try a cool slipper with this look and if not, a desert chukka boot or throwback sneaker will do the trick.

This past weekend, we packed up and took our new Jack Spade threads to the lakes of Maine. Early Spring must-haves for a New England weekend include anything and everything Nautical. (Think navy cotton sweaters, crisp selvedge denim, your favorite army jacket, sturdy canvas totes and shades of blue upon shades of blue). We are obsessed with the bandana print shirt that PK chose to wear while shooting out on the water on Saturday…(consider this kick-ass shirt your chic chance to get into the bandana trend without looking like a tool from a Coachella Instagram)

One of the key pieces to have on hand for this glorious streak of 60-something days is a trusty denim jacket. This year, we’re saying go for something a bit brighter (and you already have at least one blue version in your closet). This light grey denim jacket by Topman at Nordstrom is perfect for layering over a classic denim shirt and paired back to your favorite slim chinos. Go for a throwback sneaker to keep things modern and updated.

It’s polo shirt weather, boys. Now that we’re in the clear with the rain and chilly temps here in Manhattan, we’re amping up our Spring shopping, snagging the staples first. We love these new ‘white croc’ Lacoste slim polos from Nordstrom. To make your spring polo shirt look less preppy, we say opt for a dark pair of slim jeans and a throwback sneaker for an updated retro look. (If you couldn’t tell, we’re digging the slight amount of stretch in just about everything we’re buying this Spring…these polos have juuuust the right amount).

We’re easing into the work week by holding on to a bit of our weekend outfit vibes. Remember that grey crewneck sweatshirt we told you to get last month? It’s time to grab it. Pair it back to a slim pair of chino joggers and slim charcoal blazer for a comfortable look thats still pulled together and perfectly monochromatic (without entering YEEZY territory). Don’t forget a kick-ass pair of throwback adidas to finish off the look.

If we’re going to have to deal with these crisp (OK, downright cold) days of early Spring, we want to have the right layers. We love the new slim Spring flannels from the Nordstrom mens shop, especially this grey and cream situation (pictured above on Preston).  Paired back to classic slim Levis, a grey chukka boot and a city backpack (packed with umbrella and extra layers, obviously) you’re set for whatever this whack weather may bring you…or for a kick-ass brunch.

We know, we know. Spring is officially here yet it’s still a bit chilly. We’ve been dying to get our hands on new warm weather Spring threads but we’ve had to hold off on the shorts, tees, etc. Instead, we have decided to kick things off by updating the staples…(i.e suiting pieces, ties, slim pants and spring shirts). Preston gave the 1MX fitted shirt a spin from Express and we have to be honest, we’re hooked. The level of stretch is just enough to make a busy day of meetings and hustling a bit easier, and the fit is spot on. Available in 3 fit options, slim, fitted, and modern…this bad boy is perfect for pairing with a slim dress pant, your favorite suit or a skinny jean for grabbing a few drinks after work.  (BTW – these perfectly stretchy guys are buy one get one for $29 bucks…yeah, we grabbed two also).
