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.

Transitioning to Fall: Denim & Mustard Tones

Nodding To Fall With Denim & Color

While the temps may be steamy here in New York, my mind is racing with thoughts of chunky sweaters & chelsea boots for Fall. Until then, it’s time to start nodding to Fall with great denim & autumn-trend tones even while it’s still warm out there. For denim, it’s all about a vintage, 90’s style wash like these skinnies from Abercrombie. Not only is the wash perfectly aged, but the fit is insane and contain just the right amount of stretch. For shirting, opt for classic oxford-cloth shirts in Fall-ready colors, one of the biggest trends of the season being mustard. This one from Abercrombie is perfectly washed with a killer fit. Throw a varsity-inspired sweater around your waist or shoulders for a little hint at layering (you can always throw in your bag when the temps rise throughout the day).

New Obsession: The Bonobos Italian Performance Suit

The Navy Suit I’ve Been Waiting For

Navy Suit Mens Bonobos

Bonobos Suit Preston Konrad

Preston Konrad Suit Bonobos

I honestly think a well-dressed man can’t have enough classic navy suiting. One of the most versatile suiting options to have in your wardrobe, a chic, slim navy suit will give you the mileage you need in the office while providing you with endless opportunities to break it apart and wear with denim, joggers, etc on the weekend. I thought I had all of my bases covered when it came to navy suiting (hint, there may be more than 5 navy suits in my closet!) until this bad boy fell in to my lap last week. I was given the chance to test drive the new Italian Performance suiting from my friends at Bonobos and all I can say is, WOW. Not only is this bad boy packed with just the right amount of stretch, but the cut is perfectly slim, the fabric is breathable yet luxurious, the color is spot-on, and to top things off – it is under $800! For the same price as a run-of-the-mill mall brand, Bonobos is crushing the game by introducing this luxury suit to the market as such a value. I always say the devil is in the details and these guys hit the nail on the head with wrinkle resistant & water repellent fabric and a shirt-gripping waistband inside of the pants. This baby will have you being the envy of the boardroom and your wallets new best friend.
