 We left the puffer coat at home and opted for a layered, heritage moment with a touch of down to keep things warm. Not the most practical shoe choice in the snow, but we’re about to burn our snow boots in a bonfire on 10th avenue, so we had to slam a pair of Tods driving mods on just to remember what they felt like.

Training Day.

Walking to the gym in the winter can really suck. Our shoes are covered in salt and slush just in time for a graceful slip off the treadmill. We like to keep our gym looks layered for easy shedding at the gym while looking good walking to and from. (and we keep our running shoes in the bag for a locker room swap)

Gratuitous Valentine’s Day Post

We can’t wait to move the heavy coats and dark flannels & sweaters into storage for the Spring/Summer. While at least hoping for warm weather, we chose to opt for lighter neutrals in heavier fabrics to keep warm while praying for sun. Cashmere & leather will never let you down. 

#WingtipTip: we’ve taken our classic Hermes belt buckle off of its original strap and paired it with a vintage strap from the Melrose Flea Market in Los Angeles, for a cooler vibe.

Man Tan.

It’s no secret…we use (and really like using) a self tanner.  Winter is perfect time to get your skin out of sick/green zone and into ‘were you just away on vacation?’ zone. 

*Please note…’have you been away on vacation?’ zone is very different from George Hamilton zone (we’ve been guilty of this. don’t be guilty of this).*

We’ve tried everything. The standout winner : (with some runner-ups below). Ready, set, glow. 

FakeBake ‘The Face’ $25.95: 
This stuff is magic. We’re not quite sure what the hell is in it, but all we know is that every time we apply it, we are transported back to our 20’s (on a trip to Miami Beach). Not only is the color awesome, but this stuff gets rid of fine lines and wrinkles (and doesn’t get weirdly clogged in pores like other tanners). Good for all skin types. All of the FakeBake products are amazing BTW.   Get it here.
St. Tropez Everyday / Face: for a more gradual build of a fake tan – give this a shot. $25, shop here

Clinique Non-Streak Bronzer for Men: Clinique is tried and trusted. We found this a bit more prone to a streak here and there, but still great. $19, shop here. 


Blue on blue……on blue.

We’re suckers for some navy….or any shade of blue & were really feeling this monochromatic blue suiting look, paired back to an easy crew neck sweatshirt to keep things less stuffy.
