fathers day

gift guide

this ones for the dads

May 21, 2017

– a state bags backpack (love these bags and love the mission of the company)
– a new york diner map
– a fix it kit
– these are probably too chic for a traditional fireplace, but i love these matchsticks nonetheless
– rag & bone black italian leather sneakers, because a suit looks way cooler paired with these
– a one blade razor starter kit – apparently years of research and innovation went into creating this sleek razor – also, the packagaing is really well done so it makes a beautiful gift
– an old classic, vuarnet x rag & bone distric sunglasses
– the perfect travel on luggage if you don’t want to pay rimowa prices, check out away luggage
– the blunt metro umbrella – its about time that someone took the time to apply some innovation to an umbrella, one that doesn’t reverse itself with an intense wind!
– the new york pizza project book – a photography book about classic new york pizza spots… kind of a no-brainer

fashion, trends

love this stylish daddy! #fathersday w/ #oldnavy

1. hooded twill anorak in navy  /  2. striped jersey tee in navy  /  3. khaki shorts in charcoal  /  4. boat shoes in light brown

normally the kids and i are the subject of all the blog posts, but in the spirit of father’s day, this one is dedicated to nate… the best daddy ever, but of course i am super biased. i am definitely not a professional photographer, but i would like to think these turned out pretty good which means nate has been a pretty good teacher. i was art directing from behind the camera and he kept reminding me to focus the camera… we were quite the pair in the middle of a busy central park!

dads are notoriously hard to shop for i think… unless you happen to be one of the lucky wives or daughters that have men in your life who don’t already buy everything they want when they want–my biggest pet peeve! the reality is, if i bought nate what he really wanted we would be broke because it would probably be a $15,000 bicycle.

anyway! we partnered with old navy on this post to bring you some father’s day gift ideas that will help spruce up his fashion wardrobe this summer. i love LOVE when nate lets me dress him… but, i did keep his taste in mind. nate could literally live in t-shirts and shorts. i think these looks are a great way to make that combo look a bit more “put together.” i think he looks pretty handsome :-)

1. rugby striped tee in dark heather grey  /  2. slim fit twill shorts in berry  /  3. suede flip flops in light brown

1. lightweight striped hoodie in oatmeal  /  2. basic tee in blue  /  3. ripstop shorts in black  /  4. colorblocked canvas sneakers
