It is Labor Day weekend so while many will be busy out trying to make the most of this last weekend of summer, some of you will be taking advantage of it by lounging around browsing the web. Those are who these are for. Enjoy some of my favorite stories of the week!
Apparently for some fashion isn’t enough, so some fashion labels have opened their own restaurants. Not gonna lie, I would definitely eat at almost all of these.
Who says you need an entire gym full of equipment to get great arms? Now if only I had a dumbbell…
My wife and I are currently knee deep in a kitchen renovation on our new house. It’s nice to see the updates we are making are right on trend (and will be for quite some time).
This week we all got one step closer to a full-fledged Friends reunion (sort of) and it was everything we wanted it to be.
I like my coffee like I like my wine… in liquid form and in a receptacle that can carry it to my mouth. So you won’t see me using any fancy tools or machines with my morning boost but here are 12 products that might help me step up my coffee game.
Have a great (safe) weekend everyone!
The timing of this outfit is pretty perfect considering Details posted an article the other day about the overwhelming prevalence of the navy gingham shirt, and more specifically, the J.Crew navy gingham shirt. So prevalent that it warranted its own Instagram account. It was an interesting article only made more interesting by the fact that yours truly was the lead picture to illustrate the opinion (see below).
It’s a pretty amusing article nonetheless but makes today’s post a little bit ironic since I am wearing a J.Crew navy gingham shirt once again. The thing about the navy gingham shirt is that it goes so well with everything. This time I wore it with black to an outdoor wedding but it can be worn a thousand other ways. Maybe that’s why everyone owns it and maybe that’s why it has its own Instagram account. How many other articles of clothing can you say that about?

What are you all up to this weekend? I’m heading to Vegas with my wife and some friends to see Britney Spears in concert. Should be epic!
Here’s a gathering of some of my favorite links and articles if you’re I to late night (or sometimes early morning) web browsing. Enjoy
This week we lost the great Robin Williams. Here are some little known facts about the legend who will be greatly missed.
Addicted to coffee like me? Then you’ll love these tips for ways to repurpose your used coffee grounds (number is my favorite).
I’m always looking for ways to keep my productivity up while I’m at work and this new technique might be the best thing I’ve stumbled upon. Putting it in action starting Monday.
Looking to eat healthier? Here is a collection of foods that a group of physicians and fitness experts eat daily. I can’t wait to try the hummus curry dressing!
It’s day five! Going off of yesterday’s look and the idea of layering another great way to get the most wear out of your t-shirt, especially as we begin to move into fall is to layer it under a jacket. Whether it’s a denim jacket like I’ve got on here, which has a casual, cool effect, or layered under a blazer, which gives off a more dapper, but equally cool vibe. I added the mint green chinos to keep it light and summery but added the Cat boots because I love boots and it gives the look a little edge.
And, that’s it. One t-shirt and five way to wear it. I thought it would be difficult but I can still think of tons of ways to get use out of this awesome t-shirt so keep an eye out for it in the future!

When it comes to wearing a t-shirt the obvious choice would be to keep it comfortable. After all isn’t that the point of a t-shirt? It’s not supposed to feel confining, or itchy, or heavy… it’s supposed to feel soft, light, and breathable. That’s exactly what this District tee is all about. I chose to pair it with these drawstring cotton shorts which take the comfort of shorts and a t-shirt to a whole new level. Adding a sneaker like these Jack Purcells creates the epitome of what a comfortable “shorts and a tee” sort of outfit should look (and feel) like.

I’ve started collecting my favorite links from the week and compiling them here. They will make for some interesting reading if you’re bored on the weekend and need some help navigating the internet (sometimes don’t you wish someone would just point out the interesting stuff for you?).
Turns out some of my favorite foods (tomatoes, salmon, red wine, etc.) are on the list of foods that will help you stay looking young. Who knew?
There are some lost Dr. Seuss stories that were discovered and about to be published. Critics say they aren’t all that great but I’m dying to read them anyways.
Details painstakingly tasted over 500 new gins to decide which 13 are worth trying. The bottle design alone on some of them makes them worth purchasing.
