Throwback to February in California when the weather felt like Summer. It was my first time in California, but definitely not my last. I was there a couple months back shooting some sick new spring/summer 17′ styles for TOMS in Venice Beach. If you think TOMS only consists of those comfy classic slip ons, think again! They have completely developed as a brand – now carrying accessories, apparel and expanding their line of footwear. One of my favorties being the Lenox sneaker. I can’t get over the woven detail on the side, adding a little extra flair to the suede. You know it’s love when you own two different colors of the same sneaker. I mean hey, a boy needs options!!!

Spring has sprung here in New York which means I’m slowly transitioning out of my darker colors. Can you tell I l may be drawn towards a more neutral palette? Banana Republic has some great classic pieces this season that will make your Spring a little more comfortable and fun. I love the style of this polo with the buttons completely down the middle, so decided to keep it open like a cardigan. With it just at the beginning of warmer weather, adding this silk/cotton blend cardigan was the best touch of layering.

Who knew staying fit could be chic and stylish? Especially with the athleisure trend sky rocketing! Whenever I’m working out, I like to track my distance in time so naturally, I’ve teamed up with Amazfit for just that reason. Their Pace smart-watch is perfect for my detailed workout routine. While at the gym, I typically start off with a 2-3 mile run which my Amazfit will track the: distance, time, pace, heart rate, speed and how many calories I’ve burn during that time. Sure the average treadmill tracks this information for you, but I like the fact this goes with me wherever I go.

Also, no more working out with your phone in hand (which is probably the most annoying part of my workout). You can load up your music to the internal storage of the watch and run phone free! The coolest thing about the smart-watch is the built in GPS. This smart-watch can track your routine which will track your daily distance. Summer is almost around the corner so stay fit and grab a Pace running smart-watch of your own! You can recieve 20% off with the code: ‘FINDYOURFIT’

Shopping for the perfect boot for the winter season is a struggle. Luckily, I struck gold with these comfortable boots from Dr. Martens’ new Lite collection. This unisex boot is a part of an revolutionary new line of products that include an ultra-lightweight sole. The sole is super lightweight and slip resistance because of a wicking SoftWair Technology Insole, padded collar, and thick mesh and foam tongue.
While you can style these many different ways, I decided to take the casual approach while in Brooklyn. A simple waffle sweater, paired with fitted chino pants, rolled up just enough to show off the height of the boot.

If you’re anything like me, when you love something so much and it just so happens to comes in multiple colors….you take advantage! I’ll be transitioning the brown ones into my spring wardrobe and wearing them similar to how I’m currently wearing them now. Minus the jacket and minus the thick sweater contingent on if it’s not freezing!
