Over the weekend one of Oklahoma’s favorite citizen athletes, Russell Westbrook, premiered his new Lifestyle Sneakers. This is the second collection Westbrook has worked on with the Jordan brand for famed athletic wear company, Nike. Westbrook has been with the Oklahoma City Thunder ever since the team moved here from Seattle before the 2008-2009 season and we LOVE this guy. He’s an amazing athlete and an amazing person who gives as good as he gets and will be inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame later this Fall with Michael Jordan coming to town to introduce Westbrook at the ceremony. Russell says fashion is very important to him and something he wants to pursue once he’s done playing basketball. His new shoe collection uses wonderful fabrics such as leather, suedes, and camo and colors that can be paired with everything from khakis to denim and definitely add style to your outfit. In the words of RW and his mantra, “Why Not?”. It’s not too early to be thinking Holiday gift giving, here’s a closer look, Enjoy!!! (above image via)

October 3, 2016
I CAN’T believe it’s October, it just doesn’t seem possible that we are headed into the last quarter of another year. Thankfully I love the month of October with its change in the weather, we start eating soup and heartier foods, change out the wardrobe and of course the change in color. Fall and Winter colors are my favorites with oranges, browns, deep reds, navy blue, and hints of gold, so I thought today we would take a look at Fall colors and hopefully be inspired for the days to come over the next several months. I hope wherever you are October finds you healthy and happy and ready for all the madness that is Autumn and the Holidays. Enjoy!!!

Our part of the country is sweltering right now, from Oklahoma to California the temperature is anywhere from 95 to 120 degrees, so what better time to get our your flip flops than now. I don’t wear flip flops a lot except around the house in the summer or poolside but some that saw recently from Havaianas made me stop and rethink my relationship with the Summertime shoe replacement. What caught my eye the other day was a rack of Havaianas flip flops as I was walking through Dillards and the Disney characters I saw on them, I made note of it and came home and looked them up. There are lots of fun choice for both women and men as well as kids of all ages. I personally may need the Peanuts flip flops to wear around the house this Summer, check out the Havaianas website to see all the choices, the ones I’m sharing today are under new arrivals. Enjoy!!!

I have to make a confession, I have a thing for accessories. Whether it’s scarves and gloves in the winter or sunglasses year round, my motto is “it’s the little things that count”. So my love of accessories squealed out loud when I recently discovered the British website London Undercover and their awesome umbrellas or as they refer to them, Solid Stick Umbrellas, especially one type of umbrella they market, the D-LUX Denim Solid Stick Umbrella. The Undercover website says the umbrellas are inspired by French field workers and the indigo dyed brollies (umbrellas) of the early 20th Century. The umbrellas are made of a special cotton denim that is waterproof, they are available in 3 shades of blue, which I’ll share with you, and a solid hickory stick and handle. You can even have up to five initials put on the leather strap of the umbrella. I think these are so sharp and would be a great gift for anyone, year round. Join me for a look at the “brollies” and visit the Undercover website for more umbrellas and info., Enjoy!!!

One of my favorite things to wear these days are No Show Socks, I’ve always loved wearing tennis shoes and loafers with no socks, especially in the hot months, but sadly my feet sweat and I’ve been known to ruin some shoes. Today though you can find all kinds of fashionable and colorful socks that are cut low enough they don’t show above the tops of your shoes, thus No Show. J. Crew has some great choices in No Shows that will make great gifts for Dad, especially since it’s become fashionable for the guys to show some ankle, even in their dressier moments. You may have also noticed that lengths are shorter on some of the pants and jeans and No Show socks are perfect to wear with them. Personally, I’ve gotten to where I wear No Show socks throughout much of the year. Here’s a small selection of J. Crew’s choices in No Show Socks, check out the rest online or in your local store, Enjoy!!!

You can pretty much find a t-shirt that shows your support for any cause, movie and TV show, case in point are socks and t-shirts displaying sigils and saying from Game of Thrones. If your Dad or husband is a GoT fan then you need to check out the HBO website for the hugely popular TV series. Here at our house, we started out as book readers of the Fire and Ice series, long before there was ever any talk of a movie or TV series (yes, we’re those people, the book people) and we LOVE the TV show. I had recently ordered some socks I saw online just for fun and that got me to thinking about Game of Thrones merchandise as gifts and after a little poking around on the internet I found the HBO treasure trove. They have t-shirts for all the major houses as well as shirts with some of the famous dialogue and quips from GoT characters, they also have dress socks with sigils of the house on them, that way you can take Game of Thrones to work with you every day and no one is the wiser, here’s a look at a few of the great merchandise available and remember, “I drink and I read, so I know things.” Enjoy!!!

As you know by now I love Converse tennis shoes, they’re easy to wear, lightweight, fun and now they come in several great designs and colors. I decided for Father’s Day to take a peek at what the latest shoes look like at the iconic shoe brand and I really like what I saw. Whether it’s hightops or traditional sneakers you can find something at Converse, I love the bright colors and fabrics they’re using. They have shoes with stars, rainbow stripes and some gorgeous leather hightops that are quilted ( I may need those) as well as some great slip on sneakers that will be great house shoes. Join me for a run through the great shoes from Converse and hopefully there’s something you’re dad will love, Enjoy!!!

To some, it may be cliché but if Dad enjoys good looking, nice clothes then that’s a natural choice as far as Father’s Day gifts. Massimo Dutti has some beautiful apparel for the warmer months ahead, slacks, Bermuda shorts, shirts, lightweight jackets, and blazers, remember it’s not ALL about neckties. As always the clothes from Massimo Dutti are made with high-quality fabrics in the latest styles. Check out their selections and find something for Dad on his special day, Enjoy!!!

It’s time to start thinking about Sunday, June 19th which is Father’s Day, so I’m going to share some great things I’ve found that’ll make your Dad’s day extra special. Rawlings, of course, is an American based sports equipment company and has been around since 1887 specializing in baseball equipment and if your dad is into baseball or just enjoys anything well made from fine leathers than you need to check out the Rawlings Specialty Leather department on their website. In addition to baseballs and gloves, Rawlings is now producing beautiful leather accessories for men and women, but for the upcoming Father’s Day, we are going to focus on items for Dad. You can pick up most anything for Dad, from a leather chair to iPad covers, wallets of all sizes, organizers and money clips. I love that the items are made from the same leathers as their other products and many of them have great red baseball stitching as an accent, I enjoyed playing little league and high school baseball but maybe not as much as I’m enjoying these pieces, check ’em out for Dad and Enjoy!!!

It’s that time of year here in Oklahoma that some evenings you have to have the heat running to stay comfortable at night but run the air conditioning during the day or it gets hot and stuffy, it snowed back east over the weekend and a chance of more snow later this week. It’s the same way with clothing, you leave in the morning wearing long sleeves or a jacket and come home later with your sleeves rolled up or the jacket in the back seat, Banana Republic has some great pieces to help us navigate the crazy weather from Winter to Spring and early Summer. Take a look at these “New Arrival” lightweight jackets, sweaters and tops and see if there’s anything you might need for warm days and cool nights, Enjoy!!!
