Today is the day we celebrate our father’s. Although those of us who are lucky to be blessed with really wonderful father’s, probably find ourselves celebrating every day. I am eternally grateful for the support, love, and protection y father, John Mitchell, has given me every day of my life. Happy Father’s Day DAD!
Brian Davis has restocked his shop Wooden Sleepers for summer, and by golly is it chock-a-block with goodies.

Above are some of my favorite pieces.
Unis restocked their online shop with a great collection of Fair Ends camp caps and ball caps. My favorites is the Western Sky and Western Grass prints. Perfect for those summer days.

If you’re in the NYC area this evening, be sure to head over to Clic Bookstore & Gallery to see photographer and friend Mikael Kennedy’s polaroid exhibit Between Dog & Wolf. According to the Mikael, “At the time that I shot these pictures I was starting to feel that border between domestic and wild and I started to look for it in my friends.” Opening reception is this evening from 6-8pm. The exhibit will be up till July 7th, so if you miss tonight make an effort to check it out before it goes down. I’ll definitely be making a day trip to NYC soon to be able to catch it.
These videos were too good not to share here on the blog. Keep checking the site for more coming soon.
I’m in love with this tote from Jack Spade. Not only is it available in one of my favorite colors (blaze orange), but it’s lightweight and stows away into a small zippered pouch. When in use, the pouch doubles as an interior pocket. The carry handles and shoulder strap give you carry options not common with stowaway bags. This fun little video explains it all.
The Corsillo boys have amazing us once again with The Hill-Side & Co. The collection consists of collaborations with like-minded brands including Mast Brothers chocolate, Topo Designs, Rancourt & Co., Stanley & Sons, Dana Lee, Left Field, and Sit & Read. From tote bags and accessories to jackets and chairs, each peace displays the impeccable craft and artistry of The Hill-Side and their partnering brands. I have my eye on the above items from the collection and am having a hard time limiting myself to just a couple. Head over to the Hickoree’s Floor Two shop in Brooklyn or the webstore to pick up some pieces from the collection.
