Lil Kentucky

by Josh Johnson

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Nautica, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Well, here in Kentucky we skipped straight through to winter bypassing my favorite season – fall. To say I find it a bummer would be an understatement, BUT after all, a layer is a layer. So, I’m not complaining too much. Also, I’d much rather have to put on an extra layer or two than be swimming in my sweat as soon as I walk out the door. Who’s with me? To gear up for the cooler temps ahead I’ve started to pull out the coats from the back of the closet and add in additional layering pieces like this puffer vest from Nautica. Best part about this puffer vest? It’s from their latest collection that premiered at NYFWM, AND it’s part of their collaboration with Lil Yachty! This entire collection is inspired by his favorite vintage Nautica styles, and it’s giving me all the 90s vibes – something that I couldn’t be happier about. Paired with a good pair of black skinnies, white hi-tops, and a denim shirt, and you’ve got the perfect outfit IMO. What’s not to love? Not much. Have an affinity…

Red Wine Spritzer

This post has been sponsored by Schweppes®. All thoughts and opinions are my own.So, I have a confession to make. It’s taken me much, much longer than it should have for me to jump on the wine wagon. But now that I’m on board – I’m all in. From Sangrias to a straight up delicious glass of Cabernet Sauvignon I don’t tend to be too picky. And with the cooler weather moving in to stay my current favorite is a riff on a summer staple, a wine spritzer. It’s only fitting though that I swapped out white wine for red wine and added season appropriate flavors like blackberries and cranberries. Schweppe’s® Black Cherry Sparkling Water  is the perfect thing to top of the spritzer with, and the taste just adds to the flavor profile. It’s a win, win. Best part about this recipe? Easily one of the quickest cocktails I’ve shared on the site, and more often than not most ingredients will already be in your house. Except for possibly the fresh fruit and/or the Schweppes Sparkling Water. BUT lucky for you and I, Schweppes Sparkling Water is now available at your local Walmart. Meaning it’s easier than ever to…

Classic White

Sponsored by Finish Line and ShopStyle What a crazy couple of weeks y’all BUT in the best way(s) possible. I’ve been spending the majority of my time on the road and loving every minute of it. One thing that makes those travel days easier? Shoes that are both functional and happen to look good, that’s what. Like the Reebok pair I’m wearing today that I recently picked up at Finish Line. They’ve been on my feet essentially every day since they came in the mail the other day, and I don’t see them going anywhere any time soon. Seriously can’t go wrong with a classic white sneak, especially with a good pair of jeans and a flannel. Who’s with me? Shop Some of My Favorite Reebok Styles Here: <br />

Kung Pao Shrimp Tacos

This post has been sponsored by Sponsored by P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Writing this post while sitting on my balcony in the Dominican Republic on a much-needed vacation and loving every minute of it. The last few months have been insane for me, and this week off in the sun and sand is just what the doctored ordered. Oddly enough this is my first “vacation” since I started blogging full-time, and while I’m still working (obviously) it’s still nice to be doing so by the beach. Sure, I travel a lot for work, but those trips aren’t exactly a chance for me to work poolside while getting a tan. So this week I’m fully taking advantage of the option to work poolside, after my morning dip in the ocean. It’s not a bad way to live, that’s for sure. I 100% understand why folks move down this way. Everyone is friendly, the water is crystal clear, and the sun is almost always out. Consider me sold. But before I headed south of the border I had a chance to recreate a recipe that I recently got to enjoy back home at a local pop-up…

Layering Hacks

Sponsored by Zappos The weather this week has been absolutely amazing y’all. Like 50s in the morning and sunny and 60s in the afternoons. In other words, my absolute favorite kind of weather for multiple reasons. Like warm coffee on cold mornings, jeans and flannels on repeat, boots out of the back of the closet, and layering pieces back in rotation. Because there’s nothing like that combo to get me in the fall spirit.  My latest addition to the layering arsenal? from Smartwool. They come in a variety of colors, and they’re the perfect mix of function and fashion. Perfect for keeping me warm on those cooler mornings and able to stand alone as a top-notch tee when it warms up, and I’m ready to lose the flannel. Also because one can never have too many solid black shirts.
