Frye Side Zip Boots with Black Jeans and Plaid Shirt

In My Frye

Sponsored by Zappos Y’all, if there’s one boot brand that I keep wearing year in and year out it is Frye and for good reason. They’re the perfect marriage of form and function WITHOUT sacrificing style points. While I’ve never really been a huge fan of side zip boots (mostly because I could never figure out how to style them) this pair has 100% changed my mind. Thus this guys are gonna be on heavy repeat fora bit.  They’re the perfect boots for everything from casual days running errands to taking your date night look to the next level. My favorite way to wear them though? With jeans and a flannel like today. The skinnier the jeans and the bigger the flannel the better. So if you’re looking to take your fall fashion to the next level, here you go. You can’t go wrong with jeans, boots, and flannels. It’s probably all you’ll see me in for the next 4-5 months. Because what’s not to love about that combo?

Marriott Ranch in Hume, Virginia

Marriott Ranch

Life’s been a little all over the place as of late. Between travel, foraying back into dating, and everything in between I’m staying busy. Which is something that I’m definitely not complaining about. But after a few busy couple of weeks a trip to the Marriott Ranch was just what the doctor ordered.  After spending a few days on this gorgeous property with the Fairfield by Marriott team I fell in love with the countryside all over again. From spending the mornings watching the sunrise to eating our dinners and lunches on the lawn this trip will go down as one of my all time favorites.  Not to mention the crew I was on site with were easily some of the best folks I’ve got to travel with. We stayed up late, drank a lot of wine, laughed until our stomachs hurt, and made s’mores. In other words, the trip was a blast from start to finish. Because after all, good travel buds make everything better.  We were on site for the unveiling of the new look for Fairfield by Marriott, and since the ranch inspired the brand it was only fitting to unveil their new look here. After a…

Dr Pepper BBQ Pork Sliders

Dr Pepper BBQ Sliders

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by Dollar General, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. I don’t know about y’all, but the weather lately has NOT been my cup of tea. When this time of year rolls around I’m ready for cooler temps, flannel shirts, and warm, hearty foods. Not to mention the ability to spend time outdoors without breaking a sweat. For activities like farmers markets, street festivals, and of course, tailgating. While I’m not the biggest sports fan out there the vast majority of my friends are, meaning I’m typically along for the ride. Because when food is involved you can bet your bottom dollar that I’ll be close behind – especially when foods like sliders are on the menu. Feel me? Good. Then you’re in luck.  My momma raised me right, meaning that I don’t show up to any function without something in hand. Something my friends both love and hate me for. See I’m one of the few friends in my group that actually knows their way around the kitchen. Oddly enough, I’m also one of the few guys in the group. Guess that’s what happens when you spend the majority…

Casual Fall Fashion with Rockport and Zappos

Back in Black

Sponsored by Zappos The last few weeks have been total whirlwinds but in the best ways possible. I’m traveling quite a bit here lately, and I couldn’t be happier about it! Especially now that the weather is officially cooling down, and I’m able to enjoy the great outdoors once again. It’s no secret that this time of year is my favorite, so it’s no surprise that I’ve been doing a bit of shopping. Zappos has quickly become a favorite of mine lately and for good reason.  Their shipping is insanely fast, as in I order something, and it’s typically out by myself by the next day. Making it the perfect place to shop before heading out on a trip or even getting it delivered to my hotel. Anything to save on having to actual pack, right? Not to mention they’ve got free shipping AND a 365-day return policy. Meaning even with a busy schedule like mine returning pieces that don’t go as planned is a breeze.  My latest haul from Zappos included these Marshall Chukka boots from Rockport. And I’ve got a feeling they’ll be on heavy repeat in the months to come. They’re perfect for dressing up any look,…

How to Have a Hotel Worthy Bathroom At Home

Disclosure: I’m participating in the #HygroCotton campaign with my friends at Carusele, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. If you follow along on Instagram you’ve no doubt are seeing that I’m spending quite a bit of time on the road lately. It’s hands down the best part about this job, and on my latest trip I noticed something. I easily spend an extra 10-15 minutes in the bathroom in hotels than I do at home. Why? Well, they’re always a relaxing and inviting space. At home though? Not so much. So today I’m sharing a few practical ways to have a hotel worthy bathroom at home. Because at the end of the day we all deserve a place that we look forward to relaxing in all the time, not just on vacation. Invest in Quality Towels  It should come as no surprise that investing in quality towels would be at the top of this list. Think about your favorite hotel’s towels. They’re almost always white, lint free, and super plush. All the things that your towels at home should be as well. I recently picked up some new HygroCotton® when I was out shopping, and I’m…
