Boston College wore these a kits a couple of weeks ago, but I thought it was appropriate to share today. Plus, the uniform’s for a good cause as they’re partnered up with the Wounded Warriors Project, which is always worth highlighting. The cleats are pretty dope in a Captain America way; almost as cool as my USA flag running shoes that my friend Caroline captured me in.

Shoes: K-Swiss K-Ona [no longer available]. Men’s version here.

Weekend happenings//

+ Re-stocking up on Dye Ties.

+ Lazy afternoon with Abby; she has the right idea.

+ Freaks and Geeks on Netflix.

+ Local Dia de Los Muertos Festival: Crafts, car show, and cold refreshments for the 90*+ weather.

Other notes//

+ Saw Wreck-It Ralph with my brother, and it was so adorable. The short film before the flick is excellent.

+ Beautifully illustrated video on the co-existence of introverts & extroverts.

+ Thank you to Jessica for her post on designer Vega Zaishi Wang because now I can’t stop staring at her designs. Her work is so forward and just downright cool.

+ My dear friend Grace was supposed to run the NYC marathon, which obviously didn’t happen. Despite not running, she’s been busy volunteering for local NYC relief needs. To give your support, text REDCROSS to 90999 for a $10 donation or visit the Red Cross to give.

I’ve got Christmas music* playing non-stop and considering that we don’t have much for winter weather over here, Colbie Caillat’s holiday album fits the bill perfectly.

That said, I’m also looking at swimwear year-round. My dear friend Paula tipped me off to the brand Jolyn. As a synchronized swimmer, she knows how quickly suits can wear out, fade, and lose fit, so I can see why she’s stoked on the brand. Their versatile basics look like instant core closet items, which makes their skull suit collaboration with Laeken just the icing on the cake. Plus, they’re all made in the USA. Good find, Paula!

*I am fully aware of the calendar, but if Starbucks has red cups, it’s a go.
