Let’s face the facts - dads are the toughest breed of human to buy gifts for. They have everything they need, and chances are everything they want is unaffordable. My dad officially became cooler than me when he asked me why I still had wires on my headphones. So vintage right? But hey, it’s not about needing anything. Father’s Day is just a chance to celebrate the most important men in our lives, and show a token of our appreciation for he who raised us. So, whether your dad brews his own kombucha or only seems to own one t-shirt - we’ve got you covered with our gift selects.

The Trendy Dad
He just discovered the benefits of bone broth and won’t shut up about it. Hopefully this goes better than his matcha and kombucha phase. Get your dad a Thrive Market membership so he can shop all his boujee products, from chaga mushrooms to collagen, for a fraction of the price.
The Zen Dad
We all drive our dad’s crazy, so here’s an opportunity to calm them down. While he meditates, this headband measures his brain activity. If he’s calm, he’ll hear peaceful weather sounds, and as soon as his mind wanders, stormy weather will sound and guide him back to *insert happy place*. Namaste.
The Simple Dad
Your dad still wears the same green shirt you threw up on as a baby. Yes, we know it’s softer than all his other shirts, but perhaps he could use another for laundry day? Simple dads are usually a sucker for a good deal - how’s $9 a month for this suave t-shirt subscription?
The Old School Dad
If it was your dad’s turn to carpool, you could bet rock radio was the only station allowed. Now the two of you can reminisce over some quality whiskey and Bruce Springsteenon vinyl.
The Stereotypical Dad Dad
Your dad’s favorite words: beers, golf & beers. This siteallows you to build a golfing trip package for him - talk about a hole in one.
The Chef Dad
Your dad has every kitchen utensil in the book — tagine pots galore, mandolins for days and every cookbook on Amazon. He just might not have a donabe pot though ... and you’re not going to refuse an authentic Japanese dinner.
The OCD Dad
Self-explanatory. This gadget makes me want to start cleaning more.
God bless the fashion world for turning the wallflower of bags into the most coveted piece of 2018. What was once popular with European skiers, for the purely practical reason of holding a sandwich and skiers wax, is now found strapped across the waists of the fashion world’s most influential people; and with a subtle name change, the fanny pack is now known as The Belt Bag. Personally, you could sell me on this product with any name - I mean, come on, hands free on the dance floor? Swipe. Check out our seven fanny pack/belt bag/kangaroo pouch selects.

As fashion weeks have concluded, and fashion’s biggest night of the year came clad in stained glass dresses and headwear inspired by the heavens, it’s clear that this season is about rebirthing Catholicism as we know it. We’re taking it’s enchantment, and it’s power and combining it with strong women and artful design. It’s a modern day Renaissance if you will, but how do we make sense of it all? Here are seven ways to incorporate it into your life.Read More
About a year ago, Jennifer Fisher showed up at my house with a straw beach tote embroidered in red with the words "Fuck You and Your Hamptons House." Needless to say, I was obsessed. Cut to today and I'm thrilled to announce our very own exclusive collaboration with Poolside Bags, the brand that brings cheek to the beach and beyond.
Deciding which bag to choose and what we wanted it to say was next to impossible, so we didn't choose one. We chose three. And a hat. Because they are just that good. So please help us welcome the L'Enveloppe (SELECTIVE), Le Shortie (IF YOU KNOW YOU KNOW), Le Cercle (WHERE MY BEACHES AT) and L'Ombre Hat (TASTEMAKER) to the family. Bet you can't pick just one.
Click here to order, and make sure to show us some Insta love with #theselectsummer.
It's Labor Day Eve and as depressed as I am about summer ending, I'm equally as excited about Fall coming. But mostly because it means chunky sweaters and ankle boots (I don't know about you, but I am sick of keeping my pedicure up). SO her are just a few things I'm eyeing at the moment. Let me know what you're adding to your wardrobes for colder weather!
Summer has FINALLY arrived and it's gonna be a scorcher, which means floaty dresses all day, every day. From beach bbq to garden party, these dresses will keep you looking perfect and feeling cool.
We are well on our way to the last official day of summer and the unofficial start of fall. And while temperatures are sure to stay above 80 for the next few weeks, this is the time of the year when we start to dream about jeans, sweaters, boots and jackets. So with that in mind, I compiled a few of my favorite things for fall. At least for now. Enjoy!Read More
