Being owners of a couple of pugs and avid users of Instagram, it didn't take long for us to stumble across Doug the Pug. The Nashville native is an internet sensation, winning the hearts of over 9 million followers across his social media with his light-hearted and pop culturally relevant photos.
Besides being a New York Times Best Seller, his spoof videos of Stranger Things, Beauty & The Beast, and Spider-Pug, to name a few, have been featured on NBC's The Today Show and all over the internet / social media with over 1 Billion Facebook Video views. Doug has been the star of music videos by Fall Out Boy and Joe Jonas' new group DNCE. He even has a new coloring book out... what doesn't this six-year-old pug do?!

If you follow my Instagram, you probably know that a few weeks ago we flew to Colorado to spend some time in the mountains with our dear friends. My huzb grew up in Denver, so we try to get out there a few times a year. We drove from Denver to our friends' mountain house near Bailey and stayed there over 4th of July weekend. Four days of unreliable wifi was both a blessing and a curse. But we ate some insanely good food (two words: breakfast nachos) and got into a fair share of liquor-fueled-shenanigans. Thank you to our talented buds who cooked for us!
I'm not a big "jeans and a tee" gal on a daily basis, so it's always difficult for me to pack for trips like this. I love the Wet-Hot-American-Summer-vibe of the ringer tee—something about being in nature always takes me back to summer camp. Thankfully this experience had less mosquito bites and cabin pranks. I love that this tee would also work with some wide leg jeans, printed flares, or even overalls. The shirt itself is super soft, and also holds up really well in the wash (although I can't wait for it to show some wear and tear).
When the sun goes down in the mountains it gets a little chilly so I threw on this typographic sweatshirt. I think crewneck sweatshirts look way more polished than hoodies. Hoodies kind of remind me of high school, or like, tech bros. I think crewnecks can look really slick—especially when they're simple yet graphic like this one. Maybe it's the graphic designer in me, but I love the simplicity of a blank canvas with clean typography.

These are just a few of our favorite shots of model @ChaelChip that our photographer Ashley Jensen took for our new Fall 2016 Lookbook. Say what you want about fashion but in our eyes, it is about fun and expressing yourself in that manner. I think that's evident with this quirky statement tee with our 'I Only Brought My Appetite' slogan. Perfect for Thanksgiving!
Nothing accompanies our food themed t-shirts and sweatshirts better than ALL THE FOOD!
But we do love seeing our vintage-inspired graphic tops layered with denim jackets, vintage motorcycle jackets, and flannels. They add another layer of personality to any outfit.

Dashing around New York City with a foodie on a mission was on the agenda this week as our photographer Andrew alongside Skyler from @nycdining on Instagram made their way to Underwest Donuts. Located in Hell's Kitchen on W 47th St, this is no ordinary doughnut shop.
With a kitchen counter inside of a car wash, this is to be noted as Skyler's favorite, #1, MVP doughnut shop in all of New York. It's not just a one-stop shop, it's an experience that according to Skyler will "ignite all the sparks on your tastebuds".
So, like, moving upstairs ASAP?
Popular flavors include Maple Waffle, Coco Raspberry, and Mulled Cider. But trust the foodie Instagram queen and go for the brown butter doughnut - simple, yet powered with flavor.
If you're looking for a different kind of no regrets-sugar explosion-good vibes only experience, then Underwest Donuts is your place. Make sure to stop on by and recreate the shoot for yourself sporting our "Donut Kill My Vibe" tee. No worries, it's crumb proof.
Our Donut Kill My Vibe Tee is also now available through one of our favorite retailers, Modcloth. It's hand printed using eco-friendly waterbased ink on a super comfy, vintage-inspired dolman tee. There's no better feeling than putting on an already broken-in tee with a print that you can't feel. Have you ever put on a stiff t-shirt with a print that feels like thick sandpaper? Yeah... you aren't getting that from us!
This fun donut t-shirt features a grim reaper, a box of donuts, and a "Donut Kill My Vibe" food pun. What else could you possibly want? Oh right, an actual box of donuts to accompany it. That part is on you!
Recently Emily Rose Hannon (@emilyrosehannon on Instagram) styled some of her personal favorite Pyknic women's dolman tees in her own aesthetic. Her "must-have" picks included the Pancakes Please t-shirt, above, and Over Worked Under Caffeinated tee, below.

Ashleigh curated the perfect Halloween costume using our NEW All Black Everything Crewneck Sweatshirt ( get yours HERE ). Sticking to that theme, she accented it with a pair of skinny black denim, military-inspired black boots, a black travel mug, and a black cat half-mask. Stylish yet comfy and it'll keep you warm on a chilly Halloween night. Most importantly all of the pieces, well maybe not the mask, can be used throughout the year.
Eat (black candy), Drink (black coffee), & Be Scary!

Nomaste Tee - Will "downward dog" for a good veggie burger. If namaste is a greeting for people, I'll be busy welcoming all the noms.
Follow Your Gut Tee - Follow your gut for all your life decisions, even if it just leads you to the fridge!
Lazy Sundae Tee - Some Sundays you just want to be lazy and melt the day away.
Another One Bites the Crust - Some sandwiches (with the crust!) are just to die for.
You are most likely seated if you are at the computer but if you are reading this on the phone, you may want to take a seat. I am going to be completely candid, as a kid I wasn't a fan of breakfast *gasp*. Maybe it was a string of vomiting issues at Denny's to the point they probably had a photo of my face along with a note "don't allow this kid to eat here", that did me in?
Not sure why exactly but if the family was at a diner (not Denny's... I grew up in N.J. so we were full of amazing diners) I'd always opt for the lunch menu no matter what the hour. Even though there were hardly ever any foods I would turn down, besides breakfast obviously, my tastes have matured and evolved with time.
A stack of fluffy, homemade pancakes covered with blackberries, powered sugar, and dripping in syrup mean a lot more to me than the taste or the beauty on its surface. To me, "pancakes" mean family since not many are taking the time to just make a whole stack for themselves. It means the comfort of taking my time on weekend mornings with my wife to prepare the breakfast and enjoying it alongside her and our two pugs, Duncan and Sirius Black. Now I'll never skip a weekend breakfast.
