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. When Pyknic suggested collaborating on my mountain excursion, I jumped at the opportunity. I love the Wet-Hot-American-Summer-vibe of this 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.
Check out Pyknic’s online store here, or visit their flagship if you live near Dowingtown, PA. The dope thing about this brand is not just their food-centric punny products. They also print by hand using eco-friendly inks, and produce their wears in the good ole U S of A. Bravo dudes, you’ve got my vote!
