Yesterday, while browsing around on NYTimes, I ran across an article about Stumptown Stubbies and knew I had to try one. Today, I stopped by my local Stumptown inside of the Ace Hotel and picked up one. 
I’d first like to say that the bottle design is cool. I really like the idea of trying different cold press coffees in this way. Coldness has a way of covering up bad flavors in some libations, but it really does enhance the flavor of coffee. And cold press is my preferred style for the summer, hands down. If you like strong coffee, you’re going to love this. The bottle packs a punch and I recommend splitting it with a partner over ice.

Purple scarves

When summer hits, I can’t help but think about the color purple. And it’s all because of that damn Sartorialist post containing the purple mocs. It sticks in my mind like an earworm. Don’t get me wrong, I love purple. I don’t consider it just a summer color. I like wearing it in all of the seasons. I’m really just tired of thinking about purple shoes and this post was written in an effort to remove my weird purple shoe fixation.

I know that I can’t be the only one with the aforementioned earworm, so I thought I’d throw another option at you. Purple scarves. They come in all kinds of textures and materials, so I’m sure you’ll find one that fits your personal style. You can wear it with most colors, too. I wouldn’t suggest putting purple on purple, but if that’s your thang, more power to yah. For reference, I’ve collected some photos that show how to, and not to, wear your purple scarf. You can find these below. Note: When people ask you where you got the idea to wear a purple scarf, tell ‘em Bieber taught you.

Pretty cool.

Cheesy.

Cheesier.

Cheesiest.

Style tip: Red glasses and a purple scarf is a pretty good combo.

I’m a big fan of Monocle’s essentials guides and so I made my own for our recent excursion to Cabo. The guide contains places to stay, how to get around and the best places to grab a cocktail or bite to eat. Let me know what you think.
BTW: We had a great time. I do recommend it.
