Spring Neutrals

SPRINGNEUTRAL3.18.jpg

It's technically Spring, but it totally doesn't feel like it. We are a few days away from Easter Sunday and I am still wearing my heaviest coat! I guess that's why when I styled this shoot for the boys I couldn't quite put them in "Spring" colors - I had to ease my way into brights since the weather is not cooperating.  I love these neutrals though!

THE SHOOT - We were visiting family in Long Island so I put all of the clothes, accessories and boots in the trunk of the car and I knew I had to find a spot to get some clean lines outdoors. I found a parking lot on the side of a mall that had this really cool shadow from the sun setting -see above their heads in this first pic, and in Tristin's walking solo pic below?

THE STYLING - It was all about a hint of Spring with the florals, but stepping back from doing any real Spring/Easter colors. Neutrals are always a great way to transition to new seasons. Tristin has a suede jacket and Tyler's is quilted and an olive green. Love all of the small details you can only see from up close.

In the City with Yamilah

YAMIL7.jpg

THE KIDS: I love getting the opportunity to shoot with other kids, especially girls since I never really have a chance to style them. You may remember gorgeous Yamilah from this shoot. We had so much fun last time that we wanted to definitely work together when she was back in NYC.

BEHIND THE SHOOT:  I love shooting outdoors. I'm not much of a studio person, although I love that I finally have one my own since I bought a house! YAY! We did this shoot in and outdoors since I didn't want the kids to freeze, but I definitely wanted some bright and airy photos.

THE STYLE: Loved styling Yamilah in a slight preppy but sporty look. Her shirt with the bow and the hat dressed her up a bit, but I made it more tween appropriate with the jeans, varsity jacket and converse!

Tristin is a little sophisticated in this one with a long dress coat, but again, I took it down to kid level with a snap back cap and a sweatshirt. Tyler is a little rocker but cool with the jacket and hat. Both boys are rocking the latest Dr. Martens boots - stay tuned for a whole bunch of content on those!

Make Our DIY Adidas Track Jackets

If you been with us for a few years, you know Tristin, Tyler and I love fashion but we are also really into art and DIY projects, just take a look at their YouTube Channel (this video happens to be my favorite DIY because it was made for me!!). When I was styling the boys for the Adidas Adicolor shoot, we thought of a cool idea to create a two-tone jacket! Kids lifestyle website HYPE KIDS loved the idea, and asked us to make a tutorial for them! See Tristin get sewing below and check out the full article here!

Adidas "Adicolor" Kids Track Set

We are all ready for Spring over here at Tristin + Tyler headquarters. I'm definitely over the snow, chilly weather and gray skies.  Perfect timing for Adidas to release their Adidas originals "adicolor" superstar track set for kids.  I was so excited about these outfits that I shot these photos in my home studio at 10pm (yes! I got a studio now!!). I am literally writing this at 1:05am, the boys are knocked out and hubby is by my side. :)  If you're interested, I can share some behind the scenes pics of the set up and how I transformed Tyler's jacket into a two-toned masterpiece!

If you're looking to pick up a track set, note that the pants are SUPER hard to find - at least in NYC. You can order them here.

Tyler Featured In Under Armour HOLIDAY

Screen Shot 2017-12-17 at 10.12.38 AM.png

If you follow us on Instagram, you know that Tyler and I took a trip to Baltimore recently to work on a shoot for Under Armour. He also had a super-sized poster of him in Kohls. Tyler has a huge love affair going on with UA since it's the brand who creates  the sneakers and apparel from Stephen Curry, Tyler's favorite player on the Golden State Warriors. These days basketball is all Tyler does and talks about!  So it's super fitting that he has been working with this brand so much, not to mention their apparel is hot.

Going to Baltimore was fun, but it was definitely odd going away with just one of my boys, I must say.  I was so impressed with Tyler's work ethic and focus. He worked for hours and never had one complaint or issue. It helped that the UA team was super nice and praised him for his professionalism and he got to take home some product he was dying for.  If you're doing any last minute holiday shopping, definitely check out Under Armour, and look for Tyler all over the boys section!

Happy Holidays! xo

Tristin + Tyler's Threads: Fall with Zara Kids

fallzara3.jpg

Fall is my favorite time of year. The weather is perfect, and you can get away with a light leather jacket and some good denim - my two favorite things to wear.  As the boys get older, they definitely pay attention to everything I style them in and they love the written messages on the clothing in Zara's fall line. From "Be Yourself" to "Rock and Roll Life," the kids appreciate clothing that says something about who they are as people and I do too as these messages are super positive. Check it out below and definitely head to Zara for your little dudes, so many options for boys now

Tristin and Tyler's Threads: Sprayground

SPRAYF172.jpg

It's all about backpacks for teens and tweens - actually, its pretty much all about the backpack for all kids. I totally remember freaking out if I couldn't get the perfect one for the start of the new school year. Now? It's cool backpack time ALL. YEAR. LONG. and the boys are huge fans of Sprayground. We love the bags for adults, but you've gotta check out the mini bags for smaller kids - the coolest!

This season we had to get the new DIY pack that you can color in yourself seeing as we love getting creative - Tristin loves it and only decided to color the handles cause the white/black design was so cool. And, if you know Tyler, you know his obsession with the Golden State Warriors so he had to have the bag that repped Steph Curry and his favorite team. 

Are you familiar with Sprayground? If not, get to know them. They've got great bags for kids, adults and some really cute ones for us moms! Let me know if you get one and follow Sprayground Kids on Instagram here!
