Elegant and simple, lavender is the perfect inspiration for a classic bridal look. Slip into Winifred Bean’s breathtaking Petals dress—a silk, scoop-necked bodice flows into a romantic skirt layered in lovely tulle. Bring a blush of color to this gorgeous gown by cinching your waist with a lavender ribbon. Reflect this bloom’s purple hue in your perfectly polished lilac nails, and tuck all your essentials into a lavender clutch. Contrast pale purple accessories with a dark plum Swarovski crystal necklace and black suede booties. And don’t forget your handsome groom—add a splash of lavender to his slate gray suit with a pretty purple linen tie.

Philadelphia often conjures images of our Founding Fathers, cheese-and-meat-loaded sandwiches, and overzealous sports enthusiasts. But, hidden among the cheesesteak joints and hardcore Eagles fans, is a fit Philadelphia ready to get you off your feet.
Lace up your walking shoes and take off on a self-guided tour of Philly’s most historic spots. Channel Benjamin Franklin’s good sense and swing by Totem Brand—this store sells USA-made men’s clothing and accessories that’ll get you looking sharp for a night out on the town. When you’re suited up in Philly’s finest threads, pull up a chair at Tulala’s Garden, a eatery with a seasonal menu inspired by local growers. Philadelphia never misses a beat, and neither should you with your training! Step it up at CrossFit Center City—right in the heart of the City of Brotherly Love. Looking for a more relaxed workout? Dip your paddles in the Schuykill River and get a gorgeous view of this stellar city from the comfort of a rented kayak.

Workdays are a blur, making it tough to find time for fitness. The key to squeezing a quick workout into your hectic day is to simplify: Organize your schedule, manage your time, and carefully pack the bare-minimum of gear for your mad dash to and from the gym. Skip the gym bag altogether, because these bare essentials can easily fit in your purse. Start with Patagonia’s bold green running top which features a built-in bra. Throw on a pair of light shorts, then lace up Merrell’s Vapor Glove running shoes which weigh in at 10 ounces—total. Even during a quick workout, hydration is vital! Bring along Vapur’s collapsible water bottles that roll up and are easy to store when empty. And as you wipe the sweat from your brow and head off to your next appointment, stuff your stinky gym wear into Flight 001’s handy Gym Gear Bag, which separates your sweaty clothes from the clean stuff.

It’s official: The word “Mancation” has its own Wikipedia page, bringing authenticity to this bro-y word. A mancation is any “guys only” excursion taken by male friends, and what guy doesn’t like a chance to kick up his feet and relax for a long weekend?
While on mancation in Lake Tahoe this summer, any mancationer worth his salt knows the importance of packing light and sporting versatile clothes. This ensemble (pictured here) takes you straight off the airplane to Lake Tahoe’s pristine hiking trails. Rep your hometown with City Sports’ Pedal Pusher Philly tee and keep warm on those chilly flights with an ultra-soft jersey hoodie. J. Crew’s Stanton shorts look great, are cozy enough to encourage a mid-flight nap, and hold up while traversing boulders out on the trails. And don’t miss the finishing touches! Killer shades might get you mistaken for a celebrity at baggage claim, and Danner’s hiking boots are a pain to kick off at airport security, but you’ll be thanking your lucky stars you have them once you set off around the lake.
You now have zero excuses to look anything but awesome on your next mancation!
