This week's featured outfit: band collars and Flyknit Racers for a weekend with my parents. This shot comes from exploring SoHo's ultra chic New Museum, a contemporary art museum on Bowery.



White wall pictures aside, I really enjoyed this chance to show my parents my New York. Midtown? That's for the tourists. There were nobler goals ahead.

Over a whole day's wander, we crisscrossed SoHo, avoiding all the tourist spots and seeking out the best of the neighborhoods. From brunch at Almond to watching the epic Italy-Germany game at one of NYC's best-known sports, I had a truly great time introducing my parents to the version of the city you can't see from a bus tour. Most notably: views like this.


Thanks for visiting, Mom and Dad! I'll see you again soon.
