This spring, greenery is giving us life at SCOUT HQ and beyond! Our Chief Creative Officer and Co-founder, Deb, wanted to soften the hardened edges of our go-go-go metropolitan lives with some organic and romantic motifs for spring and summer alike. Bright and rejuvenating leafy greens are popping up on all the runways—and on our products too. We can’t get enough of these colorful and natural vibes after all that winter we’ve suffered through.
Our Chief Creative Officer, Deb Waterman Johns, and the SCOUT photography team recently traveled to the Florida panhandle for a little photoshoot (keep an eye out for some of the great shots), and we couldn’t be happier to report back on their travels. With all the recent talk of polar vortexes, winter weather warnings, and day after day of gray, everyone was definitely in need of some bright, fresh, and fun spring product and content, so it was only fitting that the team headed to one of the dreamiest destinations this side of the gulf where bare feet and sandy floors rule.
Ever wonder where our Chief Creative Officer, Deborah Waterman Johns, gets her boundless energy and inspiration for our lines and collections? Join us this week for a little jet setting and favorite hangouts in Milan, Pairs, and London. Come fly with us!
It’s safe to say that most of our current winter wardrobes can best be described as “ashen,” and the need for a splash of color is beginning to feel pretty necessary, if not a dire fashion emergency. Our meteorologists at HQ will have you know that despite these cold and cloudy weather conditions, there are Signs of Hope. It may be the third week of February, but at SCOUT, Spring/Summer 2019 is in full and vibrant swing thanks to our newest colorblocked friends.
With an atmosphere that reads cool, contemporary, bohemian, modern, southern, and traditional all at once, Austin, Texas couldn’t have been a more intriguing and exciting destination for our Spring/Summer 2019 catalog photoshoot. With an ever-expanding foodie culture, rich music scene, and affinity for murals, wall art, and creative spaces in general, there’s a definite feeling of freedom in the Austin city air (or, as our Chief Creative Officer, Deb Waterman Johns, calls it “the boho cowboy vibes”). Austin’s irresistible vibrancy and quirkiness are among several reasons this city felt spot-on for a SCOUT photoshoot.
Let’s be real, Valentine’s Day is a pretty polarizing holiday. You either love it or loathe it. And it’s nearly impossible to avoid thanks to Walgreens and CVS, Zales and Jared, and the omnipresent social media platforms we click through all day long. Whether you’ve already laid out your dream V-Day outfit that seamlessly transitions you from work to happy hour to dinner, or you’ve added a work-from-home notification on your Outlook calendar for the entirety of next week, the masterminds at SCOUT HQ have concocted just the remedy—what we like to call a “happy”—to unite both parties. So, let’s talk about the perfect contradiction that is black hearts.
Got a case of the late January sads? Allow us to introduce you to the newest member of the “seasonless” clothing movement: WHITE denim. White jeans are the perfect foil to the gray mood of winter. So, have no fear, sullen snowflakes, winter whites are here, and li’l Debbie is going to school you on how to rock neutral looks that will have you feeling like yourself again.
With Wednesday’s release of the new Spring/Summer 2019 Collection, it’s only appropriate we shine a glorious, blue light on our newest solid: DENIM. We often forget how highly functional, seasonless, and well worth the splurge it is. Luckily for all you SCOUT cowgirls, our newest denim products won’t break the bank or split the old wallet at the seams.
It’s the third week of January, so there’s no denying everyone and their mother is in dire need of a little pick me up. Whether it’s a spicy wardrobe piece, fresh pair of sneakies, or a brand spankin’ new lint roller (lint rollers are highly underrated)—we all crave a mini-revamp to really get that New Year train chugging.
Five dining dreams, fantasies, and resolutions for 2019:
1. Eat more cool stuff. Duh. We’ll help you get started with our juicy list of dining establishments in San Francisco, New York, and DC. Shout out to Tucker and Gibson Johns for the good looks in San Fran and NY
2. Actually enjoy delicious, savory, and nutritious (or innutritious) food, which leads me to #3...
