For adventure-ready sunglasses, we’re loving the TOMS Traveler: clean design, bendable SOLAFLEX construction. Throw them in your bag and speed off into the horizon, no hard protective case necessary.

Plus, built into every purchase is the brand’s famous one-for-one philanthropy

Just like how buying a pair of TOMS shoes helps a person in need, TOMS ensures each pair of sunglasses sold results in sight-giving assistance to a different person who could use help paying for glasses or ocular medical attention.

We spoke to travel hounds and witnesses to TOMS’ good works John Whitledge, creative director and designer for TOMS eyewear, and Darin Dennee, TOMS eyewear director. They gave us insights (pun intended) into TOMS’ programs in Paraguay, which islands they’re surfing next and where to go when you’re in Shanghai.

And they confirmed the virtual unbreakability of these shades.

Make your festival the bestival with rock-solid #protips from party people who’ve been there and done that. As we motor through our spring road trip to SXSW, McDowell Mountain and Stagecoach music festivals, we’ll be taking these #protips to heart. These are the tips for SXSW. Stay tuned for future installments.

La BBQ is one of the best spots for BBQ in Austin, and what’s great about La BBQ during SXSW is that there’s live music there. La BBQ rivals Franklin’s for best BBQ in the city. They serve BBQ out of a truck until they run out.  There is another truck called the Blue Ox which is a bit more under the radar but also very good…it’s in the back of a bar called the Buzzmill. But for SXSW + BBQ: La BBQ is the jam.”

Pernille Teisbaek has truly covetable style. Every time I run into her, I want to copy her look and today was no different. Pernille’s the master of Nordic cool–effortless and ahead of the curve. She’s ticked all the biggest trend boxes with today’s outfit, but manages to make each theme feel fresh and inspiring.

I can’t resist an all-denim outfit. Then again, Chloe’s look is far from the traditional Canadian Tuxedo! Raw-edge culottes are cutting-edge trendy, while the denim button-up is a perennial classic. A draped shawl adds some color and volume.

As much as I love the moto jacket, it’s nice to see another leather style represented every once in awhile. The sleek, sharp lines of this jacket are appealing and work well with the more relaxed separates of Rose’s outfit. All-white looks are clean and perfect for the modern minimalist. Platform oxfords and a designer bag add some premium flair.

Jane’s sleek wrap topper is sharp and oh so chic. Belts are a must this season, and I love how this matching fabric belt creates definition without cutting the line of the silhouette. Minimalist accessories feel modern and feminine.

Linda Tol is really, really good at turning tailored menswear on its head. Her slim, sleek blazer is modern and minimalist, while her wide culottes create an interesting sense of balance. The turtleneck has clearly been one of the top cuts of the season, and you can’t go wrong with a classic cashmere style. A pair of adidas and a bright bag add some sporty elements.

I will be copying Zina’s casual-chic military style as soon as possible. I love long, loose layers, especially in white. A relaxed army-inspired jacket adds some trendy toughness to her springtime layers. The lace-up stiletto has been très popular this season, so Zina is right on trend. A lovely Céline bag adds some premium punch to the look.
