over the past few months, i’ve given you glimpses into my home through a series we refer to as a day in the life. (anyone else a Beatles fan like me?) today, we’re continuing that series with a tour of my YouTube studio. most of you probably know that we run a YouTube channel as part of style at a certain age. junior style and i shoot videos twice a week, so if you haven’t already, make sure to check it out. but for now, sit back and enjoy a behind the scene look at where we spend a lot of our time these days.
outfit of the day
today’s OOTD is a style formula i reach for regularly during both summer and winter: it’s black and khaki. almost amazingly, there are so many different ways to wear this combo. long sleeved shirt and shorts; short sleeved shirt and pants—you name it. we’re featuring a pair of straight pant chinos from J.Crew—a classic preppy look for sure. i’ve paired the pants with a black sleeveless turtleneck from Nordstrom. i’ve got to say, though, that my favorite part of my outfit today is my sandals. how fun are these ankle-strap sandals? leather with a hint of snakeskin—one of my favorite pieces from this summer.
a tour of my YouTube studio
a few months ago, we gave you a tour of my refinished basement. we’re extending that tour today and showing you where exactly we shoot our YouTube videos, which of course happens to be in that very basement. over the past year, we’ve slowly redesigned the space, and i’ve got to say, i’m liking where we ended up.
we’ve carved out a space that works perfectly for meetings but can be easily transformed into a studio where we can shoot videos. these swivel chairs are a favorite—deep and comfy. they create a sort of “coffee house vibe”, and believe you me, we drink a lot of coffee around here. i picked up a Nespresso machine last fall, and it’s honestly pretty revolutionary just in terms of its ease and usability. this one in particular allows you to make both espresso and coffee, and i highly recommend it.
a day in the life
i hope you enjoyed the virtual tour of my YouTube studio. in case you’re new to the blog or missed some of our entries into a day in the life series, make sure to check all of them out below.
