Northern Lights






It’s a new year and a confusingly frigid March in New York City. But this look I uncovered from the end of summer is a cozy reminder of what’s to come.

I came across those neon shorts while shopping a few summers ago. And for obvious reasons, they have become one of my most standout purchases ever.

I remember the day of this shoot perfectly. It was ideal for a light T-shirt, shorts and my favorite hat. I’m all about comfort during the blistering heat of summer, and this look was practical take on summer sharp. No tie or blazer required.

Spring has lowkey sprung here in New York City, so I felt it only appropriate to attempt to breathe a little life back in my blog. And what better way to welcome Treyematic’s New Year — be it a few months overdue — with a fresh batch of Treye’s Picks.

While I braved the bitter cold and sporadic snow showers that marked March in NYC, I had Jazmine Sullivan‘s new album, Reality Show, to keep my mind off what lurked in the murky depths of the sidewalk slush puddles. But Jazmine’s return to music wasn’t the only my only obsession I had during the month. From the prototype Tracee Ellis Ross to the life-altering game Threes!, here are all the things that sparked my inspiration during the past month.

I’m listening to Jazmine Sullivan’s exceptional comeback album Reality Show. I’m covering my head with the Brixton Messer fedora. I’m wanting the sporty Cole Haan ZeroGrand oxfords. I’m needing Orchill’s AV1 wallet Time Teller Watch. I’m passing my time with the super addictive game Threes!. And my favorite March cover girls are the iconic Tracee Ellis Ross for Essence and the always gorgeous Rihanna for Harper’s Bazzar.
