RASK NYC || The Summer Coat You Need {& on MAAAAJOR SALE!}

San Francisco summers are weird.

It may be California, & the sun may be shining over the Golden Gate Bridge, but it’s always about 10 degrees too cold for summer. Being from Texas, this was a MAJOR culture shock. In fact, when I moved to SF from Dallas in 2013, I got on the plane in 110 degree weather and got off it at 65 degrees.

Anyways, my point in my weather report is that a jacket is a MUST in the summer in San Francisco. Sure, sometimes it gets hot enough where it’s not needed but that is a rarity.

Now, winter jackets are a little too heavy. The material is a bit more dense & can be too warm. Like I’m not looking for a puffer. For summer coats, it needs to be something that you can layer or de-layer. Something to throw on that can stand up to the cool summer breeze but something chic af, you know?

Anyways, this jacket by RASK NYC is my ultimate summer jacket & the brand you need to know NOW.

Why do you need to know RASK literally right now?

Well, for starters, it’s a favourite of the Hadid sisters {check them out in RASK here, here, here, here & here}, Hailey Baldwin {see here}, & Victoria’s Secret Angel Romee {here} but they are having an INSANE SALE. Basically, you can dress like Gigi & Bella for a quarter of the price for their exact items. Use the code SUMMER18 for 70% {!!!!!!!!!} off your order.

RASK NYC is a New York based brand founded by sisters Jannika & Allison Rask. It’s gender neutral which I love & very modern. Another thing that’s totally rad is that Jannika & Allison are self taught designers and their style is seriously next level. Raised by both their Colombian mother & Swedish father, you get the best of both worlds in their line. Think the perfect balance between composed and independent yet firey and passionate at the same time. Their bold aesthetic is next level with a keen attention to detail that you can tell when you first see it. Finally, everything they make is in small quantities by the best manufacturers in New York & sourced from the quality mills around the world. In fact, when I first heard of Rask, I went through and literally wanted everything here.

Also, I should mention the co-founder, Jannika, is one of my oldest friends from Houston and literally one of the raddest chicks I know. Check her out on instagram – her style & travels are seriously insane. You will love her.

Anyways back to the RASK jacket.

Here I am wearing the EUCLID JACKET from the capsule collection with my Fila Disruptors, a basic tee, my fav jeans, & chain belt.

A really dope detail about the Euclid jacket is that it has FOUR huge flat pockets: 2 hidden on the inside & 2 on the outside. You legit do not need a purse with this and the pockets can hold almost anything. It even holds my flask journal comfortably! Off topic, but I started journaling a few weeks ago and it has been a GAME CHANGER for me and my work days. I’ll get a post on this soon but it literally has changed my life.

One thing I really love about this jacket {& their others!}, is that they pay homage to Houston, where Jannika & I both grew up. Each jacket in their capsule collection: Apollo, Calipso, Terra, & Euclid are named after the NASA satellites. They all have an oversized fit & made from 100% American denim. The quality is just INSANE. As you hold it in your hands, you know it’s a special piece of clothing

Also, the capsule collection is already discounted on the site so no code is needed – but anything else you may stock up on, use the code SUMMER18 for one hell of a discount. I picked up the slit jeans {these are legit my new favourite jeans}, striped pants, & matching striped robe which you will see here on the blog verrrrry soon. 😉

Anyways, I HAD to share since it really is one of the most rad brands out there and the sale is insane.  Most of the pieces were almost $1000 & are now in the $200-$400 range. Not to mention, I feel totally cool twinning with Bella. Also, once the pieces are gone they are gone forever so don’t miss out.

Happy shopping & soooo sorry in advance to your wallets. Also, if you get this jacket, get prepared to be stopped every second to ask just WHERE is it from. Seriously, I get complements on this on the daily… even if I just throw it over sweats when I run errands.

Here are some other things I am going to pick up from RASK w/ my sexy lil SUMMER18 discount: Chain coat {that sleeve detail is INSANE & this is perfect for Tokyo}; Apollo coat {it’s one of their best sellers & y’all know I am feeling that pastel blue}; & cuff tie pants {I just picked up some dope Ferragamo block heels from the 80s that these would be perfection with}.

& if you buy, LMK!! I want to see you rocking it – & it’s gender neutral so apologies in advance if your boyfriend tries to steal your rad new jacket.

xx Shannon

TLDR – the coolest celeb-loved brand, RASK NYC, is on MAJOR sale. 70% off! Use code: SUMMER18 to get your discount. Note: the Euclid, Apollo, Terra, & Calipso jacket are already discounted & excluded from sale. Once gone, they are gone forever so don’t miss this!

@ROTHWINES 2015 HERITAGE RED, SONOMA COUNTY, CALIFORNIA {$25ish} :: not only do we love this wine, but it’s one we’d give to guests {big fan of party favours for all guests over here} and they all loved it too! Super juicy & ripe with robust tannins! It’s a blend of 51% Syrah with some Petite Sirah, Zin, Cab, Merlot, Malbec, & Petite Verdot. Bold AF with leather, tobacco, juicy berries, & black pepper and those sexy tannins lend a nice velvety mouthfeel.

We’ve been enjoying it outside with the grill! We’ve had it with grilled steaks, burgers, & even grilled pizza! It would go awesome with some lamb or charcuterie too.
