in one. Decked out with pockets on the arms and side body, the Villa gives a nice touch to urban office wear in heathered stone (gray), navy or obsidian for easy and fashionable pairing in any situation or environment.

I love water with ice, and it’s such a great bottle that keeps my water super-cold from the moment I fill it in the morning to having it by my bedside with ice still in it. It’s an item I can’t do without.” PCNA / PPAI 113079, S15 / pcna.com Ajami wants to try this athleisure set. “I would love to try out Next Level’s Laguna Sueded Sweatshirt and Sweatpants. Working from home, I mainly go for comfort, but with elevated and tasteful style, so I love my athleisure pants and sweater sets. I love the earth and neutral tones that Next Level offers in this style, so I can see myself going for the desert pink and rocking it out and about!” Next Level Apparel / PPAI 272027, S3 nextlevelapparel.com Ajami would suggest a cooler perfect for any festivity. “I would recommend the Igloo Seadrift Switch Backpack Cooler. Available in three gorgeous colorways, the ability for it to be used as a backpack or tote makes it such a versatile gift that can be used in any season or climate. This is a great recognition or holiday gift – I would even pair it with a charcuterie board and cheese and knife set to make an unforgettable outdoor outing gift package.” Gemline / PPAI 113948, S11 / gemline.com Valdez is a writer for PPAI.
