This week we wanted to follow along with one of our favorite in-office duos, Birch Thomas and Julian Thomas Mitchell, as they hustle through a typical DC day sporting two of our popular carryalls. These two kids are hip, insanely talented, and love a fresh iced coffee. Consider them living, breathing examples of the phrase, “on-the-go.” When you’re keeping up with a pair who never stops doing things, you’ve got to stay on your toes. Luckily, we’ve got the bandwidth to hustle and flow through the District with the Fit Kit and The Gibson at our side.

This spring, greenery is giving us life at SCOUT HQ and beyond! Our Chief Creative Officer and Co-founder, Deb, wanted to soften the hardened edges of our go-go-go metropolitan lives with some organic and romantic motifs for spring and summer alike. Bright and rejuvenating leafy greens are popping up on all the runways—and on our products too. We can’t get enough of these colorful and natural vibes after all that winter we’ve suffered through.

Our Chief Creative Officer, Deb Waterman Johns, and the SCOUT photography team recently traveled to the Florida panhandle for a little photoshoot (keep an eye out for some of the great shots), and we couldn’t be happier to report back on their travels. With all the recent talk of polar vortexes, winter weather warnings, and day after day of gray, everyone was definitely in need of some bright, fresh, and fun spring product and content, so it was only fitting that the team headed to one of the dreamiest destinations this side of the gulf where bare feet and sandy floors rule.

It’s safe to say that most of our current winter wardrobes can best be described as “ashen,” and the need for a splash of color is beginning to feel pretty necessary, if not a dire fashion emergency. Our meteorologists at HQ will have you know that despite these cold and cloudy weather conditions, there are Signs of Hope. It may be the third week of February, but at SCOUT, Spring/Summer 2019 is in full and vibrant swing thanks to our newest colorblocked friends.

With an atmosphere that reads cool, contemporary, bohemian, modern, southern, and traditional all at once, Austin, Texas couldn’t have been a more intriguing and exciting destination for our Spring/Summer 2019 catalog photoshoot. With an ever-expanding foodie culture, rich music scene, and affinity for murals, wall art, and creative spaces in general, there’s a definite feeling of freedom in the Austin city air (or, as our Chief Creative Officer, Deb Waterman Johns, calls it “the boho cowboy vibes”). Austin’s irresistible vibrancy and quirkiness are among several reasons this city felt spot-on for a SCOUT photoshoot.
