A January Spring

A new year is upon us and there's no better way to start a year than to freshen up your wardrobe. I've picked one new look to show you, with some fresh denim, a new simple tee and a print shirt to finish it off.

On top, a new shirt from Express. This bold number really makes your look pop. With it's spread collar, button front and shirttail hem, this shirt really works best when layering with a simple colored shirt underneath.

AllSaints Black Tee

This is a new pickup from me and it really just speaks for itself. A simple black tee with a great length and great shoulder cut. I can pair this with almost anything. Black jeans? Yes. Denim jacket? Yes. Sweats? Yes. Simple, sophisticated.

These jeans, new in from Express, are my favorite pair for the new year. They are super stretchy, super comfortable and extremely versatile. I love the edgy destruction at the bottom and the cropped style. You can do what I did and pair them with a pair of shoes only, or you can wear some bright stylish socks and low top shoes for an added dimension to your outfit. These jeans are super skinny, so if you grab a pair (which you should), get a size bigger!

Louis Leeman White Low Tops

A classic shoe. White. Leather. Smooth. I love everything about these. You can wear them with everything. I mean it. Everything. Black Jeans. Blue Jeans. Cargo. Slacks. Shorts. I love them. They are incredibly comfortable and incessantly stylish. A must have.

Have ean amazing day!

My New Favorite Sneakers - Adidas NMD

For awhile I've been looking for a new daily shoe that I could wear that is comfortable yet stylish and I've definitely found it.

The Adidas NMD.

Combining Primeknit and Boost cushioning, this shoe feels like you're walking on a cloud. It has the perfect mix of these new, fantastic materials and the high quality production that puts it all together. 

These sneakers are so good, so comfortable and so stylish that they sell out as soon as they are released in their various colorways. They look new, they look modern, they look distinctive. 

The first drop came before Christmas last year and it's already become a classic. The silhouette is timeless though futuristic and the continued release of new colors, patterns and materials keeps the look fresh but recognizable.

Furthermore, the difficulty of getting your hands on the sneakers make the shoe more enticing. It means something to have a pair. 

Adidas' Global Director of Entertainment and Influencer Marketing Jon Wexler has explained why these, and the other shoes from Adidas that use the boost technology, are so limited in their runs.

It takes X amount of time to sew those sneakers together, and we can only get so much of this Boost material from NASA
— Jon Wexler

NASA. NASA. NASA. I THINK I'VE SAID ENOUGH ALREADY.

I've finally found the perfect shoe.

My Style

Recently I have been inundated with questions about my style and my influences so I thought I would let you all know :)

T-Shirt

like my t-shirts to be relatively long for a reason i can only describe as personal preference. I feel it gives me the better opportunity to combine it with a sweater/shirt etc.

I recently found an affinity for band tour tees. I have picked up one from Paul McCartney, AC/DC and Guns N Roses. I love pairing them with my other favorite item, black jeans.

Jeans

I love black jeans like 98% of the population. I have some with rips and I have some without, but they go with everything. I can through any color t-shirt/any sweater on top of my jeans and they suit it perfectly. Recently I have bought a few pairs of blue jeans and I am trying my best to wear them. Like the black jeans, some are ripped and some aren't but i'll get there. One day.

Shoes

My go-to shoes are a few pairs of AllSaints boots I picked up last year and some Nike's that are in need of a refresh. Over the next few weeks I'll be getting some new sneakers, probably NMD's from Adidas and a pair of converse, a must have.
