A January Spring

254C7B89-5C45-4228-9A84-E780F4B2C579.JPG

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.

Pineapple Short Sleeve Shirt

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.

7pm Vibes

IMG_3209.JPG

Hey everyone!

Back with another blog but this time it's a little different. I want to talk to you all about that 7pm feeling. You know when you're done with work but you aren't going home? You might head out with your friends to grab a few drinks, nosh on some food and party the night away. The options are endless. 

This blog will revolve around an outfit I wore on my most recent night out in LA. I'm going to run through it, from top to bottom.

ON TOP

Skinny Innovator Black Wool Blend Twill Tuxedo Jacket

I love everything about this tuxedo jacket. From the satin detailing to the high peak lapels, this jacket is as timeless as it is comfortable. Speaking of comfort, the fit is immaculate. It doesn't ride up to high, it doesn't crease in an odd place and the sleeve length is perfect (fyi I am wearing a 38R). Pick it up here if you want to give it a try. I can't recommend this Express piece enough. The reason I love it is that it allows you to combine and switch out your look. You can dress it with a shirt as I have done here or a basic white tee to even a thin sweater. It fits the 7pm vibe perfectly. Wherever you are headed to, it won't let you down.

AllSaints Print Shirt

I love a print shirt. It's undeniable. From the beach to the bar, a print shirt is never out of place. This shirt is black with little love heart ying yang symbols all over. I always wear it with a few buttons down with a necklace to give it a casual but sophisticated look.

Joe's Black Jeans

These are my go-to black jeans in my wardrobe. They are tight fit but they are super comfortable. They have a perfectly tapered ankle so they will not hang over your boots awkwardly as many jeans do. I have not tailored these at all, this is how they fit off the rack.

Aldo Black Suede Chelsea Boots

Anyone who follows me knows how much I love Chelsea boots. From black to grey to tan to orange, I always find a way to fit them into whatever look I am going for. Here they pair nicely with the tapered ankle of my jeans and add another black dimension to an outfit that already has a print shirt and jacket in the same color.

Hope you all enjoyed this blog :) I'll be back with more soon!

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.
