Regardless of what time of the year or season it is, I can always count on a layering various pieces together. I know, I know what your going to say. It’s spring and I live in Dallas, Texas and it’s hot so why are you layering your clothes?! But what else do you do when this stripe number comes in from Banana Republic?

Stripes have definitely become a staple for me, I also consider a stripe piece as a neutral in my closet. It’s a neutral that you can wear through the Spring and Summer and even through Fall and Winter. I always say do you have your basics covered? Black, white, navy, and now a stripe! These are all the basics you need in your closet-It could be anything from a tee, hoodie, pant, and even a light sweater. Whether it’s vertical stripes or horizontal stripes it’s a winner in my book. Think of it as a add on rather than the main focus of your outfit. And thanks to Banana Republic for making this stripe piece one of my favorites this spring!

New season, new wardrobe? Am I right? Season after season it’s important to always add statement pieces and mix it in with your basics. So we have all our outfits completed including a brand new wardrobe. But what’s also important is smelling the part!Making sure that the fragrance we spray is like the icing on the cake before walking out the door. As spring is in full force, it’s always great to change up your signature scent so you can smell fresh. So why not give Polo Red Extreme a go when changing up your scent for the current season?! It’s one of my new favorite colognes with a scent that’s fresh and unforgettable. A scent that you can smell from a distance and know that it’s going to get even better as you get closer. Polo Red Extreme is an updated masculine scent for the everyday man. A cologne for every event and every occasion. To the office and back, and even going to dinner with your significant other.

I’ve been wearing Polo Red Extreme for the past couple of weeks, and it makes me feel more confident with an edge. Especially because it lasts all day! With such a long lasting scent, I don’t have to worry anymore about refreshing my cologne when I’m heading back to the indoors from the outdoors in these Texas spring temperatures. I can tell that this fragrance will be such a great scent for my everyday wear. All the way from starting my early mornings to ending my nights. Polo Red Extreme is all about the fresh scent and making you feel like a million bucks when you walk out your door!

It’s pretty obvious by now that my favorite seasons are Winter and Fall. And my favorite time of the year is still going strong. Now that the holidays are over and it’s a new year, there are so many outerwear trends that are taking over the industry!
Side note: Can you believe that it’s 2017 already?! I’ve been layering up with all sorts of outerwear pieces and even bomber jackets. Especially when this bomber came in from H&M, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! This piece will definitely be worn over and over again all season long.

It’s been a minute since I got back to my roots and back in a suit. If you couldn’t tell by now, my choice of clothing is usually a suit. It gets me so excited to put on a suit and all the pieces that go with it. It’s something I look forward to wearing from work, to weddings to parties, and even galas. It’s definitely a process to get into one and remain comfortable in one, but I sure do appreciate a nice tailored suit! From picking out the tie, to matching the pocket square, and of course matching the endless sock choices, I just can’t get enough! And don’t worry, you’ll see this combo from Bows N Ties all fall long!

If I could wear a suit every day, I definitely would. All day, everyday.

Hello? It’s me…

Fall can you hear me? I think you finally have. Let’s try to keep it this way, maybe just for a few more weeks? Summer may be long gone and fall is here, according to the calendar. But these Texas days don’t really like to listen! So what does one wear while we wait for those cooler temperatures to come around? Perry Ellis always comes to the rescue! I’ve always been a fan of a shirt with buttons all the way down and I may even want to wear this color for the rest of the season and maybe even in the winter. So thank you Perry Ellis, for getting me all excited and ready for my favorite season!

Lately, I’ve been wearing so much white, SO MUCH WHITE! From running errands, to going to dinner, and even to the gym. The white craze is still going strong and I definitely don’t want to see Labor day weekend arrive anytime soon, and take it away from me because that just means this relationship with white will have to come to an end. And I don’t want to let it go just yet! So I’m holding on for a few more days…white was the perfect color for me this summer and I can’t wait for next summer.

I wanna say about 7 months ago I was introduced to a handful of blues, shades of blue that is. As I got more familiar with these choices, and continued to add different shades of blue in my outfits. This is an updated version of a blazer-6and not your dads traditional navy blazer but a new approach to what you may see in a window or down a runway. So bacially, what I’m trying to say is that navy is something I can’t stop wearing, buying, and dreaming about! It’s just the perfect combo with everything I’ve been wearing. Even when it’s over 100 degrees during the day or at night. Navy is here to stay and I can’t to show you off.

What’s your favorite navy piece?
