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!

I’ve definitely been on a high shoe kick lately, I could dedicate a whole blog to shoes and what I love about each pair. So for now, I’ll tell you this relationship I’m having with my current favorite style- mules. They are all over the runways, your grandparents had them when they were kids and you have probably even seen them in your girlfriends closet.
I can tell you that I haven’t taken mine off since I’ve gotten them. And I also plan on wearing them all summer long!
Happy Friday! Well we made it through another week, can you believe it?!
As the weekend rolls in and we plan for all the exciting festivities, I cant be more stoked about what I’ll be wearing this weekend. I picked up this cable top coat and paired it with this patterned shirt. I am loving sneakers right now, and I love pairing them with different outfits! Especially for all your weekend festivities. And your feet will definitely not hurt after the entire weekend. I hope y’all have a great weekend! Be sure to tag along on my Instagram and Snapchat for all my weekend adventures.
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. By now you probably know that Fall and Winter are my favorite seasons. I could do Fall and Winter back to back or maybe even all year long- depending on the temperatures of course! You can never have too many sweaters during these cold holiday months. So when this sweater came in the mail from Banana Republic, it was like Christmas morning came a month early!
I could easily wear this Banana Republic sweater in every color all season long! Be sure to head to BananaRepublic.com for more Fall/Winter pieces!
What’s your favorite kind of sweater?
*Thank you Banana Republic for always adding to my fall/winter wardrobe!
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.
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.
It’s no surprise for me to say that a suit or blazer is what I practically live and breath in. Layering has been a great way to build my wardrobe or add key staple pieces.
Summer is finally here and it is blazing hot! I keep getting asked if it’s okay to wear a tie or if it’s okay to wear a blazer/suit. Especially during the crazy Texas heat that we have. I always say YES. Even when the weather is hot, it’s always okay to wear a suit or blazer (for fashion purposes). I’ve been mixing suit separates and blazers with jeans and light fabric trousers. Play with it, mix and match it and see how many different ways you can wear something you’ve owned in you’re closet for a long time! You can thank me later.
If I asked you to pick out 3 essential pieces from your wardrobe, what would you pick? Or would you be able to minimize them down to 3? Well, if you can’t then don’t worry because I’m here to tell you that its all right in front of yours eyes! Ever feel like you just can’t find that piece in your closet or you find yourself texting your friend to ask them what they are wearing?!
Believe it or not, this is by far the most asked question. What are the 3 key pieces that one needs in their closet? So here’s a breakdown of your 3 essential pieces:
1.) Black blazer (make sure it’s fitted or invest in a good tailor.)
2.) White shirt, clean and fresh ( Add a simple pattern if you want to be more risky.)
3.) Dark jeans ( you should always have more dark jeans thanlight jeans in your closet.)
Always stick with these essentials and go back to your basics.
My closet lately has been expanding into more blazers. Shocker right?! More suits, separates, and blazers. As we go into Summer, I’m leaning towards more of grey and khaki colors. Even my brown and cognac color shoes are making an appearance! I keep pairing them with grey and khaki separates. Also, I’m loving a good fit for denim and letting it reflect with these neutral shades. If you ask me, it’s just fits together like a perfect pair.
It’s been a long time since I’ve dreamt of this day. Not only have previous fashion weeks been a dream come true, but a whole week dedicated to men’s fashion week is definitely the icing on the cake! I have officially attended the first ever New York Fashion Week Men’s.
Day one was the opening of New York Men’s fashion week. The first day- New York Men’s Day kicked off with new and upcoming designers. Some of the designers included were Carlos Campos to Crossed Fingers and so much more. Scroll down below to see my favorite pieces. What were your favorites?
