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!
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 been such a great few days in New York for Men’s Fashion Week. The past couple of days have been jam packed with shows, presentations, meetings, and playing catch up with all my favorite bloggers and friends in this crazy industry. I was super stoked about this day in particular- I got the chance to get up close and personal with all the backstage looks for the Todd Snyder Fall/ Winter 2017 fashion show. One of my favorite shows I look forward to every season!
My favorite part was getting to see the Bumble and Bumble team in action while getting all the models ready! Side note- I’m obsessing over all the new products by Bumble and Bumble! This was definitely a moment I will never forget and it gets me so excited for more opportunities like this! Thanks again Bumble and Bumble and Todd Snyder for having me! Be sure to follow along for more behind the scenes from New York FashionWeek Men’s.
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. This might be a trend that I keep in my wardrobe for the many Fall and Winter seasons to come, thanks to H&M!
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.
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.
Lately, I’ve been all about casual dress downs and comfort. Comfort is slowly beginning to take over my wardrobe and style choices. I’m more excited these days to start getting dressed from the bottom up than top to bottom. Starting with shoes that is! Does it get any better than a wing tip and thick comfort sole? I have been wearing these a lot and pairing them with suits, trousers, jeans and even shorts. I also will be throwing these babies into my fall wardrobe!
Last night music celebrated its biggest night of the year. The 57th annual Grammy Awards which were held at the Staples Center in Los Angles, California. Not only did we celebrate music but we also celebrated fashion. The stars strutted down the two mile red carpet with glitz and glam. Below I’ve listed my best dressed men and women of the 57th Grammy Awards. Who were your hits and misses?
