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’m so happy to be back in New York City for the Fall/Winter 2017 New York Fashion Week Men’s. It’s a full week of runways and presentations and tons of exciting events. New York definitely feels like a second home every time I visit. I also always forget how much colder the city is! So staying warm was key through the week. Be sure to tag along as we kick off New York Fashion Week 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.
I can’t believe it’s time for another season. New York Fashion Week Men’s is here again! I’m currently in New York for the next whole week for men’s fashion week. I’m so excited to see the new collections for Fall, and can’t wait to get my fashion game on! So bring on the shows, presentations, friends from both coasts, and of course lots of outfit changes. Be sure to follow along on my Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and Facebook for all the behind the scenes. New York, let’s do this!
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.
So what’s next you ask? Lately I’ve found that I keep gravitating towards anything gray. I mean anything grey…like 50 shades of grey? (Kidding!) I’ve found myself waking up running over to my closet and matching everything around this blazer in particular. It’s perfect for work, dinner with you’re significant other, church, and even happy hour. You can add this blazer or any staple grey piece in your wardrobe as a key piece for Spring and all through the Summer. I know I will also be paring it a lot with black next Fall and Winter.
There’s nothing more I love than the Fall and Winter seasons. Without a doubt, everyone is in a good mood-well for the most part. Just like when I discovered my new obsession with the brand Bows-N-Ties. I came across them a few months ago and couldn’t resist all the great selections on ties, bow ties, and pocket squares. Everything is under $100 dollars and the choices of color and patterns are endless. By now, y’all know my uniform by choice is a suit or switching it up with a great pair of jeans. And Bows-N-Ties just made it so much easier!
