It’s finally here y’all…. It’s finally here!! WINTER IN LA!! hahaha. Well, it’s finally starting to feel like winter in LA with cool winds and even rain. Of course, that gives Angelenos (and myself) any excuse to break out some winter layering. Now, I’ve been eyeing this “teddy bear coat” trend for a minute and… consider me on board! It’s such a good balance of warmth and comfort and yet stylishly cool and effortless. Continue Reading
Working from home can take a minute to get used to… luckily, I have gotten into a good morning routine that makes being a freelance menswear blogger that much easier. I am all about making moves that make life easier and free up mental space to create. Now, as you all know, I am a coffee drinker… better yet, a cold brew coffee drinker. So, when Cuisinart reached out to partner up with them on their GENIUS cold brew maker, it was a no-brainer… of course I was on board. All throughout the day, you will catch me sipping on a cold brew and nine out of ten I am walking around with a cup (as you have seen in several of my pictures!) Excited to share what my mornings are like while getting ready for the day. Continue Reading
Sooo, as you all know, I live by the idea of taking classic pieces and giving them a modern touch. That’s why I was super excited when I had the chance to pair up with a classic brand this is synonymous with preppy cool, Sperry…. They recently released their Gold Cup line, a huge selection of timeless classics with a modern touch, perfect for today’s man. Continue Reading
Hey guys!! I know I tend to go MIA on the site (sorry!!) but I am trying to bring it back with more daily content that is real time. As much as I enjoy curating outfits for more “editorial vibes”, I do miss the days where I would post what I was wearing that very same day…. well, can’t say I will do it daily but I will definitely aim to do it way more often. Since LA has still been pretty gloomy (and all around confused), layers have been my go-to weapon of choice to tackle the day in!
Being from LA, I am always inspired by the more casual approach to any outfit. Whether it be for a day at the office or a laid back day about town, the feeling of being “dressed to impress” always brings out a confidence and relaxed vibe. I love to have fun with clothing and always look for ways to mix up the classic statement pieces and give them a modern twist. Canali is a perfect example of my approach to style: with their clothing collection, they stay modern and fresh while keeping true to the classic roots from their Italian heritage. From there ready to wear pieces to their laid back casual cool, every piece is a standout.. here are just a few of my favorites. Continue Reading
Stepping out of my comfort doesn’t always mean trying something new or daring. I’ve been wanting to step up (or change up) my style game with a more minimal and refined approach yet with a taste of class and sophistication. Of course, I immediately gravitate towards French vibes. The French have a way of making the most minimal outfits look so rich and clean.
So, if you have followed me for quite some time, two facts should come as no surprise: I love a great print button down and I love palm trees. Well, recently, I checked out the Spring/Summer ASOS collection and immediately knew I had to get my hands on this amazing palm tree shirt. The pattern is bold enough to be a standout piece on its own and works easily for a casual fit or even a more suited vibe for running around to meetings during warmer days!
Ok, ok… I didn’t mean an actual band (although, I do enjoy great concerts). I am talking about my latest favorite style move, the camper shirt, your button down’s cooler younger cousin with style… seriously, I picked this one from Kenneth Cole and I am hooked. Gave it a more “office friendly” approach and loved the minimal classic vibes that came from it all with some simple moves….
You guys!! Fashion week came and went like a… well, New York minute. It was great to (finally!) be able to wear layers and bundle up for the cold weather!! And to say it was cold is an understatement… it was cold!! But I definitely enjoyed every minute of it… from staying cozy indoors at Hotel Indigo, Lower East Side to trekking the beautiful streets of NY, it was a trip for the books!… and, since its cooler in LA, i thought, why not do a recap of my stay!
