A Big Pop Of Yellow








I guess you could say I was feeling springy but I’m not one to normally dress for the weather. It could be a beautiful spring day and you’d find me in all black or it could be overcast and I’d be covered in color. I’ve learned to wear what I want and when I feel like it and I think that's the best way to approach outfit making. This outfit is pretty similar to what most guys wear. A pair of jeans and a sweater. I once thought looks like these were way to simple to make an appearance on my blog but I’ve reconsidered and think its important to show how basics pieces can still look cool. Like with most outfits it all comes down to the accessories. An awesome bag will certainly help stylize the look and the same goes for a kick ass pair of shades. It’s not always about trying hard to separate yourself from the crowd. Sometimes fitting in while being stylish is even better. If you’re here because of the yellow sweater then I've got you covered. Bold and bright colors look great in the spring so I’ve chosen a few of my favorite pieces below. Thanks for stopping by!

Who Said Grey Was Boring?







[Suit] Zara [Turtleneck] John Smedley [Sneakers] Steve Madden [Glasses] Glasses Shop

You don’t see me in a full suit that often. It’s not that I dislike them or find them ugly but I do feel for the most part that they lack style and creativity. If you work a 9-5 office job then you’ll most likely be wearing a solid grey or navy business suit 5 days of the week. It’s basically a uniform and apart from having your suit tailored to perfection there are very few other things that can be done to show your true style. Because of this a grey suit is sometimes over looked as a stylish option. That is of course unless it’s cut from a beautiful and unique cloth. This bold glen plaid suit that I’m wearing doesn’t need to be heavily accessorized nor does it need the addition of a colorful shirt and tie. This is the kind of suit that makes heads turn and trust me I know because I received countless compliments the day I wore it. I think this  proves that grey isn’t as boring as many say it is. Thanks as always for reading!

The Versatile Check Blazer






[Jeans] Nudie Jeans [Blazer] Zara [Shirt] Tailor4Less [Tie] Altea Milano

This check blazer just jumped into my list of favorite pieces. The fit is pretty spot on and I love how versatile it is. Here I’m wearing it with a pair of dark wash denim and a more dressy banker shirt and tie. Keeping to my somewhat simple style I decided to not mix patterns and let the blazer be the focal point. If you’re looking for a more night time appropriate look then keep on the same blazer and jeans and wear a black button up or polo shirt. For a weekend look out with friends try a solid colored turtleneck, a pair of white sneakers and your favorite baseball cap. It’s hard to call any blazer versatile unless it’s your go to navy piece but I do believe that a checked blazer can make countless outfits. You’ll just have to be a bit more careful and make sure to not overwear it because a piece this beautiful is easy to remember. Thanks for reading!

Suited Up Shearling Coat






[Coat] Zara [Shoes] Doucals [Tie] Profuomo [Sunglasses] Glasses Shop

It’s officially spring but with the occasional cold day I still haven’t been able to put away my winter coats for the season. Around this time of the year I always get very bored of my winter wardrobe and become anxious to pull out spring pieces. I’ve had to experiment more and more with layering to continue to make my cold weather outfits unique. Here I’m wearing my absolute favorite coat. Normally I would pair it with dark denim and a turtleneck. It’s simple and lets the coat really stand out, but there are only so many times I can wear that combo without hating it. This time I decided to try to dress it up a bit. A double breasted blazer was the only option and actually looks pretty good contrasted against this more casual coat. What do you guys think of what will definitely be my last winter look for now?
