Stylish Glasses For The Computer Addict



I wear eyeglasses not because I need to but because I feel that they add a certain amount of style and elegance to an outfit. That was at least until I discovered Felix Grays and their lenses that filter blue light. If you’re like me then you’re always starring at a computer or phone screen but had no idea the damage it's causing. Electronic screens emit a high energy light called blue light which has been linked to eye strain, macular cellular damage and even sleep cycle disruption. Felix Grays lenses filter blue light preventing damage and making us feel much safer throughout our day. I will admit that I was a bit unsure at first because tech related products aren’t exactly known for being fashionable but I was pleasantly surprised with Felix Grays 15 stylish options such as the Turning in a horn finish that I’m wearing here. They’ve now turned into my favorite pair of glasses and have the added bonus of preventing digital eye strain.

The All-Season Camo Shirt








[Shirt] Neill Katter [Jeans] Nudie Jeans [T-Shirt] Zara [Belt] Gucci [Sunglasses] Suit Supply 

I’ve worn this camo shirt a few times before, even once last fall paired with a blazer and tie. Camo is always a print that I find myself going back to because I just love the statement that it makes. Some might say it’s out of style which may be true because it really peaked as a trend in 2015 and has since slowly found itself being left out of new collections but with brands such as Valentino still pushing camo I don’t see it falling entirely out of style anytime soon. I don’t know where my inspiration came form for this outfit because it’s definitely not how I normally style myself. I thought with the oversized Gucci belt and white undershirt that it was unintentionally vintage but others said with the white sneakers and slim fit jeans that it is a spot on 2017 look. Most of my looks aren’t inspired by anyone or any specific idea so I guess we’ll just say that it’s me. I'd also love to know what you think about my hanging iPhone case. It's not very useful because most of the time my phone is just in my hand but I think it adds a bit of uniqueness to the outfit that I just love. Thanks for stopping by and have  great week.

Feeling Springy In Pink







[Shirt] Club Monaco [Blazer & Shoes] Zara [Jeans] The Kooples [Watch] Daniel Wellington

I live in a city and this blazer might be meant for lunch in the Maldives but that doesn’t mean I can’t wear it. Actually maybe I shouldn’t wear it especially not with white pants and floral sneakers but it's just too beautiful to leave hanging in the closet. I decided to wear a dark blue shirt with it to add contrast and help tone it down a bit for the city. I finished off with a few wrist accessories and a cool pair of blue tinted sunglasses that really helped bring the whole look together. I know some of you might think a double breasted blazer is a statement on its own and in this bold of a color it’s almost as if I’m screaming for attention but I think when styled simplistically, such in this look, that it’s not that powerful of a statement. I hope you guys like the look and I'd love to know what you think.

Take Time With Timex This Spring





Style isn’t nearly as complicated in the spring as it is in the fall and winter. In the winter we rely on multiple layers and the mixing of fabrics to add uniqueness to our outfits. In the spring we focus more on single pieces such a stylish blazer or light weight sweater that speaks for themselves. During these warmer months accessories become more and more important. I love my hats, sunglasses and wrist wear because they add style without adding bulk. Watches are of course a must. I almost never leave home without one because apart from their function, they also show that you are a man who cares about the details. 



The people over at Timex came out with some cool new watches that will easily work with anything in your existing wardrobe. The Fairfield Chronograph is a great option for people like me who don't want things too complicated wrapped around their wrist. The awesome thing about Timex is that they have an endless option of straps available. I know many people love the colorful nylon straps that can be color coordinated with their outfit or metals that match their belt buckle or jewelry. If you're interested have a look at some of my favorites below and remember to #TakeTime to make yourself as stylish as can be.

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?
