BURNT

July 6, 2017

Orange, dark coral, pumpkin or whatever you wanna call it, I’m into it. This rustic color reminds me of Fall and I’m 99.9% sure that why its calling my name. I’m SO over the Summer in New York, (I know it just started) that if I can find any color wave which remotely reminds me of Fall I’m game! Summer, yeah…she’s just not my season. It starts off cute with warm yet breezy days and by night it’s chilly enough to throw a light jacket over your shoulders. Then it develops into a humid mess. If you’re out and about in the city, forget about it. Like today for instance, I walked 10 blocks and I swear by the 8th block people probably thought I finished running a marathon. You get hot, sweaty and well, burnt. Anyways, I digress.

HOW JUNIOR HIGH OF ME

Just when I thought my style had completely evolved, at times I find myself resorting back to old ways of dressing…but better. Throwing it back to junior high days when my everyday outfits consisted of polos paired with shorts aka very southern and very preppy. I can’t help myself! The Southernness just runs through my blood. This time around the two are paired quite differently by paying attention to detail overtime and not being afraid to mix textures and patterns. Also, the younger me most likely would have worn a dressier shoe. Wiser me, a sneaker. Much cooler.

CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’ | TOMS SPRING

May 2, 2017

Throwback to February in California when the weather felt like Summer. It was my first time in California, but definitely not my last. I was there a couple months back shooting some sick new spring/summer 17′ styles for TOMS in Venice Beach. If you think TOMS only consists of those comfy classic slip ons, think again! They have completely developed as a brand – now carrying accessories, apparel and expanding their line of footwear. One of my favorties being the Lenox sneaker. I can’t get over the woven detail on the side, adding a little extra flair to the suede. You know it’s love when you own two different colors of the same sneaker. I mean hey, a boy needs options!!!

WHAT MOVES YOU | BANANA REPUBLIC

April 18, 2017

Spring has sprung here in New York which means I’m slowly transitioning out of my darker colors. Can you tell I l may be drawn towards a more neutral palette? Banana Republic has some great classic pieces this season that will make your Spring a little more comfortable and fun. I love the style of this polo with the buttons completely down the middle, so decided to keep it open like a cardigan. With it just at the beginning of warmer weather, adding this silk/cotton blend cardigan was the best touch of layering.
