You Mad At My Weave?

Why You Should Be Wearing Madras This Spring

The thing about New York City in the spring/summer is that it get’s really brutally hot and it’s almost impossible to find clothes that are breathable and still look good. Solution? Madras fabric makes the perfect alternative to your standard cotton tee in this weather because it has a very light weave so the fabric is super airy and breathable. You’ll typically see it in a textured plaid pattern, so think of it as your “spring/summer flannel” and wear it with literally all the things. Patchwork madras, like the shirt I’m wearing in this outfit, is also a pretty common design and since I’ve lately become obsessed with all things patchwork, it goes without saying that I’m all for it. So what do you think? Will you be wearing madras cloth to keep cool this season?

You Should Totally Be Wearing White Pants

Just Don’t Order Any Red Wine

This Thursday GQ + Glamour + Express are hosting a special #Back2Business happy hour to celebrate the opening of the newest Express store in Times Square New York and I had the special opportunity to get decked out in my cocktail attire best from their latest collection. Naturally, I decided to keep things fresh with some crisp new white trousers, a trend I’ve been eager to wear since last month’s crazy non-spring-like weather.

Nothing quite says spring has arrived than donning a new pair of white pants and since the occasion happens to involve one of my favorite past times, boozing, I did my best to create a warm weather cocktail party look. I paired my white trousers with a light pinstripe cotton blazer and a neutral color-blocked shirt for a sophisticated but fun monochromatic look, and chose my new “sprinkle” wingtip shoes to add a pop of color to the outfit.

If you happen to be in the NYC area tomorrow, feel free to stop by the public event and say hello!
