It’s A Pa-chama Porty!

Because Why Bother Actually Getting Dressed?  

As evidenced by a few of my recent outfits, I’ve been completely obsessed with all things baggy, loose-fitting, and just generally oversized. And why shouldn’t I be when it basically feels like I’m wearing pajamas disguised as real clothes? It’s like I went to bed in this outfit and literally Beyonce’d aka #iwokeuplikedis (flawless). I recently picked up these bermuda-ish linen pantaloons and like actually, literally, they are f*cking everything for this summer heat. Breathable, non-sticky, and a total man repeller - they basically meet all requirements for being in my closet. The shirt is another new addition. The silky feel and blousy style are super forgiving for that next-day, post-drinking bloat and I meannn are you not just in love with the print?

Summer Stripes

And No, Not The Nautical Kind

I’ve always wanted a pinstripe suit but was afraid it would be considered too “business-y” so I’ve shied away from actually pulling the trigger on one. Luckily when Indochino came to NYC for a pop-up event this summer I got the chance to customize my own suit so I decided to go for it and do pinstripes. Rather than wearing it with a tie, I opted to dress it down to make it more summer appropriate. I paired it with a simple solid tee and some black slip-on sneakers for a more casual vibe that suits my more low key lifestyle. When worn like this, it hardly seems like a business suit and fits more in the realm of casual, cocktail attire which just goes to show you that thinking outside of the box allows your wardrobe more versatility. So what do you think of this summer suit look?

Thank God For Drawstring Pants

For Those Days When You Feel…Well, Not So Skinny  

They’ve got the comfort and stretchiness of sweatpants but the sophistication of dressy trousers - tell me again what’s not to love? The drawstring jogger pant is a gift from the fashun gawds and I’m saying hallelujah!

Thanks to this new, fabulous trend, you can look stylish and feel comfortable at the same time! Pair your drawstring pants with anything from a simple tee to a tucked in button-down and go from casual to classy in the time it takes you to tie a bow.
