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!

If The Suit Fits

A Spring Suit With Some Personality

I have a pretty adventurous spirit so it only makes sense that my personal style would follow “suit”. When it comes to tailored menswear, I can appreciate tradition and well-made garments but I’m always looking for that special something to match my vibrant personality. I recently picked out this suit from Ted Baker to wear to a wedding and I couldn’t be happier with my choice. Ted Baker is known for their quirkier twist on menswear and it’s this special quality that I’ve alway admired in the brand, one that makes it a perfect match for my eclectic style. Every detail from the red threading on the lapel hole, built in polka dot pocket square, and the unexpected mix of colors in the fabric were exactly what I needed for a pop of personality in my suit. Life inside the box can be pretty boring so next time you’re looking for a special occasion suit consider trying something a little more daring!

Is That A Banana In Your Pocket?

I Mean It Coud Be…  |  Why Cargo Pants Are Still Kewl

There was a time when cargo pants were reserved strictly for the military and then in the 90’s Old Navy happened and everyone had a pair of them baggy pants with those big ass pockets protruding from the side of your thighs. Although they’ve had their fair share of fashion shame and a reputation for not being the most flattering pair of pants, I happen to love the look and here’s why. First of all they’re actually useful. You may not be filing your cargo pockets with extra bullets like a solider (if you are, well, we just won’t touch that subject for right now), but you can now ditch the murse and put your gum, keys, or hey even a banana in your pockets. Second, they can be flattering as long as you buy the right kind. Slim down the legs and pockets, and your cargos will look just as clean as a pair of plain chinos except these will have more flair. I chose a bit of a baggier style for my cargos, but because i rolled them tight at the bottom, they still have that slim look. And lastly, they’re so versatile. Wear them casually with a tee or dress them up with a blazer. You can style them as you would your favorite pair of chinos if you’re looking to mix things up in your personal style.

And not to be neglected, I made sure my top had some pockets as well. But not just one, like a lot, in this super cute utilitarian-ish bomber I recently got. Links below for some shopping if you’re so inclined. Happy Friday!

Bi-Polar Vortex
The Ups & Downs Of Last Month’s Outfits
Blogger confession: this past weekend was pretty sh*tastic from the nonstop rain and therefore nonstop boozing, so rather than giving you one new outfit today (rain is a personal style blogger’s worst enemy), you’re getting 16 old outfits. Besides, this outfit roundup allows us to all look back and reflect on how all over the place the weather has been. From a sleeveless leather look to all bundled up in wool and a beanie, to a full-on suit and tie I’m covering the whole spectrum in terms of clothing styles and weather appropriate attire. This March was also the first time ever in my life I think I’ve worn a bucket hat and a white coat. Call it March Madness but I’m pretty pleased with the outcome of experimenting with different looks and learning more about what I like when it comes to honing my own personal style. Have a favorite look? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to know what you guys like best!

Miranda Priestly Eat Your Heart Out

Florals, For Spring? Groundreaking? No. Stylish? YASSSS!

Spring florals will forever be a trend and I will always be here for it. I recently picked up this sweater and I’m in loveee with this tropical floral print. It’s the perfect nod to summer but because it’s a sweater it makes a great transitional piece as the weather starts changing.  From bombers, sweaters, tees, and button downs, you’ll be seeing floral prints popping up all over. I’ve included some of my favorites in the carousel below so check them out for some spring shopping inspiration.
