Who’s Hue

I’m never afraid to mix colors even when the weather isn’t on my side.  Don’t let the elements rain on your parade. Even though this isn’t a super bold look, it has enough color to stay true to my personal style. I always think it’s uplifting to add color to your outfit on those dreary days. What are your favorite colors? What do you think of today’s style post 

I had the privilege to style a few pieces from PeterFieldCustom out of Chicago. The tie I’m wearing is called “The Watlington” and it’s pretty dope and well constructed. I loved the design and colors and thought it would go great with this outfit. Also the ties they design are super customizable , so they will fit your preference.  Stay tuned they’re working on some new products for the spring.

Black&White

I love wearing Black and White. The two colors are my favorite to wear in spring. I also love sneakers, I know I don’t style them as much on here, but when I find cool looking ones I gotta have them. Wearing black and white and sneakers are big trends this spring and I wanted to put together a outfit with both.  What do you think of today’s look? How do you plan on wearing black and white this spring? What sneakers are you saving to get?

A Collected Review:


Ellington Cap Toe Saddle by Johnston&Murphy 

The Ellington Cap Toe Saddle  is the perfect shoe for the spring/ summer. After breaking them in for a few weeks,  I’m happy to have them in my collection. 

Comfort-The shoe features a leather lining with a sheepskin/chambray insole. This shoe really allows your feet to stay dry and breathe, especially if you like to ditch the socks on those hot summer days.

Durability- The shoe will last you a long time, but it  depends on how you take care them. I really recommend wearing these when the weather is just right. Avoid rain and snow. Fall, spring and summer are 

Style- What I truly loved about this shoe is the design and look. In my opinion, it’s a very beautiful shoe and you’re destined to turn heads and receive compliments, when you’re out and about.

Final Words- The Ellington Cap Toe Saddle is a great shoe for the spring and summer. It’s truly a great shoe that looks and feels good.  I recommend you visit Johnston & Murphy and check them out. They don’t just offer amazing looking  shoes, but apparel and accessories for men and women as well.

Neutral Zone 


With the spring season approaching, we all get the urge to throw on some floral prints or bright colors to show our appreciation of the beautiful weather it brings.  I love wearing vibrant colors and prints and also see how others pull them off in their own unique style.  But, we can’t forget about earthy neutral tones. Your browns, blues and greens are neutral colors that will go with any bright color you pair with them.

Double Denim

I just can’t leave laying alone. This look was inspired by me just experimenting with light layering. I bought that denim jacket two years ago, and I cut the sleeves of so it could be a vest, but then I realized without the sleeves it made it easier to layer with. So now it  has became my favorite piece to wear when I want to add a bit of pop to my outfit. As far as the jeans go,  I’m still finding the perfect pair. But in this post I’m testing out a new brand called DSTLD Jeans, based out of Los Angeles. They contacted me a few weeks ago and sent me some free jeans. Check them out here. Let me know what you think of today’s look.

Weather So Soft

Spring officially starts in six days and I couldn’t be more excited. The best thing about spring is the weather is balanced. It’s not too hot or too cold , meaning you can still layer like its winter and wear less like it’s summer. I was able to work with Giorgio Brutini and style a pair of their shoes for the spring. I picked this particular shoe because of the look and color. It’s a shoe that could be dressed up or down and at the same time go with anything.  Be sure to visit Giorgio Brutini and check out their amazing collection of shoes

Mark McNairy 

Mark McNairy is one of the most brilliant and innovative fashion designers of all time, in my opinion a true icon. He designs almost everything,  but it’s the shoes he puts together that really made me a fan of his. I love the uniqueness of everything he designs.  it’s as if they all have their own style and personality. He stays true to himself and produces clothes that are daring. From army to leopard print, he has experimented with them all. He has also collaborated with a lot of people and brands, from Pharrell Williams to Union.

Sunny Side Up
I was contacted by Trask a few weeks ago to style a pair of their spring-ready Boots . I really love the craftsmanship and care that went into creating these boots. They’re also super comfortable and fit true to size. The perfect chukka boot to add to your spring wardrobe.  Expect a full review of them in the coming weeks. 
This look was inspired by my love for spring. The rain, the bright colors and cool breeze that honestly anyone would take over dealing with this crazy snow. I styled the chukkas  around a color palette that complimented them as well as let them stand out. . How do you think I style the boots ? What do you look forward to wearing when spring approaches ?

Kiss From A Rose 

I was excited to work with Lisa Shaffer, creator and designer of Zelma Rose .Not only does she make beautifully handcrafted bow ties,  but she also makes jewelry, lockets, and pocket squares. I picked out two bow ties from her to style for my blog. Everyone knows I’m a big fan of polka dot print, so styling this one was a no-brainer.  I approached this bow tie thinking of spring and how colorful it can be.  Be sure to check out her shop and follow her.  What do you guys think of the post?

Spring Training

I found this bright orange jacket while shopping, and thought it would be perfect to style and start off my spring outfit posts. How do you guys think I styled the jacket ? Are you guys excited for spring ?
