This style post was centered around the duffle coat I got a month ago. I wanted to wear some colors that would really  compliment the coat. I thought the contrast of red, blue and gray would work great. Let me know your thoughts on today’s  post ?

Top 5 Winter Essentials:


#3. Boots

Everyone needs a good pair of boots to face the harsh and cold winter. On top of dealing with snow and below zero temperatures, you have to worry about the salt and wetness that could potentially tear down your footwear. You don’t have to comprise your style or look when it comes to looking for a pair of boots. There are a lot of brands that are making great looking boots that can withstand the winter elements. So lace up your boots and flex on mother nature.

Weathering The Storm

The weather in Indy has been crazy. One day it’s snowing the next day it’s raining, I guess that’s the perks of living in the midwest. Dealing with the crazy weather, I’m often challenged with what to wear. I feel like unless it’s the end of the world or you’re facing a tornado,  you should never let the weather comprise your style. There’s always ways around it. Whether it be having a nice coat/jacket, sweater or boots. I often tend to wear brighter clothes on dreary days just for the simple fact it may brighten up someone’s day, you never know. What do you like to wear in certain weather situations?

The Dark Knight 

This outfit was built around the navy blue sweater I found a weekend ago Originally I wanted to pair it with a brighter palette , but I thought it would go well with a darker one.  Blue in general is one of my favorite colors to style. Such a versatile color that can be paired with anything.

Rugged Winter

In my opinion you can wear white all year round if you want to. I don’t know where the rule came from , but sometimes you have to bend the rules a little bit. After one day of sunny weather I had to adjust back to the winter. I haven’t styled this blazer in a long time and I thought to myself I have enough new pieces to make it pop. During the process three colors came to mind when I was putting the outfit together, blue, green and gray.  I wore the chambray shirt underneath the blazer to balance it out with the blue/green striped tie. Originally I was going to wear a pair of grey khakis and my white bucs , but I felt like the white khakis complimented the fit better especially paired with the gray desert boots. In all I felt like the colors I picked really went well with the blazer.

Spring into Action

As much as I love winter and its ability to allow me to layer a lot (Layer Fanatic), I’m super excited about this coming spring season. In my opinion it brings the best out of people and their style. The brightness of the sun and the blossoming of flowers puts you in a feel good mood.  I put this fit together anticipating and inspired by the approach of the spring season. Dockers is starting to sell its spring selection of colored pants, which is good not for just dockers, but any brand. I’ve learned that it is best to shop a season before because it is a lot cheaper to purchase.  But, I instantly fell in love with the variety of colors they offer and the Azul Blue pair really caught my attention. To make a long story short, I wanted to bring some color to the cold winter. Don’t be afraid to add pops of color to your wardrobe.

  • Azul Sea Alpha Khakis by Dockers(Dockers $59.00)
  • Orange Gingham Button Down by Ralph Lauren(Consignment Store $18.00)
  • Cream SeerSucker Sports Coat by J.Crew(Consignment Store $10.00)
  • Dark Taupe/Coffee Buchanon Saddle Shoes by Bass (DSW $42.00)
  • Navy Blue Tie used as a Pocket Square(Salvation Army $1.00)

Attention 2 Detail 

Thrift Tip: Thrift stores are popular places to shop for bargains on secondhand items. Although sometimes confused with consignment shops, thrift stores sell items that have been donated, with the proceeds from sales usually benefiting charitable efforts.

 Consignment stores sell second-hand goods for reduced prices. Typical items include clothing, jewelry, belts and shoes. Consignment stores pay the consignor (seller) a percentage of the sale proceeds and keep the balance. Payment to the consignor occurs only after the goods sell.
