What to Wear on a First date
Blazer: ASOS/ Shirt: H&M/ Tie: Banana Republic/ Jeans: Big Star/ Shoes: Florshiem by Duckie Brown/ Tie Clip: Thrifted
Now we all know that feeling, what do I wear on my first date. Unintentionally I found the ideal outfit that is relaxed, comfortable, and looked polished just enough for a fitst date. You don’t wanna come off overdressed, but also want to look cute and impress them. So this is for all you guys that are getting ready for a big night out, but lets just hope you don’t show up in the same outfit. ;)
Jacket: ASOS/ Overalls: Forever 21/ Sweater: Volcom/ Shoes: ASOS/ Laces: Hickies/ Socks: Richer Poorer/ Sunglasses: Banana Republic
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fun weekend and enjoyed watching the Oscars last night. Over the weekend I took a day trip to Jersey with my two friends Anthony and Mac, despite their tardy behavior, we had a fun girls day out of the city. We packed our outfits and left the city to shoot three looks, eat some delicious home cooked food, and attend my friends cousins birthday party. While cruising around my friends hometown, we came across this park that was perfect for an outdoor overalls story. Overalls have been trending for some time now, and I think they’re a piece that’s so versatile everyone should have at least one pair. I’ve worn mine from a halloween costume as Luigi, to a plaid situation, and now a bit more grungy Ramones look. An outfit that can go from the outdoors to the city streets.
An Americana Inspired Outfit

I hope you all enjoyed the winter Olympics, I know I did, well mostly all the news about #SochiProblems. Though now that they are over, American Eagle had the idea of doing an Americana Bloggers Do it Better blog post with a red, white, and blue theme. Considering when I took these photos it was during a snowstorm, I think it fit the winter olympics perfectly. To see how my other friend Marcel styled his ‘Americana” look, head over to American Eagle’s Blog.
6 Pieces for an Effortless Outfit
Jacket: Zara/ Sweater: Kenzo/ Jeans: Armani Exchange/ Shoes: Paul Evans/ Socks: Happy Socks/ Sunglasses: Kenneth Cole
Happy Monday! For the first time in what’s felt like months we had a beautiful weekend here in New York, and I luckily had a free Sunday to enjoy a taste of Spring. After aggressively starting my Sunday at David Barton Gym’s CYC class (yes, I went fully hungover and all). I wanted to spend the rest of my day outside in a comfortable outfit. Boom. 6 pieces later and I was set for a day of fun in the sun. A little reminder why I love New York.

Little do you all know (or maybe some of you actually do), I am a student 3/7 days a week on top of managing three freelance positions. This isn’t exactly the easiest task and sure does consume a lot of my time, if not 90% of my time daily, but still I push forward and continue to blog. Sometimes it is daunting not being able to put my all into my blog like many of my other friends and acquaintances, but the reminder from you all is apart of the reason I continue to invest my time. Proving that even when everyone else says they’re too busy but really only have school and possibly one job (if that), that hopefully consistency will have an end result worth me investing my time in. Just as in today look, I was coming straight from two 3 hour back to back classes to shoot this look with my friend Mac. A spare hour that I made happen, but just afterwards I had another three hours of work to be done. Though even with all the work I don’t spare on my outfits when attending school, I focus on comfort with an edge while staying true to my non-traditional menswear style.
Thank you all for following along!
