Happy Monday people!  Today is a special day because, well… it’s Monday and because today you become a MAN!  Today…I teach you…how-to-tie…a scarf!  LoL Well, at least one of the ways.   So let’s get crackin’!

First we must start with the shoes of course and today’s rides are my Sierra, Cole Haan, Zerogrand Chukkas!  I can’t praise these kickz enuff!  This colorway definitely adds to any outfit!  $278

Then of course there are the Joggers!  I’ve fallen in love with this style, mostly because of the COMFORT!  I mean, to be so comfortable yet stylish, while you work, is just PRICELESS!  These are my American Stitch Joggers from Saks 5th Avenue.  $40

And then there’s the top which is an oldie, but a goodie!  I bought this Henley from H&M about 3-4 years ago so honesty I don’t remember the cost, but it’s H&M so I’m sure it was affordable.  It’s definitely my favorite Henley.  Keeps me reasonably warm, the collar design is just super, and the fit is timeless.  Fellas, you need a few good Henley’s, that’s just the way it is.  Especially if you’re in decent shape.  It really shows off your work.  It’s almost the female equivalent of leggings, because women love arms.

Next we add a nice fitted Blazer to the mix and this is what really pushes a seemingly lax outfit into formal territory.  It truly is a beautiful balance.  You want your Blazer to be to things: 1.  Slim fitting and 2. A different color from your Joggers maintain the balance and not make it seem like your trying to replace the suit.  I know it sounds weird, but remember it’s all about BALANCE.  Not necessarily matching and it’s also about making it seem EFFORTLESS.  You need to be a veteran to pull a same color Blazer off, but I’ll tackle this at a later date.  The Blazer was my uncle’s or cousin’s or something like that so it’s vintage, you won’t find it, and it was $FREE.99!

And now for the MAIN EVENT!!!  HOW TO TIE A SCARF!  PART 1: The JPSKILLZ Noose!  There are names for different knots, but I prefer creating my own so, here we go!  First you fold the scarf in half.

Then you place said scarf around thine neck with your neck being in the middle.

Then you pull the open end of the scarf through the loop you created by folding it.  Be careful not to become entangled in said scarf.

With the end of said scarf firmly in hand, pull the end until it tightens around your neck like a noose, but not too tight, it’s not really a noose.  You need to breathe.
