The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day! : “STREET SUIT IV”

No you’re not experiencing De Ja’Vu!  You’ve seen this fit’ before.  Quite recently actually in “Street Suit!” Only it was a lot wetter outside so I was wearing different shoes, I used my rain jacket for a Blazer & I’m not wearing a T-Shirt underneath, only a Tank Top.  The perfect fit for business & pleasure!  And by pleasure I mean riding around and gettin’ it on my bike!  You can’t live this lifestyle sagging fellas’.  No sir ree!  So tailor it up!  Yeah, I love this time of year!  I wonder if Green Fleet is riding tomorrow?  I sure hope so. “#BikeSelfieNashville” is back!  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

Happy Monday dudes!  Sorry, I guess the Spring Sun has got me feelin’ like I’m a surfer on the California Beach!  LoL  But it is definitely warmer today so today’s fit doesn’t require much.  This is why it’s important to have not only Joggers in the traditional Sweats make up, but also in lighter fabrics like Khaki.  The same goes for my Blazer.  I bought this in the Fall, but I went with this lighter Polyester on purpose so that it would transition well into the hotter days.  And I have retired the Long John’s so that the Khaki’s can breathe.  You see this is the genius of Layering.  You can control your temperature by the amount of layers you put on.  This is also why you don’t buy “ONE OFFS!”  You buy things that can be mixed & matched in any season for any reason!  Alright fellas…”LIVE ABOVE IT!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

Today I decided to break out some old friends!  My Radii boots!  I love these boots, but I’m just not a fan of the clicking noise they make when walking.  Sounds like a chic wearing heels.  So I don’t wear them often, but today I’m going to be in dirty auto shops while I search for a new wheel to replace my damaged one from the aftermath of the recent ice storms.  It’s also raining, so I don’t have to worry about getting these bad boys dirty.  They’re comfortable, stylish, & durable.  You can’t beat that.  Also, I rarely rock hats except for when it rains, but I bought 2 hats yesterday that I plan to use for more than rain.  As I become more comfortable in my Personal Style I’m starting to venture out.  The 2 hats make a distinctive statement about who I am.  I love comics, but as far as comics & clothing go, I’ve never been a fan, but I’m starting to find cool ways to merge them.  Generally I find comics inspired clothing to be too daunting.  I’m more low key, but the hats I bought work for 2 reasons: 1. They FIT well and 2. They don’t overwhelm.  The Voltron head actually reminds me of the Chicago Bulls logo.  Maybe that’s why it works so well?  My Spring/Summer Style plans to be SIMPLE.  So my attention will fall on the accents or details.  A nice lid, like this one, or my shoes…or a nice Rosary like these red ones I picked up from the store today and added to this gallery.  And finally I bought new draws! LoL Men, you should replace your undergarments every Spring. Just trust me on this one. I’m trying Haynes’ new tagless, moisture resistant product. Here’s to Simplicity & good hygiene! .  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

Errands to run, shopping to do, meetings to meet…just a day in the life of a young business professional.  LoL  I’m embellishing a bit, but you get the idea.  LoL  Anyway, It’s hot out, but the humidity has yet to come back from vacay so a light jacket is still needed, which is why I love Fall/Spring, the transitional periods, you get a little bit of everything.  Keep the jacket LITE fellas.  Too heavy and you’ll be sweatin’ bullets!  And that’s not COOL!  See what I did there?  “LIVE ABOVE IT!
