“STYLE AND CR8TIVITY GO HAND IN HAND.” SHALAWAM!
My formal days are beginning to look a lot like my informal days and for me…this is a good thing! The Athlete meets the Gentleman! I LIKE IT! “The Comvertable Gentleman” is in full effect! I’m Layering 3 Jackets today! The KEY is to have a nice light Base Layer, a solid mid-range Transition Layer, and a nice Tailored Top Layer! Started with my Black/White, Cole Haan Zerogrand Wingtips ($278), then my Navy, Banana Republic Joggers ($40 SALE), my Sean Jean Crew Neck T-Shirt from Ross ($10 SALE), my Nike Running Dri-Fit ($10 SALE), next there’s the 3 jackets: My Nike Track Jacket ($20 SALE), my Nike Golf Jaket ($30 SALE), and my Navy, Express Top Coat ($278). “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
Wednesday has arrived and by now you’re either making moves or making excuses. For me it’s the former and I love semi-warm days like this to make them! Only in Nashville baby! So I don’t need much to keep me warm. I’m rockin’ my Sequoia Suede, Cole Haan Zerogrand Chukkas ($278), my Black, En Noir Moto Skinny Jeans from The GAP ($40 SALE), my Black, American Apparel Henley ($30), my favorite Vintage Button-Up ($FREE.99), My Dark Gray, Mossimo Blazer from Target ($70), and my Green, Merona Vest ($30)! “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
Chill day today, nothing too important so just need to be sleek! “I’M ON SLEEK!” LoL You just witnessed the birth of a new phrase! Rockin’ my Black/White, Suede, Cole Haan Zerogrand Wingtips ($278), my Saks Off 5th Ave, Black, American Stitch Joggers ($40 SALE), Black, Nike Pro Combat Dri-Fit ($Free.99), Navy, Express Top Coat ($278), my Gray/Black, Banana Republic Reversible Vest ($40 SALE), and Black, Express Wool Scarf ($30). Oh and it’s pretty cold today so I decided to put on my “No Show” GAP socks. You can still be fly and functional at the same time. It’s all about the tricks of the trade! “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
Guess what day it is? Guess what day it is!? HUMP DAY!!! LoL the day where you have to Man Up and Soldier through! So I started with my Military inspired, Green, V-Neck Sweater by Marc Ecko from Dillard’s ($20 SALE)! Then there’s my industrial flavored, Black, En|Noir Skinny Jeans from The GAP ($80)! I use my Cole Haan, Sequoia Suede, Zerogrand Chukkas ($278) like Military Boots. Remember : A small cuff at the bottom of your preferred jeans works great with Chukkas. I Layered my look with my new Cream, Zip-Up, Shawl Cardigan by Banana Republic ($40 SALE) which is the perfect sidekick for all my Zerogrands. Next I pulled my Denim Jacket by The GAP ($40) and finished off my cold barrier with my Express Top Coat ($278). I’m ready to divide and conquer…how about you? “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
A couple of rare details today. I’m wearing a tie AND I buttoned the top button! LoL I don’t know, I was just feeling a bit Dapper today. So I reached for my Black, M-1 Skinny Tie ($10) from Macy’s and coupled it with my Merona, Plaid Button-Up from Target ($25). Then I finished it with my Maroon, GAP Merona Shawl Sweater($20 SALE) and Gray, Mossimo Blazer ($70. Of course I’m wearing Zerogrands ($278) and I chose my Khaki, Express Joggers ($40 SALE) to add a bit of edge. “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
