I love the unstructured style of Spring. From the way the trees grow, to the bustle in the streets... it all awakens. Take a few notes from this photo above. He has a solid sense of deconstruction while staying put together. His oxford is peeking out of the back his blazer, his trousers are cut as if a flood is coming, and he is doing this sans socks. In short, if you could steal 2 out of 3 of these style points on a daily basis, you'll have a solid base this season.
Instagram and song//artist of the week will be a new running feature on the blog. A way to keep everyone creatively engaged while in between big projects. I hope you enjoy... also Google NYC was dope.
The Sam Cooke of the modern age... you're welcome.
I've been obsessed with John Updike quotes lately... and it's the romanticism behind everything he says. It doesn't even have to be about love, it's the way he is able to capture life with his words. I strive for that deep understanding of life and what makes us who we are. Why we get lost in someone's eyes and why my skin tingles at the sound of a voice.
As April begins to rain down on us, I can't help to think that in a couple months I'll be turning 20 and crossing the halfway point of my college career. The real world is starting to barrel towards me and I'm scrambling to pick up my legos. But that's life... All is fleeting... but there are some things that have been staying a constant and for that I press forward.
While traveling I learned there are two things essential in the London style guide: fresh kicks and a solid coat. This gent has both of those things going for him in this shot. Even though I am a big New Balance fan, I would be a liar to say I don't have a pair of Nikes of my own. Take notice that his sneaks aren't screaming at you, they are toned down... even with the red swoosh. However, my favorite part of this outfit is the coat. The sleek tailored camel hair coat is cut perfectly and still has a great sense of motion to it. I wish I had more time to grab shots like this while in London, but for now we can take time to appreciate this one.
