Today, I tried out something new for myself. I've never been a fan of double toned clothing. I'm not even sure if that is the appropriate terminology to this style. Nonetheless, I tried something new and I loved how it turned out on me. Olive green is such a staple piece in my wardrobe, I have various chino pants, shorts, shirts, hoodies in this color. Therefore, it was nothing for me to experiment with some olive on olive action. I must admit that it turned out great, especially paired with my denim jacket.
I picked up the shirt from H&M's basics collection for around $5, and the shorts may have been $15-$20 from H&M as well. As for the denim jacket, I've had it since I was a freshman in high school. It's a normal wash Levi's jacket. I must say it is extremely durable. Although, there are some rips in it, it kind of plays off the distressed denim trend that is in right now.  My shiny silver shoes are from Zara, great purchase and they can really be used as a staple piece in any style you're going for. 

It's definitely been an adjustment getting back into blogging, but I'm loving every minute of it. I'd much rather put 1000% into my blog and creating content for my loyal readers than working for some job over the summer. I'm really glad to see things coming together, and hopefully the blog expands to something bigger and better. 

Until next time you guys,

A Pop of Color: Styling Teal Chino Pants

When you think of the summer, what comes to mind? The sun, the beach, sand, shorts, sandals, and bright colors! The summer is all about the bright color action. In today's look, i decided to experiment with my wardrobe and see what pop of color I could find.

Men's Teal Chino Pants

One thing about me is that I'm in love with the basics, blacks and whites are my go-to's in regards of collaborating with other colors. With this look, I felt as though the teal pants "popped" more with darker colors.

To start things off, a basic black t-shirt is essential in any wardrobe. Black is slimming, black is neutral, black is stunning, black is everything. Basically, if you don't own a black t-shirt, what are you doing? Also, I tucked in the shirt for this style because I noticed that this was another fashion trend that has seemed to resurface. This is a trend that I don't mind at all, I feel more sophisticated when the shirt is nicely tucked into my pants, but that might just be me. To each his own.

Up next are my teal pants, I purchased these pants a while back, I think I may have still been in high school. Nonetheless, I rarely wore them and decided that it was time to try and utilize them for once. Like I said, I felt as though the teal went much better with black rather than white. However, who knows, I may have to try this out with white and see how that looks.

And lastly, these shoes were purchased from ASOS. These suede black loafers are beyond comfortable. Although, i definitely feel like these loafers work better in the winter. They still worked out with this outfit. I loved styling this look and hope to be able to experiment even more with my style.

Life Update: Things are going great now that I finally have some time to myself. I can allocate my time to whatever I feel is important to me. Obviously, I'm still working but I have more time for the blog which is extremely important. I'm taking the time this summer to really enjoy myself, since this will be my last "chill" summer. At least I hope it is. I'm trying to experience as many golden moments this summer and share them with you all, as well as how fashionable I look while doing so. However, that's enough for now. I'll see you next time!

Casual Style: H&M Navy Blazer + Stripes + ASOS Suede Loafers

Happy Monday all! I know it has been a while since I've last posted! Forgive me, please! So much has been happening and being preoccupied with school has taken up so much of my time. However, I am back and that is all that matters. I have new motivation and new ideas for the blog that I am ready to display!

I wanted to share with you all a casual outfit that I wear quite often. It's very simple, yet so put together.
H&M Men's Navy Blue BlazerH&M Men's Navy Blue Blazer
Everything in this fit was reasonably priced! These are all pieces that I've worn in different styles and outfits.

First and foremost, the Blazer is from H&M. I purchased this on sale for $32, I believe. Extremely cheap and fashionable. As some of us may know, blazers are not the cheapest piece of an outfit. But ever since it was purchased, it has been worn in many different settings, such as going to class, awards ceremonies, church, etc. However, I prefer to wear it in much more casual outings.

The next piece is the striped t-shirt. Honestly, I think the striped t-shirt paired with the blazer really makes the t-shirt stand out. I love how the two patterns contrast against each other. The t-shirt was also purchased from H&M. This item is definitely a staple piece for any fashion-connoisseur. It's simple and stylish, and can be used flawlessly with any outfit.

I think my favorite items in this outfit are these jeans. Lately, I've become quite obsessed with this super distressed trend that has been making its way through the world of fashion. These jeans are, by far, one of my favorite pieces in my closet.  The light wash of the denim paired up with the suede shoes and the dark blazer makes everything stand out. If you couldn't tell, I love contrast! These jeans are extremely comfortable! I purchased them from Forever21's Mens collection. 

ASOS Burgundy Suede Loafers

Finally, the shoes! These burgundy suede loafers were purchased from one of my favorite shops on the internet, ASOS! Asos has such a great collection of all things men, ranging from accessories to clothes. These shoes are definitely a statement piece. However, if you noticed earlier in the post, I wore another pair of loafers with this outfit. The tan loafers are for a simple, basic look. Whereas, the suede burgundy loafers are for when you want to give your outfit that extra pop of color to make people turn their heads a few times as you walk by. Both pair are extremely comfortable. Nine times out of ten, you will probably catch me hanging out in my tan loafers. Whereas my suede loafers are for special events or whenever I'm feeling snazzy!

I hope you all enjoyed this first post to get me back into the blogging game! Feel free to leave love and contact me via my social media accounts!
