Going back through this blog there are pictures of me rocking the tropical shirt. (Oh hey, 2013.) Apparently after all this time some people still don’t know how to wear the short sleeve printed shirt without looking like an extra in The Brady Bunch Goes to Hawaii. (Nvm, that actually sounds amazing.) If you’re not on an island, you’ve got to do better. While you can wear one of these several ways, I decided to style it open with a white tee underneath to break up the print. It’s a little early in NYC to wear shorts so I teamed it with a straight leg pair of jeans (it’s not just all about the slim/skinny fits) and light colored shoes. As with everything,, accessorize according to your own taste. Obviously I’ve never met a wide brim hat I didn’t like and a little something something on my fingers.
I don’t care what season it is, I’ll still find a way to wear an all black fit. With this look, I wanted to show how the white accents can add a little depth to a murdered out ensemble. Another ~aesthetic~ choice I’m bringing into spring is the 80s/90s bad boy with the heart of gold. You know, the one who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, but turns out to be a great person at the end of the story. Long story short: hoodies under plaid shirts, distressed denim, and work boots are still poppin. And as the prophet Future said: “You do what you want when you’re poppin.’”
As much as I enjoy putting together a LQQK (that’s “look” but ya know…fancier) come springtime I’ve grown tired of layering (that’s a blatant lie but follow where I’m going) and prefer something a little more low-maintenance. You can never go wrong with a denim jacket and tee combo. Since it’s on trend and I love the Mr. Krabs meme, it’s a no brainer that I decided to break up this outfit with bright nautical stripes. While you can certainly just throw something like this on with any old crumpled shirt and sneakers, where the fun in that?
My favorite part about having a blog and reading it is that I can all myself out. Remember when I said I’d stop wearing blues head to toe? Well I lied. If it ain broke don’t fix it and if the denim jacket is poppin’ then buy it. (Words to live by, friends.) I’ll elaborate in another post, but I’ll be leaving in slouchy trousers that waterfall over my shoes all season. (That is when I’m no wearing my unhemmed skinny jeans.) When in doubt think dad vibes. It’s all about dad vibes. (But like cool and with clothes that are way more expensive looking.)
