Remember when athleisure was cool? Lol me neither. This Frankenstein term was coined by the fashion industry about 3 years ago to describe the rising trend of activewear becoming ready to wear. Personally, I’ve always looked for reasons to wear basketball shorts, sweatpants, and hoodies for any occasion. (AKA a cozy boy.) At this point, the moniker is used to sell overpriced sports bra and leggings to people who only go to the gym to flex on the gram. (I mean, same but still.) Personally, I’m just waiting for the wave to be over, but until then I’ll be at work in my thrift store long sleeves tees and sneakers that cost way too much for me to be wearing them to half of the fleabag bars I go to.

My favorite lie that people tell about New York is that we have four actual seasons. I mean we “technically” do if you categorize them as follows: “Is it too hot to wear a jacket?” (Fall), “It’s beyond brick outside!” (Winter), “It’s still brick outside, but there’s…rain?” (Spring), “Wow, this is what hell must feel like, but at least there’s brunch.” (Summer) Either way, we’re still in between the last two which can mean anything when it comes to fits. Personally, I really love this look because it features a rain coat that doesn’t take away from the outfit itself. With something like this you can rock it to a semi-casual party or to the office if you’re trying to do a light flex on everyone in their button-ups and dark chinos. (I actually don’t know what people wear to the office anymore since I just do what I want.)

Mini Mix: Amerie Weather

May 24, 2017

I’m super excited to present my latest mix full of bops just in the for the warm weather. I like to call this a collection of music that you can stroll down the block to and pretend you’re in a music video. Also, if you’re not familiar with the title, I’d like to address Amerie’s ICONIC video for “Why Dont We Fall in Love.”

Enjoy and let me know your thoughts!

Now that spring is allegedly here (you can’t be too sure in the northeast) it’s a perfect time to talk about my favorite trend for the upcoming season, NEON! I wish I was joking, but all I want to do is look like a highlighter. I’m talking about bright yellows, oranges, blues, you get the picture. Before I get carried away, I’m trying to introduce some key pieces in my wardrobe, which I suggest you do as well. I wanted to complement the bright yellow with tints of green. Honestly, if you’re going anywhere in a crazy color hoodie you might as well have fun with the whole fit.
