Your favorite cozy boy is back looking like skate park trash. (That’s a good thing btw.) I was talking to someone the other day and they asked how and why I wore my clothes oversized with my small frame. (Don’t let the pictures fool ya, I’m actually v. short IRL) The why is simple: because I want to. The how is a little more complicated. Because of my lack of torso, I can’t pull off most longline tees. Instead, I usually buy a shirts two sizes  bigger and run them through the wash before wearing  if it seems like I’m drowning in fabric. The same doesn’t work for trousers. Tailors are your best friend when it comes to catering your baggy clothes to fit your body type. That being said, not all pants can be hemmed and still maintain their original shape so be mindful the next time you purchase pieces that make you look like a fly potato sack.

Fresh off a weekend in Miami (story for a later day), I’m still rocking floral shirts this summer. For this go around, I decided to go the less casual route. To let the shirt shine on its own,  I paired with some simple navy trousers. Can we talk about these shoes, doe? They’re a dope addition to my closet and help this outfit pop without looking too busy. They might not be everyone’s “thing” I feel like everyone should have a pair of shoes that say “What are those?!” (But in a good way.)

Stay Cool, Look Cooler

I refuse to let the heat kill my vibe. In an effort to not pass out in the middle of the street, you still can’t be wearing all the same pieces from winter. (Or at least in the same way.) As always linen or linen blends are your friend if you want to wear something that’s usually heavy like a bomber or longline shirt. (Don’t make any sudden movements though because you will wrinkle easy af.) Cropped trousers and loose pants are also a go-to of mine when not wearing shorts. At the end of the day, you can do whatever you want because the temperature shouldn’t dictate your fly.

[Ed note: I am not responsible for your hospital bill if you're sent to the ER for heat exhaustion.]

It’s almost time for America’s birthday. And to celebrate the country I love/hate (30%/70%), I created a mix to get your groove on at your rooftop parties, BBQs, or a home writing a thinkpiece about how no one is truly free in the USA. Enjoy some bangers from today and yesteryear. Personally, I like listening to it on shuffle. I’ll probably be adding to it all weekend so feel free to leave suggests in the comments or talk to me on Twitter.
