New season, so time to try out some new things. One piece I’ve wanted to try for a while is the kimono. In all honesty, I got this one right before summer started, but was weary of that fine line of cultural appreciation and appropriation. I have a vintage one from the 60s that I’ve never wore for that exact reason. The cut of this isn’t as traditional and it’s black so it looks like another layering piece. Speaking of walking thin lines, I styled this to be cozy and simple yet clean and stylized. (Not sure what that means either, I’m running on like 3 hours of sleep.) I think it’s pretty dope to “borrow” from other cultures, but it doesn’t take much to do a little googling and make sure you’re not accidentally being offensive. (The more you know….)

With summer coming to an end pretty soon, it’s time to get your head out of the clouds and back on the grind. I haven’t been in school for a while and don’t plan on going back anytime soon (sorry mom!), but I still like to take this time of year to close out the season strong and prepare for the ever so busy months to come. To prepare for losing summer Fridays and lazy Sundays, I suggest putting all your ducks in order. A key piece in my wardrobe for the last couple years has been a backpack because of its easiness. When selecting one, it’s crucial to find a bag that works with the majority of your wardrobe, but also fits seamlessly into your lifestyle. I really dig this one from SWISSGEAR because it has so many compartments for all my gear (laptops, adapters, wires, headphones, etc…) and doesn’t look too bulky which is important because I’m not trying to look like a Ninja Turtle. If you’re looking for a new bag for school, work, or just because you want to I’d highly suggest you check out the SWISSGEAR site here and pick something out to protect what’s most valuable to you while you’re on the go.

As all of you know, my love for music runs pretty deep. It’s literally the reason I started DJing (well that and because I was sick of lame DJs.) That being said, ever since I’ve gotten the new HP Spectre I’ve been able to travel everywhere with it since it’s thinner and lighter than any other computer I’ve owned. Instead of being annoyed by how heavy my bag is I can take my show on the road and jam out/create mixes wherever I want. You can say that it’s helped boost my creativity. That being said check out my latest dance playlist below to keep grooving through the rest of summer.
