I already mentioned the jacket required dinner I attended last week, but I wanted to show you guys what I decided to wear. I obviously like to dress up on the reg, but whenever an invite states a dress code, then I feel the anxiety to adhere to those guidelines.
“Jacket required” doesn’t mean formal so I had a little leeway when it came to the styling. A lot of dudes would (and did) dig out their go-to black suits from the closet, but I’m completely against that thinking. An occasion is never a reason to let your personal style fall to the wayside. Personally I love mixing bright colors, prints, and patterns so that’s exactly what I did.
I stood out at said dinner, but in a good way, and I did so by being me. Adding your own personal twist can make any outfit (no matter how formal it) a good look.

This “winter” has been a tricky one and as a major hypochondriac I’ve diagnosed myself with SAD. To lift my sprits up, I decided to bring a little West Coast flavor into my life.
Monochromatic dressing can be a major challenge condsidering you can end up looking like you just came from the Crayola factory. Personally I love mixing textures as you can see and letting my accessories pop. (C’mon how can you not love a graphic snapback and mirrored wayfarers?)

This post is focusing on church wear. Continue reading →
