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.

Dressing Up Florals

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.]

I’m no stranger to the printed short sleeve. I DJ’d a luau party the other weekend and discovered I had 6 different options to pick from. (Including this shirt.) If you’re going to buy one, I say go all the way. Subtly is for the birds. This shirt has a lot going on which is great, because it makes styling it super simple. I opted for my summer staples of a pocket tee, cut off shorts, and some white low tops. You might not be ready to drop a lot of money on a piece like this since it’s the middle of summer and that’s cool too. You can literally find a really dope one at your local vintage store for under $15.
