Golden State of Mind.

I’m baaaaaaaaAAAck!!!! Miss me?! I sure missed blogging! So I know I said I would be updating from Cali, but to be honest something comes over me in California and it’s like when I’m there I just completely space off my real life responsibilities and duties. Anyways, I had an otherworldly time at Disneyland, spending time with my family, eating anything even remotely considered “junk food”, and just basking in all the greatness that Cali has to offer! I truly live my happiest moments while I’m in California, and it’s not just because of Disneyland (which is a big factor). It’s because it is a place where I feel 100% without a doubt comfortable and well, happy! I also love to pull out all the stops in terms of my wardrobe. It is appropriate given the fact that where I live is not in the slightest bit stylish. When I say “stylish” I mean the people just don’t understand the things I wear and all the intricacies that come with fashion. In Cali, no one bats an eye, and some even compliment my looks! Stuff like that just does not happen in New Mexico, so you can imagine my excitement! 

This look was a super quick and comfortable fit that I threw on to do some light souvenir shopping (which rapidly turned into a 2 hour long trip). I’m obsessed with these vintage Adidas track pants I got awhile back. Not only are they crazy comfy, but they’re very reminiscent of the Y2K vibe that I’m so wildly into right now. To add to the vintage nature of this outfit, I threw on my trusty old New Balance dad sneakers and called it good! At first I was skeptical to pair the two together because I felt it would be a little too much, but they complimented each other harmoniously! No outfit of mine is complete without a white tee, so naturally I gave it a nice west coast twist by tying a knot. I find it to be a simple yet chic way to spice up a summer look! There are so many more pictures that I’m dying to share with you guys so make sure to stay tuned! Stay fab my friends!

Vintage Dior & Dad Sneaks

I’ll be on my way to California by morning, so I figured a quick post wouldn’t hurt! I am absolutely 100% infatuated with this Vintage Dior knit that I scored awhile back! It is one of those rare finds that reminds you why you thrift/vintage shop in the first place! I’m very glad I found one in black because it’s so easy to  style and pair with! Obviously I chose my classic and most favorite pair of Levis 501s to give a 90’s vibe to the look. To continue the 90’s vibe, I threw on these insane vintage New Balances I thrifted. They’re my $6 version of the Balenciaga Triple S and I couldn’t be more in love! Have a great weekend and make sure to stay tuned for all my Cali antics & looks! Stay fab!!

Cream Dream Top. 

Every now and then I come across a piece that I fall head over heels in love with, and then proceed to wear consistently after. This top is one of those pieces. When I saw it I was instantly reminded of a Céline top from a few seasons back. It was not cropped when I purchased it but I wanted to make it more summer appropriate! Tops like this are so much fun to style because there truly is countless options of what to pair it with, which makes getting dressed a whole lot smoother. I wore this look to my moms graduation so I added the super high waisted, grey plaid trousers to dress it up a bit. My snakeskin Urban Outfitters boots were the obvious choice of footwear because they add a more original, unique flare to any outfit! I’m also dying over the rounded, rectangular shape of these sunnies! It’s a fresh and modern shape of eyewear that I have been dying to try! I’m getting ready to leave for California to celebrate my mom getting her masters and I am so excited to shoot and share content from my favorite place on earth! Make sure to stay tuned! Have a great week and stay fab!

Unconventional Denim & Grey Checked Trousers 

You may be wondering “what does he mean by unconventional denim” or you may not. Either way, what I meant by that is that I’m currently on the prowl for different ways to style a denim piece, this being one of them. I’ve always admired the way some people in fashion have a knack for coming up with new ways to style certain pieces. A fanny pack over the chest, sweaters as scarves, and even layering belts! The options are absolutely endless!

I buttoned this denim jacket kind of assymetrically to give it that dope look of the thousand dollar Balenciaga denim jacket that i dream about. It’s a simple trick that has a monumental impact on any outfit! I paired it with these new trousers I thrifted. Grey plaid had a huge moment this past fall, and I intend on carrying it out through spring/Summer! It’s such a timeless print, with endless amounts of  styling options. I love the contrast of the grey & green from my Stan Smith’s so much! It’s a color combo I never thought I’d find myself utilizing, but I looove it! Also, this baby Adidas bag is on major rotation right now in my wardrobe. It’s classic, easily portable, and so fucking cute I can’t even comprehend. It’s the perfect finishing touch to an already, “fire” outfit, good one huh?! Have a great week and stay fab!

Final days of Winter.

Spring could not possibly seem further away! It feels as though Winter was like a big, ugly pimple you just can’t get rid of no matter how hard you try. No matter how many times I made myself believe it was nice outside, nothing seemed to be changing. Until now. It’s finally that time of the year when you can physically feel the seasons changing. Cloudy, wet and brisk days turn into sunny, bright and warm ones. One of my favorite times of the year is when a season transitions into another. It’s a time to dispose of the old, and welcome in the new, in terms of wardrobe and in general!

A personal favorite way of mine to welcome in a new season is by pairing a comfy knit with my favorite pair of jeans. It is a simple yet ingenious way to keep yourself warm and ready for whatever the day throws at you. Also, adding a statement boot or shoe, like these snakeskin boots, can help to give this transitional look a little extra flare. So when you’re hysterically deciding what the perfect transitional outfit is, just go with the comfiest jeans you have, a killer sweater, and some eye catching footwear, and you’re alllll set! Have a great week and stay fab!

Suiting with a little Lace. 

What makes fashion so exciting is that it’s something anyone can put their own personal spin on. Everyone has their own personal sense of style, whether they’ve identified it or not. We as humans are entitled to have our own thoughts, feelings, and yes, personal style! 

For me, something I like to play around with is mixing masculine and feminine pieces. Delicate textures like lace and red satin coincide with the edgier and more classic ones (like denim) to make a very fresh and modern look! This lace t shirt was an absolute godsend from ASOS!! It’s one of those pieces that you just know you’re going to be together forever. I feel the exact same way towards these 501s, they’re versatile, simple, yet one of the most classic and chic fashion statements of all time. Also, the circular shape of this gorgeous red satin bag I thrifted awhile back, brings a timeless yet modern feel to the look. I like adding a pop of a single color into an outfit because it gives it some more depth. Do not be afraid to take a risk when it comes to your outfits. Mixing masculine & feminine pieces is a full proof and easy way to make an outfit a little more interesting! Have a great week and stay fab!

Pinstripes & A Cropped Hoodie 

Hiya! Yes I’m alive and well, even though it may seem otherwise due to my absence. Sometimes my life gets to be so much that I just completely space off things like blogging and then randomly remind myself to post! 

This look is my attempt at incorporating black back into my wardrobe. Not that it ever really left, but I definitely stopped wearing it as much as I used to. This coming season is going to be all about pastels and bright colors, so naturally I have to go against the current and do the opposite! Haha just kidding! But seriously, I’m a guy that loves his color, but there will never not be an exceptionally special place in my heart for black. I recently thrifted these pants, and I’ve never been more satisfied with a purchase. They have a great fit and the pinstripe pattern has always been a big fave of mine. It’s a fun pattern that can be styled in a plethora of ways. One of those ways is with a cropped band hoodie, and can I just say, they work together outstandingly! Have a great weekend and as always, stay fab!!
