Monochromatic grey look to begin this Monday.
You guys know this shawl collar cardigan by A/X has been one of my favorites of the season.
I added some black accessories into the mix for a subtle contrast,
but overall clean and fresh look.
I always like to add optical glasses for that extra touch of elegance.

Wearing Black and Grey

I've been loving darker colors lately, don't know if you've noticed.
Today i'm mixing a subtle black and grey look that can be worn for a productive
day of work, or just for that man about town.
Here's what i'm wearing...

Blazer: Bar III
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
Vest: Thrifted
Shirt: Twillory
Pants: Paige Denim
Socks: Mack Weldon
Shoes: Aldo
Briefcase: Aldo
Scarf: Aldo

I've found that mixing neutral shades is easiest when getting dressed.
I kept a dark palette today using grey, black, and navy.
Since all the colors are very dark, they neutralize each other and create a look that just works.
You're more than welcome to get creative and throw in a pop of color 
by swapping the white shirt for a patterned one; black briefcase for a brown one; and 
colored socks rather than solid.
The best thing about dressing up everyday is that it's a personal thing.
However you feel most comfortable and confident is what will always look best-
no matter what.  Always stay true to your personal style, without the hesitation 
of other people's approval.

Have a great day Gents, and always stay stylish!

Rainy Day Attire

It's finally cooled down enough to wear sweaters and jackets comfortably around LA.
It's been raining off and on for the past two weeks and Angelenos are running amuck 
trying to stay warm and get around town. 
Today, i'm wearing light layers to keep me warm and dry for a day of filming and running errands.


#PersolIcons Miami Diary I

Art Deco vibes at their finest at the Shelborne Hotel.
Our Miami trip wouldn't be complete without a drive over to the artsy Wynwood neighborhood,
followed by a stroll to Panther Coffee.  Wynwood was booming with magnificent art, 
culture, and community.  The combination of small families and friends alike were
wandering the streets, buying trinkets on the sidewalk, and exploring the Wynwood Walls.
We're so glad we got to meet up with some close friends before flying back to LA.

Last weekend we had the privilege of traveling with Persol to Miami for Art Basel festivities.
It was our very first trip to MIA, so we were stoked to land and begin exploring.
Upon landing, we were escorted to our vintage-chic hotel: The Shelborne Wyndham Grand,
 which was beautifully nestled on Collins Ave Art Deco inspired row.  
The 50's vibe had us feeling like we were in a time warp, but with modern gadgets and shower heads.
After unpacking our bags, we headed down to the pool to meet up with 
the other Bloggers for lunch and some amazing libations.

Our trip was jam packed with fun, laughter, adventure, and lots of sun.
Exploring Miami through the lenses of our #PersolIcons was truly unforgettable.
The white sand, and cerulean beachfronts were perfect for lounging and chatting
with the crew.  It was so awesome to re-connect with old friends, and 
make so many new ones along the way.  

We want to thank Stacy and the Persol team for organizing such an amazing trip, and 
for being so hospitable to us all.  
Stay tuned for more about our trip in our Miami Photo Diary part 2 tomorrow!
