No Monday Blues

 Contrary to most, I rather enjoy Mondays- it's a great beginning to a productive week ahead.  Monday is a day to plan, set goals, and be as efficient as possible to set the pace for the remainder of the week.
I begin the week with a crisp white shirt, patterned bow tie, and classic wool trousers.

A structured brown shoe is my favorite compliment to any outfit.  This rich hue contrasts nicely against the navy polka dots and grey trousers.  The blend of textures also enhances each piece uniquely.

I'm totally diggin' Ivory + Mason for their vintage frames, and range of eyewear.  Bollare introduced me to the brand, and now, I can't get enough.

A crisp white shirt is such an essential in any man's closet.  Picture it as a blank slate, and layer and color pair as you please.

I still can't believe it, and am so grateful for every one of you!  I'm beyond thrilled that you allow me to help solve those daily dressing conundrums.

Cheers to another 30!
