Elevated Off-Duty: Wool Bomber Jacket

Let's get real. When the weekend rolls around, keeping it casual is often the name of the game. I know that's definitely true for me. A comfortable uniform of jeans and a sweatshirt is sometimes all I need for if I'm just running errands or grabbing coffee. When it comes to casual dress, nothing completes an outfit like a great piece of outerwear. Elevate your off-duty style with a wool bomber jacket.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Mustang Unleashed

My very first car was a Ford Mustang. A 1989 two-door hatchback. It was red and pretty much the coolest car a 16-year-old kid in a high school rock band could have. Plenty of room for carting all my gear around, and plenty of style, which was helpful when chasing cute girls. I still remember going to the used car lot with my father to pick it up and drive it home. My father has always been a big fan of tradition, and what I found out on that trip was that his first car was a Mustang as well.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Neutrality

Even if we don't admit it to ourselves, we all like to stand out a little. That could mean having a uniform of sorts, a signature detail, or just something that's identifiable as you in your daily dress. One easy way to stand out without "standing out" in the sense of going overboard, is to go monochromatic. I've done a fair bit of monochromatic dressing on the blog—see here and here for navy, here and here for black, and here for grey. Summer is a great time to go lighter and brighter and here's one way to work in whites and neutrals.  VIEW MORE ▶︎
