Magazines and the media always tell us to wear vertical stripes because they make you look thinner. I personally don’t give a damn about looking thinner I care about looking and feeling confident. I love this sweater because it has HORIZONTAL stripes and bright colors to add to the attention. I mean this sweater represents everything us “big fellas” shouldn’t wear right?! According to all those unrealistic style tips from people that don’t get how people actually work because they are out of touch with reality. Ignore the haters and wear what makes you feel great!! And I feel great in this stripes 🙂 #StripeLove #GapLove
Somedays you just gotta put one a smile! And I’m not talking about some cheesy fake one either. We often get consumed with work and life that we forget to take a second, look around us and just smile for what we have. It’s easy to get lost in the struggle and hustle…..trust me I know. Honestly, I often get wrapped up in it myself but for some reason during this shoot at the University of South Carolina’s iconic horseshoe I felt life. It hugged me and reminded me of all the amazing things I am blessed with; health, family, an amazing wife and an awesome fashion blog. I couldn’t help but smile at watching my daughters chase each other around the horseshoe (behind the scenes) while shooting this look. I encourage all of you to take a moment out of your busy week to just appreciate what we have 🙂 Don’t forget to smile!
P.S. Happy Birthday to my oldest daughter Temperance! She turns 6 today 🙂
My wife got me this sweater for Christmas, when I saw it the “Blue Clues” theme song started playing in my head. Childhood memories are the best, we often reminisce on awesome things that occurred during our younger times. When we get older we tend to have comfort in items that bring back that memory it’s our safe haven. We feel some kind of connection with a piece clothing simply because it may bring back a memory of a color we liked as a kid or even a toy we played with. It’s always a good thing to have some sort of good memory about your childhood, I guess that’s what they mean when they say “never grow up be a big kid”! It helps keep things in perspective while also having a remembrance of moments that can bring joy to your heart 🙂
I haven’t rocked a turtle neck since grade school! It’s so nostalgic to wear one and feel so comfortable…..next is overalls. I remember as a kid my sister and I had matching red Tommy Hilfiger turtle necks with black denim overalls. That looked so fly to me……a part of me wishes some of the styles from the 90’s would makes a strong comeback. Fashion is forever evolving and eventually overalls will be one the hottest things around again and no will be able to deny such an amazing throwback item. Be sure to shop some of my favorite turtle necks below!! Hope your 2017 is going well so far! 🙂 #TurtleNeck2017
