One of my favorite things about Fall is the fact that almost everything starts to turn colors, my favorite color to be exact, red! So the tricky part about red is that it pretty much screams, "LOOK AT ME". So to prevent all that attention, I dialed it down with shades and grey tones, using red only as an accent. Unless if you like attention you needy bitch.

Cable knits are probably the epitome of cold weather, that and cuddling. But cable knits usually lead to cuddling ;] so...hahahaha. Anyways, I've been looking everywhere to find a nice fitted cable knit for myself for the longest time, so when I saw this beauty on ASOS, I couldn't help myself, especially in my color of choice this year, OD green. What are some of your cold-weather must haves this year? I'll make a list of mine and post it up soon. ALSO, I may do a giveaway sometime soon for Christmas, let me know what you guys think.

Earning my Stripes

Some people often say don't wear the same pattern twice, to them I say, go flog yourself. As you can see, I'm not one for that saying. Especially when it comes to stripes. I think it's applicable in certain situations, such as wearing a floral jacket and a floral shirt, but I don't think anyone in their right mind would want to look like a walking bush. When it comes to styling stripes though, having different styles of stripes can really complement a look, such as the stripes quilted on the jacket in comparison to the stripes on my shirt, unifying/completing it by the stripes on the shoes. But of course, such are the ramblings of a madman, let me know what you guys think!

Calm Surrender

Ready for Fall? Well too late, it's here. In fact, the cold kind of just stormed right in. Which I'm completely glad for tbh. I've had enough of the heat, ready to bust out my coats. Like this beautiful cotton pea coat for instance. Not quite cold enough for puffy jackets, but it sure is just perfect for cotton jackets and thin sweaters. What's your favorite fall essentials?

Times I Wished

In honor of Veteran's day yesterday, I decided to do a camo themed look. This backpack itself has actually seen the field, worn here as a casual rucksack. The backpack belongs to a USMC friend of mine, God bless those who serve/served our country :]

ANYWAYS, there are times when I wished I could just blend into the background....but then I think about it and I realize, no way! Cause I'm a peacock, I needa be seen! Y'ALL THOUGHT THIS POST WAS GONNA BE EMO, PSYCHHHHH. I do wish I could go invisible though, it'd be fun. But sadly I can't so....the best I can do is wear camo! Let me know your thoughts!

Californian Chill

This jacket is gonna be on the blog for a good loooong time. Totally in love with it. Thanks so much Scotts Menswear for it. Perfectly just in time for the cold Californian chill! And I know some of you are thinking, wait, CA gets a chill? The answer is, no. We don't really. Which is kinda perfect that this jacket is the way it is. It's thin, lightweight, yet warm enough to keep you nice and cozy without suffocating you.
