As the weather continues to warm up this spring season, you might’ve already start opting for shorts and slip-ons over boots and down jackets. However, with random weather shifts and rain, you’ll still need a light jacket and jeans as the season continues. Below, find some of my favorite spring styles like the bomber jacket, but also selects for the warmer weather and the upcoming summer. I’ll be updating this post both season, so be sure to come back each month for new additions!

As it becomes more evident that fall is here with the temperate dropping, it’s time to rethink the footwear collection. While some year-round footwear options such as leather sneakers are still good, there are some new (and classics) styles out there to consider getting to keep warm and dry, but looking stylish: Read the rest of this entry
Whether it’s winter, spring or any of other season you can never go wrong with a pair of black sneakers. I enjoy Lacoste’s range of chic and sporty footwear, and a style that recently caught my eye is the Mortain 3 Sneaker. Read the rest of this entry
Happy first day of winter! Keep your feet warm and stylish with these boot styles ready to take on the cold weather ahead: Read the rest of this entry
From my Texas road trip with Best Western, one of my favorite things we did was a food tour of Austin through its colorful and cheeky (and tasty) food trucks. For the outdoorsy dinner crawl in the Texas heat (which since it was over 90 degrees F was luckily more of a bus tour), I sported an ikat pattern top from Territory Ahead, denim shorts I made, and UGG’s lightweight Cantrell suede chukka boot style.

Shopping the other day I couldn’t help but notice all the different non holiday-related sales going on. The retail gods must’ve learned it’s my bday this week and wanted to surprise me or something. In case you haven’t had a chance to take advantage yet, or are worried there’s nothing left, here are my favorite on sale boots, shoes and kicks that are perfect for the transition into the spring weather ahead:
Adding extra style and personality to a person’s outfit, headphones are a statement accessory and part of our daily lives. From my In The Bag series, I styled my Marley Liberate On-Ear Headphones (which I fell in love with for its mixed-media design of stainless steel, natural wood and the brand’s blend of reclaimed hemp and organic cotton) with a winter-ready outfit with on tones based off its color palette: blue, grey and brown.
Shot just before the winter storm hit, the UGG Ory boots would’ve had no problem handling Janus with its waterproof leathers and Thinsulate technology for warmth.
Working on styling different outfits this winter, I noticed a lot of great mixed-media boots out right now that are worth a mention for their great versatility and usefulness this season with the constant weather changes. Mixing leather and wool or suede, or pebbled and smooth leathers, check out five favorites below:

Visiting London on a press trip this month, I took the opportunity to indulge in some shopping sightseeing. Exploring one of Covent Garden‘s best streets for men’s fashion and grooming, King Street (above) is filled with London brands such as Burberry Brit and Hackett London, and others you may not be too familar with such as Oliver Sweeney (luxury footwear, accessories and outerwear), Murdock London (a barbershop and grooming line, located in Hackett) and Jo Malone (fragrances and skincare).
International brands continue to set up shop here, and now include the first Opening Ceremony in Europe, 7 for All Mankind, Sandro (Parisian luxury), Lyle & Scott (Scottish knitwear) and Aesop (Melbourne grooming and skincare).
Styling myself for the fall to pre-winter weather, I went with a reversible varsity coat from Kenneth Cole that offers a wool side and a quilted one (see both below). For an extra pop of color to the look, I wore my Gap garment-dyed skinnies in forest green.
UGG‘s lightweight, black leather Westly style desert boots with blown-rubber outsoles, I was comfortable with all the exploring I did in Covent Garden and the rest of London, and I geared up with a camo Tumi Lejeune Backpack Tote to stow any goodies I found while wandering. Next shopping stop, Floral Street:
A street up from King, on Floral Street you’ll find a mix heritage and modern brands. On the west end of the street you’ll find the Paul Smith flagship, which is also Sir Paul Smith’s first one he opened and the first in fashion shop to open in Covent Garden. Also on the west, Ted Baker and Dune London (footwear and accessories). Heading east, you’ll find Spanish shoe brand Camper, British luxury accessory brand Mulberry, and Yohji Yamamoto and addias’ edgy Y-3, which just opened this year.
