I have not figured out the Italian's secret with walking everywhere in hard bottom shoes so I just stick to my Nike's most of the time in the day. A bike is definitely going to be bought in the near future. 

 I started my day with this on.

 When the evening came I had to break out of the tie and get more comfortable.

I had some help from some of my talented classmates with the post, Jannat Miranda and Laura Muscat. Click the link and go to their blogs.

Blue Train

For me, Navy has been a go to color since summer.  Now that Fall is here I still catch myself in navy.  Of course it can be green or purple by tomorrow, but I've been sticking to this uniform for a couple of weeks now with modifications of course. Just being #EverydaySheek.

Sometimes a solid white polo or button down is all you need to get the job done.

 Oh Yea! I live down the street from the Ponte Vecchio now. #Firenze

Once I was off work I got a chance to chill with Unique and Sonny, the talented Jess & James duo for a little while. Well...they ended up kidnapping me, threatened me if I did not post these images, and forced me to eat McDonald's (that tasted like Chinese food).  If you notice I was scared for my life and was not sure what was going to happen to me

Apologies on the delayed posts, but I've been pursuing my passion for fashion. I have been accepted to the Masters Program for Brand Management at Polimoda in Florence, Italy, and I depart for Florence late September. Yup! This Houston Hard Hitter is taking his talents to Italy now!

 Went to grab some dinner with my Mom and came across this construction site that we could have some fun with...

 The sleeveless shirt is a #DIY (Do It Yourself) result, when I saw this Dior shirt in a vintage store, but it was short in the sleeves for me. I took the sleeves off and re-sowed the frayed ends to keep it neat still. This shirt has not let me down in this heat and is more versatile than you can imagine.

Game. Set. Match.

Being a Hooper at heart, athletic wear has always been important in my life.  So, when tailored sweatpants hit the streets I got a pair, and did nothing but wear them everyday. Lately I've been caught in my old habits and these drop crotch one's were a must!

Out The Game

In this last edition of "Out The Game" I must shed light on a icon's style that does not reflect the contributions he's made to the game of basketball. I am speaking of, "His Airness," The G.O.A.T,  Michael Jordan.  There was a time he was considered stylish by creating a professional look to the sport when he began wearing suits to games and other players followed, but now, that style pass has been revoked! As a fashion enthusiast and a true Michael Jordan fan since birth, I feel like its my responsibility to show what I am speaking about...

He has a thing for distress denim, and oversize blazers.  No sagging for MJ just chest, high pants... lol...

What in the hell are these pants??

I've been laughing hysterically while working on this post, I hope your during the same. If you want to take more style ques from MJ you should make your way here.

Standing Ovation

I met my friend Luke when I got off work yesterday at his office, and we had a quick impromptu photoshoot. For me the rainy day was unexpected so I was dressed inappropriate for it, which is a pet peeve of mine.

 Tipp: Always match blue with brown
 I switched out the shoelaces with neon ones from J.Crew crewcuts.  This small detail can bring a more vibrant feel to the shoes and look. I've recently started switching out shoelaces in other shoes to do the same.

While everyone has been going the color blocking route, while in the process going overboard at times, the monochromatic look has gained my attention for its uniform palette.  Playing with different textures and fabrics of the same color is a different challenge than focusing on color schemes.

Hustler In The Hallway

I been out the game for the past week with an eye infection, it actually looked similar to the eye that's behind me. So it was fitting, and a coincidence, that one of the main subjects of the mural was an eye.
