Up In The Clouds

Let me start off by saying Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!

   If you have kept up with my posts, you know I like to explore. I love being on rooftops, they give you such a different view, literally and figuratively. It’s not often you see the city from a birds eye view. Most rooftops have a dark, earth tone feel, which is why I picked this spot for this outfit. Today I wore a simple “summer” outfit. I wore an off-white denim jacket (because somehow it is still cold in the city in June…) with a white tee underneath. A denim jacket is perfect for spring/summer because even when you take it off, you still have a clean fit. Its not too heavy but is still good enough to keep you warm when the weather hits a low point. For the rest of the outfit, I wore black jeans and black boots to give a contrast to the denim jacket.

What do you guys think of this outfit? Let me know in the comments below!

Dillon Hughes x FRNDY LMRN

For those of you who keep up with me on Instagram or Twitter, you’ve seen previews of this post and the famous #FrendysBapeCouchCountdown picture with one of my mentors, Frendy Lemorin.  Frendy is one of the most humble, inspiring and talented people I know. Trust me when I say that you should keep up with him, follow him on his Instagram or Twitter.

In the article he wrote, he says “One of the stand out individuals featured is my lil’ bro Dillon Hughes whom I refer to as Beizus (an inside joke made from his similar traits to Justin Bieber combined with his immense love for Kanye West).  I have known the budding creative for about 3 years now and his growth is truly commendable.”

To read the full article Frendy did on me, click here.

For this shoot, I went on my all white, god flow style. I wore the FRNDY LMRN White 3M Coaches Jacket and layered it with an off-white Alexander Wang tee.  I wore white denim and paired it with white Adidas Stan Smiths. This jacket definitely grabs your attention and is perfect for the summer time on those breezy nights.

In The Field

   I love exploring, especially in NYC. You can go from chilling in the woods to looking over the city from a Wall Street rooftop. There is always something new to see, or an area to travel to.

   I was walking through the end of central park today and ended up in the woods. It was really cool to get away from the city environment for a second, be placed in a different setting and appreciate Mother Nature *praying emoji*. I wore a vintage camo jacket, with a white ASOS tee underneath. I put on a light wash pair of jeans from Acne Studios and tan suede Saint Laurent boots. (Can you imagine walking through the woods in SLP?!...). The boots complemented the camo jacket/color palate and tied the whole look together. To finish the outfit off, I added some gold accessories to give some detail.

Down below are some alternatives; what did you guys think of this summer look? Let me know in the comments below!
