Coastal Blues

Photography taken by Kara Nixon

    Short sleeves and shorts are summer essentials, especially in California. Even if you are not near the beach, staying cool in our summer weather is a requirement for everyday style. #ExpressMen has got us covered with a variety of summer options from casual to sophisticated attire. What I love about their selection is that I am still able to stay true to my Southern California vibe.
    When choosing the color scheme for this outfit I wanted to accentuate the main color of the featured pieces from Express. Building off the freshness of white khaki utility short, I chose a shirt with fine navy lines to break up the color block of white. To highlight the blues, I threw on a Express' fitted 1MX short sleeve in this rich hue. My last two blue accents were a blue analog rubber strap watch, and chambray slip on sneakers. EXPRESSed from head to toe in west coastal blues.

Green for Go


Photography taken by Kara Nixon

    Lately, our California summer has been gloomy. Our mornings are super cloudy, and by the end of the day summer appears. A great way to handle "fall weather in the summer" is to choose earthy tones when putting your outfit together. I read an article from Urban Outfitter's and they agreed that green signifies newness. Along with neutrals colors, greens are an everlasting color throughout the seasons, it all depends on the correct choice of warmth or coolness.
    I wanted to showcase the options of greens and how to use them in your outfit. You can make a statement by choosing bold pieces like this satin bomber jacket, and layer a soft tonal print underneath. Camo prints are great for the spring/summer. I chose a chino pant in olive to unify the greens and neutrals together. Then to top off the look I chose warm earthy leather accents.

Meshy Weekend


    Second weekend. Second outfit! Coachella's two consecutive weekends are always poppin.' It all comes down to preference when choosing which weekend to live it up. It is known that the second weekend is more chill from all the hype of the first and less crowded. Everyone wears bright colors and dress more freely when it comes to this festival. I've decided to show how to wear all black, yet breathable attire for the dessert.
    To keep cool, I've chose this dope mesh cut-off shirt I found for a $2 at Goodwill. I threw on a pair of black chino shorts from H&M and rolled them up to prevent awkward tan lines. Ha! The final black finish to this look was my Redwing boots. The boots had a detail of brown, so I decided to accentuate the rest of the look with my brown fedora and leather accessories.

Attire:
Wide Brim Fedora- Mall Cart
Mesh Cut-Off- Goodwill
Black Shorts- H&M
Redwing Boots- Nordstrom Rack

Retail:
Fedora- Brixton prices vary

Coachella Chillin'


    In April, everybody who is anybody heads to the California desert. IT'S COACHELLA WEEKEND! The annual music festival is a popular scene that lasts two back-to-back weekends. I happened to have shot this look in Indio on the way to Salvation Mountain. In honor of Coachella Weekend 1, I decided to post this festival outfit. I was suppose to be attending this year with my cousins from Texas, but plans have changed. There is always next year!
    Located in the Palm Springs area, filled with hip hotels and exclusive parties, it gets typically HOT! (figuratively & literally) This outfit is appropriate for pool parties or simply walking around the music festival. Necessities: sunglasses, the least amount of clothing, friends, and don't forget the iconic Coachella arm candy ;)

Marc Jacobs Sunglasses- Nordstrom
Swim Shorts- Topman Sale
Multicolored Bracelets- H&M
Birkenstock Sandals- not pictured

Retail:
