Food, walks and outfit

I’ve been going through a tough time lately and the negativity got the best of me a day ago. I’m looking at what has happened and trying to grow and move on. To help me try to take my mind of things, I took went for a late lunch with my mom at a restaurant called Josephine St. Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of my meal, but know that the pollo verde plate is pretty good. It is a must!

After lunch we took a stroll around the Pearl and the riverwalk to walk off the food. We ended up sitting down in the shade, so we could enjoy the breeze and scenery. I taught my mom how to use my camera, so the photos of me are credited to her.

The weather has been pretty hot, so I’ve stayed away from button ups, but I made an exception with this shirt cause it had holes. I paired my distressed Forever 21 shirt with some black distressed Zara jeans, Vans and a cap. It’s not the most creative outfit, but it went together well. Sometimes simple is better.

I’m going to continue trying to enjoy the little things in life, like food, walks and blogging about outfits.

Enjoying the little things

Lately, I’ve been feeling kind of bummed out. Part of it is me stressing over situations I make up in my head, and the other part is real things going on in my life. Yes, I know what a downer way to start a post. I swear this isn’t a depressing blog posts.

We all go through tough times. It’s really just a part of life, and we all have ways of coping. My way is getting out of my apartment and trying to enjoy the surroundings that San Antonio has to offer.

Now that I’ve armed myself with my new Canon EOS Rebel T7i, I’ve been using it on my outings around town. It’s become very therapeutic. Above our pictures from my visit last night to the Pearl, a brewery turned retail/restaurants/residents/office space hub nearby.

It’s a sweet spot to hangout with family and friends. And is a hot spot for having photo shoots. Planning on doing one their soon!

Anyways, what ways do you clear your mind?

Raglan Tees and Dad Jeans

I’ve recently been obsessed with 90s inspired clothing, so it was no surprise that this taped raglan tee from Urban Outfitters caught my attention. I fell in love with the tan color and the four stripes going down from the collar to the sleeve. To keep the 90s vibe going, I had to pair this shirt with my pair of dad jeans from UO and white leather Converse.

I am here for the nostalgia. Are you digging the 90s revival?

Shorts for the Summer

The Texas heat has come full force this summer. Some time out and about during the weekend requires an outfit that won’t have you wanting to ditch plans.

My go-to outfit for a hot summer day is all planned around shorts. There was a time that I just couldn’t get with the shorts program. It came down to two reason: I didn’t like my legs, which at this point I’m not self conscious of and the fact that I could never find shorts in a fit I liked.

Men’s fast fashion has come a long way. I feel the it has more ways to go, but the options are much better. I found these mustard colored woven till shorts at Forever 21. I love the fact they are fitted and have some stretch to them. Those were the two things I was looking for in a pair of shorts. I just can’t get behind wearing shorts that go below the knee or that are loose fitting.

I checked online and these shorts are still available and in different colors. I put these shorts on my recommended list. Be sure to get a pair if you’re looking to add more shorts to your summer wardrobe.

Stripes and Dad Jeans for Summer

It’s been a hot, hot summer in Texas. The 100+ degree weather can make it hard to dress cute and not want rip off your clothes halfway through your day. Fortunately, I took a few photos before calling it a day on a sunny Saturday.

I’ve been obsessed with stripes for quite sometime. When I came upon a multicolored striped shirt from Urban Outfitters, I had to buy it. The orange, red, yellow and blue stripe combination are perfect for the summer.

I paired my stripes shirt with another current obsession of mine, dad jeans. Yes, I said dad jeans. I’ve stayed loyal to skinny jeans for more than 8 years, but I tried on a pair of dad fit jeans at Urban, and I liked the fit. They aren’t baggy or loose fitting, but the fit isn’t a tight as skinny jeans. I recommend them if you’re looking to change up the fit of your jeans.

I’ve become a gay man obsessed with stripes and dad jeans for the summer. What have been your style obsessions for the summer?

Sunday Athleisure Wear

It’s been a hot couple of days in south Texas, and this weekend has been no exception. When it comes to dressing for hotter days, I try to dress comfortably without sacrificing style. The rise of athleisure wear has made it possible!

To keep it cool on a Sunday, I kept it light with colors and fabric. I started my look with a pair of bleached denim joggers from Forever 21. Yes, I said denim, but the fabric is thin. I paired my joggers with a light tan PacSun scallop tee.

To top off my Sunday athleisure wear look, I added my Yeezy 500 blush sneakers. I was hesitant about copping these new Yeezys, but when they arrived at my door, I fell in love with them. I still need more pieces in my wardrobe to wear them with, but I recommend them!

It’s important to start comfortable during a hot day, but remember, you never have to sacrifice fashion!
