Let me start off this post by saying The Bloom Tour in Austin was amazing! Leland, Kim Petras and Troye Sivan put on great performances. I also got to meet Kim Petras before the show. She was so nice and down to earth. Thank you to Kim for taking the time to meet up with me and a few other fans.💖
Obviously, I purchased some merch at the show. I got a Kim Petras tee, which I rocked during the concert and a Troye Sivan tee, I wore the day after.
I paired my Bloom Tour tee with tan corduroy dad fit pants from Urban Outfitters and my new Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runners for a dad chic look.
The concert tees are made for dad chic realness and so are the Wave Runners, my recent Yeezy cop!
Are you loving the dad chic look? Do you plan to go to The Bloom Tour?
Last night was a much needed night of dancing and listening to good music with my boo. I was feeling my outfit and needed to take a couple of pictures. My pastel striped button up was a recent purchase from Urban Outfitters, and it was my first outing with it. I paired my new shirt with some light washed Zara skinny jeans and my Adidas Yeezy 500 blush shoes.
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?
Last week, I had the opportunity to feature an editorial collaboration with Canali on my blog. It was a great opportunity with one of the great luxury menswear brands. If you have read it, check it out!
Due to my collaboration, I had to stall my usual monthly look book to this week, so here it is. For the month of August, my looks were all about plaid. With fall just around the corner, my looks were a nod to the cooler weather to come.
For my first look, I was off to an evening at the museum. I needed an outfit that was relaxed, so I went for a layered look. I paired my PacSun heathered beige long line tee with my Urban Outfitters plaid shirt. Since it was hot that day, it only made sense to have my plaid shirt act as a layer, instead of buttoning it up. Next, I added my stylish Zara distressed jeans and my New Balance shoes, which allowed me comfort for walking without sacrificing style, because New Balance are the epitome of style comfort.
My second look of the month mixed streetwear with loafers. As high fashion slowly becomes intertwined with street fashion, we’ve seen items like dress shoes and distressed denim become paired. For my look, I paired my Forever 21 plaid shirt and Zara distressed denim with some Sam Edelman loafers. I really felt the loafers paired well with my streetwear infused style. I had made an effort to stay away from loafers, but the tan suede is what sold me!
We are a couple of days away from the official day of fall, but I’m slowly beginning to feel the weather changing. I’m excited for the cooler temperatures, and I can’t wait to share my September looks with you!
This has been a month of changes. As I begin to learn and grow as an adult in my personal and professional life, I’ve realized that my happiness is important. This blog is one of the many things that make me happy. My love for fashion is the reason I created Guy Love Fashion. Thank you to everyone who take the time to read my blog.
To help get me out of my rut, my boyfriend and I took a trip to the San Antonio Museum of Art on Tuesday for their free admission night. The museum is one of my favorite places to go, because it allows me an opportunity to escape reality for a while, and get lost in the art that is displayed.
A casual, relaxing night at the museum called for a casual, relaxing outfit. I wore a scallop short-sleeve tee from PacSun perfect for the summer heat and layered it with my favorite Urban Outfitters plaid shirt. Yes, I know this plaid shirt was featured in my throwback post from two weeks ago, but it truly is a staple in my wardrobe. The light shades are perfect for summer!
I paired the light shades with my favorite dark torn jeans from Zara and my New Balance shoes to match my shirts. My torn jeans gave my legs the opportunity to breathe in the humid evenings, while my shoes allowed me comfort for walking in the museum and outside in the courtyard.
I enjoyed my time at the museum. It allowed me to unwind and ease my mind from some of the things on my mind. If you live in San Antonio and haven’t visited SAMA, I suggest you make a visit.
This hot month was all about going against the norm. I was dressed in black and wore an anorak. Yeah, I’ve never been one for practical fashion. However, toward the end of the month the hot weather got the best of me, and I had to go for a look that wouldn’t have me dying from the heat.
My first featured look was all about my DKNY white anorak. This buy from one of my favorite brands was perfect for summer! The perforated sleeves were an obvious stand out for me, giving it a much more fashion forward look compared to others I had seen.
My second look featured my favorite color and a cool thrift find from Buffalo Exchange. Black isn’t a practical color to wear during the hot days, but it’s just perfect to wear. And pairing my look with a new suede button up made for an outfit that’s probably best left for summer nights.
My final look for the month highlighted after work attire perfect for the summer heat. I paired my Topman tee and Urban Outfitters sunflower printed short sleeve button up with some joggers for a perfect outfit that’s ready for hanging out with friends after work. Oh, let’s not forget my cool but comfy New Balance shoes!
With July coming to a close, I’m hoping that August isn’t painfully hot. I can’t wait to start sharing my August looks with you!
After a long day at work, nothing feels better than taking of the work wear and slipping into something more comfortable. Of course, if you have plans to meet some friends for after work plans you might need to forget the sweats and wear something that won’t have people questioning your fashion sense.
With the days getting hotter, you might consider summer apparel that borders on leisure wear without making you seem like your ready for bed. For the hotter days, I’ll out switch my signature torn jeans look for jogger or shorts. In this case, I wore some acid wash jogger from Forever 21 for some subway and walking at the park with my boyfriend.
It became acceptable to integrate joggers into your casual wear a few years ago, and it’s a fashion choice I pick to stay cool. Add a (Topman) tee and layer it with a (Urban Outfitters) short sleeve button up shirt and you have the perfect summer look!
Think my outfit is too casual for after work plans? Switch out denim looking joggers for some khaki or navy joggers. Pair them with darker tone tees and button up shirts for after work attire that’s ready for dinner and/or drinks with friends.
