Sandals: Target

Inspired straight from the cult classic, “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” I decided to channel my inner Jeff Spicoli with this retro, surf boy look.

Surf boy? Yes, surf boy! I guess you can say I’m holding on to the last few weeks of summer with this Hawaiian shirt, distressed denim jeans, and faux Birkenstock sandals. I picked up the shirt from a thrift store about two years ago for $5. Here’s the crazy thing though: I have never worn this shirt before.

Why? Well, it’s kind of eccentric, and a little oversized. Needless to say, this shirt looks great tucked in the right pair of pants. More specifically, a pair of “Do It Yourself” distressed jeans.

To finish off this look, I went with a pair of faux Birkenstock sandals from Target. Not only are these sandals comfortable, they look great with any outfit.

So, what do you think about this look? Feel free to share with us in the comments section below.

Casual: Festival Attire

Tank: Kooll Girl by KTRB |
Shorts: Ralph Lauren | Sneakers: Reebok |
Socks: H&M | Glasses: Michael Kors

If you are thinking about going to a large music festival like Made in America next week, this post is for you.

Fortunately, we had the chance to catch Regina wearing her latest festival friendly attire. Although we consider this look very stylish, Regina has a different opinion. She considers this her casual, “Go-to” kind of look. Furthermore, Regina had this to say about her outfit, “You usually will catch me with this type of style on my off days when I just kicking in the city doing my thing.”

Needless to say, her outfit consists of a denim shirt, graphic tank, multi-printed shorts, leopard print socks, and fire engine red Reebok sneakers.

In reference to her upper half, the denim shirt serves as a great layering piece for any tee or tank. It’s that versatile item that everyone should own in their closet.

Why? Well, think about it! If you start burning up, the denim shirt can always come off. Simply tie it around your waist, and you have a 90s grunge look.

Additionally, we can’t get enough of Regina’s multi-printed shorts. The flag and camo print were a perfect match. Plus, they look look great worn with her red Reeboks.

In short, we love Regina’s attire! It puts a modern twist on the usual festival appropriate attire.

Be srue to be on the look out for all the “Pre-Labor Day” posts next week.

How Did I Wear…

post_bryce3_080315_01post_bryce3_080315_02post_bryce3_080315_03post_bryce3_080315_04post_bryce3_080315_05Sneakers: Converse | T-Shirt: Forever 21 |
Shorts: American Eagle

How did I wear…Chuck Taylor All-Stars?

As we transition between August and September, I’m looking forward to wearing out my white sneakers for the next couple of weeks.

Why only two weeks? Since Labor Day falls on September 7th, we only have two Mondays until the “No White After Labor Day” rule takes in effect.

With all that being said, I thought today would be a great opportunity to pull out my newly purchased, white Chuck Taylors for some week day fun.

Tip: When wearing white Chuck Taylors, there are only two options available. You can either keep them dirty or clean. For myself, I actually prefer an aged and dirty converse look. Just in case if you hate the dirty look, just throw your shoes in the washer. Once they are done, they are ready for the sidewalk. It’s that easy!

Similar to one of my previous looks, I decided to wear my Converses with a mid-sleeve, contrasted tee and cut-off denim shorts.

If you haven’t noticed, the contrasted sleeve tee is back this season. Most retail stores have them in stock. I actually picked up mine from Forever21 for under $10. A steal, right?

Tip: When purchasing a pair of converses, you may need to go down a size. Fellas remember, these sneakers run a little big. So, don’t feel demasculated if you go down a shoe size. Your foot did not shrink.

To finish off this look, I wore a pair of knee high socks.

Knee high socks? As you already know, I have a thing for retro inspired looks. So, it should come to no surprise that I decided to grab this dated socks from the depths of my father’s dresser.

How much wear and tear do you plan to get out of your Chuck Taylors this season? Feel free to share with us in the comments section below!

P.S. Don’t forget your whisky!

Tank: ASOS

There’s nothing like wearing a pair of boots during the summer, especially if you have a nice pair of shorts or pants to wear them with. Unlike myself, most people are a little apprehensive about wearing boots during the summer. However, I actually find them more comfortable than sandals or loafers.

Why? Well, you don’t have to worry about getting any dirt or scratches on your toes. Boots protect your feet from most foreign objects on the ground. Plus, they are great to wear during a rainy day.

With all that being said, this leads us to this week’s #MensStyleMondays post. Today, I decided to wear a pair of desert boots with an old racer back tank and denim overalls.

How would you define this look Bryce? Honestly, I would say this look is a combination of urban and country style. While the boots are giving us a different take on suburban street style, the overalls add that “Homely” touch to my overall look. I guess you can call me the “Boy Next Store,” with a twist.

Continuing with this theme, I decided to show a little skin with my racer back tank. This shirt was purchased from ASOS for $5 over a year ago, and never miss an opportunity to wear it.

So, what do you think about this look? Feel free to share with us in the comments section below.
