Stripes & The Backless Shoe Trend

Pastel stripes and mules are two prevalent trends in the summer of 2017 that will definitely reemerge this spring.

However, what I love most about this outfit is how fun, casual and dressy it is. Overall it can go from day to night easily and I think that what I enjoy most about it. If I were to change the shorts to some nice tailored pants I would be go-to-go for a night out.

However, in this photo, it was clearly daytime so it worked for its purpose while I was out and about with friends.

I randomly stopped to take this one photo, and it turned out great.



Wild Thoughts In a Bodega

One of the best things about living in New York is the convenience of a bodega. They’re literally on every corner and wait for it… When it’s time to cash out, there are no taxes.

To be honest, I am guilty of making late-night bodega runs, to grab junk food; when I’m having a night in or when I’m going out. The picture above is a prime example of just that. Going out, but needing to grab something quick to eat or drink from the store.

Honestly, I wish a bodega wasn’t so convenient.

It’s funny because they’re literally the meaning of a convenience store, in comparison to one in the south they’re 10x better.


Style Travel

Chilling at Dream

Upon coming to New York the entire process was all a dream and going to The Penthouse at Dream Downtown was definitely ironic. Whilst connecting with old friends, and making new ones. The memories captured are all so deserving of a post on

Although I moved to the city in June of 2017 and this post may be dated, whos to say it’s not still relevant. Considering I still feel a certain way that I’m in my dream city.



Going with the theme: IV July

It has officially been a month since I have moved to New York, and I fallen completely in love. The idea of always finding an new restaurant, event or place to explore is refreshing. Since being here I have already experienced my first holiday and the celebration was fun to say the least. Knowing that I would be going to different events throughout this years fourth of July weekend, I wanted to wear outfits that were comfortable, thematic to the holiday.

This outfit in particular was my favorite from the weekend. At first glance one would possibly think it is a romper but it’s not.

I went through three different outfit changes to come to this outfit. Originally going with a blue shirt, white jean and the shoes you see here. Then changing the white jeans for a grey pair. Fortunately enough I came across these blue shorts and decided to give them a go. And I immediately loved the outfit choice.

The shoes I love in particular because I have always wanted a pair. And when I saw them while window shopping in SoHo I immediately ran into Steve Madden to make the purchase. It also didn’t hurt that their was a sale going on as well.

PS: Im all for a thematic outfit, although I suggest not over doing it. However, to each their own!

Stay Rad.


Steps In The City

Shirt: Pacsun
Pants: Zara
Shoes: Adidas


Ive been in New York for almost a month, and so far I have been making a smooth transition. Exploring the city, meeting new people and trekking borough to borough has been fun and advantageous. What I like most about the city is that the weather, I love jeans, and wearing layers. With that being said, New York weather is ideal for my wardrobe.

I recently purchased a pair of velcro Adidas that I have been eyeing for sometime now, and it was my luck to run across them while walking in Manhattan. They will definitely be a common piece in my wardrobe to give it a flare of fun.

PS: I love Zara jeans!

Stay Rad.

I don’t know if it’s still winter or spring.

Parka Jacket: The Gap
Pants: The Gap
Shirt: Puma

Global warming is real, this has been one interesting winter in North Carolina. It has not been excruciatingly cold this time around and I’m okay with that. However, pneumonia is a real thing and although N.C. has experienced some good weather I’ve still been battling back in forth with what has been appropriate to wear

Although, today was an extremely nice day and I though I would bare some skin. Well just a little bit that is.

Let me know what you think of this outfit.

PS: The jacket was merely an accessory. It was 80 degrees outside today.

Stay Rad.


Let’s Sk8-Hi

Vans have made a comeback although they never really left either.

Outfit Details
Sweater: Urban Outfitters
Pants: The Gap
Shoes: Vans

Needless to say I’ve seen a style of shoes that I use to wear religiously come back into the mainstream of streetwear. I seriously considered going out and buying a new edition until I realized I had a ‘vintage’ pair hiding some place in my parents house.

Reminiscing takes me back to the old days when I wanted to be a ‘skater’ when I thought the shoes would give me the ability to do so. I think its safe to say I failed at that millisecond dream.

After finding these shoes misplaced away in my closet I decided to give them ago again, they may become a regular in my rotation of outfits this year.

What do you think?

Stay Rad.
