Casual Fall Fashion with Rockport and Zappos

Back in Black

Sponsored by Zappos The last few weeks have been total whirlwinds but in the best ways possible. I’m traveling quite a bit here lately, and I couldn’t be happier about it! Especially now that the weather is officially cooling down, and I’m able to enjoy the great outdoors once again. It’s no secret that this time of year is my favorite, so it’s no surprise that I’ve been doing a bit of shopping. Zappos has quickly become a favorite of mine lately and for good reason.  Their shipping is insanely fast, as in I order something, and it’s typically out by myself by the next day. Making it the perfect place to shop before heading out on a trip or even getting it delivered to my hotel. Anything to save on having to actual pack, right? Not to mention they’ve got free shipping AND a 365-day return policy. Meaning even with a busy schedule like mine returning pieces that don’t go as planned is a breeze.  My latest haul from Zappos included these Marshall Chukka boots from Rockport. And I’ve got a feeling they’ll be on heavy repeat in the months to come. They’re perfect for dressing up any look,…

Fall Staples

Sponsored by Zappos. Y’all, it’s officially fall! Also known as my favorite time of the year. Even though the weather may not feel like it at the moment. But as the weather continues to cool down the first the things I reach for in my closet are jeans and flannels. It’s essentially my tried and true fall outfit of choice. Because as much as I love shorts I’m more than happy to break out my AG Adriano Goldschmied jeans once the weather officially cools down. Recently I stocked up on some new gear from Zappos just in time in the cooler weather that’s to come, including these new jeans. And it’s safe to say that I’m looking forward to tackling the coming season in these guys. They’re the perfect wash to wear with just about everything from flannels, like today, to something a little dressier. And this new t-shirt from AG Adriano Goldschmied will be the perfect layering piece for under all my favorite shirts this fall. Now what are you waiting for? Make your way over to to start shopping and get ready for the cooler weather that’s headed your way soon.

Game Day Entertaining

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by McAlisters Deli + The Blog Societies, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Well, I’ve been on the road quite a bit lately, and it’s actually about to get a lot more crazy. I’ll be traveling to Tennessee, Virginia, and the Dominican Republic over the next couple of weeks. Travel is definitely a perk of the job, but it can be draining. At least my trip to the Dominican is going to be an actual vacation. My first vacation in years. Color me excited! But when I am home, which is usually the weekends, I spend as much time with my friends as possible. Meaning that this time of year we’re either watching a game at someone’s place or a favorite bar. For those days that we actually make it down to the field my new apartment is the perfect rendezvous point as I’m the closest to campus. We all know that I love to cook. But with my limited time at home lately the last thing I want to be doing is cooking. Enter McAlisters. They’re the perfect solution for quick and easy game day entertaining without sacrificing any…

Fall Casual Weekend Out with Reebok Classic Harmon Sneakers from DSW


Disclosure: This post is brought to you by DSW, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Thanks for continuing to support the brands that keep this blog afloat.  I know, I know. You’re not used to seeing my face around these parts much lately. It’s safe to say I took a major hiatus from outfit posts for a while while I dealt with some life changes, but I’m back! Back and better than ever, actually. Crazy how life can turn you completely on your head, and then set you up for every success you can imagine. Moral of the story? Don’t complain about the bad hand you’re dealt. Make the most of it. LIfe’s what you make of it after all.  And no better way to jump back into sharing what I’m wearing than with my latest obsession: white sneakers. They’re perfect for literally every occasion, and IMO elevate any look. The newest pair I’m in love with are these Reebok Classic Harmon Sneakers from DSW.  It’s safe to say that they have not left my feet since I brought them home last week. Why? Well for starters, they go with everything in my closet. Especially since I wear mostly…

Generation Tux

Exploring new territory today here on the blog with my friends at Generation Tux, an online tux rental service. If y’all follow me on Instagram there have been a few snaps here and there of me in their pieces because they were kind enough to dress me for Derby!  HUGE sigh of relief for me because as we all know I don’t have that many suits. And I’ll be the first to say that the suits I do have don’t fit that great. These guys from Generation Tux? Fit like a glove right out of the box. For a guy that’s 6’4″ and 200 lbs with long legs and arms, that’s no short feat. The best part? With their new eTailor service they’re able to measure users for a tuxedo just by answering a few questions. Like height, weight, shoe size, jean size, etc. I’ll admit, I was nervous at first. Things usually never fit me right out the box, but all three of suits I rented were spot on. I even asked for the hem to be higher to show off some ankle, and they nailed it on all 3 pants. So in other words, consider me a convert. …
