Print. Logo. Bold :  From internet symbols, racing stripes and literally off your public transportation. The typical floral pattern is always a safe bet but why not live a little and get graphic!

Let’s Be Tasteful With Our Camo: Personally, not one of my favorites. Ever. For some reason, this trend just doesn’t stay where it belongs. Do you plan on wearing camo to the office anytime soon? Consider camo  a bright color. Now contrast with solid pieces. An accessory such as a bag, iPad case, etc. gives you a OOTD that is right on the money!

Wear Denim Together. Wash Separate: Wearing different color denim washes together creates an effortlessly cool look. Stick to washes two shades different from each other or you can always turn it up by wearing colored denim. Have fun with this. Why not try acid-wash, white,black or even super light jeans.

The Key Is In The Details: It’s the simple little details on a shirt matter! Variations in fabric allow people to actually notice your own unique style. A paisley elbow and a speckled Chambray are clear indicators of bold and boring. No matter how expensive a piece of clothing is, a guy really only feels confident in his own clothes. Style is about noticing things that others don’t. That’s why it’s important to develop an eye for things you like that your less fashionable friends might not notice.

Brave. Bold. Choose Carefully: I’m a firm believer that at least one thing in your closet should scream when you open the closet door! So why can’t it be your jacket. Camo is an option, plaid or another pattern that pleases your eye. Stay safe with Olive, Tan, Grey and Black. Remember if it’s too bold, you might have to wait to recycle that look!

Jog In Style: Well, I’ll pretend to jog. Balenciaga, Maison Martin Margiela and many more have in common?  They have in common the ability to make sneakers beyond belief. Gone are the days of having a pair of ugly shoes to go with your “Casual Run Around & Do Errands” outfit. Futuristic. Sleek. Bold.

Blacker Than Black: Black is one of the easiest colors to actually build your daily look from. It’s why it’s the uniform of choice among the fashionable. You’ll always look dressed up, super chic without trying. Tones aren’t the issue here, the problem your going to run into is fabric. Cottons and linens are great for easy to move in, breathable materials and looser fit tees and buttons up help you from becoming a sticky mess.

Just a few ways to reinvent your style for the spring. Be a bit daring. Everyone will tell you how dashing you look.

Usually That Someone Turns Out To Be Me……

“I got to know you now, we may never meet again.I got to know you now and then.” is the chorus to “Know You Now” by the late Amy Winehouse. It’s a short simple song that is very light and leaves the meaning behind the lyrics for interpretation. I tend to over analyze things to the point that it begins to sound foolish.

The meaning I was able to take from this particular song to use in my life: Get to know someone first. You can always sleep with someone later on. Build a meaningful relationship, because meaningful relationships aren’t built on one night stands. However, it’s not always the case when it comes to me.

Usually that someone turns out to be me, unfortunately, I’m a little boy crazy. We all have our vices and flaws, there could be many things worse than being boy crazy, am I right? Sometimes I wonder, did this boy crazy obsession come about because I missed out in high school or college. Nope. Kind of just means I’m a slut….I’m kidding Mom!!!

It’s weird I don’t really ever want to be attached to someone with a title unless I know it’s real. At the same time, I never felt like I would be that twenty-something year old not in a relationship. I haven’t had a relationship in just about 3 years. That isn’t a long time by any means but it’s still pretty long when you factor things in that you can do as a couple.

I like the freedom that being single allows me in a sense. I’m free to date whomever and learn what I like and don’t like. I dislike the behaviors that come from it, such as sleeping around. Romp, Shag, Fuck, Sex, Diddle, etc the list could go on forever, things that I prefer to do in a relationship.

I’m not promiscuous, I believe in monogamy. However, I found myself adapting into these behaviors that were almost downright man whoreish. If I was out on a date, it seemed like nobody really wanted to get to know me, they just wanted to get to know me enough to get in my pants. Not to say I’m not to blame for that as well, because I mean I make decisions but at least wait a few dates. I believe there are other factors that are involved with this as well.

I take a look at most of my friends and they are couples. Couples that have been together since either high school or college. I think also the stand offish attitude of the typical Bostonians definitely doesn’t factor in well. Everyone is trying to either out do the other or just ignore you for other reasons(that’s another blog)!

Weird thing,this guy wanted to date and he asked me if I wanted to be in a monogamous relationship but allow for various sexual partners to be introduced!!!!(Entirely different blog in the making but it’s something to think about)

But back to the real story at hand, being a man whore is far from cute. It’s not rewarding at all, I personally was feeling lost. I wasn’t able to see with clarity on what I actually wanted from a person anymore. One thing I will state: I do not regret any of my experiences. Life is too short to regret anything. Everything in life is a lesson and what you’re willing to comprehend from that lesson is up to you. I try to learn the lesson and better myself. It isn’t always a perfect science, it takes time. Be patient.

It’s really beautiful when a relationship just has simplicity around all the flaws involved
