For someone who generally dislikes pattern, I find myself drawn to darker floral patterns quite often. Am I wearing any here? Nope, not a one. But still all the same I’m drawn to these dark florals, enjoying the mix of clean lines and natural baroque details.


The trousers are a vintage pair I found at a thrift store for a song, and I’ve paired them here with my favorite pair of slip on shoes. Who says dressy has to be uncomfortable? There’s an element of grandpa style here that I’m decidely into, since it’s all about that relaxed sense of dressing. A nicer shirt that’s a bit rumpled, a pair of trousers that are relaxed, and a super easy pair of shoes. It’s a bit dolce vita and I’m totally into it.




The shirt is from Rag & Bone, and I love the color blocking. A baseball t shirt is always flattering on a guy because it makes the shoulders look broader and here the effect is the same.



Crisp white pops against a heather grey, and the look is quite modern. I haven’t had time to tailor the back of the shirt yet, but all the same I’m ok with that relaxed, oversized fit.  Let’s call it Lanvin-living and leave it alone, shall we?
