Menswear Inspired Casual Workwear

Menswear Trend, Top Atlanta Blogger, Atlanta Personal Stylist

There’s just something swagalicious about a stylish man. I mean what’s not to like about a man who takes pride in how he looks. It’s eye catching to see a guy who is fashion forward and not afraid to show it.  So for today’s look I’m totally borrowing a little style inspo from the boys, again.

Typically when I’m putting a look together, I start with one item I want to wear, then build the rest of the look from that item.  What inspired this look and what happens to be the centerpiece is the necktie.  It just pulls the whole ensemble together. 

About four years ago I thrifted this blue blazer and it may or may not be too small.  Either way I’m going to continue to wear it until I burst out of it like I’m the incredible hulk. Finding such a blazer with the perfect cut for me ain’t easy (on account that I have short arms).  I’m also digging the vintage vibes this blazer gives off. 

In keeping with the theme of the look, I paired this tri-colored striped tie with a light blue/white striped button down shirt.  Wanting to maintain the lady factor to this look, I decided on a pair of fitted distressed jeans (I could have also gone with a solid or printed pair of trousers) to show off my slim-thick curves and thangs. 

To complete the look, after playing around with what shoes to wear I ended up going with these burgundy oxfords I scored many moons ago.  And last but not least, I finally got a chance to wear this vintage messenger bag (although the only thing in it for this pic was my phone and mine and Kaylin’s keys – Ha).

Now go forth and dress amazingly!!!

Why Is The Hustle Sold Separtly? Why?

Today is one of those days when I just don't feel like adulting. As soon as my alarm went off this morning I wanted to throw the phone across the room (but I didn't since it's the new Samsung Galaxy S8+ that I just got last week and I l-o-v-e it!!!) I only wanted to lay in my bed and do absolutely nothing. Have you ever felt this way before?

I think it has something to do with me feeling confined. I mean 5 days a week I get up and travel to a job that I'm not thrill about. I don't even fit in with cooperate culture. It's kinda bad too, because the majority of the work day I'm struggling to keep my mind from constantly drifting to ways I can grow my personal styling client base or providing valuable consistent blog content.  Which brings me to today's blog question... Why is the hustle sold separately?

I realize that nothing in life worth having comes easy and I know that struggle comes along with the territory.  I just wish that I knew somebody who knew somebody who knew somebody who could magically make things all better.  But if that happened I probably wouldn't be as grateful for the reward as I would be by putting in the werk.

Dreaming requires minimal effort.  A dream without a plan is just a wish.  So what's it going to take to turn this dream into a reality?  Grab your note book for this next part.  Here's the hustle game plan.   

1. Set goals
     Don't allow your mind to be filled with empty dreams.  Set realist goals.  And if you're feeling greasy,  set unrealistic goals.  Let your mind run free with endless possibilities.  

2. Plan 
     Get an actionable plan together.  What is it going to take to turn a thought into real life?  

3. Speak it out loud
     There's power in the tongue.  Even if you don't see it, say it!

4. If you fail
     Get back up and keep trying.  You've only lost is you stop trying.

5. Push thru
     Refuse to settle!

I hope you've read something that will encourage you to keep going.  As much as I wanted to hid from the world today, I got out my bed and pulled myself together and forced myself to take Dory's (from Finding Nemo) advice and just keep going.

Mens Inspo + Blue Bucket Bag

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta style blogger, JustFab bucket bag, menswear, mens inspo

Well guys it's a brand new week and I'm glad about it.  A chance to start that thing you've been putting off.  And you know what, you got this!

Speaking of got this, I got this really cute bucket back, 'Ronald' from JustFab to review last week; and I must say I really like the bag.  It's perfect for after work errand duties.  There's always that one day of the work week where I just can't seem to pull it together.  That day is usually Monday or Wednesday.  On those blah days, my outfit option goes something like today's look.  The only bright side to this look is this vibrant indigo bucket bag that allows me to move about without the hassle of trying to hold a bag in one hand.  There's even ample space for my wallet, small lipstick pouch, phone and phone charger because the battery life of mobile phones these days are laughable.  The only downside is that it doesn't come in yellow.  To get your bucket bag go here.  You'll love it, I promise.  

Entire look -- Thrifted // Shoes -- Don't remember, old // Bag, Ronald -- JustFab
