Can you believe it’s already May? Time has been flying by! Spring is in full-effect and the weather continues to be spectacular. On some days it has felt closer to summer than spring and I am not complaining about it. I have been doing whatever I can to take advantage of these beautiful days, so I met up with my friend Jasmine to enjoy a sunny afternoon. We walked around Bellevue and through Old Bellevue as the sun was going down. Talk about golden hour! There are some amazing areas in the world, but the Greater Seattle Area in the sunshine is truly something to behold.
This day was particularly warm, somewhere near the low 80s. I kept it a little more casual with the heat, wearing a classic white-tee. It’s made by James Perse (found at Nordstrom) and it is as soft as a baby’s bottom. It feels very airy and is perfect for these hotter days. For my pants, I am rocking some J Crew Bowery Pants. I personally love the dark look with a soft green plaid; enough to catch a few eyes, but not be too loud. These are seriously one of my favorite pairs of chinos.
What really makes this outfit, though, are the details. I made sure to incorporate a lot of details with this look just because a white tee is pretty basic. I was looking for a way to liven up the look a bit. First things first, I just got these Rayban Clubmaster’s last week and I am absolutely infatuated with them. With all of the sunshine we have been getting, I wanted to get a pair of polarized lenses. These Clubmaster’s were perfect, giving me the polarized protection I was looking for as well as a vintage, classic look that I love.
The necklaces I am wearing are my Na Hoku Koa Wood Cross Pendant that I have had since graduating high school and my Wing Pendant Necklace from Asos. I love shopping Asos for my accessories. They are reliable and usually near a price point I am comfortable with. I also focused a lot on my wrist game. I love bracelets and beads and am constantly looking for more. Here I have on my Daniel Wellington Dapper Bristol watch and my Kiel James Patrick “The Kraken” Quartermaster bracelet (see hairy arm photo). I love the nautical theme of Kiel James Patrick and the quality is off the charts. The beads I have on the other wrist are from Sprezza Box. If you like a little surprise every month and are looking to up your style, accessories, and grooming I would highly recommend checking them out.
And lastly, I am wearing my Cole Haan Cap Toe Oxfords. These shoes are amazingly comfortable and can class up any outfit. I chose to wear some no-show socks to let my ankles feel the breeze in this weather. With spring upon us and summer getting closer, I have to get some more no-shows to prepare for the heat.
I hope everyone else has been able to get out and enjoy the weather. Summer is right around the corner and I can’t wait for everything it brings.
