You know it all starts with the shoes.  You know it’s gotta’ be Zerogrands for now.  LoL  Rockin’ my American Apparel thermal underneath to create a nice, warm base layer!  It also gives the Button Up a less refined look.  Very Manish.  (Z $278) (T $30)

Not rockin’ any of my Shawl sweaters today so I’m using my scarf to keep my esophacus…esofucus…esoff…MY THROAT, warm.  Throw the Blazer over the top & you create a nice little piece of much needed refinement to an otherwise laid back Fit.  You know my Mossimo Blazer from Target well by now.  $70

Well I still haven’t found me glasses.  I think my mom may have stole them, because she hates em’.  LoL  But anywho, it’s the Monday before CHRISTmas and I’m going CHRISTmas caroling!  ….  Ok, I’m not going CHRISTmas caroling, but I am going shopping, same difference, just not quite as peaceful.  I figure I’d add a bit of pazazz to my fit today so I’m rockin’ a tweed suit.  This is definitely a suit for the modern man, the young business professional, the young creative if you will.  The Pants are from the GAP ($40) and the Blazer is from Target by Mossimo ($60). See, it doesn’t take a lot of money to look like money 😉  The 2 pieces aren’t even an exact match, but once again, REMEMBER:  “It’s not about MATCHING it’s about BALANCE!”  It’s all about fooling the eye.  Underneath I’m rockin’ an American Apparel Henley ($30) and my Merona Zip-Up Cardigan ($25) from Target.  And of course you know the Zerogrands are doing the driving.  WELP!  That does it for me.  Time to go deck the MALLS with balls of folly, fa la la la la, luh la la laaaaa…. #FIN.

Two words: MR. ROGERS!  LoL  That’s how I feel with this nice cozy Cardigan today.  And why not, it’s a perfect day for such a garment.  I still haven’t found my glasses though, so bare with me.

This Gray GAP Cardigan is perfect for layering!  I got it to give me an option to my Black Cardigan.  I’ve already fallen in love with this one!  I’m telling ya’ll!  I’m feeling the Gray for some reason.  $10 (STEAL: Actual is $50)

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

IMG_00002763

Happy Monday fellas!  With one downside, I can’t find my freakin’ glasses!  SMH I think I left em’ at my parent’s house this weekend, but nevertheless the show must go on!  Today is a casual day because I will be participating in athletic activities, but hey, with my new found Style, every day is pretty much casual.

IMG_00002750

IMG_00002751

First we have my Hybrid Zerogrands of course.  From the boardroom to the gym, you’re set if you own any shoe from Cole Haan’s amazing new line! $278

IMG_00002752

IMG_00002753

Can’t get your casual on without a clean pair of Joggers.  My Banana Republic Joggers will do just fine.  Plus Joggers keep you warm when it’s cool.  $40 (Sale)

IMG_00002755

IMG_20141208_153456

IMG_00002756

The Cardigan is a must have, but the Zip-Up Cardigan, is too!  My Merona ZU Cardigan will do.  Much easier to quickly layer a zipper than dealing with all the buttons & what not.  You also get the Heroic Collar.  $25


IMG_00002757

IMG_20141208_154050

And finally, here’s where the magic happens.  Just add a Blazer, you know it’s gonna be my Mossimo Blazer, and the whole look, looks like you tried.  LoL  REMEMBER:  Just throw on some tailored outerwear over anything and it immediately snaps your Fit into shape! $70

IMG_00002759Alright fellas, try not to CHILL…to hard 😉  #Fin.

 

#JPSKILLZStyleTip: Layering Lesson #5

IMG_00002695

Feelin’ SEALLY’ today because of the rain.  So I’m going to dress accordingly.  I have named this Fit “SEAL!”  As in Navy Seal!  I love it because it looks like I just got home from a long voyage!  Now, what did Seals/Navy men make famous as far as fashion goes?  That’s right!  The Pea Coat!  Well I’ve come up with a look that isn’t quite as warm, but definitely pulls off the same look.

IMG_00002721

IMG_00002720

IMG_00002719

H20 & Seals are synonymous…no pun intended.  So I definitely have to ground this Fit with my Black, WATERPROOF Cole Haan Lunargrand Boots! $278

IMG_00002716

IMG_00002718

IMG_20141204_161617

Of course my GAP Moto Jeans by En Noir made the cut.  They have that industrial, blue collar feel to them that’s necessary for a Seal!  I think I’m going to give my Black BR Jeans away?  Hmmmm… $80

Now, for an old favorite that I RARELY get to wear!  It’s a Calvin Klein Body Shirt, but because of the Navy…once again, no pun intended LoL, it makes it surprisingly hard to match, but I love the shirt.  I suppose that’s why I bought it?  LoL $30

IMG_20141204_160441

Moving on, this is the key to this look.  “THIS” being my Denim GAP Jacket.  When the collar is turned up it has that Pea Coat feel.  Paired with a skully, you invoke the vibe…I like that…”INVOKE THE VIBE!” $40

IMG_00002705

IMG_00002707

IMG_00002708

Now you know I couldn’t pull this off without my MVP!  Oh YES.  My new Mossimo Blazer from Target.  This top Layer is the icing on the cake because of its solid tone & material which is more like a Pea Coat. $60

IMG_00002723

BONUS TIP:

The cool thing about Layering is that you can remove Layers!  A necessary feature especially with the moody weather of Nashville.  Simply remove the Denim from the equation and you got yourself a nice, clean, office look!

IMG_00002703

WELP!  I guess that’ll do pup…that’ll do.  SEMPER FI gentleman!  #FIN.
