Vivacious : American Stripes + Buttoned Vest


This week has gone by so fast that I’m having a hard time believing that it’s Friday before the long weekend! I have lots of fun activities planned for this long weekend because my friend from is Australia in town and I will be bringing her around my city’s best spots. I always love having visitors and it’s even more exciting to me when they’re from far away.


I’m wearing:

Frank & Oak Del Mar Shirt (c/o)Mexx Buttoned Vest │ Old Navy Chambray Shorts (similar here) │ Sorel Derby Shoes │ Asos Holdall │ Banana Republic Wayfarers │ Tissot PRC-200 Watch │ Leather Braided Belt (from Florence)


Something pretty awesome also happened to me yesterday – I got featured on! trashness is a leading men’s fashion blogs and I often visit their site to find dapper inspirations. My last look on this blog was posted on their site yesterday and I felt so honoured. Sure hope this is one of many more opportunities for me to connect and work with other bloggers!


When it comes to shopping for shirts, I am actually quite picky. Not only do I make sure that their fit is slim, but I also pay much attention to their lengths. For work shirts, they can be a bit longer because that makes them easier to tuck in. For casual shirts, I prefer them shorter so I can wear them untucked. Occasionally I find shirts that are the perfect length, and I end up wearing these shirts the most because I can wear them tucked or untucked. Shirts from Frank & Oak are precisely like this, and that is why I am a fan of their products. Their shirts fit me perfectly in every corner and they also come in some very bold patterns that I like.
