What I’m Wearing: Valas Multiple Pockets Backpack, All Saints Rolla Shirt, Acne Studios Denim, Vince Boots

Finally the air is getting warmer, the plants are getting greener (thanks to all the rain we got in LA this winter) and the people are coming out of their caves. It’s feeling a lot like Spring even though its not quite here just yet. For some reason green reminds me of spring and I’ve been sporting my olive Valas backpack a ton these last weeks.

I’m all about a bag that can fit it all and plus some. As a creative and freelancer I don’t have a desk so having a bag to carry all my things in (i.e.: laptop, camera, hard drive etc.) so this multi pocket number is perfect for me. And yeah I’m a fashion blogger so of course its gotta be fashion forward. Valas is a Los Angeles brand and brands from LA definitely have a special place in my heart also they are creating some amazing and innovative things in the mens space so if you haven’t heard make sure to give them a look.

I paired the bag with a polka dot shirt I picked up the other day, I’m not always a guy huge on pattern but this shirt gave me major YSL vibes and paired with a pair of black skinnies I think its a perfect casual but interesting fit.

I’m that person that is always looking for inspiration and when I heard about Neautra’s VDL House here in LA I had to pay it a visit. Art has always been a huge interest of mine and I find art is so many things but especially in design and architecture.

It’s insane to me that this home that I consider to be “modern” was originally actually built in 1932. The home was built with every nook and cranny thought out, everything has a function and everything has a place. It was amazing to me that also a lot of the homes furnishings were Neautra’s designs as well. If in LA and your into design and architecture this spot is a must see.

I’m not normally one to think about the future as I really like to live in the moment and am a strong believer that things have a way of just coming together but as I was in New York City this last week I’ve been thinking about if I could ever leave Los Angeles. There are so many perks to NYC like bagel sandwiches  and good Italian food, and then in a few I’m off to somewhere tropical and their you have relaxation, less hustle and the feeling of escape and right now that sounds amazing.

But after reflecting I realized that maybe one day I won’t live in Los Angeles but I don’t think I could ever not live in a major city. As relaxed and mellow as I can be I do think I get this high from the hustle and I don’t know there is something special about the smell of pollution in the air. Where can you see yourself in 20 years?

EASY EFFORTLESS HAIR STYLE WITH OLD SPICE

With the new year comes new ideas. This year, I really want to start making it regular to not only share my fashion posts, but to also share more about my lifestyle and products I use on the daily. As most of you guys know, I change my hair quite a bit and love a fresh new style, but something that comes with me from hairstyle to hairstyle is my Old Spice Pomade.

I’m all about this particular pomade because it really is the perfect pre-styler. It provides a medium hold and matte finish that allows me to still run my fingers though my hair (which is seriously important to me, who doesn’t like hands run through their hair?) The pomade adds the right amount of volume and keeps my hair looking fresh with a perfect hold all day. I can go through the day not worrying about my hair.

I’m definitely not someone who spends too much time in the bathroom. I like an easy morning routine especially because I’m not a morning person. Pomade allows me to run my hands through my towel-dried hair, style it in and mold my hair which means more time doing what I love: sleeping. The product also smells great in a totally manly way – the scent is the perfect confidence booster! Old Spice has been in the game for decades and is a brand I continue to rely on to keep my hair game strong and my morning routine effortless.
