Hey Guys!!
I know I’ve been a little off the blog, so much has been going on but now I’m back!
I decided to blog about this incredible bomber jacket from Hugo Boss I bought a few weeks ago during my trip to Vegas. I’ve posted a few snaps and pics about it on my IG and I’ve seen some of you share the same opinion as I about it, It’s amazing!
When styling this bomber it is the best option to do an all black look or in my case switch the black top for a white one to match the stripes of the jacket. I’m a sucker for white tees, more than black but that’s just me. Either way it would look bomb!

MY FITNESS STORY WITH GRANA

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

Hey Guys!!
It’s snowing so hard in New York but luckily we had this amazing warm temperature yesterday. It went up to 60 degrees and it felt so good to go outdoors without a coat and layers, therefore it was the perfect time to hit the park and workout with my new gear from Grana’s new activewear collection, Grana Move.
For me, working out has always been a huge part of my life. I used to be so chubby when I was very young until one day I got sick of my stomach, contracted a virus and lost nearly 20 pounds being hospitalized. It was such a tough time as I became lactose and fat intolerant, my childhood was totally ruined in terms of what I could eat or what I wanted to eat. It was very painful for a few years, but then I found myself swimming and practicing weight lifting.
By involving myself in fitness at a young age of about 16, I started enjoying workouts  better than sports. I’ve never been a sports guy, maybe chess and swimming, that’s about it! Going through puberty I realized I was very skinny as a result of my clean eating, then some curves appeared, the genes came through. I developed a slim-curvy body for a young man, and I hated it. I used to cover my butt with long polo-shirts so that nobody could see that I had a bubble butt or that I had a tiny waist (funny heh?). Now, I know many would kill for that, but back then it just took time and self-esteem to understand my body-type and what type of workout clothes made me look how I wanted to.
I took this time to tell you guys some of my story into fitness and how I used to body-shame myself for not accepting a different body-type than the ones my classmates had. Now, I love these legs and this tiny waist. C’mon, it makes my back look way bigger than it actual is!
So, I’ve partnered up with Grana to show you different workouts that I regularly do indoors and outdoors to keep myself motivated and fit in my favorite styles from Move. I’m still working on the abs so don’t judge that much! Some of these can be practical, like squats with dumbbells, lunges, sprinting, even hiking that I do to keep myself in shape. As for what I’m wearing, the quality of this new collection is just incredible, the fabric is super tech-fit and soft. Finally, I got these 4.5″ shorts that I craved for leg days, I mean, who doesn’t want to see their legs while they workout?

The fit of the crewnecks and tank tops is very smart, it adheres to your body perfectly and manages moisture during your workouts perfectly, no sweaty tops people!
The shorts are my favorites! I picked the 4.5″ as I told you before, but they also have 6″4 for those who like basketball or wearing shorts that cover up more. These are made with a flexible technology, ideal for any type of sport or workout. Also, the color pallette is  very simple, they come in black, grey and blue. Black is my favorite color as it manages sweat and dirt better than any other. And, it just looks fashionable & bold.
I’ll leave some of the links where you can shop your favorites and check out the new Move collection.
Remember to always #setyourpace !

___________________
I hope you guys enjoy all these looks! I tried my best to organize myself with anticipation for these. I just tried to wear pieces that represent me, my style or personality. I would never wear something “too much” just to be featured anywhere or stand out. It’s important to be yourself. I don’t like to classify myself in one specific style as I’ve always said. By dressing in four different looks totally opposite from each other I still remained true to my style, my preferences but demonstrated that anyone can wear a suit one day, the next day be chic, another day more sporty. It’s all about what you feel like wearing one day, not what you should wear.

#NEVER BASIC WITH OLD NAVY

Processed with VSCO with n1 preset

Hey Guys!
I’m back with some HOW TO: Series. This time I’ve partnered up with Old Navy to style their #neverbasic crew-neck tees! I’ve picked up my favorites that match my own style and in this blog post I tell you all about how you can style these tees and make yourself look everything but basic!
I’ve always worn tees my entire life. Below every single outfit there is a white tee rocking it from behind, at least that is my belief! What’s the problem with showing more of your tees? They compliment your look! Right now it’s freezing-cold in New York, but I’ve managed to show you two looks that will surely catch your attention.
First tip! I’m crazy about neutrals. The color that I’m obsessed with is grey right now. I found this grey tee on Oldnavy.com and I surely knew what to style it with. Let’s do a matching top and bottom look with different tone of the same color. It’s a bit monochromatic, but then I’ll add this green cardigan. According to PANTONE Greenery is the color for 2017, so why not add a pop of green to your tee? Wear it wide open and the monochromatic distraction will focus the attention to the tee and it will make it look chic and a stand-out for sure.

Second tip! Indoor look. We’re going to style an indoor look for those in warmer temperatures and for those in colder ones, how to remain stylish after you take all that layering off inside. I’m still doing a grey bottom look but this time let’s use a blue striped tee, something more patterned. When you have a tee that has more to it, let’s stay graphics, patterns, stripes, you don’t need much to style it with. It can be just as chic as any other look. Here with the slim-fit chinos I styled it and paired it with clear sunglasses to make it more my style.

If you need to recreate a look a bit more formal, let’s say for a dinner or an event? Perfect! I keep the same look and just add a black or neutral blazer on top, it still lets the tee catch all the attention but changes your look drastically to a more formal attire.

When styling tees it’s all about ideas, accessorizing and knowing what pair of great pants to style them with. At the end, if you check it’s a simple tee but it’s never looking basic. Your tees are standing out and it’s a more relaxed fit, you’re super comfortable and it’s an affordable look for anyone.

BROOKLYN IN MY SUAVS

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

Hey Guys!
Today I went for a walk in Brooklyn and I took my new SUAVS shoes with me. This brand is originated in Austin, Texas. The procedure to pick the materials that compound their shoes is very meticulous, they take care of every aspect and quality to provide a soft but stylish experience for the on-the-go men and women.
I just received my two pairs and I decided what a better way to try them on than to exploring new grounds. I barely go to Brooklyn and since the weather was great I decided I wanted to take a comfy walk.
In this post I’m styling two different styles of SUAVS. The black pair which is a more breathable style, super comfortable as well and perfect for a laid-back sunday or a long walk and the grey pair is the Men’s Barton Winter which has its own lined faux fur inside to create a soft but warm feel, ideal for the cold temperatures like New York. Walking in both styles just feels like I’m home. The quality of the shoes resembles within the touch of your feet.
Both pairs go perfectly with a monochromatic look or minimalist style. I decided to try them on with an all-grey look and also matching the black with my scarf to draw some attention to them. My suavs come in full-size but they stretch really well, I’m an 8 1/2 so the 9 worked perfectly for me. Since they’re low I recommend sizing it up to one more inch.
Catch your pair of SUAVS from their own website www.suavshoes.com
