Something Simple


Hat: Adidas // Shirt: American Apparel // Jeans: Levi's // Shoes: Converse // Backpack: Uri Minkoff

Have you ever reached a point in your life where (sometimes) simplicity is the one thing you want most? That's essentially where I am right now - simplicity is the one thing I want (and need) most. I'm tired of over-complications. I'm tired of making things way more difficult on myself than they need to be. I can't deal with another day of complicated relationships, mixed signals, getting caught in pointless drama, or the like. I've got my own shit to deal with. From here on out, all I want to do after I wake up is choose my #ootd [Outfit of the Day], go to work, hit the gym, rinse, and repeat. How much simpler can it get?


Simplicity applies to the way I dress, as well. If you backtrack some time and look at the way I used to dress, like HERE and HERE, you'll notice some major changes. For instance, I'm not wearing a suit in today's post and I'm also wearing a snapback (something I would have never done before). And that's OK. Personal style is all about evolution and change. I don't have to be the same overly complicated, socially voracious guy that I used to be. Change is perfectly fine and I'm a living example. I don't have the same wants, needs, or desires as I used to - and the same can be said of my style.

To keep things simple, I've strolled out of the house in literally the most generic (or as we like to call it in fashion, classic) look consisting of jeans, a t-shirt, and some Converse. Threw on my favorite go-to hat, my only pair of sunglasses, and was good to go. Everything about this outfit was easy, including putting these tight pants on - thank you Levi's for the extra stretch. The best parts? A) I don't have to worry about my hair, and B) My shirt is black and can hide the stains from the five cups of coffee I'm definitely going to have. 

Simple can be good and it can go a long way. Even if you can't get away with wearing jeans and a t-shirt to work, try something that isn't as drastic, like not doing your hair in the morning. My advice, just run with whatever reasonable idea pops into your head. You'd be surprised at how cathartic simplifying your life can be. And remember guys, when in doubt... pajamas are your friend and always pick C(onverse).
