Layered 

I took the first sign of a cold and chilly day and used it as an excuse to layer,  and I couldn’t have been more happier with the outcome. I know it’s not that cold in certain places just yet, but I wanted to put together a look that could hopefully give you guys  inspiration when that day comes. Let me know what you think of how I layered this look.

Autumn’s Palette 

Here’s how I would style a sweater this fall, if I were going on date or wanted to takes it farther than just a casual look. I love adding ties to my outfits, even when it’s not for an interview or meeting, they just bring that flair and pop of color that I love. Let me know what you think of today’s look.

Game, Set, Match!

With fall finally upon us, I’ll be making the transition into styling the essentials(sweaters, coats, boots, and all that other good stuff). With this look, I wanted to show how you can wear a sweater in a causal, running errands type of way and still stay true to your style. I found this sweater at the goodwill last month and fell in love with the striped sleeves, which incorporated some of my favorite fall colors. Initially, I was going to pair it with some red chinos, but thought I should let the sweater stand out on its own. The Adidas was the icing on the cake and that pop of green in the shoe really went well with the sweater. Stay tuned tomorrow to see how I style a sweater for a more dressier/date night look.

A Collected Review:


The Brady Chukka by Trask 

Comfort - They fit true to size and they also super comfortable. By the end of the day of breaking them in , I almost forgot I had them on, that’s how great they felt on my feet. Plus they’re super lightweight, not heavy on you.

Durability -  It has a skeletal leather lining and leather sock lining. EVA cushioned insole and cushioned latex outsole sourced from sustainably  harvested trees. So this boot was built to last. 

Style - I really love the look of chukka boot. I would pair these chukkas with just about anything. Whether you’re going for a causal or business look, these will definitely compliment your attire and turn heads. The Brady Chukka also comes in a beautiful navy blue color that I own as well. 

Final Words - Investing in a great pair of boots goes along way. Quality and craftsmanship is key when it comes to building something that not only last long, but also makes you look and feel great. Trask did on great job on these chukkas and if you can get you hands on a pair, get them.

Fall officially starts today and I could’t be more excited. I wanted to give you guys a few updates on what you can expect from ACG this season. 

1. Expect to see new style posts next week. I’m hopefully looking to add a 15-30 second video to each style post. I think that would add a nice touch to each post

2. I’m excited to announce I’m working with a DMR Men’s Consignment (Local Thrift Store) Where I’ll be creating a fall/winter 14 look-book showcasing their clothes. 

3. I’ll be starting my Youtube channel. So expect reviews, giveaways, Q & A’s. and a lot more. 

Hope you guys are excited to see what I have in store. 

May Fall bring out the best in you - ACG

Black Ivy 

I teamed up with Bluer Denim to style a pair of their jeans. After a week of wear, I’m super impressed with the quality and feel. The great thing about purchasing jeans from Bluer is that you get to give back. They have plan where you buy a pair,  and give a pair. You have the opportunity to donate a pair of your old jeans to Bluer and they will give them new life, then send them to someone in need. Their plan is to giveaway 1,000 pair of jeans by the end of 2014.
