Jaclyn and I had the pleasure of shooting with her brother Jeff, who’s a very talented photographer, last weekend. I wanted the shoot to have a fun, comfortable vibe and what better way to translate that than with vintage tees and Nikes?

Regardless of the crazy outfits I may sometimes put together on the site, don’t be fooled, I’m still a t-shirt, denim and sneakers guy at heart. It’s been the most consistent outfit for me for years because of the versatility and comfort. Graphic tees, especially vintage ones like this old Honda t-shirt from Urban’s vintage program are pretty much the best thing ever when it comes to casual comfort. Hell, you could even wear this under a blazer with some nice jeans and boots and be set to go out!

Anyone who’s followed the blog for any decent amount of time or knows me personally understands that sneakers are my longest and truest passion. The way that I can choose my sneakers based on my mood and display it to the world is so fun for me. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made myself and others late to be someplace because of being fully dressed except for shoes, standing in front of the closet debating which pair to choose for WAY too long. I even turned my girlfriend into a Nike lover (which is one of my proudest accomplishments, that’s the level of obsession she deals with).

Pairing these three essentials with my slightly chunky watch from MVMT and some vintage sunglasses, I’m set to feel great and have fun, which is really what it’s all about.

Anyways, I picked up this book by Charles Duhigg, The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business after a recommendation from my uncle and have been obsessed. It delves into the science behind habit formation in our brains and how we psychologically shift into neutral when doing things that have become habitual. It’s helping me decipher my positive habits from the negative ones and how to hold onto what works and let go of what doesn’t. I’d highly recommend checking it out if you’re someone who feels like you want to have more control over your every day life.

Also, Jaclyn suggested I start a book club sort of setup through the blog. I’d love to hear some thoughts or gage an interest level. Basically put, I’d start each month or two with a book, potentially based on your suggestions, we’d all read it and I’d write up a little review that people could then comment on and interact with. I dunno, it’s a work in progress, let me know your thoughts!

What are some of your favorite vintage items? Should we do a book club? Would love to hear from you!

Stay happy, my friends!
