I can't believe it's already September. It feels like just yesterday I was running against the wind on the sand in Long Beach Island of October 2015. Where has the time gone? This was nearly two years ago and already so much has changed for me. I grew a business, got a dog, bought a ton of clothes, then gave away a ton of clothes because I bought most of those items out of impulse. It's just funny to think about how much change has happened since I wore this outfit last.
That day started off with me filling up my windshield washing fluid because it was completely depleted. I remember my friend Elle had to show me where it even went because I nearly poured it into one of the engine valves. I'm not exactly the handiest guy to walk the face of the earth!
That October day was so beautiful. The weather was warmer than it had been and the sun was peeking through the heavy clouds. We took a ride down to LBI and set up a blanket on the sand. As soon as we stepped foot on the beach we realized that it was SOO WINDY. I don't think we stayed more than 20 minutes because my shirt was blowing up over my head!
When I took this photo I was working with Target to promote their fall/winter menswear line. The t-shirt and flannel were both Mossimo brand and I will never forget how soft and luxurious they felt. It was such a perfectly combined look for a crisp fall day. I am a huge fan of flannel but I can't stand when it's itchy and really heavy... this shirt was perfect because it was thick enough to block out the chill from the constant gusts of wind, yet it felt light to the touch and didn't weigh me down one bit!
I am a really big fan of Cotton On brand. They have a retail location near me and I always leave with an empty wallet. They have pants starting at $39.00 that are some of the highest quality chinos I have ever found with the best fit. These that I am pictured wearing I still have and can't wait to break out and start wearing again. They look like a denim pant but are made from a fleece material that feels identical to wearing sweatpants. How can you not love them?
All I can say is that fall is upon us and I look forward to more days like this one coming real soon!
