Outfit: Men’s Double Breasted Blazer & Double Monk Shoes
Went home like a good boy last Sunday and spent Mother’s Day with my momz. Naturally I had to pull my act together and try to look like an accomplished adult so she wouldn’t judge my life choices (jayy kayyy), so I dressed it up in a double breasted blazer and my fancy shmancy dubmonks. Also, is it ironic that I wore my “Dad” jeans on Mother’s Day?
Anywho, I’m glad I got dressed up because as it turns out my sister made rezzies at some country club that we’re not even members of (yes, we bougie like that). But after a few hundred mimosas I decided it would be cute to put my sister’s dog in my new murse. He hated it (OBVIOUSLY) but isn’t he just the cutest? Anything for CUTE! And speaking of cute, here’s a pic of me and my MOM having the most AMAZING Mother’s Day ever! Deep down she knows I’m her favorite child so I’m just waiting for her to say it out loud. But in the mean time, most of what she says to me sounds strangely similar to this: Shit Filipino Moms Say

The Strap Ankle Boot
There’s an underlying elegance in leather strap footwear: monks for instance, be they single or double convey a characteristic poise enhanced by the belt-like fastening and metal buckles. As in so many other pieces, those small details make a whole lot of difference…
While looking for a more classic boot, reminiscent of the Chelsea and versatile enough to sport with jeans, chinos or slacks, I came across this version from Carlos Santos. Perfect height sitting at the ankle, beautiful shade of brown leather, Goodyear welted soles and featuring a strap fastening that instantly caught my eye. The sleek silhouette is balanced by the metal buckles and leather straps making them appropriate for dressing up or down according to your mood or preference. The perfect allrounder that was missing from my footwear collection, these will be on heavy rotation to achieve that perfect worn in effect.
