Well hello, old friend!  I hope you had a great week.

Unfortunately I am not spending the next few days frolicking around the deserts of California at Coachella but hey- there’s always next year!

Last weekend I had two of my best friends from high school come visit me in Chicago.  I always have fun showing my New York friends my adopted home- Chi-town!

We did all things touristy during their visit like seeing The Bean, eating a Chicago hot dog and seeing a show at Second City.  Lets just say there’s a reason we locals don’t do these things on a daily basis… 😉

The weather was less than ideal but at this point with Chicago, I wouldn’t expect anything less…

This week something I really wanted to focus on was consistency.  I read a great quote that I haven’t been able to get out of my mind that I wanted to share-

“You can’t just be talented.  You also have to be necessary to people, by working hard and well and bringing more than your bones and skin to a project.  Don’t just show up.  Transform your work, yourself and everybody around you.  Be needed.  Be interesting.  Something no one else can be… and consistently.” -Katharine Hepburn

I have so many goals I want to accomplish within this year and it all starts with working hard and staying consistent.

One thing that sets people apart in life is ambition and between my job as a stylist at Trunk Club and this blog, consistency is key.

One way I want to start stepping up my game is by dressing the part more.  At the office, our dress code is “smart casual” which is how I came to this outfit!  🙂

There is something so classic about a well fitted suit and by throwing on a great sneaker like these Vince slides, you elevate the outfit and give it a modern edge.  I bought this Topman suit a few years ago and I have learned the options with it are endless.  I can either dress it up with a button down and tie or keep it casual with a classic crew neck tee like I did here!  This is THE perfect Spring look for work during the day and then happy hour after with friends!  🙂

 

Ciao for now,

Dean
