Bright Lights, Bigger City \ #Menswear

It has been on my "to try" list forever now to create a #ootd post dedicated to menswear! And so ta-dah, here we are! This is totally me dipping in the water and getting my feet wet with this aspect of blogging. I always knew that I had an eye for menswear. For my very first post I of course wanted to go LA casual. But to some people, casual can mean a t-shirt and jeans. On the #thelovelylook casual deserves a little more pizazz; especially in LA. So I started with the flannel and worked my way from there. Instead of just having Donny wear the flannel by itself, I wanted him to open it up and layer it with a gray shirt for some contrast. I chose his black pants because I thought they would help the outfit stand out. Of course he could've worn some regular tennis shoes but I opted for these dressier shoes to, again, make the outfit more "dressy" and city-like. FYI, I took these pictures myself (with the help of my friend Maddie of course) and it was definitely a learning experience to be the one behind the lens instead of in front. Practice makes perfect though, and with that there will be plenty more #menswear posts coming to the blog!
