All summer long, I had my mind set on one piece for fall/winter:  A single-breasted camel topcoat.

It's such a staple piece for any man's wardrobe, and being someone who leans much more toward brown tones than black, this coat goes with just about everything in my closet. Oh, and I plan on exercising its versatility-- stay tuned for 3 Ways to Wear a Camel Coat. For now, I've thrown my coat over a super simple weekend outfit and it elevates the entire look. How do you like styling your camel coat? You do have a camel coat, right?

Who knew that I would embrace my childhood ankle wearing socks? I've been trying to find excuses to do so every day. I spent about 15 minutes deciding whether or not to wear these suckers. Polka dot socks on, take a gander in the mirror, walk away, socks off. Striped socks on, take another gander in mirror, then repeat 2 more times. Talk about obsession. So exhausting, but SO worth it. The take away is, don't shy away from spicing up your shoe game with these fun-filled socks. BTW...you totally can wear socks with open-toe shoes. Do it...I dare you.

This past weekend we had the pleasure of going back to where it all began for us... LUBBOCK, TEXAS. We got to watch our Red Raiders beat Kansas State, had fish tacos and margaritas at Chimy's, and even got to walk around campus in some of our favorite duds.

While it's pretty well documented that we met at the mall in Lubbock, the building behind us (the Student Union Building) was home to many fond memories early on in our relationship. Many hours were spent here with some of our closest friends, fraternity brothers, and sorority sisters between classes (and sometimes DURING classes-- whoops!). This campus means so much to us, so we try to make it a point to walk around every time we visit. 'Til next time, Lubbock!

After over two years of blogging, I've decided to wear something I haven't worn since probably high school-- a three-button jacket. Now, the steadfast rule for buttoning a three-button jacket according to just about everyone is: SOMETIMES (top button), ALWAYS (middle button), NEVER (bottom button). However, I'm not particularly a fan of the high stance of the third/top button, so with all due respect to the purists, I prescribe to a NEVER, ALWAYS, NEVER configuration. It's also worth noting that this jacket has lapel roll which essentially covers any evidence of a third button.

That aside, I'm really excited to break out the fall fabrics/patterns. I've doubled-down here with these speckled pants and wool glen plaid blazer.
