It’s time to start over and begin a new chapter for From Shoes to Specs. I have been contemplating for a while now on what exactly I want to achieve from my blog and what I want it to become in the coming years. I feel as if I have lost focus on my original goal, which was to use it as my creative outlet as well as a style guide to inspire others. People have always asked me “why did you start blogging” and my response has always been “I don’t know I just wanted to showcase my style.” But now that answer has changed. I started blogging to show that I’m not afraid of wearing what other men are afraid of wearing whether it be bold colors, prints, or the fit or cut of my clothing. I want to wear things that others are afraid of wearing just because society says we can’t or shouldn't. I want to push the boundaries of men’s fashion in my own way and not be afraid of what others think is right or wrong. To be honest I could care less to what people think because I know exactly what I’m doing and how I want to portray myself. And to this, my blog is going to be more fashion based and less about my life. I'm going to start posting more outfits, inspiration,  links to where to purchase the same style, and much much more. But enough with my new vision, lets get to the outfit. As we all know (at least we should know) that studs have made a comeback again this season. I have been eyeing this studded sweater from Zara for a while, but unfortunately Arizona has yet to build one and I am too cheap to pay for shipping. So I decided to DIY a shirt to recreate the one from Zara. Be sure to look around for studs because mine were unbelievably over priced from etsy, so I recommend checking out Ebay or studsandspikes. I've been keeping my outfits minimal lately but adding subtle details and embellishments like the studs for example. I didn't accessorize as much as I would if I didn't have the studs just because it would have been too distracting. Black on black is my go to for lazy days or days that I just don't want to get ready on. It's easy to just wear all black and still look put together as well as slimming (which I don't need more of) but its something that's sleek and effortless for those lazy days.
PS DIY as much as you can it's fun, easy, and rewarding once you finish. Plus you save money as well!
