Basics

I'm sitting legs crossed at a peruvian style desk drinking seattles Best coffee. Work wont be calling me for another hour or so which gives me time to indulge in small bites of chocolate and style.Recently I came across The basics. Often I shun people who continuously go back to the basics because it is unoriginal, safe, and often a lack of creativity but Olivier Borde has surprised me with his fresh out of water basics.

Number 9 immediately caught my attention and although I noticed how uncomfotable he looked first, my eyes could not depart from the polka dot pockets and the neon pink shirt. Plain but captivating and casual but almost clown-like.

The half overalls in number 13 couldnt have been more brilliant and although the hat looks like it was knitted by a mans grandmother it couldnt have been more perfect for this look

But of all the pictures, Number 18 was the one that made me smile effotlessly. Simple and beautiful, a man stands with confidence in a navy blue casual suit and a pink dress shirt. The sandals were what caught me off guard becuase they really bring this look to a more street/casual/independent look.

Hi Adaam!

Thanks for popping in on my blog and leaving a comment! I really appreciate it:)

Style and chocolate... mmm! Basics are good. I enjoy alternating between days when I keep it sober and simple, and others when I go more accessories and detailing - things that are a bit demanding to carry.
