By now I think it's pretty obvious that one of my favorite things to do in the city is to stroll around SoHo. Why you might ask? 

Well for starters I find most of my inspiration there. I love the architecture of the buildings. I love seeing so many beautiful faces in the crowd; especially when I find other bloggers/models that are also shooting there. I also love looking at all of the new clothing collections through the windows of some of my favorite stores. Additionally, I don't think I'll be kicking my addiction to caffeine anytime soon so SoHo is perfect for my coffee cravings. Places like Happy Bones not only provides great coffee but offers a beautiful aesthetic. For this post I partnered up with ASOS to show off some of my favorite items from their newest collection. And Guess what? I got to do this while strolling around my beloved SoHo. As many of you already know I love stripes. I'm obsessed, truly! So once I spotted an ensemble that had stripes I just had to do something about it. 

For these two looks I really wanted to go all the way with my current obsession #ALLABOUTTHEVINTAGEVIBES. 

I'm all about mixing together a super classic piece with a modern touch. In the first look: I'm wearing a super classic light brown trouser with an oversized striped shirt featuring a revere collar. For the shoes I put on a tan pair of Loafers with fringe details. I mean, it doesn't get any more classic than that! For the second look I changed it up a bit but still kept it within the classic vibe. I'm wearing the same striped shirt as I did in the first look with a pair of wide ballon trousers in black and a pair of Sk8-Hi Vans (also in black). Most recently I have taken a liken to high waisted pants and the look that they give off. While wearing them I feel like I'm apart of the 40's (aka my favorite Era). This is what I felt with the second look! 

I hope you guys dig these two looks and are inspired to find your own super classic / modern selves with your next shopping experience. Let me know what you think of these styles and if you'd like to see more. 

Best, Martin!
