Polo Madness! My Weekend OOTD

Greetings my fellow bow ties!

This weekend I had tons (and I mean TONS) of activities planned! These activities included… well… absolutely… uh… NOTHING! Hahaha! And that is totally OK.  I did manage to pick my lazy derriere up and do some grocery shopping (in between watching Dirty Teacher on Lifetime)… and this is what I wore!  Well, not all of the polos, but it did get me thinking about how useful, easy and fashionable polo tees truly are.  Instead of jeans, opt for some cargos and replace the graphic t-shirt with a bright polo tee.  To finish off the look, I added some interest with some kicks that sparkle…and who doesn’t want that?!?  These looks are simple and nothing is too extravagant or showy… perfect for a toned down weekend look that is still polished.  And let’s be honest, at least this look beats sandals with socks and basketball shorts …right? 😉

The 2015 Golden Globe Awards: Best Dressed Men (and some Women!)

Well…the 2015 Golden Globe Awards have finally come to an end and what a show it…was? Okay.  I have a little confession to make. For the first time in my entire life, I actually watched the whole freakin’ show and I must tell you that… that was not the most brilliant decision. B-O-R-I-N-G!  Furthermore,  even though I freely and willingly admit to watching the entire thing, I still can’t tell you anything remotely important. Who won Mr. James?  I have no clue. Which movies were nominated? Again, not a clue.  Have you seen any of the movies or television shows nominated? Nope! Well, not unless they’re on Netflix already (haven’t seen those either).

Anyway, I can tell you one thing, Hollywood types are long-winded! I mean WOW. Get off the stage already!  I have an idea. Instead of an acceptance speech, maybe just a photo with your award…ya know…smiling and not talking. It’ll be fantastic. Everybody will know that you won and the public can now see what is really important here… your outfit!  Speaking of fashion, there was quite a bit of it to be seen! In between a hilarious Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, a very uncomfortable and lingering Mr. Cosby joke, a lot of chatter about social justice, and actors sweating bullets (literally)…there was fashion!  Red was a trend, silver/white was a trend and then there was Mrs. and Mr. Amal Almuddin. Well, if you ever had an inkling as to whether or not you were good enough for Mr. Clooney….let me tell you… apparently, you are not! Seriously, this woman is like a super hero or something. The only thing she hasn’t done yet is to find the Holy Grail (give her a week). Now, I must say that I have yet to jump on the Clooney/Alamuddin bandwagon, but any woman who can make white gloves happen in 2015? I may have to hitch a ride. And let’s be honest, I love that the act of Mrs. Clooney attending this little rinky dink show known as the Golden Globes was truthfully like a step down for her. She seems fun. We’re BFFs (in my head).

Back to the clothes! I’m sure there will be plenty of press given to the fabulously dressed ladies (I’m actually including a few with this post), but the emphasis here is on the fashionable men! To sum up the men’s fashion at the Golden Globes…there was… a lot of suits! But, these dapper men stood out amongst the sea of tuxedoes due to the tailoring, fit and color choices! Below are my picks for best dressed men (and some women) at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards. Enjoy!
