I have no idea what I want my style be. You'd think that at my age I'd have it figured out, but I don't and these days my concept of how to dress is completely fluid. If I had the lettuce and lived somewhere other than CT (the land of blue jeans paired with a North Face fleece) then I'd rep like Ryan Gosling did in Crazy, Stupid, Love.:
...But I'm poor and stuck where I am for the time being, so when I go out I just rock a pair of size 30/30 dark navy Old Navy boot cut jeans (always at the waist), which show the ass off nice, with a size small tee and a pair of these:
I'm 5'9", 150 LBS with a slender frame and an athletic build, so that combo is relatively flattering on me. My T-shirts are either a solid color or band tees. V-neck or crew. For the colder weather I have some collared shirts, slim fitting, striped or solid, a few thin sweaters (I'm partial to Kenneth Cole and Claiborne) and a few plaid shirts. I actually have a decent selection of outerwear... I have a couple of leather jackets, one brown and the other a black-brown with a slightly worn look to it which I use when I take the motorcycle out. I also have a black wool winter jacket (Kenneth Cole) and a couple of track jackets. Oh, and I have two blazers - a black and a brown one, both velvet. As far as accessories, I don't wear jewelry but I do have a nifty Fossil watch that winds itself and which was a gift from my grandmother after my Gramps passed (it was his). I'll wear that on occasion. I also have a plain black leather belt and a plain brown one, which I coordinate with whatever shoes I'm wearing. Usually it's my Sambas, but I do have a pair of matte black leather Rockport casual dress shoes as well as a pair of brown leather Bostonians. I have one plain black skinny tie and rarely ever a reason to wear it.
Hmm. Now that I think about it, my wardrobe seems to be cold weather centric. The rest is just a hodgepodge. In the summer I'm usually a hot mess in the style department and tend to just give up and wear what's comfortable. Most of my attempts at a decent warm weather look have failed, so, as a result, it wouldn't be uncommon to catch me in August in shorts, a tee and flops. And shades. Right now I've got a crappy pair of black plastic sunglasses that I bought from Target for $20. I'd like to replace them at some point with a pair of Mosley Tribes Pilots like E from Entourage wore, if I can find them.

...because without the bitter, baby, the sweet ain't as sweet.
