After a three month drought, I made my way to church. My reason for going on such a drought were more than making it out the door because I had the desire to go, but the problem was finding one that fit my schedule as well as being culturally diverse. This morning prior to getting out of bed, I found one that fit everything I was looking for and the rest came in to play, as far as getting ready. Just throwing it out there, but I’m one that needs at least two hours to get ready for church because I am very picky with what I choose to wear.  I also need that time because I love to share pictures like such, and send them to my family, plus share on Lookbook fashion website.

From top to bottom, the fedora was the last minute icing on the cake, which tends to be my option with many of my dress styles. What ever fedora I wear depends on my outfit, but lately I have been wearing this black a lot because black goes with everything, right? Picking out the shirt because tricky because I have many in my closet, but I wanted to get out of my comfort zone to pick something that normally I do not wear. I absolutely did not think that I would wear this button down shirt by Aeropostale, why? What frustrated me with it is the left breast pocket which I rarely see men wear with a tie! That led to me doing research on that one outfit shared on Google with a male wearing one. All it would have took is finding one to urge me to wear it with a tie, which I did not find. That look is perfect with denim jeans, yet, I did not want to wear denim jeans. The light bulb went off in my head and I brought out this six button vest by New York & Company, which covered the left breast pocket up on the button down. The rest of the outfit came together because as I said before black goes with anything, so how could I fail wearing a black tie. As for the dress pants, I went with these Hennes & Mauritz pants because they matched well with the button down. In the near future I would love to pair the button down with denim, or either replacing these dress pants with black dress pants. What do you think?
