I had the most wonderful happenstance of running into the fabulous Craig Arend, who is the brains and lens behind Altamira: Models Off Duty, one of the most inspirational and addicting street style blogs ever.

It was an impromptu shoot to say the least when I stumbled upon him in the middle of a shoot with another AMAZING street style supereye: Guerre, but Craig is really wonderful to shoot with, he's lively, thoughtful and tooootally keeps things fun. We had actually shot together when we first met back in 2009 during the Weardrobe bloggers' Conference (omg memories!!) and since then it's always been fun when we run into each other at events and such. He's a cool dude.

But anywhos, the outfit came about for a boy's day out with my best friend Dan who I've known since Buffalo, he took the last two shots under Craig's. We spent the afternoon discussing our first week back in college and shopping around a bit. The pants are an H&M throwback, but I love the tie detail and color! I decided to throw something together that was a tinge inspired by 60's androgyny. And you know me and my rings, I loves me a great piece that looks like it's straight out of a ritual or family member's jewelry box.
