Taking a little hiatus back to Texas. Not because I don’t like Boston, but because the job search gets stressful. Looking forward to spending some quality time with family and relaxing my mind. Plan to read this on the plane. Whether I stay or go, I still want to get to know the Best of Boston.
Another day, another interview./urbancoolstyle 8/5/14
This one was for a part-time position were the dress for the position is more casual because it’s a more labor-intensive job. That’s why I didn’t go all out and wear the suit again. With night and weekend shifts, it seems to be the kind of job with a lot of turnaround, so after a training session it will be a matter of whether I want to do the job or not. And, then, the question becomes do I find a second part-time job, continue to look for a permanent full-time position, or continue working with temp agencies to find placements? All this while not having a place to live yet past the end of August. Time will tell. We’ll see what happens. Will Freddie be able to make his stay in Boston work or will he have to go back to Texas? The long-sleeve collared button-up shirt is cream, the vest brown, tie black, pants tan, socks black (not visible) with brown Sketchers with two maroon stripes on both sides and tan laces that match the pants.
urban cool style 8/1/14: gurb’l (pronounced gerbil) style
geek style + urban style = gurb’l style. Combine your urban style with your geek or geek chic style. Here, I’m wearing a Superman t-shirt. Though superheroes are urban to me, I combined it with red bandanna, jeans, silver rings, watch, and running shoes for a comfortable yet cool look. Take one geek piece whether a t-shirt like I did or another piece (could be a tie, socks, jewelry, etc.) and then combine that with your urban pieces. I’d use the geek piece as the focal point then use the urban pieces to complete the outfit. Urban additions could be pleather pants, denim or pleather jacket, vest, headgear (hats, bandannas, wraps), or a shirt that matches or goes with the colors in your geek item. You get the idea! Let’s make gurb’l style a new movement. Just kidding. It’s just fun to me.

urban cool style 7/26/14: match your shoes to a shirt in the same color group
I’ve been wanting to wear these shoes in Boston for a minute. The best way to wear them is with a shirt of the same color and pants of a different color. The one outfit I normally wear them with I left in Texas. So, I don’t have a shirt that matches them. If you have a fun, bright, or crazy shoe you want to wear, but don’t have a shirt of the same color, wear something in the same color family. I have a light red (almost pink) pair of pants. I’ve worn those with this outfit instead, but I’ve decided that it’s too much of similar colors, but not enough of the same color. In that case, it pops too much and the eye doesn’t know where to go. These black pants break up the colors nicely and help the shirt and shoes “go” together better. Any neutral pant color will do. With it, I’m wearing my silver rings on both hands, black watch with hot pink details on black face, and two hairbands as bracelets (one on each hand) in case I want to put my hair up later.
