Walmart does it again! 

Walmart sponsored this blog post by challenging me yet again to come up with a stylish outfit on a budget. Naturally I accepted the challenge and I would like to say I came out victorious. So we kept it casual this time around with a cool but warm light winter look for these cooler winter days and evenings. A thermal, with a down vest, some joggers, check sneaks, and a beanie to tie it all together. The best way to keep the body temperature in check while keeping it light. Shout out to Walmart yet again for making a seemingly impossible task easy as pie.  CLICK HERE FOR THE GOODNESS

 

 

 

 

From Top to bottom we started with an oversized beanie, light vest, thermal, joggers and some comfy sneaks to round it out. Keeping it cool and chic yet warm. Check out the photos after the jump and tell me what you think .

The Gift box of all Gifts 

This blog is in fact sponsored by Babblebox.com and I am so glad it is. I had no idea who Babblebox was a few weeks ago but as of writing this letter I do now. Babblebox curates gift boxes to showcase various themes of products to get it out to the masses. The theme for this box was Trendy bits for men. This box was loaded with most of the items I have never heard of but am a believer in their great products. From Watches to wine, to some comfy new shoes What I am about to show you below is some of the best products for your friend, loved one, relative in your life that needs a great gift that they can use for years to come. 

 

 

First up GiftTree: Gifttree curates gift baskets for every occasion and a plethora of styles. From Wine, to beer, to candy, to fruit, to champagne you name it they probably have it. My favorite part of what they sent is the ability to customize the products with in your gift basket. So I obtained a customized bamboo wine set with my initials on it as well as a customized bold red bottle of wine. This alone leaves a statement and have already started incorporating this gift into my parting gifts with my clientele. 

 

 

ZENNI Optical: Might be best known for their eyeglasses and their ability to take a picture of your face and try on a multitude of styles do see how they fit your face. Quite clever and genius if you ask me. What I unboxed was an absolute premium product for a ridiculously great price. My glasses were sent in a nice leather glasses case, with polarized lenses and nice springer hinges. Extremely impressed with how well these glasses are made and even more impressed with the price!

 

 

 

CASIO: G-SHOCK: The Casio G-Shock has been around since before my time. First hitting the streets in 1983, this watch has become an icon with an almost cult like following. An extremely tough and versatile watch there is a G-shock for you in a vast amount of styles and colors, for any trend or occasion your little heart desires. Ranging from about $100 and going way north of there no matter what your style or budget there is a G-Shock for you. The one I am wearing is a GA700AR-1A in a new red color way to mix things of for the holiday season .

 

Solemates: There are few things that are worse than blisters and smelly feet. Lucky for your that is now a thing of the past. With Solemates they have the best products for your feet shoes and other high use extremities. With their blister blocker it helps relieve the tension, rubbing and chafing from running shoes, work boots, heels etcetera. Leaving you in more comfort then you were the last time you wore the nice but pesky shoes. Also if you have sweaty feet or do not like wearing socks Solemates has the solution for you. Not only to keep your shoes in tip top shape but more importantly smelling great. 

 

 

Samuel Hubbard: Being a sneaker head, I like all these sneakers. Price, style, materials it does not matter to me. If they look great and fit great ; I have to have them. Needless to say Old Sam Hubbard, was a pleasant surprise. Utilizing some of the best leather and craftsman ship in the industry they have created a comfortable versatile shoe by pairing it with a Vibram sole. So much so that I have worn these everyday since I have gotten the box. they look much more expensive then they are and they function great what more can you ask for? 

 

 

Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers New York:  There is absolutely nothing worse than going to someones house that has uninteresting coffee table books. maybe something is wrong with me for actually picking up the books and thumbing through them. However I feel that a book should contain some good information if it is going to be left on the coffee table for all to observe. Well Black Dog has fixed that problem. One of my favorite type of books: The " How Things Work" by Theodore Gray takes you on a visual journey on how things work. From automatic watches, to gears, to electronic door handles. This is a fascinating take on trends, and pure function. My kid and I have geeked out the past week over the goodness of this book. This will satisfy even the slightest nerd in you.

Walmart - The fashion destination you never knew you needed! 

Before we hop into things we have some house cleaning to address. This blog is in fact sponsored by Walmart - But good news is Walmart is Killin the game. Now let's get back to business. Walmart approached me and challenged me to find stylish clothing to show off all the amazing fashionable they have to offer for for various popular styles. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. They then asked me to do it again for a holiday look... Once again Walmart did not disappoint. They have something for every one, no matter the style or size or budget. If you need an outfit just because, or for a special occasion Walmart will definitely come through. 

 

So for this Holiday look, I went for a Winter Chic wonderland theme. Christmasy reds with flannel boots, beanie overcoat and voila, a winter ready look that's warm and all under $100.

First we started with the hipster look with the oversized beanie. 

 

 

Then we took it to a red turtle neck to really keep warm from the elements. 

Some plaid pants with the side zip so that you can wear it with an array of shoe styles: Boots, sneakers, casual shoes etcetera. 

 

Boots to brave the elements 

 

Tied it off with an overcoat. 

 

Giving you a very casual yet sharp aesthetic to wear to a party, night out, or even the Christmas party. 

Stepping with purpose 

What is better than a quality made product? A quality handmade product with a purpose. Oliberté is a unique handmade product that not only empowers it's wearer with a great handmade unique product; but furthermore teaching a man how to fish by providing skilled workers with jobs to take care of their families and encouraging free enterprise. Sourcing everything out of Africa, a land that is rich with natural resources and making it sustainable, by investing back into the culture, back into the land, and back into the people. 

 

Having never heard of Oliberté, I wasn't sure what to expect but their eclectic designs and good story drew me to them. I got my hands on the MOJOO x McNairy collab black horsehair boot. When I opened the box, the sweet smell of natural rubber and beautiful leather filled the room and what came out was in fact a beautiful well constructed shoe. 

I have been wearing the shoes for about two weeks, and I am far from disappointed. The craftsmanship will rival some of the worlds best and the comfortability cannot be matched. 

If you are looking for something sustainable, stylish, impeccable, and has a clear purpose look no further than Oliberté
