In Santa Fe with The Dandy Liar
Hi everyone! If you saw my Instagram post earlier today, you'll know that I invited one of my oldest friends to do a blog/Insta takeover for the week. So, meet Aubrey! Formerly a men's stylist at Fossil, she now has a lovely design blog called TheDandyLiar. Hope you enjoy!
Hi guys! Aubrey here. As Kathrine's first guest blogger, I will be taking over the blog and instagram this week, where I will walk you through a wedding weekend in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I'll leave you with a weekend's worth of outfits, styled by yours truly, featuring some of the best men's accessories around.
Santa Fe, New Mexico- hands-down, one of the most inspiring cities in our great country (in my humble opinion). So when my cousin Sarah announced she would be getting married there, I definitely did one of these:
Not only did Sarah announce that the wedding would be in my favorite Southwestern city, but that the celebration would manifest itself in the form of a full week of activities.
Next, my thoughts immediately turned to the all-important question of what are we going to wear? A full week of outfits?
That's where my dear friend Kathrine comes in. She generously provided me with a week's worth of neck adornments for my handsome husband, Adam, and gave me full-reign to style to my heart's content.
For the welcome party, I chose the Heathered Grey Necktie (a current best-seller and maybe my favorite piece in the whole collection) to dress this stud. The affair took place in the courtyard at a relative's mountain-top adobe house that overlooked the beautiful views of the city. The organic cotton/hemp material of the tie made it the perfect pick for the evening, where the attire leaned on the casual side. I paired it with an oxblood gingham button-down for contrast, denim and sand-colored suede oxfords. I completed the look with one of Kathrine's vintage tie bars.
So there you have it- outfit number one. And below, I've selected some of my favorite pieces to help you get the look.
