So Long, Summer: A TNN Edit

Between London, Amsterdam, the day parties, picnics, and all of this surprisingly awesome weather we’ve had, the summer has been filled with a ton of amazing moments and memories with some of my favorite people; and, even though the best time of year is finally here, I’m a little sad to see it go. Before time ran out, I made sure to take a second to capture a few more shots in the Calvin Klein cloud print pieces — we’ll call this my final salute to the sunshine with my favorite menswear pieces of SS14.

To be honest, it’s a little hard for me to believe that it’s September already, but it’s true. On this last day of summer, I suppose it’s only right to stop and reflect on everything for a little bit. 2014 has been loaded with a ton of good energy and growth and I’m looking forward to it getting even better. I’ve closed a few chapters in my life—each of which I’m ready to comfortably put behind me—and opened a few new doors that I can’t wait to run through. The best is definitely ahead, in more ways than one.

Like all good things… this season has come to its end. So long, summer. Hello, fall. – JxR

[Mental Mood]: Simple


Its been a while since I’ve done one of these right?! For some reason I stopped taking my camera with me places and would rely solely on my iPhone but I’ve made a pact with myself to start (once again) taking my camera places I go to capture things I come across in the city or in this particular case; to capture myself. Yesterday after taking care of a few things my bro Chenir and I headed downtown to one of my favorite [somewhat hidden] coffee shops to escape our day to day routine and bounce a few ideas about some upcoming projects off of each other. In the midst of the walk from the train to the coffee shop we came across this brick wall and considering I haven’t done a street style post in a while and I had my camera; I figured [why not]?


As you all probably know (from recent previous posts) I’ve been on this [minalist] kick lately and I can’t deny, its been really fun. I put on my favorite pair of pants, a black sweater, and some of the most comfortable shoes [slides] ever created with little to no thought and was out the door. There honestly isn’t much to the story but it certainly summarizes my current mental mood. The plot just may thicken eventually but for now I’m keeping things simple.
