source Lately, I’ve been on a mission to find ways to dress down my tailored wardrobe. I tried wearing suits with sneakers, blazers with sneakers, and of course blazers with jeans! All of them are great options to make a tailored outfit a little less formal, but this time around I wanted to incorporate one of my favorite shirts, the henley.

If you follow my Instagram, you already know that I plan on dressing a lot bolder for this upcoming fall/winter season. I’m talking about more plaids, windowpanes, and chalk stripe fabrics, and this plaid jacket (part of a suit) is just the first of many.
