OUR Life, OUR Dress Code w/ Express

The older I get the more I realize how precious time really is. One moment you’re in a high school cafeteria cracking jokes with your friends and the next you’re walking across the stage graduating from college. Then, a couple of years go by and you become so busy with your career that it’s hard to just kick back and enjoy the little things in life.

Thankfully, even though both of our schedules are hectic, my girlfriend and I always make sure that we set time aside to just relax and soak up some of this California sun!

This month, I partnered with Express for their Your Life, Your Dress Code campaign. It’s all about capturing real and candid moments within our daily life, and right now nothing is more real or more important to me than spending quality time with the people I love.

After all, time is the only real luxury!

If you’re familiar with Express, I’m sure you already know that I was tempted to feature one of their Slim Photographer Suits. However, I wanted to show something that I would wear while taking a stroll in the park with my lady.

So I opted for a simple, yet classic all-black look instead. I will always love a quality henley shirt so this one was a no-brainer. Also, I’ve been looking for a pair of biker jeans for a while but I could never find a pair that fit me perfectly.

Fortunately, this pair was exactly what I’ve been looking for all along!

Dominque loves wearing all white and summer-inspired dresses, so this off the shoulder tunic dress is definitely her style. In fact, if it was up to her we would be both be wearing all white again.

She also swapped out the white belt for this gold vintage belt instead. As I’ve mentioned previously, a vintage accessory can be the perfect finishing touch!
