Jason Bornstein from a mens apparel brand, Bonobos contacted me and asked if I would be up for writing a summer post around their new line of mens summer suits. It had dawned on me that I only style with women's apparel, but I had this idea of styling an outfit that was inspired by Bonobos' new line came to me, thinking this was what he wanted, he apparently didn't but thought the idea was great, so I just went for it.

I picked out a few color and pattern schemes from here and there on the Bonobos site, and came up with this. A pair of pastel blue jeans, a blue blazer, and a floral top that substitutes as one of the neckties that they have on their store. I topped it off with a spiked necklace and some ankle strap heels.
