Jeff’s closing in on the end of his first full week at his new big-boy Chicago job. (Remember when he was here looking for a job a few weeks ago? Well, he got one. And now he’s crashing on my couch until his super cool new place is ready in the Logan Square slums. It’s a difficult life we lead…watching the “Chicago Code” [which is hands down the best television show ever made], socializing every night, heists, shenanigans, and stepping over broken glass to get Niko’d every weekend.)
Not Jeff would ever be unstylish, but part of the new job is dressing well, so he’s been trying out some new looks. I’ll kick it over to him.
Jeff: Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and prints, as long as it’s in the same color story. I mixed this obnoxious printed stars shirts that I picked up at Halls during their winter sale and a dandy flower bowtie from Etsy.
I threw on a vest to break up the dark colors and add some contrast.
