Camouflage invasion X XcessP

Comfort wise, this is not my favorite part of the year. I mean what do you expect from a kid raised in the heart of Africa? Well on the brighter side, I can be more expressive with my outfits so no worries. This post gives you a feel of the city I reside in most of the time, Athens. These pictures and clips in the video at the end of the post were shot downtown Athens, Georgia. I thought I will accompany this post with a video as a means of starting up something new and creating a more interactive atmosphere.

As you will see this is a green themed outfit. These camouflage pants happen to be one of my favorites in my wardrobe this season. I just can't seem to get enough of its dynamic layout. The prints on the pants are busy enough so I complemented them with non-printed pieces to establish an eye catching contrast.

The beauty in the green briefcase lies in the tangelo orange outline and handle. Definitely adds an accent to ones outfit.

The grey chesterfield coat made out of wool is pretty neat. It provides great warmth and it is a chic complementing piece to a variety of outfits. At least one of this should be in everyone's wardrobe so long as one finds it affordable.

Meet my friend, Teniola who is both a singer and a comedian. Check out her YouTube page here. We are cooking up a lot of things that I can't wait to bring into fruition. Lookout for her in the video at the end of the post as well.

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably would have come across this but for the sake of those who haven't, a few weeks ago I was interviewed by Russel Abbad from The Red and Black on my views on fashion, and I am humbled to have been put on a list of 3 individuals pushing the limits of fashion in Athens, Georgia. If you will like to watch the video, search for 'Athens fashion passions documentary' on YouTube or just click here.

Lately one of the life lessons that have practically manifested in my life is that every dream needs a detailed plan of attainment and daily hard work in bettering ones craft to achieve that dream. A detailed plan includes a schedule that lays out ones ultimate goal in a decomposed form which means that the ultimate goal is broken down into smaller parts.  Each component has its individual deadline to be achieved. The deadline date also serves as a check point to measure ones success thus far. I recently started to put this into practice and I am liking the result. You might want to try it out if you haven't.

Like I said earlier, I chose to include a video to create a more interactive atmosphere so please you are more than welcomed to comment, share, subscribe, like etc. Stay XcessPified.
