Happy coincidences happen, we all know this. The most recent for me was a desire to buy a pair of Timberland boots. This desire struck me about two weeks before the opportunity arose to work with Footasylum on a campaign dedicated to how to wear the 6 inch Premium Timberland boots. Luckily I had not yet funnelled my funds into a pair, all due to an idiotic oversight from someone I used to live with, leaving me with an unexpected bill of just under the price of a pair of Timberlands. This was unfortunate, yet slots in seamlessly with the overall coincidence of the situation and the boots slightly made up for the irritating situation. So, now I have them, how exactly do I wear my Timberlands? (Other than just "on my feet").

It's been a while since I have really focused on a brand in a non-review format. What it comes down to is a desire to continue a stream of content on O&U, but a difficulty in balancing working full time and the days getting shorter, with getting photos and allocating time for everything to be done. Canali is a brand I have always loved the idea of working with, although my style over time has become considerably more casual, my passion for the tailored attire has always persisted.

Two months is a long time to pause writing on a blog, I understand that. It wasn't the easiest decision to make, I stopped writing around the time that it was all I wanted to do, however I am happy I bit the proverbial bullet. Now I am back, and I truly hope that you consider this to be a positive thing. Since my last post, I have started a new job, moved to London, and basically achieved a goal I set out for myself earlier this year. This took concentration on things other than the blog, sadly.
Of course, I didn't want to start up again with any old post, and luckily for me I was contacted by the one, and only, Original Breton Shirt Co. A few years ago, I wrote a post on how to capture the style of James Dean using a Breton top from them, so it seems fitting to bring it back into the fold, this time wearing one of their tops myself. I understand that I don't look quite as suave as James Dean.

Bored on the Saturday before my graduation, after dangerously deciding to treat myself, I sprawled the internet in search for something that would be worthy of a graduation present from me to me. As tempting as it may have been to opt for a new pair of shoes, upgrading my camera or perhaps even stepping up my watch game (I'm addicted), I had a eureka moment to blow all other thoughts out of the water. Explore.

Unusual challenges and brand collaborations are always welcome with me, especially if they can have some kind of positive impact on my every day life. This is why I was so keen on collaborating with Fry's Vegetarian to go a week without meat, alongside why I worked with Virgin Active for the MyWorkoutFor Single Life campaign recently.
