30 for 30: Day15 – Into the dust

For the holidays we decided to get away and enjoy the bounty of nature, in this case lots of boulders and rocks. I say this in retrospect just because I wasn’t easily convinced that there was a place like this where beauty was this stark and mysterious. It was indeed breathtaking and stunningly beautiful. We spent our holidays on wild desert land, and as an ode to the beauty of the place and our attempt at trying to blend into the landscape, here is the little fellow in a muted, desert color palette… Browns, Olives and Sand.

In the perfect man’s world you would wear your sweater over your shirt, especially a chunky knit one… but we don’t live by rules do we? we wore it under the shirt, and paired it with muted straight fit cords and the cult classic desert boots( I knew I had to get him into these from the moment we planned the trip). It keep him cozy and in tune with his surroundings, we did not need camouflage to blend into the landscape, just the right choice of colors worked.

The desert boots are an international cult classic and came into existence thanks to the inspiration from the British officers of world war two.This is definitely a timeless piece considering the styling hasn’t changed in over 50 years! It still manages to complete any guy’s outfit, however young or old.

Sweater – GAP
Military shirt – H&M

Desert boots – Old Navy
