As I was heading out to the city for the night, I found David walking around on the loop, a popular place for students in St. Louis to hang out. There are hookah spots, bars, and neat shops for about a mile.
David was on his way to a concert at The Pageant and when I saw his European-inspired style, I had to ask for some pictures. I love how cool and classic he looked.

Elements of David's Outfit
1. Smartwatch and Woven Bracelets
Even though I am still a skeptic about smartwatches, David had nothing but good things to say about his nifty gadget. It has a sleek look and eliminates the need for a phone crammed into your pocket at all times.
This watch was also a nice contrast to David's handmade woven bracelets. The colorful collection lightened up his put-together look, and gave it a more relaxed vibe.
2. Neutral Color Combo
Navy and khaki are a fabulous neutral color combination. This pairing looks trendy, but is so easy to wear. Neutrals are perfect for everyday wear, and allow for accents and accessories to shine through.
3. Desert Boots
Desert boots are a classic choice that pair well with almost any outfit, and these shoes brought together David's trendy look. His laces were actually slightly broken, but apparently this happened often because David pulled out a reel of twine to re-lace them!
