Hello world, I've always wanted to start my own blog. My friends and family tell me I should since there is always some kind of Adventure going on in my life. So I stop putting it off and said to myself, " it's ok i got this!" A little about myself, there is so much to say but I don't even know where to start! I am a gay guy who loves to do anything and everything he can. I just can't seem to stay still! My 9 to 5 is working in the wonderful world of Visual Management. For those who have no idea what that is (which is about 80% of people) allow me to explain. I'm the person who sets up all the lovely displays, and dresses all the beautiful mannequins in a retail store. I love this job because it allows me to empower my creativity. Yes the company gives you a directive to follow but it's my job to bring it to life and give it my special touch. Every store has the same directive but I'm known for my styling and my love of color which is the "Pedro touch" that make my displays more enjoyable to view! I love to just take each moment and tell a story or like I say give it some romance! Enough of my day job on to the adventures! After I leave my 9 to 5 it's time to live it up!! On "my time" I plan events with my friends and fellow blogger Megan Spar! We love to make people's occasions be one of a kind special event for them and everyone who attends. In my blog I will take you along all my fun adventures! From my day to day conversations to things I find interesting or fun. I will also introduce DIY's that I try or would like to try, and most important my love of fashion! Why I choose to name my blog Adventures in Style: I will be doing just that, taking you on an adventure introducing you to my style! So come with me on my Adventures in Style!!

The Art Around US

Urban art one of those things we all have around us. Sometimes we dont take the time to truly appreciate it. We think of it as a nuisance, something that brings down our property value!

Not to me, I see it as a form of expression. A wonderful talent not everyone possesses.  I sure dont! God I can’t draw a straight line with a can of spray paint. Its hard enough for me to spray paint a table, I couldn’t imagine making a master piece. I give them alot of credit for the work that they do.

When you look at some of these peices of art it tells you alot about the artist and it opens a small window in to their world. I find myself getting lost in the stories these artists put together for the world to enjoy. They make this accessible to everyone. You don’t have to go to a gallery to see their work! Its sometimes right out side your front door.

Take it from me, one day when you can’t find something to do just go get your favorite drink and take a walk. You will enjoy it……  “The art around US”

Cowboy Chic!

It was my friend’s birthday this weekend and she decided to go to a Country bar! Oh boy, time to think of an outfit the first thought that popped in to my mind!!

First I think of a cliche outfit…. all denim.

Then I thought of a plaid shirt with skinny jeans rolling the cuff and wearing my ankle Cowboy boots.

Ummm…. then it hit me!!! Lets have fun with this. I thought its too hot out, so shorts are a must but I still wanted to wear a plaid shirt. NOW COMES THE FUN! Well my shorts are short shorts lets pick a fun color…..Pale Pink, Perfect!  For a shirt, let me go with something darker….Found it, a blue white and black plaid shirt. “How can I make this more Pedro?” >>  A bow tie of course!! Oh yeah now I will take it to the next level and bring it all together with my Cowboy Boots!!!

I then was going to put it up for Battle of the looks but I was too in love with the look that I couldn’t do that to myself.  I totally had to wear this look!!
