Fashion Month begins by Mike Tyle

Fashion Week has begun! Naturally I LOVE it.

I had almost forgotten about Fashion Night Out which was here on Friday night in Düsseldorf. It is always fun to see everyone dressed up for the occasion and having a good time! A lot of stores along Königsallee (Germany's busiest, luxury shopping street) had special events and parties. I met up with a friend of mine and tried to hit up as many stores as possible and see what specials were going on. Most of our luck was spent trying new cocktails, whoops!

In other news I have been diligently working away on the city guides which I have written in earlier post about. I have also decided to add the current city I live in, Düsseldorf, as well as my home town area just for fun and to show that even in a place not as well recognized as Paris or Berlin there are still things to see and do. 

Sadly, 2 photo shoots I was set to be styling this weekend have been canceled because of bad weather. Damn you Germany and your rain! Hopefully the rescheduled day will cooperate.

To end the post here are a couple random outfits from the past week. I think the best thing about fashion is you can wake up and be yourself but show it in a different way everyday. There is something about having a distinct look where people know your style, which is great. I would say that while I usually gravitate toward similar items when shopping I also like to mix it up. Maybe one day dress in a more business look, then the next an easy comfy casual style or something darker. It all depends on my mood.

Blurred lines.

Sweater- Vintage bought in Antwerp (been wearing it non-stop!) , T-shirt- Zara, Jeans- Levi's, Shoes- Mr. B's, bag- Opening Ceremony

closer look at the shoes.

I love how a simple t-shirt can easily become more intricate just by adding symmetrical dividing seams.

A friend of mine, Maksim , has a great eye for light and always has his vintage camera (1958) on him randomly took this pic of me at work the other day.

Odd camera angle... but was heading off to work and the lighting was great!

Shirt- Rick Owens Drkshdw (sample say, hey!), Pants- Marc by Marc Jacobs (oldie but goodies)

2nd monday by Mike Tyle

Allergies have kicked it up a notch since the weekend, the weather has cooled down considerably which makes it difficult to leave my bed in the morning and underwear seems to be a better option than actual pants. 

It's only Tuesday but I swear it's Monday 2.0... 

All in all I am happy with what I did manage on throwing on in less than 5 min between jumping out of bed and the train leaving for work. Lo and behold:

 

New sweatshirt: Zara

Last min change of pants, much better color scheme!

Time flies by Mike Tyle

Since being back I have been getting into the daily schedule at work, catching up with meetings, sifting though emails (only 750!) and being inspired by my surroundings. Which is a great thing; but getting a chance to relax is also great and spending time with family and friends is more than wonderful and not to be take for granted!

I will be adding a few new albums soon of my 3 weeks at home, which I am still trying to decide how to split it up between themes... but in the mean time a long awaited style post (Part 1)! See below for the results and I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

P.S.- there will be some repetition in pieces as I was limited by a suitcase, but I did my best to make it work depending on the event at hand!

Insta-satisfaction by Mike Tyle

As anyone who knows me can surely attest to my photo taking ways the past 3 weeks are no different. I have somehow amassed almost 2,000 pics!  

While I have begun to sort through all the memories of this wonderful vacation I was able to spend with family and friends I have started-up my Instagram to capture the random highlights of my daily life. Please feel free to follow me there for quick updates.

Here's a sneak peek from the holiday outfit highlight post I am working on.
