It didn't take me a really long time to figure out a name for this post. Incendio is the fire making spell in Harry Potter. Can you pinpoint my inspiration? 

Ha, when I received this tie, it made me think I could be part of a real world's modern Gryffindor House.  When I look at this outfit, I see fire, so Incendio was the perfect match.

This #ootd is about fueling your fire and persevering. What is it that keeps you going, even when it seems like the light at the end of the tunnel is unreachable?

There are a lot of things I love about this look, actually I love every single component of this outfit. I'm wearing an olive green blazer with navy elbow patches that compliment my denim jeans and this gorgeous leather bag. I went with the choice of warmer colors to accentuate the boldness of the tie. I love monk strap shoes, they're probably my favorite style of shoes, and this one is certainly a winner. For the finishing touches, lots of dots - pin, pocket square, and socks.
