ESCAPE TO THE CARIBBEAN | THE RITZ CARLTON ARUBA

The Ritz-Carlton Aruba allowed me to call it home for another weekend, and what a weekend it was! Aruba is such a great spot in the Caribbean for many reasons: turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, beautiful people and exquisite food. Literally, if you look up the word paradise in a dictionary a photo of Aruba will pop up. One of the most important reasons and perhaps one that is not known to many is the fact that this little gem in the Caribbean can guarantee good weather 99% of the year. Is it a safe bet to visit Aruba? Aruba is south of the hurricane belt, which means hurricanes are not common in this area. In fact, the hurricane frequency in Aruba is roughly every 28.8 years. The last one was a Level 2 hurricane causing minor damage and took place back in 2007, 10 years ago. So, to answer my previous question; yes, Aruba is a safe bet. I encourage you to come visit and choose The Ritz-Carlton Aruba as your home away from …

ORLEBAR BROWN’s 10

Orlebar Brown is celebrating their 10 year anniversary this year. I have been a loyal fan since the very beginning, If you have been following me since day one, then you have seen me sporting the brand on many of my Instagram posts. I must say I have more Orlebar Brown shorts in my closet than any other brand. My first pair ever is a Gray Malin collaboration. This pair alone has traveled with me all around the Caribbean. I would say that I really consider it to be a personal treasure and a family heirloom, my first born son will inherit these swim trunks. I was fortunate enough to be invited by Orlebar Brown for their celebration in Bermuda. The invitation came from the man himself, Adam Brown. After so many years admiring his work. It was truly such a thrill to meet the man person. He is a true innovator when it comes to designing swimwear for men. While in Bermuda we stayed at the Hamilton Princess, which is one of the best …

This is truly a special collection that I had the privilege to shoot with my friend Isaiah. All these pieces are available online and in selected stores around the world, click here to visit Velorum’s website.

VERSACE SWIMWEAR

Swim Briefs, Swim Shorts, Pajama Shirt by Versace _________________________________________________________________ Speedo season, or swimwear in general, is never over in the Caribbean. Here I am sporting my new favorite pair of swim briefs, yes, I know, I call speedos all my briefs, but is the force of habit. Burgundy is a fall color, in my opinion, if you wanna keep a little seasonal tone in your swimwear also this is the perfect piece. I always wear shorts to the beach and brief under, I like to sunbath in speedos, tan lines are very sexy in my opinion. Both pieces are from the newest collection and they’re available online . You can also visit a Versace boutique or Saks to get any of these pieces.    

VILLINO FLORIO

VILLINO FLORIO “Beneath the shadow of Villino Florio sprout colors in opaque, sophisticated shades. These are the precious hues od the noble gardens of Palermo, which, combined with the sinuous grace of Liberty style create enchanting blossoms and bring exclusive garments to life. The sparkling avant-garde atmosphere of the Sicilian Belle Epoque thus lives on in the refined elegance of the floral prints, whose soft arboreal lines evoke the splendor and charm of the Art Nouveau period and the great industrialist families of Palermo.” It was love at first sight when I saw this botanical print, it is very masculine, I saw these two pieces and could not help myself and I had to try them on. I think you saw my snaps and insta-stories about my trip to the store located at the Renaissance mall in the beautiful Aruba. I went for a beach stroll and did some amazing pictures. I accessorized the look with a few gold rose bracelets and black Dolce Gabbana sunnies. Jacket, shorts and sunnies by Dolce Gabbana, bracelets by …
