I recently had the opportunity to have a staycation at The Ritz-Carlton here in Aruba. The four-day stay was one of the most relaxing and fun breaks I’ve had in a while. The Ritz-Carlton Aruba is located on Palm Beach in Aruba, which is such a beautiful place to be on the Island. The hotel features two beautiful swimming pools with Cabanas, One for adults and the other for families with children. We all love kids, but sometimes we just want a little peace and quiet. The rooms in the hotel are super spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable with wonderful views of the Caribbean sea. The hotel has many restaurants such as BLT Steak & Solanio with tasty menus. Overall it’s a dream hotel for obvious reasons, but what makes The Ritz-Carlton Aruba stand out from the rest is the staff. From the bell-boys to the waitress at the Cabana by the pool, the staff is the most attentive, considerate and kind workforce I have ever came across in Aruba. You truly feel like a king while staying at The Ritz-Carlton …

So… I got this fouta, yeah, that’s the “towel” :p and thanks to my friends at Ottoiio I was inspired to do this look. What do you think? I call it “Boho King”. I paired this outfit with different pieces from different brands. The Blue linen shirt by Onia is on top of my Algae Miami t-shirt. I think the classic look from the blue shirt keeps the whole outfit from being too “hippy”… let’s put it like that. Now, the breezy and pleasant printed white tee is soft and runs oversized. When I saw it I thought of some kind of palm trees Pathenon, it’s kind of greek/tropical, the white on white, you know what I mean? I like when a piece of clothing makes you have to give a second look to get the graphic. This Tee is perfect. Algae have a lot of different shirts and accessories, you should definitely check them out.
Soo… Even thou I live in a never ending summer, due to fashion seasons, I get excited when is summer time. New patterns, colors and cuts from my favorite swimwear brands! Check my top 10 favorites! Visit my instagram to see me wearing a few of these beautiful pieces!
Since I started this journey, Onia has always been a great supporter of the King with their amazing swimwear and this week we are giving you the opportunity to participate in a giveaway I’m doing with the help of Onia. The Calder 7.5″ Manning is their signature cut and style. To me, the highlights of this piece is the chino cut, so you know it fits well, it’s not baggy, which makes it a not so regular swim-short. The Liberty Art fabric is another exclusive touch, Liberty has been offering fabrics since 1875, so you know you’re sporting trunks with the highest and most exclusive materials on the market. Please visit Onia and explore in more detail about this fantastic pair of shorts we are proudly giving away to one of our lucky followers.

So… I Paired more or less this look last saturday I spent the day by the Marina with friends. I chose this bright coral Onia Joey t-shirt (better wear a colorful t-shirt just in case you fall overboard) and I paired it with a pair of Calder E5 by Onia also, the print is really minimal and they’re 5″ which is my favorite length when it comes to swim-shorts. Toms, not flip flops this time, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black Toms. The star of this outfit are my Oxford Vaughan sunglasses, the SuperYacht is the essential choice for eye protection against the challenging elements of the great outdoors. I added the Nixon watch and the Frescobol Carioca bag to complete the look online, those two pieces are on my wish list. I really like that watch. You can follow me on instagram clicking here
Once again Onia has the perfect color for summer, I have to tell you I’ve seen many flamingos in my life, now I see them in every single summer collection… and I wonder, do i wanna wear a picture of one or better sport the color of one? The answer is obvious. Check The Calder 7.5″, their signature trunk, in Burnt Coral. This short is sophisticated, sporty, perfect for a beach day or lounging by the pool. Make sure you follow Onia on instagram, you can check this pair of shorts here.
Another wonderful piece by Onia, the Black Frequency. It is available now online. Since my first pair of Onia I’ve always been a fan of the Calder shorts. Check this beautiful new piece named Black Frequency. Why the Calder? Exemplifying a commitment to class, style and quality from the smallest detail upwards the Calder Trunk is their signature style. The fit is inspired by the classic chino cut and their construction—sewn with a clean finish along the inner and outer seams—takes a cue from high-end dress pants. • 7.5″ inch inseam • 17.5″ inch outseam • superfine mesh lining • custom antique nickel hardware • internal quick drying nylon adjustable drawstring • two deep, reinforced, double-lined side pockets • rear pocket with hidden snap • rear locker loop • zip front fly and snap closure at waistband Make sure you follow Onia on instagram and twitter or like their facebook page.
My firends at Onia did an exclusive interview with me for their Journal, check it out here! Also make sure to check their new collection available now. For this interview I was sporting the brilliant Black Wave, the stylish Viola trunks and the elegant Jack shirt.
Finally the Black Wave by Onia is here… How can I describe these shorts? I could talk about the high quality of the fabric and the unique details that these swim-trunks have but that’s not what I like the most about the shorts, what I love about them is the feeling you get when you wear a statement piece, a show-stopper. You feel great in them, you look great in them, you stand apart from the crowed in them. They’re so visually attractive and interesting that you can’t take your eyes off them… and they photograph so well, they’re simply an amazing piece of swimwear. I highly recommend you get these swim trunks … They’re my favorite this season. The best one yet by Onia without a doubt. Make sure you check them out here!
Onia has a new collection for spring 2014, beautiful prints as always but gotta say their Calder 7.5″ Black Wave is AMAZING. Can’t wait to get my hands on it. They’re a showstopper. They come in different colors but the black to me is the best, they pop. In my opinion these pair could be their best yet. Make sure you check them out at http://www.onia.com
This pair of Calder are flirting with me for a while now. The paisley print is very in right now. I think I might get this for christmas, if you live by the beach you never have enough swim trunks. They come in different colors but I like it in red. Make sure you check Onia.
