Pink Ombré | Ralph Lauren

So… Here’s this beautiful pink ombré shirt paired with a royal blue blazer and jeans. I fell in love with the shirt the minute I saw it at Ralph Lauren and then I decided to create an outfit around it. My head works like this: That beautiful pink shirt I had to tone it down with a masculine blue jacket, I know, i know..colors have no gender, but I love the contrast and then to make it more casual I chose a pair of Ralph Lauren jeans from their new collection. All pieces are from their new summer collection, included the gorgeous leather Duffel bag,  an ideal companion for the frequent traveler. You can fit almost anything in there and it smells so goooood.   The haze sunglasses, called Raze in Electric Blue are a statement piece, the blue on the top of the lens gives them this unique look setting them apart from regular aviators. The watermelon Lecimes case, as I’m sure you know it by now is my favorite case this season.

Shades Of Blue

Soo… I visited  Ralph Lauren at The Renaissance Mall the minute I heard they had their new Summer Collection. First piece I fell in love with was this polo shirt; dip-dyed by hand to create ombre stripes in shades of blue. It’s fresh, modern and very eye-catchy without being over the top, it has this elegant-casual “wow” factor. You should get it. They have some other ombre polos that are equally colorful, fun and casual to enjoy this summer. I paired this polo with this sand color jeans by Ralph Lauren also and navy espadrilles by Superglamourous. Special thank you to Edward Perdomo for the picture, you can follow him on Iinstagram @edwardfoto

Caribbean Boho King

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.

ONE PERFECT SUMMER OUTFIT

So, summer is here… actually is always here in Aruba, but for those who are waiting for the hottest and most fun time of the year, here’s so outfit I put together with Ralph Lauren. Let’s start with this beautiful sailboat print mercer shirt in green linen. It was love at first sight, it is a classic shirt but so vibrant and colorful, my eyes went directly to this showstopper the minute I was browsing around the store.  It is 100% linen, it has a convenient rounded patch pocket at the left chest and split back yoke with a box pleat it has, gives you a greater range of motion and makes it so confortable to wear, those are the details I love from this shirt. Taking in consideration the shirt has a very bright and eye catchy print I decided to pair it with a more toned down bottom, so I went for a more light blue bermuda short with an equally relaxed silhouette, made of cotton. It’s a perfect basic that you can pair with anything and everything, it is …

THE BEACH TOWEL BY GRAY MALIN

These oversized towel by Gray Malin, my favorite photographer if you don’t know by now,  are the must-have item of the summer. What’s spcial about them? Well, besides featuring Gray Malin’s artwork, these towels are bigger than your usual beach towel, So you have an idea, they’re bigger than a twin size bed (42″ x 74″), that means, a man like me (6’3″) fits on it comfortably and I can also have some company 🙂 They feature the beautiful and glamorous beaches of St. Tropez and they’re a limited edition, so I suggest you get them now!  Click here to learn more about this towels! Follow Gray Malin on Instagram and here to follow me just in case you haven’t done it already :p

The Perfect Blue Shirt

Resort wear is a year-round fashion season, and Vilebrequin has the perfect options in their ready-to-wear collections. From Saint Tropez to Aruba, Martinique and Thailand, to the Costa Brava in Spain, St. Barths and all the Caribbean Islands, resort wear popularity is growing quickly. It’s a style that signifies luxury, relaxation, and appreciation of nature, travel and holidays. I see this year-round fashion daily in the Caribbean from tourists all around the world. Americans, Europeans, South Americans, etc., once it starts getting cold on their side of the world they all go on vacay looking for the warmth of the Caribbean. From Swim-shorts, polos and linen shirts, to light tops and dresses for women, cruise wear is exclusive in its function and construction design. I chose from Vilebrequin’s new collection two beautiful shirts, a classic terry cotton polo in royal blue and a linen short sleeved shirt in blue. The terry is a classic, with its unique fabric texture, so comfortable and dressy at the same time, perfect to go to the beach or grab cocktails at night. What I like the most about this polo shirt is how fresh it is during the …
