SUMMER STAYCATION

On Mama: Cotton striped cover up by Calypso / on Boys: Shorts by Bonobos and T-shirts by Lemongrass

Living like a tourist and spending a night or two at a hotel in the city or town you live in can make a fun vacation. Book lodging in a neighborhood you haven’t spent time in. Pack light and use  cover ups that can go over your suit making it easy to transition from the pool or the beach as you walk through your hotel lobby or grab lunch in the restaurant.

THE HAT
A Fedora can add a bit of personality to even the most simple of outfits. This one, hand made in Ecuador by Valdez, adds color and and eclectic sense to an already classy style.
