As the weather continues to warm up this spring season, you might’ve already start opting for shorts and slip-ons over boots and down jackets. However, with random weather shifts and rain, you’ll still need a light jacket and jeans as the season continues. Below, find some of my favorite spring styles like the bomber jacket, but also selects for the warmer weather and the upcoming summer. I’ll be updating this post both season, so be sure to come back each month for new additions!

As it becomes more evident that fall is here with the temperate dropping, it’s time to rethink the footwear collection. While some year-round footwear options such as leather sneakers are still good, there are some new (and classics) styles out there to consider getting to keep warm and dry, but looking stylish: Read the rest of this entry
With summer travel planning in mind, there are a few things you should always have in your wardrobe and accessories collection to be ready for the season ahead and for any last minute tropical getaways. I recently traveled to Thailand and had to pack for high 80s and 90 degree, humid weather. Knowing I’d be in the lush tropics of beach towns like Krabi and Khao Lak I packed a range of short sleeved tops, shorts, swimwear and sunnies.

In this edition of Vee Travels’ In The Bag series, essential accessories for traveling Cancún, Mexico. Shot at the Moon Palace, these accessories mix a little luxury with simple travel and tropical necessities that’ll keep you stylish and happy.
Tote – Coach
The sophisticated Coach Bleecker Day Tote In Bar Stripe Leather makes a colorful statement with the sky blue stripes, but its gold hardware adds the refined look to the bag. Spacious with large pockets inside (one zip and another with snap closure, it can be carried by its leather handles or a detachable nylon shoulder/crossbody strap. Large and durable for 15″ laptop as well.
Swimwear – Zara
You can’t go wrong by selecting a floral or tropical print swimwear for the Caribbean, my selection is a clean black and white design from Zara (not available anymore, but here’s another style). The key to swimwear is picking one for your body, but a good rule of thumb to keep in mind is to avoid purchasing ones that go past your knees. Swim shorts with an 6-8″ inch seam should be able to work and look good for men of most heights and body types.
While in Mexico for the Cancún-Riviera Maya Wine & Food Festival this year, I had some down time for some much need style posts. Shot on the beach of the Moon Palace, a tee and shorts outfit is something that can be enjoyed both at your resort or by the beach. To add a little stylish flair, lightly layer with a short sleeve linen shirt (this one from Perry Ellis). Then to make a personal statement, talk with your accessories.
The Coach Bleecker Day Tote In Bar Stripe Leather makes a refined, yet colorful statement with the sky blue stripes, and then can glow with gold aviators (this fashionable performance pair is Under Armour UA Alloy). For footwear, if you’re not doing sandals go for printed espadrilles like this navy, cloud-turtle design from Sperry Top-Sider as an alternative to florals and tropical plants.
Shopping the other day I couldn’t help but notice all the different non holiday-related sales going on. The retail gods must’ve learned it’s my bday this week and wanted to surprise me or something. In case you haven’t had a chance to take advantage yet, or are worried there’s nothing left, here are my favorite on sale boots, shoes and kicks that are perfect for the transition into the spring weather ahead:
Ditch the solid trunks this Labor Day weekend and go for bold prints or patterns. Palm Springs meets New England with this look featuring Mr Turk in Greenwich, CT’s Tod’s Point; a beach/park and marina that is must if you’re ever in Fairfield County.
Here on a bright, breezy day, Tom models one of Mr Turk’s latest swimwear designs, the safari board shorts, paired with a mini houndstooth patterned short sleeve button down. The shirt is very versatile and we did two looks with it, showing how to transition from casual summer work into a festive, holiday-ready outfit.
