Hey Gals & Gents,
Who’s ready to take off some time and take a little vacation?!? It’s definitely that time of year when all you want to do is be by the beach and sip on some cold beer. Gio and I, along with some friends planned a beautiful trip to La Paz, B.C. Mexico. I can speak for the both of us and say that this was such an amazing place. We were there for 3 days so it was a short but fun vacation. Our days were packed with activities so we needed to know what Gio was going to pack for this short trip. Here are a couple of Gio’s vacation essentials:
Shirts: On this trip, the temperatures were going to be in the 90s and Gio wanted something fresh and comfortable to be in. He opted for 2 printed T-shirts. The first design was nautical stripes; perfect for those vacations near water and it has a V-neckline which makes men look great. This shirt was a “must take along,” according to Gio. The second shirt was a crew-neck white T-shirt with blue and yellow dots. This one was so airy and the fit was perfect.
Shorts: He chose 2 bermuda shorts. These were perfect transition pieces; what I mean by that is Gio could wear these to the beach, sightseeing or he could wear them out for a fun night around town. The first pair again had nautical stripes (can you tell Gio’s favorite vacation print) and these paired perfectly with the white crewneck. The second pair were plain burgundy shorts and these looked great with the V-neck.
Accessories: To bring the outfits together we chose some brown accessories to give it a softer tone. The first accessory is a brown belt with a classic touch. The second accessories were some dark tan sandals. They were perfect for the weather and provided some comfort. The last “accessory” was these super cute palm swim trunks. Gio really wanted to get some Chubbies but they wouldn’t have gotten to us in time, so of course I told him Target might have something he likes. These actually matched my swimsuit and again they were perfect for the beach environment we were in.
Everything about Gio’s must haves, were about comfort while looking put together and stylish. My favorite items were the swim trunks; they were the perfect length, not too short that it screamed perv. and not to long that it screamed little kid.
While at your getaway destination, the #1 thing is to have fun and relax.

Hello Gents and Gals,
Just like us ladies need a new dress for Easter or this spring, our gents need the equivalent of that! Gio and I found the perfect suit for this season. Of Course, it took some convincing to do. We were browsing through Desert Hill Premium Outlets and came across the Express Factory Store. We made our way to the dress clothes section and saw this suit. Gio was hesitant about getting this beauty. It took some convincing and selling him on the color, but at last it happened. Anyways, when I first saw this suit it screamed spring! It’s a nice colored khaki, not too dark and not too light, and it’s very versatile. I think if it would have been a darker khaki it wouldn’t have match Gio’s personality and the season.
As you begin to think of what to wear for Easter, all these pastels or lighter shade of colors come to mind.This is exactly what we were thinking when we opted for this mint color shirt. As you look at this outfit everything is so clean and neutral, your eyes direct to the bright mint button up. The shirt has little white and blue polka dots, such a subtle detail that adds to your outfit. To bring out the polka dots on the shirt we added a striped white and blue pocket square.Since we wanted to keep a clean look we chose to pair this outfit with a dark brown belt and monks, creating a little contrast.

It’s Monday again!!! I am so sorry I didn’t post last week, I have been very busy getting some personal stuff done. Well today is all about these “highlighter” color shoes! When Gio and I had first seen these shoes, about three years ago, I fell in love with them because they were unique. You didn’t see people wearing this color combo yet. Gio is a little bit more conservative and doesn’t try some stuff until he is for sure he likes them and will look good; but of course I had to explain to him that it’s better to set the trend! Well, needless to say these are one of our favorite Nike Roshe’s we’ve owned. Due to the color of the shoes we would keep the outfit simple, so the focus remains on the shoes.
For today’s outfit, in honor that spring has finally arrived, we have this super casual outfit! Perfect for those days when you want to go explore the town or get some lunch. For this look we chose this blooming gray shirt. The best part about this shirt is the accent piece, it has a pocket with different colored flowers. Without noticing, before hand, we saw that the flowers match the colors of the Roshes!!! When you have such great accent pieces on your feet it drags your eyes to look through out the outfit for pieces that will match. We created different focal points without taking the attention from the shoes. To finish off this look we paired this super cute shirt and shoes with Gio’s favorite American Eagle jeans.
Today is the beginning of a new week, make it count!
