A cool hoodie [1] is a good for layering, this one by All Saints is knitted with merino wool.  A classic pair of Levi’s [2] in a dark color will work for day and night. A patterned pocket puts a twist in a basic men’s v-neck t-shirt [3].  Men can carry nice bags too, this leather trimmed carry all by Danish brand Mismo [4] is made with water-resistant canvas and will hold up nicely through the test of time.  Comfy sneakers [5] by Vans come in new cool colors.  Music is essential for most men, these noise canceling headphones by Bose [6] will work nicely while using the Iphone [9] for music.  The inflatable pillow [7] and blanket [11] pack up neatly in pouches, there’s lots of room for mom & kids to have each of their own, too and can be packed in Dad’s new carry all bag.  Kind bars [8] are another healthy tasty snack option.  Coconut water [10] to keep hydrated during the flight.

Surface to AIr

Digging the French streetwear brand, Surface to Air, which designs Ready to Wear for both men and women. It’s a favorite among hip hop artists to rockstars. We thought we’d highlight our favorite looks from the men’s collection.  The label’s vibe is a combo of hip French, American sportswear and British tailoring.  Looking forward to seeing what they have in store for new collections and collaborations.   

*Of course the “Go Home” sweatshirt worn by Jay Z is sold out.  We thought we’d also throw in where you can find the Brooklyn Nets Python print leather hat [left], here and if that price point is to steep, you can get the non leather version [right] here.

Women & Men Summer Essentials

Shopping Guide

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

Essentials to add to the kit for Mom & Dad.

This swimsuit [1] by Michael Kors is stylish while concealing in the right places. Can’t go wrong with a Panama Hat [2] by J.Crew.   Flip flops  [3] in a gold color are neutral easy to pack and versatile.  This cover up by Soft Joie [4] comes in a zig zag print and can transition easily into an outfit.  Havianas [5] flip flops are comfortable and have some of the best options for men.  Men’s board shorts [6] don’t have to be plain and boring, J.Crew offers a variety in prints.  Ray Bans [7] are always a classic and look good on most men.
