I’m obsessed with cotton slub tees in general. And when I found out about Devereux’s new slim-fit chinos, made from Japanese twill and added stretch properties for versatility and comfort, I though “…that sound dope”. I’m always looking for a new denim alternative to mix things up. What’s great about Devereux’s new slim-fit chinos, aside from the super high quality material, is the cut, is that they are cut like joggers with a tapered leg. So they look great with sneakers and give you more of that edgy streetwear look. Find out how to create this outfit, my take on the color trends, and my advice on which sizes to order from Devereux.

Wearing dark green is one of my favorite parts of Fall fashion. Now that we’re fully in the fall to winter fashion season, I’m diving into my favorite colors and textures for cooler weather. Just because it’s hot in Miami doesn’t mean you should always dress like it’s the middle of the summer. Wait, what do I mean by that? I mean in Fall and Winter, even if you’re still wearing shorts and short sleeves, you can bring some fall/winter style into your outfits. Wearing some dark green is a great place to start. Find out how to create the look and read more about my approach to fall/winter style in warm weather places like Miami.

Length is key to finding the right size swim trunks for men. Most brands write the length of the swim trunks in the product title or description. The style of cut is the other key factor. Mass produced brands tend to do a wider open cut, where designer brands will offer a more tailored cut. The thing with the designer tailored cuts is that they do not work for every body type so you have to try them on. At Onia for example, they make some cuts that fit me like a glove and others that just don’t work for my slim body type because I don’t have a belly.

I had no idea how good these running shoes are… When Reebok ask me to try out their new Floatride Ultraknit running sneakers, I was pretty excited but I wasn’t sure what to expect. I ran track in college and still run all the time as part of my workouts. I always liked Reebok as a brand, and I’ve owned a bunch of their basketball and casual sneakers, but I’ve never worn their running shoes. The game has changed. Read more to get my take on why these are the must have shoes for everyday road running.

Planning the right outfits can literally make or break your trip. If you’re anything like me, you probably put off packing until the last minute, but think about for weeks. My trick to getting over the packing procrastination is outfit planning, and agile agenda planning. By agile agenda, I mean I plan a list of Alf the things I want to do. These are my goals. But I don’t assign them to a specific day for each thing. This way I can be more in the moment and live according to real life conditions like weather, how I feel in the moment, and meeting new people. Once I know what I want to do, I can plan my outfits for each thing. For example, on my last trips to Portugal, I know I was going to do a few key things. Going to Lagos, a beach town in the Algarve, going to Lisbon and touring the Palacio do Pena, and going to Porto to explore the historical center. (This is an abbreviation of my actual plans, to illustrate my point.) The beach, the palace, and the city centers all have different vibes, colors, and appropriateness levels that I considered while planning what to wear. I needed to put to together some versatile outfits quickly and within a budget. So I went to the Express Factory Outlet. Open this post for an exclusive promo code.

When your in a rush, just wear all black. Getting ready and out the door quickly was definitely worth it to get to explore this epic medieval castle in Galicia Spain. I feel like I’m on the set of Game of Thrones for real.

Óbidos Castle is one of the best things to see in Portugal. It’s pretty much on the way from Lisbon to Porto, so if you’re driving, you need to make this stop. I wore a comfortable all linen outfit for this Instaworthy photo spot.
