The Season Has Started

As far as I'm concerned, the warm weather seasons have started - we've had mid 90s weather for a couple of weeks - no rain, parched lawns already.  To be totally honest, spring and summer gear came out of the back of the closet beginning of April.

These images scream relaxing summer fun, parties, dining, dating, weddings, vacations - It's all ahead of us.  Enjoy yourself!

Enjoy the Memorial Day weekend - Live, Laugh, and Love.

Young and stylish

I saw a post this afternoon on tumblr regarding this paticular photo.  The tumblr post took issue with this young man's hair style but praised the classic kit he is wearing.

I just had a VERY SIGNIFICANT BIRTHDAY this week, (and in retrospect) I would like to think this is how young men today will dress as they go about their work and social engagements.  This is not a perfect world - I know that it won't be THIS perfect for all men, but still, I'd like to see more young men follow this model.  I think the hair works well for this fellow, and is not for everyone.

Even at my ripe age - I may just pull this look together for Friday.  (I'll check the YP for a wig store  ;) )

Lacoste belt

Picked up this Lacoste belt today in Marshalls.  I guess they really do get great items.

A madras accessory

I picked up this madras jacket at Stein Mart a couple of weeks ago - it's got a nice combination of colors in the weave and it's very light.  The weather here in central Florida is hot and humid already (my new lawn is taking a beating!).  So I've decided it's searsucker and madras season no matter what the calendar reads.

While driving around town last week, I spotted this 1972 Triumph TR6.  I used to own one (a red 1974), so I stopped and inquired about it.  It's in great condition, very clean.  I realized however this is not the kind of car you drive around Orlando in the summer - no A/C, just top down.  It would be fun on evening rides (or at midnight) rather than daytime heat. It would probably be more fun to toul around during the cooler months - say November through March.

Me, the TR, and the new madras jacket (OK, wife and dog can come along too).

I do like it though ------
