wanders, looks and news

  • slip ons fall looks 2020

    The styling for this fall is inspired by the mood of our favorite hole-in-the-wall drink and dine spots around the world. Never to stiff nor to loose. Authentic. The sweet spot in ambiance, style and service.
  • vegas vintage day

    I would have never thought I'd be motivated to review a wander in Vegas. Its just too overdone, exposed and commercial. But the elusive downtown area is another story. Its overlooked by most and didnt-make-it-again by the intended. Myself included over the years of visits. If you're looking for a vintage/retro weekend getaway, or an add on day to your Vegas visit, here's an idea.
  • isla holbox one of the last

    I had been eyeing Isla Holbox ever sense I did my roadtrip around the area; it was exactly what I hoped for. A gritty but refined get lost kind of an escape. And not for everyone which is what keeps it what it is.
  • a day in la

    Head back downtown to a room at one of downtown's newest hotels: Hotel Figueroa. A unbeatable value, with on-point styling and one-of-few hotels with a functioning pool, bar and restaurant in downtown. A true oasis in the concrete jungle of Downtown LA.
  • slip ons summer looks 2020

    For summer we will always transition in a spring item friendly way. So many of the spring looks items will get some continued use with a summer take. And that summer take is an imaginary one this year.
  • puerto vallarta old town adventure

    I had been to PV several times before but this time I felt like I did it right. First, you have to stay in Old Town, you have to. You really miss the charm of PV without. And just popping-in-and-out from the hotel zone doesn't provide what your looking for. You need to walk through the vibrant neighborhood after dinner, at one of many great restaurants, on the way back to your hotel. And you defiantly need to wake up there early, grab a fresh cup and walk the charm.
  • austin weird for a weekend

    I came across a great fare so I finally grabbed Austin for a weekend. And right before the Coronavirus but the itinerary can still be enjoyed with minimal effects. Austin's been quite the talk for years now so I was curious to visit. The weather was also perfect for a walk around downtown and a short hike outside the city. So off with a quick flight.
  • hanoi bucket list check

    The first thing I noticed as I taxied away from Hanoi Airport was the smell. In a good way. It was a tropical smokey scent and it excited me. Almost like the great memories you have of campfires but in a tropical foreign land. I knew in that moment that this trip would be different. It would be a gladly embraced and accepted adventure. I arrived to my hotel, The Light Hotel, late in the evening so I just reviewed my tour itinerary with the kind staff, got situated in my room and had dinner on the rooftop.
  • knoxville smoky mountain retreat

    I came rolling into to town through the open fields of the freeway. A nice introduction to the area before entering the city; one I had always wanted to see being raised on the west coast. From the open fields to a sprawling little city with its downtown perched right along the Tennessee River.
  • yosemite at last

    After all the wandering around I did in California it took me to move out to return to visit Yosemite. Go figure...and glad as heck I finally did. With all the exposure of travel these days I find myself, and I think I'm not alone, questioning a visit to one of the classics. As opposed to finding something new. And the point is if you haven't been it is new. So I got going.
  • buoyed's patent pending design collaboration

    buoyed is pleased to announce its first design collaboration in partnership with DSWoodworks to offer a patent pending coffee table design. First of it's kind foot hammock coffee table.
  • todos santos leaves an impression

    A very-very good one. Like most I had done many getaways to Cabo over years. And like most always overlooking TD. But this time I didn't. I wanted something off the typical path of Cabo and just as easy. Yet still safe, comfortably accommodating and relaxing. TD is everything Cabo isn't, it's still low-key.
