Peter in Provo

“Provo” is the common name for Providenciales, one of the Turks and Caicos islands where hubby and I just returned from.  It’s no secret that planning a vacation wardrobe is fun for me, as it probably is for most gals.  But for most guys?  I would bet not.  Maybe a last minute trip to the mall for a few tee shirts, a new swimsuit.  Well.  Evidently not my guy!  After several years with me (Haha, poor Peter…) he now enjoys this planning too – and it shows.getting jeep Always arrive in style! We had just arrived, picking up our Jeep rental for the week. No gym sneakers, no baggy jeans, no cargos – Peter changed into shorts on the plane, wearing a chambray shirt with Converse sneakers by John Varvatos. DSC06284x Love love love the look of a shirt with a swimsuit!  Sure, teeshirts can be fine, but if you want to really look cool, go for the shirt.  Be sure it is a casual shirt, not one you would wear to work. Swimsuit by JCrew.  This is at Bugaloos beach bar, one of our favorite stops in Turks and Caicos.IMG_6961x Another great shirt and swimsuit combo, both new from JMcLaughlin. Peter wore the linen shirt out to dinner two nights before, so throwing in on at the pool gave it extra milage. Notice the skull and crossbones on the swim trunks – a fun twist on the preppy look.DSC06150xAt 57, isn’t Peter in great shape? That said, paying attention to the style and fit of swim trunks makes a big difference.  Avoid the overly baggy and get rid of the outdated suits that hit mid-calf.  JCrew has a nice selection in stores now, and this one is by Sundek is one of my faves.DSC06317x Nice sweater Peter! Where did you get that??  “Nordstrom, it’s Tommy Bahama, but it doesn’t look it, and it’s not an old man fit.”   No it’s not.  🙂    Yeah, we have these conversations.

On our last night, Peter looked handsome in a John Varvatos shirt, deliberately wrinkled and fitted enough so it looks good untucked; worn with Rag and Bone sail cloth pants and Robert Wayne loafers (no socks of course)…What? Ohh, you want to know about my outfits?   Coming soon!

  • What a gorgeous couple! You are right, Peter is super handsome and so fit looking. It looks like you both had a wonderful vacation – thanks for sharing! I wish I could have escaped for a bit away from all that mucky ice in NYC.

  • I’m slowly but surely getting my husband into more fitted styles. He does pretty well when planning a vacation wardrobe. I have bought all of his recent swim trunks from J. Crew- not as baggy. Love Peter’s style!

  • When I read the headline, I wondered, “What is Peter doing in Provo, Utah?” LOL!
