While on vacation, I did something many people do-- I stepped outside my sartorial box. I wore this Panama hat (that my loving wife was gracious enough to let me borrow) about 75% of the time in New Orleans, and it felt so natural. Walking through the steamy, intimate streets of the French Quarter, not only did this hat provide shade, but it made me feel like a different person in a foreign city. I also decided to break out my white jeans for this shoot-- a pair of pants I don't wear nearly enough. These two pieces paired with my favorite colorful linen blazer made for an ideal vacation outfit.
