Welcome to the South

About 2 hours south of the capital, lies the city of Jacmel. Known for its yearly carnaval and miniature bananas, the city offers a typical Haitian province experience to tourists with its sandy beaches and artisan presence.

Although it was a quick weekend trip, getting away from the dynamism of Port-au-Prince and changing scenery was much needed.

Lo and I spent the weekend at the beach in the beautiful Cotes des Arcadins in Haiti.

Saturday night was the 3rd annual WET party where girls modeled in sexy bikinis and cover-ups. Despite the mass of people present, we managed to spot some very risqué, yet elegant beachwear: a deep-V one-piece suit with cut out sides, a crochet knitted back monokini, a strapless animal print, many colorful Brazilian bikinis, and some very sexy sheer beach tunics.

Our outfits for the beach?

Black shorts, white vintage tank, red espadrilles and black Fedora hat
Cut-off denim shorts, sailor laced back tee with black patent leather flip flops

Here are a few pictures of ” île de la Gonâve” (La Gonave island) where we spent the day on Sunday.

The perks of living on an island: tropical sun, great friends, good laughs and the gorgeous Caribbean sea … Awesome weekend.

MEN MUST HAVE: BEACH WEEKEND

Summer may be over but it does not mean the weekends at the beach are!
Here are 9 items every man must have while enjoying the sun:

1- A Pair of bright and colorful swim trunks

2- For daring men: Try shorter and tighter swim trunks in navy blue. The ladies will love it!

3- White Tops: Try a classic White linen shirt or a White V-neck Tee.

4- A Fun Duffel

5- Fun and Sexy Shades: you can never go wrong with metal aviators!

6- Ditch the flip-flops and get a pair of fun colorful rubber loafers!

7- Straw Fedora Hats: Perfect Beach Accessory

8- Towel for two: Get a “Drap de plage” for you and your special someone

9- Suncare: This is probably the most important item on the list. Get a waterproof continuous spray sunscreen like Coppertone Sport 30SPF and after hanging in the sun all day, remember to use after sun care!

Have a GREAT beach weekend guys!
