What I wore: Summer Wear (Puerto Rico Edition)

Happy Friday! Since I’m still reminiscing about my recent trip to Puerto Rico, I’ve decided to share what I wore on this vacation and some tips for where to find some great casual button downs for the dapper penniless. I look good and still save those extra pennies for the beautiful destinations I’m dreaming of.

A DapperPenniless Guide to Puerto Rico

I recently went to Puerto Rico and hands down it was one of the best vacations I have ever been on!  If you haven't been there you are missing out! This trip was a gift to my partner and I for all the hard work we have been up to over the last few months. It also turned out that a couple of friends and coworkers would be in Puerto Rico at the same time. We grouped up which made for double the fun!! I can't wait to go back and here are my reasons why...

DapperPenniless Goes for the Cut and Gets an Experience

I hope this can help anyone who is looking for great cut with even better vibes!
