Fashionably Fit Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Growing up I always dreaded going to P.E. class. Not just because it required physical fitness, but it meant I had to slip out of my cute, well thought out wardrobe and throw on smelly gym clothes. Still to this day I often avoid exercising just because I do not want to give up looking stylish for feeling comfortable when I go for a run or head to yoga. The greatest thing to me is when there are pants and clothes that are made to run and sweat in, but somehow you still feel awesome when you walk to the store in them or meet up a friend for lunch. These tie dye print pants not only make your booty look good while walking around, but they are perfect and unique for who don’t want to give up their personal style for a little exercise.

Take A Walk. Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

One of the greatest ways to have an adventure is to simply walk. It’s hard to enjoy the world around you when it’s passing by at 60 miles per hour. Sometimes in life we need to just get out and take a walk. Whether that walk is in a city, down a country road, or on the sand, few things are more enjoyable than truly stopping to “smell the roses”. Whether those “roses” are the smells from corner pastry shops, the rustling of flowers, or the splashing of tide pools, taking the time to go enjoy your surroundings is so refreshing. Getting to enjoy life as it surrounds you, not as you look on from behind a glass window. This past weekend I took advantage of my summer schedule to enjoy a hike in the Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach.

The SWELL Guide: Gifts for Guys Edition

You already bought him a cordless drill, a universal remote, and a shaving kit…now what?. They rarely ask for new clothes, don’t like to shop, and contently dress in the same outfit/style they’ve worn since high school. So instead of coercing them into a full wardrobe overhaul, follow the SWELL gift guide to upgrade his look with these subtly awesome looks.

1. Casual is king, especially during holidays at home. Anything lined in the popular sherpa faux-fur is perfect for lounging around the neighborhood, watching groms play with their new wheels. Or great to throw on for that frosty dawn surf-check. Swell carries dozens of these toasty threads that he’s sure to put on before unwrapping the next present. See Swell’s sherpa selections here

2. Inspired by true watermen, surfing icons, and pioneers of the sport, Quiksilver’s Waterman Collection brings back the inherent quality of classics. If your man prefers skinny jeans and bling, this isn’t the ticket. This gear embodies the outdoor spirit with new-school function and comfort. Just tell him that Tom Carroll, Peter Mel, and Mark Healy developed this line while exploring the rugged Pacific North West.

3. You can’t fail with surf videos. Every guy still has that teenage nostalgia to get his stoke fix and mind-surf, letting out the occasional terrets-like outbursts. This works especially well for the lady trying to get her man off the couch and into a healthier body-mass index. Just look in the garage to see what kind of board he has, then peruse the video previews of SWELL’s dvd page to see which one fits his style. Still not sure, take a tip from Morgan, SWELL’s gear guru for his top 5 dvd picks here.

4. Lastly, a simple accessory is appropriate for any friend, husband, or partner. A stylish leather Nixon belt can hide that tattered waistband on his favorite pants. Or, upgrade your favorite nephew from a velcro wallet, to a real deal leather pocket book. SWELL has 100s of socks, boxers, shades, hats, and more, so get your stocking stuffers and more before its too late at SWELL.
