The nautical look is in this summer, and for good reason!  For dads who want to keep it casual and classic, we love  a nautical striped tee with Sperry’s salt-washed Halyard canvas shoe. Throw on a light weight jacket for those breezy summer nights and you are officially nautical by nature.

9. “The best time to begin keeping a journal is whenever you decide to.”

– Hannah Hinchman, A Life In Hand

One of the best things about summer are the memories you create with people you love. There’s something about the sunshine and the blooming nature that makes summer great.  Why not take a moment and jot down some of these wonderful memories in a journal? Or, turn some of those silly pictures from your last vacation into a scrapbook and add little notes.  Whatever you choose, it will be great to look back on the memories that you created this summer.

The foundation for Rack Room Shoes was established in 1920 in Salisbury, North Carolina by Phil Levinson, and later passed on to his son-in-law, Mort Lerner. The period from 1920 until 1984 was one of modest growth. However, in 1984, the 22-store company was purchased by The Deichmann Group, a Germany- based shoe retailer, beginning a period of accelerated growth and infrastructure modernization. By 1990, Rack Room Shoes was operating 100 stores and just 4 years later the 200th store opened. In 1995, the company relocated its United States headquarters to a 72,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Charlotte, North Carolina. Over the next ten years the Rack Room Shoes chain doubled in size, with locations in 24 states from New Jersey to the tip of Florida to the California borders.
