Many men prefer to dress in t-shirts and khakis or jeans, they will go to their closet and pull out a plain Hanes tee and “getting dressed” is done. I am married to a man who dresses like this and prefers that he wear a pattern on his shirt. So I designed a line of shirts for men. Here is a menswear tee that I refer to as “gone fishing”
This men’s tee is a loose-fitting shirt that is perfect for men who are active. It is made from 100% cotton and is a heavier-weight, not paper-thin but a good weight that appeals to men who prefer a shirt that is more durable. This shirt is perfect for working out in the yard or for wearing to go fishing.
My husband likes this quality-made shirt with the double-needle stitching on the sleeve, neck, and bottom. The shirt wears well and is one of my husband's favorites.
My husband weighs 152 and is 5’11. He wears a medium and the fit is loose and comfortable. We laundered this shirt in cold water, permanent press cycle and dried on low heat. Took out of the dryer when the shirt was damp, shook it and put on a hanger. It did not shrink and looks as good as new.

Summer is finally here and it is time to put away the closed-toe shoes and slip on a pair of flip flops. Flip flops are the summer shoe that makes casual outfits look super cute.
Recently I was shopping for a gift and knew that the recipient wanted a pink floral pattern flip flop. I found many floral strap flip flops but none came in the pink color. The gift had to be a pink flower pattern to go with her beach outfits.
Zazzle has summer fun flip flops in a variety of pink designs. The 100% rubber shoe are not like the ones you find at the drug store, instead, they have a thick insole with more cushion for comfort. The straps on this shoe are thin and made for a women’s food.
You can choose between two different footbeds and from a variety of strap colors. Buy the flip-flop shown or you can make your own from uploading a photograph. There is a flip-flop for everyone, kids, men, and women. If you are heading for the beach, lake or even the pool this summer then check out the flip flops sold at Zazzle.
I bought this pink floral flip flop because the pink color was exactly the shade that was desired and the print offered a good balance of the white color.
Shipping was quick, received in under ten days. Now the recipient of this shoe has a narrow foot but told me that she could size down from a 7 ½ to a 7 medium and it will fit fine. I ordered the 7 and hoped it would fit since no widths were offered. This particular shoe runs wide and is not intended for someone with a narrow to medium foot. I think it would perfect for someone with a true medium to wide foot.

The Women's Bella Canvas white shirt with red raglan sleeves and red ladybug design is super cute for summer outfits. You can wear with jeans a denim skirt. This shirt looks comfortable and super cute but does run small.
I bought the shirt to mix and match with several outfits in my wardrobe. The product about did say that the shirt ran small and that you should size up so instead of buying the medium I bought the large. The shirt arrived and it was super cute, looked better than on the website but the size large was a form-fitted medium and I really did not want a shirt to hug my curves.
I prefer a shirt that is not as tight, one that is comfortable to wear while I work in the garden or other summer activities. On a hot day, the last thing that I want is a cotton shirt that feels tight.
In as much as I love the style of this Bella shirt, I did not want to size up to an extra-large. I feel the cut of this shirt is not right for what I need and have decided to return to Zazzle.com and buy another style. I saw that this ladybug design is available in several other styles and I found a short-sleeved tee that I like.
The shirt that I bought says that it is preshrunk and that it ran true to size. I decided to size up and bought the large.
The fit on this shirt is better. Not boxy, but not as slim as a fit as the raglan sleeve baseball jersey style shirt. Know that if you buy a shirt at Zazzle and it is too small or too large, you usually can find another style shirt with the same design.

I have been shopping at local stores and online for workout outfits and have not found anything that I liked because the tops that go with the legging prints are too skimpy and I would prefer a cotton t-shirt with the same design as the legging.
If I were younger say in my mid-twenties and not married the body-hugging activewear tops to show off your abs would be okay but I am married and this type of clothing is not what I am shopping for.
I found legging outfits online at Walmart.com and Amazon.com but the active-wear tops/leggings were plain, solid colors and no patterns. Then I learned that zazzle sells active-wear and I found that the leggings and the matching shirts and tank tops were fabulous.

What I like about Zazzle is you can shop for activewear legging and shirts that have been designed by a variety of artists or you can make your own by uploading a photograph. This means that the colors in your top will match your leggings perfectly.
About Zazzle Leggings
When you buy a Zazzle legging you are not only getting a work of art, you are also buying a unique style, and a legging that is extremely comfortable.
Know that the leggings are made by hand and are printed before they are sewn. The leggings are quality made products that I know you will love.
I have worn a lot of leggings and many of them looked nice but were uncomfortable. This is not the case with Zazzle leggings, the fabric is medium weight heavier than most leggings, however, it does stretch to fit your body comfortably.
Those other store brand leggings become stretched out after a workout, or a day of shopping at the mall and they never regained their shape. You will be happy to know that leggings do keep their shape and when you launder them they look new when you follow the laundry directions, then your leggings will not fade. I laundered in the delicate cycle then hung to dry.
You can wear zazzle activewear leggings to the gym, yoga class or for an everyday casual outfit. The legging outfits can be dressed up or down, worn with flip-flops, sneakers, or heels for a fashion legging outfit.
See black leather-look legging dressed up. This legging fashion look is fabulous.
If you want a unique legging; leather look, snakeskin or other prints for exercise and beyond then shop at Zazzle for designer looks.
