Easy Everyday Elevations with Nick Urteaga

Easy Everyday Elevations with Nick Urteaga

Nick, who is the founder of the creative agency Coastal Flicks, likes to focus on the seemingly small things. Thinking about things like high-quality bed sheets, or a sustainably made stylish t-shirt, can really improve your quality of life. Nick’s curated list of elevated staples can help you make small changes that’ll pay off in a big way.

“I think there are certain products in your everyday life that most people might neglect or overlook. However, small adjustments to elevate these products pay off in a bigger way than most people might respect. For instance, new, high quality bed sheets can improve a persons sleep more than I even realized. It’s the little things sometimes and that’s why these products are important to me.”

Good basics are an essential part of anyones wardrobe and that’s exactly what these shirts are from Tact & Stone. The fact that they are from recycled fabric is even more important.

A Summer Staple With a Twist

I chose the Palm Contrast shirt because it’s such a clean shirt with a little twist in the details. I’m a big fan of products that seem simple and clean but have a little twist to them. Almost giving them a bit of character setting them apart from the others.

A cause I'm into right now...

I am pushing for inclusivity especially when it comes to plus sized models and influencers. I myself am someone who isn't the average size of what you might think of for a male influencer but I hope to break that mold while building my channels. Nothing brings me more joy and encouragement then when I get messages from guys thanking me for the style tips and showing that no matter the size, you can wear anything.
