Well constructed portfolio. Don't actually think you need to change anything but here are some thoughts to consider.

You might want to consider an allocation to REIT's. (or maybe that is part of your stocks?)

Your stocks should also be diversified amoung large, small, growth and value. (I'm guessing they already are based on how well thought out the overall portfolio seems to be).

Convertible's is also something to consider. (Again maybe this is already part of your stocks).

Stocks of commodity producers / miners (Royal Gold, Exxon, etc.) can react to inflation like the actual commodity while having a better long term historic return than the commodity.
