Last day of school and we celebrate by youngest daughter bringing home five baby chicks from science class. This is a good thing as Mr. Fox played hunger games and snacked on nine of our hens from country house property. Informed night owl and DJ second son that if there is a rooster in the bunch, he will be on the receiving end for the morning wake-up call pet. He promptly replied that a “cockle doodle do” would be a great reminder that it’s time for him to hit the sack. Motto of my story? Always wear your good new clothes. Every day. Why not? My Look Book says the color of my sweater is “Pale Banana.” I’m thinking it just might be “Chick Yellow.”

As this is my fashion and lifestyle blog I had to a post about my all time, best ever, be with them always, men in my life. These photos were snapped at the amazing Pleasant Point Inn in Bristol, RI- the kind of place that serves a delicious hot breakfast on the ocean bay terrace and cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at five o’clock in the living room. Sweet. Bocce, anyone?

You work all day and then have 7:30 pm dinner reservations. Daughter one takes brand new blazer, daughter two takes brand new jeans, cuff bracelet, and clutch. Oh, that’s what clothes are for! So hurry and slip on  a few outfits that just don’t make it and settle for cream jeans and crew neck sweater. Thank goodness for uniforms. And exercise. So that you and your daughter’s can share jeans. ha.

 

push-ups are good for you

Three sets of twelve. Every day if you can. Gotta love them. Love this jacket too with the push up sleeve. Takes jacket wearing down a notch. Now back to work; searching for a new seller in upstate New York. Anyone out there?

what not to wear at commencement

[easyrotator]erc_65_1338926281[/easyrotator]Can’t believe I am putting this out there but here goes: unless you are the 18 year old girl with the really great bod do not wear short shorts to commencement. Ditto any excessive cleavage. Or stilettos which will invariably sink into any grass you need to walk on.

Do think about wearing a dress. Maybe in a color or pastel or floral. Preferably not black. If you need a heel consider a wedge.

I wore the Worth New York Apple Martini Ponte Empire Sheath.

Congratulations and enjoy.

So proud of you Linnie!

political fundraiser and wine & food night out

with 2 Comments

Channeling Jackie is always a sure bet when headed out to a political fundraiser. Wine and food followed with my husbands Chaine group so I thought this was a great dress to wear for a Thursday night out. I love the collar, color, and the fabric. In my mind it is a super great dress for this kind of night.

lunch at Robert Mondavi Winery

One of the highlights of our trip to the Napa Valley was a fantastic luncheon at Robert Mondavi Winery. We were there as part of a group my husband belongs to, Confrerie De La Chaine Des Rotisseurs. The food was incredible and the vertical tasting of the 2008 Robert Mondavi Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and the 1998 Robert Mondavi Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve was beyond. Which one do you prefer?

Big question was what to wear? White skinnies again to the rescue, Christian Louboutin flat sandals and a linen blouse had me feeling comfortable and confident. Check out my new friend from Texas and her color block look! Even she had on skinnies with her Crush Linen Jacket and Tank.

One of the best parts? Margrit Mondavi greeting her guests and telling us that there are many more old winemakers than there are old doctors. Salut!
