Today being Sunday means tomorrow is Monday. Spent the day with family by the pool and studying four color groups for Fall 2012. Tomorrow morning I leave at 5:40 am to get on a plane headed to NYC to present the Fall Collection to two women from Rochester, NY. Stay tuned for some photos from the big city. Hope everyone had a great weekend.
Six o’clock on Friday night hits and you need to get out of the city fast. What to pack? Two kids, two dogs, iPhone, iPad, MacBook, Canon camera, two bikinis, two pairs of sunnies, cashmere wrap because it gets cold at night, and makeup. What to wear? V-neck sweater, jeans handed down by oldest daughter, and funky Miu Miu sandals. Okay, so this is a fashion blog and I am wearing the same sweater as in another post? You betcha. I love this thing- super soft, kind of sexy, kind of see through, and kind of covered. Plus, it reminds me and feels like the sweaters I buy to give to my husband for every holiday, birthday, or anniversary. Luxurious Lora Piana sweaters that cost an ‘arm and a leg’ like my mom would say. I wear this thing all the time. It can go to dinner and I can pull weeds in it.
Why pack two bikinis and not leave them at the place we swim at? I guess because they don’t take up much room and because I still wear a bikini after six kids. As for the necklace in the photos? The stone pendant was a gift my husband brought back after a fishing trip in Montana and the chain we bought together at a little jewelry store in Sonoma at the Square. I love it.
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.
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?
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!
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.[easyrotator]erc_33_1338927943[/easyrotator]
