Porch and patio

Now that the summer is in full swing, so are our various patios and porches.

Here's to outdoor living spaces!

Sunup to sundown,

Convertible weather

We love this for horsey events and going out to dinner...

Here in the mid-Atlantic area the weather has been nothing short of spectacular of late. Summer is here in all its glory, and so are the days and nights of the convertible.

I am a confirmed convertible girl. Nothing is more freeing and relaxing in the warm weather than getting around with the top down (so to speak). The wind in your hair, the sun on your face, the interchange with Mother Nature with no barriers as you go about your daily driving...nothing beats it.

We love all our convertible vehicles, each different and unique. Each serves a different purpose...

The Wrangler is such fun...great for the beach...

And this is our go-to for sporty fun and non-boating beach visits...

Topless or bust,

Beaching it

Lilly beach blanket

After two weeks of Nurse Nancy detail, Spousey whisked me away to the beach for a little R&R. Since we can't sail this summer thanks to his recent knee surgery, we will be beaching it more where he was able to hobble around on terra (somewhat) firma.

A great beach read

Moi, slightly over-baked, in JMac and Meg Carter sea dangles

Fabulous lobster dip

Annie's Anniversary

It has been faaarrr too long since I last posted, due largely to Spousey's recent bike mishap resulting in a full quad tear and major rebuild surgery. I have been in the unaccostomed position of chauffeur and Nursemaid for my 6' 4" mate. He will be in a leg brace for 3 months, so it's going to be a different kind of summer.

Oh well.

In the midst, we are celebrating another anniversary and are bound for the Delaware beaches, crutch and brace notwithstanding.

I look back on June 17th all those many years ago with great nostalgia.

Happy us,

Living well is the best revenge...and a choice we make every day. Join me as I celebrate the bounty of beauty in all its forms: fashion, homestyle, accessories and everyday I juggle the roles of Mommy, wife, daughter, dog mommy, creative director, Zumba instructor, volunteer...all with more than a passing glance backward to an old-school, classic time when style was a way of life
