Thank goodness we made it to Memorial Day. While everything still feels like a mess around us, Summer still means that we get to have a little fun. It’s funny, it used to be that my favorite season was Fall…but a few years ago I became a Summer person. When I worked a corporate job, Summer was so complicated. I couldn’t be with my kids when they were free from school…I always felt torn. And in the Fall there was this relief because they went back to school. So when I started Jane Winchester, one of the most wonderful side effects was that I could be with my kids in the Summer…and PLAY! And that is exactly what we do…we wake-up early and exercise, we spend all day on the lake in and out of the boat, we play tennis and we make wonderful dinners that we eat at sunset. I love every moment of it more than you can imagine.
This issue of my Dream Closet is everything I’m lusting after for the Memorial Day weekend routine. We will be at our house on Lake Sunapee in NH and the day starts with a family boot camp. Jogging, sprinting, sit-ups, a million burpees and not nearly enough stretching. We work out right on the dock with a view of the lake. I do not work out in a large gold JW coin – it hits me in the teeth when I’m doing squat jumps! I do wear my 10k butterfly necklace 24/7 and lucky you, it is now back in production so order now!
Next up? Swimming and boating all day.It’scasual but I LOVEswimsuits andcover-upsso I go a little wild shopping. In thepastI haveworn a bikini but eek at age 47I ammoving to theone-piece this Summer. Thank goodness there are a million chicoptions.I’malso a sucker for a great straw hat and have stacks!I do wear jewelry with my swim outfits. As you know, ourOriginal coins are all silver plated andyou arenot supposed toget them wet or covered in sunscreen BUTdo it anyway,wewillre-plate it for you if you wear yours to death. We considerita badge of a life well led!
For cocktails and dinner, I like to ‘get dressed’. It just feels niceto hang up the bathing suit and put something on that is easybut colorful and pulled together. I love to set the table, pickflowers and eat with the lake by our side. Can’t you literallysmell the grill and taste the corn on the cob? Can’t WAIT!Everything I wear in the Summer goes with goldand I likenecklaces piled and chandelier earrings…stacks ofbracelets…they all look amazing with a tan.
Ahhhpracticality. I believe that wearing a mask is one of thekindest things we can do for one another and they are acourtesy I think we owe our neighbor. So here are some cuteones to help make up for how annoying they are! What goeswith a facemask? Earrings!
