Summer Style Secrets: Summer Is A Verb


 What would a "Summer Style Secrets Series" be without someone who loves Summer so much, that she considers it a lifestyle.  A lady after my own heart, this week's "secrets" are from Alice of
Sue from The Zhush blog asked me to share a few of my summer style secrets. Well, they hardly qualify as "secrets" but, generally fall more under the headings of "calling card", "must have" or "stolen from someone more stylish than I"...
It's not officially Spring til I pull out my Chanel Christalle. I have been wearing this perfume during the Spring and Summer months since I was in high school. The bff, one sister and a niece now follow the same tradition...
I am gaga for Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Creme. I have tried everything, and I mean everything, under the sun to keep my heels from revealing their sockless, toes in the sand, too much running to get skinny existence and this stuff is like manna from heaven...
Aide-de-camp Lizzie and I are huuuge Cool Change fans. I'm telling you, I have been stopped by grey haired women and teenagers alike while crossing the dunes desperate to find out where I got my cover ups...
If you are lucky enough to be in the vicinity of the East Hampton Calypso, they hands down have theee best selection of Cool Change styles and colors. Otherwise, unfortunately, it's slim pickings online. Guess that just makes them all the more covetable...
For years I always had a Lancôme Juicy Tube in Miracle on my person at all times. Then I read that Elle Macpherson swore by Berry Bold sooo out went the Miracle and in came the Berry Bold...
Those blessed with a Hamptons zip code get the Hamptons magazine for free but, we hoi polloi have to subscribe. It's a gooood beach day when I have a new issue in my pink and green Bean tote...
Kindness of Sue at The Zhush for inviting me to contribute to her Summer Style Series. Once again, someone must not be manning the velvet rope. I'm usually more of a taker, not so much the giver, in any department containing the word "style"...XXOO

  32. Well done and nice to meet a lovely new blogger. I had no idea anyone who lived in the Hamptons received the magazine for free - a simple little pleasure to find in your mailbox - just another gorgeous perk for having the means to live there. What a dream. =)

  34. Funny, I brought a bottle of Chanel Cristalle to the hospital when my sons were born....and it brings back such vivid memories of when they were little. Now they tower over me, and I still love the luxury of good scents....
    all four seasons. I love summer is a verb, she keeps me entertained and inspired.
