Our first seasonal collection launched this week and it is all about squeezing the last bit of sun and sand out of summer. I don’t know about you but I’ve noticed more and more that there is a bit of “fall creep” happening around here these days. Back to school ads on television, fall sweaters and boots in the stores and I’m pretty sure I saw Halloween candy at CVS yesterday. I for one am not done with summer just yet!
Here in New England we have a short fall and long winter ahead of us so I am going to soak up as much of what is left of summer as possible. For me, that usually means packing up the old Defender and heading down to Nantucket with my husband and the pups. I’ve been spending time on Nantucket since I was born and it remains one of the most magical places I know. Once on island, we fill our picnic basket full of cheese, charcuterie, oysters and wine and head to the beach. Friends join us for cocktails and we rarely head home until the sun has set and we’ve had one last swim. Late summer days like that are the inspiration behind our summer collection.
So here’s to a few more beach days, a few more glasses of rosé and a few more summer memories.
