High Maintenance or Low Maintenance?

Which one are you?

I consider myself low maintenance. I color my own hair, take care of my own nails, clean my own homes, although I do have help with my gardens (or yards as they are called over here).

My wardrobe is probably fairly high maintenance, I am constantly at the dry cleaners, although I do have the LG steam washing machine which can handle a lot of delicates. Probably pays for itself in the amount saved at the dry-cleaners!!!

So which one are you?

I chose to do a lot of things for myself as it makes me feel better about the shocking amount I spend on clothes. Would you rather spend your money on feeling pampered or on material things??? Let me know girls.

What to wear on July 4th

Do you have your outfit picked out yet?

We are flying to Kansas City for the weekend to pick our daughter up from a Duke TIP summer camp, and will be getting together with some old friends.

Wherever you spend your holiday, I hope you have fun and enjoy some spectacular fireworks.

I will be wearing this.....


It's the Bidi dress by Lilly Pulitzer.

But I have other ideas for anyone who is still looking for the perfect red/white/blue outfit.

I saw these ribbon flip-flops in my Talbots store and they had a red/white/blue ribbon...so cute


Or, for a more casual look, how about this T-shirt from Tory Burch with a pair of dark blue jeans and some white converse.

Landscaping at the Lake House

I have been busy for the past few months trying to finish up the lake house landscaping.

I'm not done yet but here are some pics of the progress so far.






All of the flowering trees and plants have white flowers. I have always wanted to try this but never had the right property. It was such a great decision, it makes everything so calm and peaceful.

Lilly Tunics

I will allow that Hopsy may have more Lilly shifts than I do, but I think I may have her beat on the tunic. I am a bit of an addict.



I have maybe 15 more that I could not find an image of.

What do you think? Do I win the tunic crown girls!!!!!
