As soon as I came upon this mini Polo tote I knew I would be putting it out for the Easter Bunny to fill with pretty, colorful treats. After Easter it’ll find its way to my desk to hold incoming mail or pens and such.  I found  it at an RL outlet store on our trip last week.  

In case the Easter Bunny overlooks our house this year, since we already had our spring break and family time, I decided to help him out a little.
When I saw a certain pair of earrings on the Beverly Hills housewives, I went on the equivalent of an Easter egg hunt to find them.  I loved the opaque qualities of the translucent hue of the green chalcedony.  I found out they were the designs of Kyle Chan, a Los Angeles designer.
The green chalcedony reminds me of the ocean with foam rising up when a wave passes over the sand.  They speak summer to me.

And the blue chalcedony? Gorgeous. Like the color of spring skies.

And unlike jellybeans, jewelry has no calories!
Happy Easter, Happy Spring and Happy Passover!

Lauren G. Adams is once again on the inside track with her enamel and stirrup charm bangle. Odds on favorite is always Ralph Lauren with something classic yet edgy. Giddy Up!

The Trad Guy

I’ve always been a sucker for a guy in a pair of khakis, a long sleeve RL button-down shirt, tasseled loafers, a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers and the scent of Polo. This package is classic and timeless. This is Mr. P. M. and I have been raising two boys to fill his Sperry Top-Siders to continue the tradition. These three men have been ideal participants simply by possessing a Y chromosome which means they will wear practically anything that I… [Read More]

Toting For A Good Cause.

I just love Nantucket and since I’ve written about my love affair before I’ll spare you the wonderful details but whenever I find something related to my special island it captures my attention. This Ralph Lauren tote is a collaboration between RL and the Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) to restore the Gardiner’s Compass Rose Mural which is from the 1930’s and happens to be located on the side of the RL store. All proceeds from the sale of the tote… [Read More]
