Anchors Away!

A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable.
~William Wordsworth
Though a few of my die hard, barefooting neighbors have already been skiing for a couple of months, Memorial Day Weekend kicks off the "unofficial" start of summer on the lake.  Barbecue, boating, fishing, and firepits everywhere make me feel like I'm on vacation without leaving the back yard.
Our boats are undergoing some much needed Spring maintenance this year, however, and they weren't ready for the weekend.  But, that didn't stop me from channeling my love of all things nautical at the office last Friday (in patriotic red, white, and blue to honor the fallen heroes we celebrate on the holiday, of course).

My favorite part of this outfit is the anchor charm necklace.  Sure, it's a fun statement piece, but it's even more special because it was given to me by a friend and former colleague.  She found it late last summer while vacationing in Michigan and knew it had to be mine. Thanks, Kim!  She clearly knows my taste and her thougtfulness makes my day all over again every time I wear it!  
Starfish earrings (Ross-Simons); Watch (Anne Klein); Shoes (Talbots)
 I may not have been able to go out on the lake over the weekend, but that didn't stop me from fully embracing the fantastic weather with a round of golf on Friday; a lakeside dinner and campfire with an old friend on Saturday;  the Indy 500 on Sunday; and another 27 holes of golf on Monday. I'm particularly excited about golf this summer, and not just because I have a long-standing, nearly obsessive love affair with classic golf shoes.  I actually feel like I'm on the verge of taking a big step forward in the consistency of my game, so I'll be playing every opportunity I get (and, yes, always in shoes that match my outfit)! 
I love these Calloway golf shoes, which I customize to match whatever I'm wearing - learn how here.
