Shelter Island


Now that summer has hit its stride, I’m in my element … specifically, spending as much time as possible in Shelter Island.  My family and I spend most weekends there enjoying the slower pace and the subtle sensations of summer — the smell of lavender from the porch, the salty air on a stony beach, and the variations of blue of the hydrangeas (the blues seem especially vivid this year!).

In quiet times, my nose is usually in a book with a glass of wine nearby, and my style is especially simple  — a cotton jumpsuit always feels right, and my husband and I share a love of espadrilles.
