Tunics, Tory and a Permanent Vacation

People wonder about my love for Lilly Pulitzer and Tory Burch. This is no accident. I like designers who make me feel like life is a constant vacation. Warm weather, fabulous cocktails and the perfect tunic. I can remember as a child, I watched Carol Burnett and would here about this place California. I knew I just had to live there. Who wouldn't want to live in a place with palm trees and Carol Burnett!

My love of vacations also came from watching The Love Boat. Each week another port of call, sailing out to see with Isaac making a cocktail and Barbie Benton as a show girl. Good times.


Later in high school I would wait until my parents were out and turn the heat up in the house to 77 degrees (lucky 7). I would put on my bikini and lather on the Coppertone. I couldn't help myself. I wanted to be in a Sunkist commercial, water skiing my days away!

Then in college in Florida, I became spoiled going to classes in flip flops and handing in papers stained with sun tan lotion. We would lay out between classes in the Theta house courtyard and listen  to "Kokomo" (Bermuda, Bahama, Come on pretty Mama...). So you see I am supposed to be wearing bright colors, tunics and my Bonanos.

This weekend is Mothers Day and in honor of that I am posting an interview with Mrs. Tory Burch. I am so proud and honored and cannot wait to share it with you! I will be posting it on Mothers Day as the start to Mothers Day week!

So exciting, can't wait for the interview!!! I adored The Love Boat. My parents would let my sister and I stay up late to watch it and it was such a treat. Good thing we didn't understand any of the double entendres.
