Hedge New York’s tennis & golf wear are some of my most cherished things to wear both on and off the tennis courts (or golf courses). Their feminine, timeless silhouettes, unwavering commitment to quality, and their comfortable performance fabrics have earned them a place on the courts no matter who I’m playing against.
When we lived in Michigan, August was still an extremely hot, dry, and definitely “summery” month. In Connecticut, on the other hand, it seems as though early August means the first signs of fall, with more rain, slightly cooler temperatures, more fall flowers like asters, cosmos, dahlias, and even sunflowers already in full bloom. I’ve even seen a few leaves on the trees around us beginning to change colors to rich reds, oranges, and golds. Since it seems that either this is an unusual year or autumn comes earlier here in Connecticut, we’ve decided to embrace the impending change of seasons by visiting beautiful Buttonwood Farms Sunflower Gardens.

I love making my own cold-pressed juices at home, but when I don’t have the time to wash, prep, and juice my own produce, or most recently when I had one arm in a cast and couldn’t easily juice for myself, these are the next best thing to freshly pressed juices made with my own two hands. Their juices are USDA-certified organic, vegan, naturally gluten-free, and full of essential vitamins, trace minerals, and other nutrients, which have helped my skin regain its even tone and inner glow, despite all that’s happened in my life lately.

This red maxi dress with ruffle sleeve details and smocking at the waist is not only colorful, but it’s perfect for special occasions, holiday celebrations or get-togethers with loved ones. Not only is this dress so pretty, easy to wear, and flattering, it’s also a way to look effortlessly sophisticated while staying cool in the heat.
High summer generally means I wear a lot of white pieces, and lots of breezy, gauzy linen pieces to beat the heat. It’s generally warmer here in Connecticut than it would be if we still lived in Michigan, so being cool and staying safe in the sun is more important to me than ever before. I hope Summer Essentials Volume 5 inspires you to pick out some new favorite pieces for warm weather, or to revisit some of your wardrobe favorites, and get out to enjoy the sunshine!
