People who are in happier moods literally see more than people who are sad or depressed. Their visual field gets bigger.
Maybe this is why we feel so much more observant when we’re traveling or on vacation!
…it’s like taking an old coat or a favorite sweater and putting patches on the elbows—it just gets better.
Jack Foxley is in the elbow patch business, and elbow patches only. Which makes him the perfect person to help revive my old winter sweaters before I pack them away till next year! It helps that his brand mark is a punchy watercolor of his adorable bulldog.

There’s nothing like the resort collections to pick you up out of the winter doldrums. Not that my winter has been too dreary here in the south so far. But I still got a little rush when the airy, summery styles started to pop up in my inbox, conjuring tropical fantasies. And this year, I actually have somewhere to wear the stuff! This weekend, I take off with the family and my best gal pal for a week in the Caribbean. I’m embracing the luxe lounge look, with a pop of neon brights for fun. Here’s the cruisewear I’m packing (some in my suitcase, some in my wish list).
1 J.CREW keeper chambray shirt, a staple. 2 SCOUT & CATALOGUE constellation clutch, for a touch of the artsy. 3 RAY BAN round wayfarer, in funky honey frames. 4 THE VAMOOSE semiprecious stone bracelets. 5 OLD NAVY cropped crochet sweater, cool but cozy in sea breezes. 6 PIAMITA nan pants, silk lounge pants. Nuf said. 7 RACHEL PALLEY cutout maxi dress, subtly sexy. 8 VICTORIA’S SECRET beach sexy bikini, to match my poolside margarita. 9 J.CREW toothpick jeans, in the season’s brights. 10 AMAZON kindle, of course. 11 KENNETH JAY LANE elephant necklace, my lucky companion always. 12 3.1 PHILIP LIM sidibe flat sandal, for island hopping.
