weekend gear is all about comfort. am i right? what trumps a pair of hard-working sneakers? nothing. so it’s time to dust off my white tennies and put them to the test. several stops on saturday’s to-do list included nurseries as our front porch is coming to life this week. and maybe our patio too if i get my act together. this year, i’ve staked out an area devoted to hummingbirds, but i’m still researching the best plants to attract this charming bird. any suggestions? but if you’ve walked the nursery aisles, hunting for perennials and annuals, you know a comfy pair of shoes is a must.

this pair of Boden chinos is the perfect partner with white sneakers. and who can resist stripes? this tried-and-true wardrobe staple never gets old. especially when it comes in a variety of colors. isn’t this orange rendition bright and breezy? long sleeves came in handy as the weather decided to take a nose dive. that’s when a third layer comes into play, and nothing’s better than a  sweater to chase the chill away.

many of you ask what watch to wear and when. and while the true watch aficionado in our house is mr. style every once in awhile i exchange my everyday watch for a casual look. last christmas i partnered with macy’s and chose this citizen eco-drive white leather strap that i knew would come in handy once summer rolled into town. i have to admit i’m impressed with a watch that never needs a battery. eco-drive watches generates its own power from light.
