Hello friends, WINDING DOWN FROM SUMMER, I CAN ONLY THINK ABOUT WHERE TO GO NEXT TO FIND THAT QUIET RELEASE THAT I HAD AT THE LAKE. Waking to a chorus of birds and later in the day, lulled by the cicadas while I lay in the hammock under a thick canopy of pines and cedars. Meeting old friends at the dock to reflect

on our many blessings and hopping on a SUP board when the lake was still and clear. From our deck which faces a 90-acre conservancy, I watched a pair of pileated woodpeckers, prehistoric looking birds, work on a long-gone hollow tree trunk with their bright red plume bobbing against the blue summer sky. Now, as families get back into the groove of school, sports, extracurriculars, work and traffic, we need to keep that carefree feeling alive. I bought some slide-in screens for the windows in our old house that were odd sized so I can feel any whiff of a breeze. I’ll keep a pitcher of lemonade in the refrigerator and invite my neighbors to come sit on the porch awhile.  I will keep this magazine’s calendar pages open to remind of the concerts, festivals and farmers markets happening every weekend.

WHAT TO WEAR TO POLO IN THE PINES

ALL EYES ARE ON POLO IN THE PINES, OCTOBER 5 AND 6 AND EVERYONE HERE AT LIFESTYLE PUBLICATIONS IS THINKING ABOUT WHAT TO WEAR TO THE YEAR'S MOST FABULOUS POLO EVENT.

Women:

Consider the terrain and your shoes- stay away from sti-

lettos! Stilettos do not work when it comes to the grass and divot stomping.  Wear a pointy toe flat, a wedge or a chunky lower heel. For fall polo matches, boots are perfect, as they allow you to take part in divot stomping, and give the most feminine dress a bit of an edge. Your polo outfit is not complete without a hat. Many opt for a beautiful wide-brimmed hat, but the sky is the limit! Fascinators have become popular in recent years. JULIE is in a dress by MICHAEL KORS COLLECTION and CHOLE’ BOOTS VICKIE’S dress is by Cinq a’ Sept Also available in cream HATS by A Tisket A Tasket Hat Shoppe & Boutique

Fascinators are smaller headpieces worn on a headband or on a comb. For a classic yet casual look, try a fedora. Fedoras can be dressed up or down, have  a modern yet understated edge, and add that perfect finishing touch to your polo ensemble.

TREND SETTER

(CON TI N U ED)

When dressing for polo, decide if you want your hat or your outfit to take center stage. If you want your outfit to shine, go more bold with bright colors, or fun florals and keep your hat simple. Furthermore, fall polo calls for darker-hued, florals, and patterns. If you decide your hat gets the attention, choose a solid-colored outfit. Think jumpsuits, or wide-leg trousers and a pretty blouse.

Men:

Think classic, country club, attire.

Chinos, dress pants, tailored shorts or well-cut jeans paired with shirts or polo shirts and a sport coat are the most typical choice for the guys. A fun, printed pocket square or tie gives the opportunity to add a pop of color. Slip on loafers and you are good to go.

I get to not only help create memories for families but also watch the families grow. As you will see some of my favorite places to photograph are in and around
