Some call this spring, but we simply call it “Heritage” around here. We shed jackets and scarves and find ourselves reaching into our closets for sundresses and sandals. It really has nothing to do with the temperature– us southern girls will shiver our little timbers just so we can wear our sleeveless, halter, wrap, cropped and cinched “Heritage” outfit. It’s a bit of crazy we’re born with…
I can’t say for sure…
I’m sure people in Boston or Minneapolis have fashion seasons, too? Boots? Hats? Gloves?
We don’t just talk about them, but we obsess over our Heritage outfits. A few friends went shopping on Friday night after our group text. Three pairs of shoes, a maxi dress, new bra and a Kate Spade purse later–we are almost there. Even her 5 year old daughter was snapped trying on her Heritage outfit. We start out young ’round here.
We want stripes. chevron. solids. monograms. hats. sunglasses. And of course, plaid. It’s the Heritage logo. Did you know the signature Heritage plaid is registered? Yep! I even bought a wreath for my door off Etsy in plaid burlap. Bless you, oh precious Mastercard. (said like Lord of the Rings…)
This year, there are changes to the handbag policy and my facebook page is a little busy with the discussion. (Thus, this blog entry is born…) Security– which I am SO thankful for! Really! Security will allow a clear-see-through handbag– which is quite possibly the most disgusting fashion accessory ever. It’s like not painting your toenails. It’s just not pretty. Functional, but not pretty.
On the other hand, we can bring in a 6×6 wristlet or small handbag. That will hold:
* 1 lipstick
* IPhone/Droid without the otter box
* a $20 bill for the taxi/Uber from the Quarterdeck, Triangle or Poseidon (the blessing of a 12mile island)
* Your drivers license
* Your precious Mastercard
* A sharpie for the ever so slight chance you run into the beautiful Adam Scott (the golfer, not the actor!) and he’ll autograph your receipt from the Grey Goose Lounge on the 18th green where you’ve spent $100 on said precious Mastercard in vodka/sodas.
So, while it’s not ideal, it’s functional. A little bag will allow you to Travel Light.. Be with Friends. Laugh Hard. Smile Big. Be Cute. Love Life. Enjoy Heritage. It’s only once a year.
