CURRENT JEWELRY TREND:
A 26” baroque pearl necklace and double-strand bracelet are both tailored and dressy.
My favorite all-weather jackets are by Uniqlo. This Japanese company has got style, color, and price just right. Women’s Light Warm Padded Parka, $59.90
Cabotine de Grès, $23/3.4 ounces eau de parfum spray, fragrancenet.com
I love the way local painter Wayne Wolfe captures the magical beauty of nature in Colorado.
The summer music festival Bravo! Vail at the Ford Amphitheater (June 23 to Aug. 6). World-class talent delivered by the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Dallas Symphony Orchestra, bravovail.org
I am so happy that Serenity is the Pantone color for 2016. It is very similar to the Ocean blue that Matouk (another fave) uses for trim on their sheets.
Glass salad bowls by Simon Pearce. The square Woodbury bowls come in four sizes and are elegant and simple to fit any style or taste. $75, $100, $145, and $200, sliferdesigns.com

Almost everything by Visual Comfort & Co. is well made and well priced. They carry top sellers by current design stars such as Alexa Hampton and Suzanne Kasler.
SKIN CARE LINE:
I have depended upon La Mer Moisturizing Cream for 25 years. Créme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream, $170/1 ounce, neimanmarcus.com.
Michael Aram’s table accessories are popular with all ages and offer many appropriate price points.
After having Louis Vuitton luggage stolen between Nantucket airport and Boston’s Logan airport, I switched to Tumi and Victorinox. Both are well made and work perfectly. tumi.com, swissarmy.com
