My 8 Summer Essentials

As I have been soaking up the sunshine, whether at home by the lake in Vermont or amongst the sour orange trees of my Yucatan cooking school, these 8 treasures are never far! Add them to your beach bag and I promise you won’t regret a thing.



Perfect, go-anywhere recycled sailcloth tote from Papagé. Each unique bag is USA made with care and we are the only shop to carry them outside Wisconsin.


For swell sipping, I only trust S’Well water bottles. A double-walled stainless steel bottle, with a copper core, provides cool refreshment for 24 hours, a warm pick-me-up for 12 hours. We carry only the cutest styles and the accessories to complement including brushes and ice cube trays.

The Admiral Corkscrew by Viski I keep on hand just in case. One never knows when a day at the beach may include a visit to the vineyard! Elegant and durable, see them for yourself at our shop.


The most luxurious, most functional, 100% linen towel from Goodlinens. Did we mention they make kitchen towels too? Stop in and pick up yours today.

Self-described as “a cocktail for your skin,” Bar Saketini Blush Body Oil is a fun and flirty favorite for keeping my skin hydrated and soft.

Chanel. Irresistible, iconic, and exceptional. My beach day doesn’t begin until it is applied - Rouge Allure Ink, 142 Créatif. 


I spoil my skin and stick it to the sun with Coola sunscreen. Just as I strive to source my ingredients locally, sustainably, and organically, Coola does the same. Our neighbors at Be Skin Clinic are your source for healthy Summer skin.

Paige denim looks the part of high fashion jeans, but they feel as cozy as pj’s! Visit Mendy’s in Shelburne to achieve effortless and comfortable Summer style.

Happy Summer!
