Sell Part III // Sail to Sable















Sail to Sable launched two years ago with a tunic that everyone tried to make but could never get right.  The owner, creator, and designer of this brand grew up on the water in Connecticut and visiting the beaches along the east coast and living the lifestyle she is now designing for.  

The name Sail to Sable refers to the Eastern most and Southern most spots on the Eastern seaboard: Sail Rock, Maine and Cape Sable, Florida.  How clever. 

This brand if full of preppy meets chic beach day to night wear.  As the brand grows so does the seasons you can wear it.  Be on the look out for what this line has in store for fall.  The fall line will incorporate ponte, leather, and cashmere to bring this sun and sand line to your closet all year long.

These pictures above I hope will inspire you and get you ready for spring and summer even though this weather only seems to be getting colder.  When you are from the south we know our cold days are only numbered till the heat sets in and all you want to do is be on a beach with a tunic on.  

Please visit Sail to Sable online and view their most resent designs.  You can order online or find out where you can try on Sail to Sable near you.

Snail mail

Snail mail


There are lots of old southern traditions making a come back and I am highlighting one imparticular, SNAIL MAIL. I LOVE mail. Personalized mail just because makes people feel special. I remember in college my mother would always remind me to mail someone special a card once a week. It makes an impact and keeps you connected. 

I wanted to share two of my favorite things with you about snail mail.  The first is collecting cards of any kind. I think I get this trait from my mother.  She has always had a wonderful collection of cards for any occasion. So over time I have collected birthday cards, thank you notes, home made holiday cards, and beautiful blank cards. Above are a few of my favorites right now. 

Second thing I love is sending snail mail with out the recipient knowing. Think back to when you were a small child and you got mail. It was the greatest surprise of the day.  That's why I love snail mail as an adult.  With all the aweful mail these days such as bills, trash, and just plain bad news that comes our way who doesn't want happy mail. So in 2014 I am making a pack with myself to send more happy mail.  Are you in? Tell me your thoughts. 

Check out one of my favorite online stores Waiting on Martha. She is my go to for all my specialty paper and cards for all my snail mail needs from birthdays to holidays. 

Sell. Eat. Love.
