Winter Summerlin

Look at that sea, girls–all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn’t enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.Anne of Green Gables

Living in RI, I’m fortunate to be surrounded by the sea and all its loveliness.  On this particular day, I was dressed for mild weather in Providence where it’s almost always freezing in December. I had also teamed up with Lucky Magazine and Sperry Top-sider to showcase Sperry’s timeless new line of watches that incorporates many of the same elements of their beloved boat shoes, including their signature skip lace, grommets, and weathered leather. Sperry’s solid construction makes this timepiece the perfect no-fuss, durable companion to wear with my cozy cable knit sweaters and duck boots this winter! The width and elegant simplicity of the watch enhanced the clean lines of my color block jacket.

Enter your information here, and then upload a picture that best illustrates your “Passion for the Sea” on Instagram or Twitter, tagging @SperryTopsider and #ImOnSperryTime. The sweepstakes runs through December 31, 2013, so make sure you enter today!

    Love that quote. LMM did so delight in the beauty of her beloved PEI and all it's moods of sea and wood. Someday, I'll make a trip to the Maritimes and settle down on the bluffs and dunes with a few favorite stories.
