Fair Nerophytes, one of the benefits of living in a region devoid of that fine quartet, the seasons, is that light layering works best year-round. As such, one never feels completely reined in by winter's icy clutches, though it can get exasperating when a yen for unfurling the cashmere or hiking up the knee-high riding boots strikes. Yes, Houston is a rather quirky city for all of its petro-go-getterism, and Nero finds it oddly liberating.
Case in point, this blogger has teased repeatedly about the much-anticipated arrival of our very own divine outpost of the boho jet-set, Calypso St. Barth. To enter this realm is to step off a private plane onto a terrain which exudes an air of perma-resort, that intra-seasonal limbo which denotes une vie aisée.
Calypso offers a smattering of choice, luxe pieces no ordinary traveler would need but any woman with half her wits and a robust pocket book wouldn't consider leaving home without. Though Nero finds the haute-togs and trimmings quite fetching, it's really the house goods that get my heart rate in a tizzy. Central to this frenzy are the pillows by Maison de Vacances. Cheeky, irreverent and scandalously priced vis-à-vis their dimensions, they're an amuse-oreille Nero can't get enough of -- sweet little sophomoric nonpareils that boast such eternally universal slogans as "Love" and "Rock." (So sue me, folks, I dig 'em.)
Yes, it would appear that things are always sunny on this mysterious species of Mustique. That said, Nero's not about to don a pareo and crawl under that display table to bask in the turquoise glow of a Harry Allen piggy bank. Because honestly, dear readers, the weather here in Houston has been a little too nippy for that.
