So I think I'm into croquet.
I have to play it a few more times, to really make the claim, but we did this past weekend and it was a blast!
I've been studying my backyard to see if I can host tournaments at home. Our yard may be too small, but I definitely want to invest a set and maybe a personalized mallet? Yes, definitely.
Eventually, I'll have to invest in my croquet uniform. It's a must for every serious athlete. I'm told I get very "into" the game - I get low to the turf, swing liberally with either my left or right (depending on the angle) and I'm more into getting through the wickets than I am hitting players off course (I'm sure there will be times). Point is, my outfit will have to move with me and help me look "serious" - competition is a mind game after all and intimidation works.
Some starting thoughts.
|Shades for maximum visibility in the late afternoon (Madewell)|
|A classic pullover to transition into Fall. (Sonya Rykiel Intarsia Raccoon Sweater)|
Pants, no skirts - to keep it classy and an ankle length is key. (J.Crew jacquard capris )
Maybe not sneakers. Something a bit more refined - like a lace up oxford. (Marni - Metallic Brogues)
And of course, a cocktail to refresh and sustain throughout the game.
Something a littler herbacious, made with Lillet - perhaps the Lillet Sin?
