Headed to Montvale, N.J., to meet a chocolate vendor. I wore an electric blue blouse with chest pockets, blue faded denim, silver earrings and Nike Free blue sneakers, customized with my wedding date and our initials. I brought Ralph Lauren silver sandals to change into. My friends call me Clark Kent: I’m known to change in phone booths.

Morning staff meeting: went over strategic plans for upcoming LeSportsac collaboration. I wanted to spread an optimistic message about our future: grabbed my bright yellow jeans. Also a white button down and big gold hoops. My shoes were tan leather wedge sandals by Aerosoles.

For dinner, went to the Arlington Club with some girlfriends. Last time we went out, everyone was in black, and I did wear black Denim & Supply jeans this time, but a pink batwing cashmere sweater on top.

Ran six miles in tie-dye Asics, RLX black leggings and an Urban Outfitters red T-shirt that has a jogging rabbit on it.

Changed into comfy clothes to drive to the Hamptons. I wore my Junk Food T-shirt with the Candyland graphic, soft Sundry sweat pants, Sanuk flip-flops and a turquoise American Apparel hoodie.

My husband and I attended a dinner at the Atlantic Golf Club. We were guests, so wanted to look nice in a cocktail dress: stretch navy jersey with a Nathan & Moe necklace and a navy-and-white-striped ribbon belt to give it a nautical twist. The belt turned out to be the same color and pattern as the awning. Oh, well.

Up at 7 to walk my rescue dog Jersey on the beach. Wore Victoria’s Secret cotton candy-colored polka dot pajama bottoms and a yellow Hanes tank top.

After, I biked 30 miles to East Hampton on my red speedbike. Wore Sugoi bike shorts, an Animal Rescue logo turquoise T-shirt (It’s my signature color), black mirror Oakleys and Look bike shoes. To attend a friend’s birthday party in Sag Harbor later, I put on a lime green Ralph Lauren Black Label long cotton dress with a purple, green and fuchsia ribbon belt, an H&M fitted jean jacket to keep warm and Dolce Vita wedges. Arrived and, funny enough, saw that I matched the napkins and ties on the waiters.

Walked Jersey on the beach in a rainbow striped Roxy bikini and an Alice and Olivia turquoise beach cover up dress, that Stacey Bendet gave me for my honeymoon. Then played an hour of tennis in New Balances before going to a friend’s house in Amagansett for lunch and to teach aqua aerobics in their pool. I wore a Speedo one-piece and Alice and Olivia cover up. I’m definitely the tomboy of the family.

Up early for work in a red Black Label long-sleeve cotton wrap dress. I wore it with turquoise stone earrings and a belt with turquoise and silver. I would have worn the dress all day if it wasn’t a hundred degrees. I literally would have worn a bathing suit down the street if I could have. So for breakfast with Luke, Roald Dahl’s grandson, to talk about my upcoming visit to London to see “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory” and to open a potential store, I changed. In the spirit, I wore white summery cargo pants and my bright green Polo shirt with the English flag on it.

A bunch of a candy-related meetings in the city. I wore a purple Polo shirt with army-green cargo shorts that have paint splatters on them and I’ve had for years. If it fits and it lasts, I’ll keep it.
