Day-tripper's Guide to Nantucket

I try to get to the sweet little island of Nantucket any chance I get. There is just something about being on the ferry, rounding Brant point and pulling into the Grey Lady's charming harbor that gets me every time. It's one of our favorite places to escape to May thru October, even if we can only make it for a day.  Think a day trip isn't doable? Well I've teamed up with Rockport to prove that silly theory wrong with my go-to day trippers guide to ACK below. The only problem? You might never want to leave.

Summersalt Sidestroke Swimwear + Supergoop Shoot

This year has been the year of the one piece for me. For a few reasons. When I'm at the beach, I love to swim. I love to play in the sand with my friend's kiddos. I love to take long walks when the sun starts to set. All of these things are a pain in the neck in a bikini. I've fought it for long enough. But now, at 35, I'm all one piece all the way. And I'm totally happy about it.

Stylish Sun Hats For Summer

When it comes to the beach, I'm totally a hat girl. I would like to say it's because I'm super careful about SPF (which I am, but I definitely slip up from time to time) but really, it's because I like to look somewhat pulled together even if I've been swimming the day away or running around chasing my friends' kiddos (I don't sit still very well...). Hats just save the day in so many ways. I tend to favor the more traditional variety (shocker), which I think is very apparent in my selections below.

Brand Photoshoot with Peter Beaton

Growing up, my mom was always into hats. She wore them to church every Sunday, and you better believe she sported the wide brim variety when we all hit the beach. So I guess my love of the head covers comes pretty naturally. Peter Beaton has always been our place of choice. Their hats are truly one of a kind, and even though I'm not much of a collector, I could easily collect a bunch of these beauties. So shooting some product for them was a dream gig. They have now expanded their line to shoes, cover ups and sunglasses - making it a one stop shop.

Summer Entertaining with Nantucket Looms

Nantucket Looms has always been that store on Main Street I fantasized about when I was younger. Everything in the store just looked so perfect and soft and lovely. So when they asked me to come out to shoot for them, I was over the moon. Mainly because I knew shooting their product would be so much fun because it's all so darn gorgeous, but the opportunity also made me wish I could go back in time and tell the girl with the ice cream on her hands that one day all of this would happen.

Summer Day Dress Edit

I love a summer dress. They are without question my favorite things to purchase, and to me, the most comfortable thing to wear when bopping around during the summer months. It never fails, the second the temps start to rise in the spring, I start the search for this years' warm weather wardrobe staples. Shopping carts across the internet are currently filled to the brim with my finds (and tend to sit there for some time), so I thought I would share some beauties I currently have my eye at the moment.
