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 in New England is magic. I think we have all established that fact. There is just nothing quite like it. The air is sweet and the blooms are plentiful, and you just seem to wash away all memories of those rainy (cold) spring months (March & April, I'm talk to you). Another thing I love about summer in this little region of ours is there are SO many places to soak up those sweet, fleeting months - and for me, Nantucket has always been high on that list.
I know cocktails are fabulous all year, but I feel like they really start to shine when summer rolls around. There is nothing like the first sip of an interesting cocktail on a warm night, and this little number from The Coastal Table I had the pleasure of styling is one to add to your arsenal. It's as delcious as it is pretty, meaning you need to try it out tonight. See it in all it's glory over on SMP Living today!
Working from home has serious perks. But you know where it's made me really lazy? Eating. I'll grab a handful of goldfish, some carrots & hummus or an entire bag of chips and salsa (seriously, how does that happen so fast?) throughout the day without even thinking. It's just easy to graze since I'm cooking for a party of one all day. But I'm determined to put some time in making things during the day that really fuel me, with fresh, quality ingredients. Aka I want to start eating like an adult.
