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.
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.
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.
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.
