Cocktail hours have a reputation for being a bit stuffy, but I'm all the making it more casual. Just gather a few friends, open some good wine (or perhaps even serve a signature sip!), put out snacks - and my friends, you've got yourself a cocktail hour minus the bad conversation. This top from Elizabeth McKay is just the perfect amount of fancy (love the bell sleeve!) to elevate the occasion.
There is nothing I love more on these crisp late summer / early fall days than a stroll around the grounds at the Ocean House. It truly never gets old. And even though summer seems to truly shine around these parts, I love this magnificent property in every season. And this little striped number from Elizabeth McKay? It was basically made for such strolls (and for me - I'm kind of obsessed).
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.
