Summer always makes me fall back in love with New England. Our long, brutal winters leave most of us cursing the day we chose to live in a place where the air hurts our faces and grey skies hang heavy day in and out- but then summer comes and our charming seasides wipe those depressing winter memories from the slate and infuses us with love for our little corner of the world once again!
We have our own brand of preppy here in the Northeast- one based in khakis and pearls, boat shoes and stripes. One only needs to spend a few hours in Newport or Nantucket to grasp the style, but I felt inspired to pull together outfits for her and him that reflect the classic laid back New England shoreline look. As a special treat for our nine year anniversary (how the hell did nine years pass??) I booked Andrew and I a few nights at the impeccable and perfectly preppy White Elephant Resort on Nantucket in September (my favorite time to go there) so this is pretty much what we’ll look like on that trip:
FOR HER: 1. // 2. // 3. // 4. (just bought this- LOVE) // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10. (a boat and tote to keep wine chilled-also makes a great gift) // 11. (this beach towel looks like a hide rug! DIE!)
Need to get even dressier for a nice dinner out by the shore? I am OBSESSED with this Sail to Sable Summer Stunner dress. MUST. HAVE. IT.
Doesn’t looking at this just make you instantly relaxed?
