Fashion Friday: Classic New England Summer Outfits

Last weekend Andrew and I spent a glorious weekend alone at the incredible Wequassett Resort in Chatham on the Cape. Whenever I spend time in the Cape and Islands I am reminded of my love for the classic, preppy-with-a-twist New England way of dressing. It’s so happy and lovely to not see ironic acid washed mom jeans and crop tops everywhere.  I partnered up with Halsbrook, one of my favorite sources for this kind of look, to craft some top to bottom outfits inspired by my Cape weekend- not over the top preppy but rather a comfortable blend of hip and timeless. Think Kate Middleton meets Olivia Palermo.I want ALL of these looks in my closet NOW.

They are also having an awesome summer sale right now- you can score some seriously great stuff!  Get an extra 30% off sale items now with code SUMMER30! Happy shopping (and happy Father’s Day weekend!)

A Tiny But Mighty Cottage.

I spotted this spread in Southern Living (in another life I was a Southern belle for sure) of a compact, 800 square foot cottage in Florida and fell in love. While I often-time crave a larger house (Henry’s toys mate and duplicate while we sleep, I’m certain) I have always LOVED smaller houses. Not “silly-tiny” (I’m looking at you, “tiny house” trend) but perfectly laid out, livable tiny where everything has a place and yet there is a place for everything. This little gem did not disappoint!

The low-country front porch is delightful, as is the style of the entire place! Classic design done right.

Fabulous Kids Room Finds From Etsy

We’ve been doing a lot of kids rooms and nurseries lately (most of them e-design, actually- it works so well for this type of room) and I have found myself sourcing more and more from Etsy for unique and custom offerings.  I absolutely LOVE finding completely off the radar items for any space in the home, including nurseries and kid spaces.  From antiques to custom bedding, you can really source some incredible stuff with a little legwork.  Or I can share some favorites and make it a little easier for you… :)

Fashion Friday: 14 Perfect Summer Weekender Bags

Summer is a great time to get away on weekends, and why not do it in style instead of in your fraying circa 1997 Vera Bradley duffle (fun fact- one of these below is a NEW VB bag! She’s back ladies!)

I have two weekenders I love (#7 and #9)- both really sturdy and hold the perfect amount for two nights away or a quick business trip.  Although I am pretty obsessed with the Wes Anderson Darjeeling Limited vibe of #2 ( I was straight up in love with the luggage in the movie).

1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. //10. // 11. // 12. // 13. // 14.

Also as a side note, I found the perfect slip on sandal for summer for $88. They have a very Hermes vibe and come in lots of colors. In love.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Father’s Day is next weekend so I wanted to make sure I got my gift guide up in time to actually order stuff :)  I’ll get back to interiors next week (I know some of you get really bummed when I don’t post heavily on interiors, but this week was an anomaly with Nina’s book release and this post! Sorry!)

Dads are tough to shop for, so I hope this helps give you some ideas! Plus an AWESOME giveaway!
