Friday Finds

This week was a sprint, a marathon, all tied up into one! Was very busy with work and packing but I feel like I got so much accomplished! Real talk it was hard when I made the choice to leave my job in politics, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do, this huge part of my life was all of a sudden over. I spent months applying, interviewing, researching trying to figure out what was the right fit for me. Now I’m working for myself as a freelancer and I’m loving it, I get to work with so many amazing clients, invest in my personal growth, and create amazing content! It’s hard work, and I’m often very tired, but it’s worth it and I am so grateful for this opportunity and I am full steam ahead to Fall!

On that note, I have been nonstop shopping for Fall! This week’s Friday Finds include some great transition pieces!

Hydrangea Heaven

My favorite flowers without a doubt are hydrangeas! I love the blue and purple shades that bloom all over the cape and islands in the summer. I especially love that they match my new Lilly Pulitzer romper!

Nantucket is so beautiful this time of year, between all the sea roses covering Sconset the sea salt filled air, and hydrangeas everywhere! If you only have one weekend to get away this summer I would highly recommend Nantucket. It is my favorite destination!

My romper is from Lilly, I love a Karlie Romper, it’s really light and airy, so even though it is long sleeve you won’t be too hot!

Vineyard Vines Summer Dress

Vineyard Vines has long time been one of my favorite brands. All summer long you can find me in a casual VV summer dress. I hate shorts and skirts when its 80+ degrees out. Dresses are quick, easy, and keep me cool. I especially love this one shoulder gingham dress. It can be dressed up to wear to a wedding or a nice dinner, but it is casual enough to wear out and about for the day. Last week I spent some time on my favorite island, we strolled through the streets of Sconset and took in all the gorgeous sea roses that were in full bloom! Sconset in July is probably the most magical thing you can imagine. It’s like being transported back in time, sea shell roads, rose covered cottages, ocean views, and of course a chocolate chip cookie from Sconset market.

This adorable VV dress is now on sale! Grab it before it’s gone.

Sail to Sable by the Shore

Stripes and summer go hand in hand. I can’t even count how many navy and white striped items hang in my closet. But I love this Sail to Sable striped dress, it is perfect for everyday wear and will definitely be making an appearance on the 4th of July.

Me and the girls took a fabulous trip down to Watch Hill Rhode Island last week, we explored the charming little town, visited the Ocean House, and the Watch Hill Light House. The original light house was built in 1745 and after it was destroyed in a storm President Thomas Jefferson signed an order for it to be rebuilt in 1806. One of the things I love about New England is everywhere you go, every site you visit has a history. What you look at may be a restoration, a rebuild, or a redesign. But they always retain their New England charm, they are classics.

Might be why I love this preppy nautical dress, it is a classic. It will never go out of style, I will pull it out of my closet every season happy to see that it has stood the test of time.
