Victory Cup Polo Match

This past weekend I got to attend the Victory Cup Polo Match in Westport Connecticut. If you’ve never attended a polo match, it’s a lot of fun! Westport was a bit of a drive from Boston so if you really wan to go but would like something more local check out the Newport RI Polo Club or the Hamilton MA Polo Club for public events.

Hats are a must, stilettos can stay home, and dress to impress! I wore a Lilly Pulitzer Maxi dress (that is unfortunately now sold out), a pair of my older Jack Rogers, and a hat, of course! We sipped rosé all day, had lobster rolls, and took in the match. There was also some great people watching! Thank you so much to Victory Cup Polo for hosting me.

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!

Sea Shell by the Sea Shore

There is an Isak Dinesen quote that goes, “The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea.”

There were definitely sweat and tears this week and I can’t wait to spend sometime by the sea. A short break by the beach is exactly what I need to unwind. If I had to pick a favorite thing about New England it would be all the small little beach towns you can escape to. My favorite has always been West Dennis; my family has been going there every summer since my grandfather was little. But there are also adorable towns up and down the coast. There is Rockport, Scituate, Newport, Bar Harbor, Camden, and so many more. What’s your favorite coastal escape?

This Lilly dress is one of my ‘holy-grails’, when it first came out I couldn’t afford it. Most of my Lilly dresses are actually bought second hand on apps like Poshmark. Last summer I finally scored this one for half its retail price on Posh!

Red, White, and Nautical

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! MDW has always marked the start of summer. It is surprisingly one of the few holidays I don’t have a standing tradition for, weather in New England can be so unpredictable that it never makes sense to plan a beach weekend to far in advance. This year I’ll be keeping things low key and just hanging around Boston for the weekend spending time with family and friends. Memorial Day is great for a lot of things, trips to the beach, cookouts, big sales. But lets not forget what this holiday is all about; celebrating the men and women who have died fighting for our country. Thank you to our service men and women and their families.

Last week I attended a Lilly Pulitzer summer kick-off party. The view was gorgeous and the Lilly party was so much fun! This is one of my favorite Lilly dresses I bought at the end of last summer. I love the starfish print and the colors. Very appropriate for Memorial Day Weekend. I hope you all have a great long weekend! Its going to be rainy across New England but I know that won’t stop you all from having a good time! What are everyone’s plans?
