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.

Ocean House Secret Garden

The New England coast is sprinkled with charming and extraordinary hotels and destinations. Since 1868 the Ocean House has sat in Watch Hill Rhode Island, known for its stunning yellow facade it is architecturally breath taking. But it is the stunning ocean views that always get me. The historic building closed in 2003 for renovations, today’s structure retains the victorian charm of the original but holds all the modern conveniences we expect from top-luxury resorts.

Now that summer has finally decided to arrive in New England the Ocean House Secret Garden has returned. Sip Veuve Clicquot while you take in the magnificent views of the Ocean House beach. The Veuve Clicquot themed garden is absolutely fabulous, relax on a couch and enjoy the ocean breeze. They have a delightful menu of snacks, from charcuterie boards to lobster rolls.

Me and the girls headed down to Watch Hill last weekend and had to check out the famed Secret Garden. Ocean House is always impeccable, in service, views, and menu! I stuck with a classic glass of Veuve but they have a fantastic cocktail menu available. Can’t wait to go back again soon this summer!
