Chappy Wrap

I love supporting local, woman owned businesses and this year Chappy Wrap really captured my heart! This mother-daughter founded company is dedicated to their mission of providing comfort. I love their origin story, they had an old blanket in their family that was loved by everyone and an integral part of their home. When the blanket was well loved and they looked to replace it they couldn’t find one of the same quality and comfort. So they began making their own blankets, made from natural cotton blends and high quality fibers.

Today I own two Chappy Wrap blankets, I love their nautical designs! They’re perfect for keeping me warm in the winter and bringing to the beach in the summer. Chappy Wrap just launched a whole fleet of new designs, including this one, Fair Winds in Turquoise. It’s reversible and will be traveling with me all summer! Thank you to Chappy Wrap for my new blanket!

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.

By Paige Shoes by the Sea Shore

Back in the day when I was working as a sales associate at vineyard vines a few of the guys called me lobster girl, why because I loved anything with a lobster on it! I am so excited to be working the By Paige Shoes this summer to showcase so of her incredible designs! Paige Andrews has over 20 years experience, all of the needlepoint items are hand stitched! I love the vibrant colors and intricate designs By Paige offers! I especially love my new paid of Lobster and Crab loafers!

I don’t think there has ever been a more New England pair of shoes than these! The second I took them out of the box I was impressed by the quality, and when you slip a pair on you can tell these were made with care. They are so comfortable! The stitching is beautiful and the colors really pop. I can’t wait to wear mine all summer long.

They’re perfect for all your days spent by the shore, trips to the cape and islands, or a drive along the Maine coast! I wore mine up to Rockport, MA the other day for a little brunch and shopping. Rockport is one of my favorite coastal towns in New England. If you haven’t been I highly recommend taking a day trip, and be sure to do it in a pair of By Paige Shoes!

Thank you By Paige for my pair of loafers, as always all opinions are my own. Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, I love using my platform to support small business owners like Paige, be sure to check her out on Instagram!

Blooms on Comm Ave

Magnolia season is just about over, the flowers are falling and trees are turning green. So glad we had nice weather for the peak since now it’s pretty much all rain. I love a good T-shirt dress, they’re easy to dress up, dress down, you can look like you put in effort without having a super complex outfit. I love this one I got from J.Crew last year it has adorable gingham bell sleeves that make it feel a little extra.

South End Sunday

The south end is quickly becoming one of my favorite neighborhoods in Boston. So many cute streets and great restaurants! The weather has been perfect (minus the rain) for exploring the city, popped into a few cute stores on Tremont street and grabbed brunch at Whaling in Oklahoma with a few girlfriends the other day. brunch was so good, I got the avocado toast, such a millennial I know! They have a great Asian fusion menu that’s perfect if you’re looking to mix up your typical brunch game. It was even nice enough for us to sit outside, yay for patio season!

Finished the day off with FOMU a fabulous vegan ice cream joint. I know what you’re think, vegan ice cream?!? I thought it was going to be gross too, but I kid you not, if no one had told me it was vegan I wouldn’t have known. It tasted so good! The texture was spot on for ice cream and it was delicious! What are you’re favorite spots in the South End?
