A LITTLE NAVY NUMBER

Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? We had a great couple of days trying to stay out of the triple digit heat in Dallas. We spent lots of time watching Netflix. What are some of your favorite shows? We just finished The Sinner and we need a new series to start! On Saturday, my sweet friend Saragh planned a brunch to kick off my birthday month––I can’t believe I am going to be 30 in eight days! Our brunch turned into late afternoon margaritas and dinner at Dolce Riviera. Days like this make my heart so happy.

I’m not going to lie that I am going a little stir crazy as I let my toe heal. It’s funny how you don’t realize how active you are on a daily basis until you can’t do the simple things, like walk the dogs. Hopefully, I will be back to 100% soon.

A CREATIVE SPARK

Sankaty Lighthouse

Last year at this time I was headed to Surfside for my daily dip in the ocean with Mackenzie. This year I am hiding inside from the triple digit temps in Dallas. Anyone have a time machine?! All jokes aside, this past trip to Nantucket was just the spark I needed to fall back in love with my camera. I was so inspired by the fresh blooms, the water and colors that I ended up taking over a thousand photos in just a few short days.  Being behind the camera is something I truly love.

SWEET, SWEET SUMMERTIME

Oh, sweet summertime. I wish you would last forever.

There is nothing love more than building out my summer wardrobe. So, before heading to Nantucket I was introduced to a darling retailer, Halsbrook and to say I was obsessed would be an understatement. I ended up stocking up on so many classic pieces from some of my favorite brands.

SAILING NANTUCKET

Ali Schilling in Nantucket

For the last 4 years, Mackenzie and her amazing family have invited us to stay with them on Nantucket. Last year, Patrick and I went out for the month of July and then I ended up staying the rest of the summer to help Mackenzie with wedding planning. It was one of those summers we will never forget.

One activity that Mackenzie always plans is a sailboat ride on the Endeavor. This year was no exception, so without further adieu let’s cue the picture overload…

WEEKEND DETAILS

We are having a lazy summer weekend around here and I couldn’t be happier. After a busy start to our summer, sometimes it is nice to have a quiet weekend at home. If you didn’t catch my Instagram last week, I mentioned I broke my toe on our last day in Nantucket and I have been currently spending the majority of my time in bed icing my injury––just keeping it real over here. What are you up to this weekend?

SUMMER STRIPED SWEATER

If there is one thing that I was missing last summer on Nantucket, it was some casual summer sweaters. I brought my trusty Tippi’s with me, but I was lacking different styles and weights for cooler nights.  This year I came prepared and packed this striped one––which ended up being my most worn item, this Flag sweater and a navy and ivory cable knit cashmere for throwing over my shoulders.

SUNSET AT GALLEY BEACH

Ali and Patrick in Nantucket

On our first night on Nantucket we had a little date night at Galley Beach with Mackenzie and Will. We arrived just as the sun was setting. The candy colored skies were one we will never forget.

PERSIFOR IN MEXICO

I was so excited when Mackenzie told me her friend Alex of Persifor was going to be on Nantucket and wanted to grab lunch last summer. If you aren’t familiar with Persifor it’s a darling resort line of cute, preppy patterned dresses and seperates. Before starting Persifor, Alex worked at J.Crew and Lily Pulitzer in design and merchandising. It was so fun getting to meet her and chat about business, goals and of course, our love for Nantucket.
