LITTLE JOYS WITH LOFT

This year has been filled with lots of laughs and joy. Most of you know from this post, but I was so lucky to spend all summer with my bestie, Mackenzie in Nantucket. She moved back to Connecticut last year, but we found ways to see each other and catch up throughout this year.  This past weekend she came to visit,  so I though it would be fun to take a moment out of the crazy holiday season to bring her a little joy with a gift from LOFT and a coffee date.

SUNRISE AT GREAT POINT

If there was one memory from this summer that I would have to put on the top of my list it would be watching the sunrise at Great Point Lighthouse.

NANTUCKET BUCKET LIST

Kule Stripes in Nantucket

When we started our trip from Dallas to Nantucket on the last day of June, I jotted down a few bucket list of items we wanted to check off before leaving the island.  Mackenzie and her family have been coming to the island since the 1880s–well, not specifically Mackenzie, but we knew we were in good hands. The list was pretty short because I knew we would add things to our list as the month progressed.

HYDRANGEA HEAVEN

White Tuckernuck Skirt

When it came to packing for Nantucket, I pretty much stuck with a neutral palette. Think: lots of white, cream, navy, and gray.  Since we were driving and knew I could pack more than my usual carry-on, I could have easily gone overboard. Instead, I thoughtfully planned each outfit and decided I would only bring items in my closet that I truly love. After my major Marie Kondo moment last month, it made packing a breeze.

WEEKEND DETAILS

It’s official, I’m never leaving Nantucket.  This past weekend was non-stop fun! We celebrated Mackenzie’s wedding shower in Newport, had dinner and a few too many laughs at Ventuno (I would highly recommend!), explored Cliff Road and Steps Beach, enjoyed lobster rolls at Galley Beach and then ended the day watching the sunset at Ladies Beach.

10 (LIGHT) TOPS FOR ANY SEASON

There is nothing more I have loved than escaping the Dallas heat this summer. The idea of wearing jeans in July normally sounds dreadful, but in Nantucket, the temps drop at night and jeans and a top are ideal for dinner outside.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially starts this Friday and if you read this post, you know how many good Fall new arrivals are included in the sale.  This top is one of my favorite purchases I made! I am all about instant gratification and love that I can wear this throughout the rest of the summer with jeans, high-waisted shorts or a cute mini skirt.

LOVE YOU, FRIDAY

I am currently sitting at my “temporary” desk staring out the window at bushes of beautiful blooming hydrangeas–say that three times fast.  Things could be worse around here ;)

We are having so much fun exploring Nantucket. The other day we took Molly, Zoey and Mackenzie’s cockapoo, Rory to Sesachacha Pond for their first ever swim.  They were very hesitant at first, but the second Patrick got in the water, they were naturals. All three pups could have spent hours chasing the ball and swimming around. My heart melted into a million pieces.

LIFE LATELY

We made it to the island after a short 30 hour drive. Patrick deserves a medal for driving over 28 hours straight! We are getting settled into our new temporary home with Mackenzie’s family and have had the BEST time in Nantucket so far.
