THE COUNTDOWN IS ON

Loft Chambray Tee and 501 Levi Shorts

We are officially a week out from our 25 hour drive across seven states to Nantucket. If you saw my story about our summer plans, then you know we decided on a whim to spend the month of July in our favorite place with my bestie, Mackenzie (she actually just posted the most incredible story about her family history on the island).

LIFE DETAILS

Bem Bien Rose Bag

Summer is officially in full swing and for us, that means a non-stop schedule filled with lots of fun trips! This weekend was our only weekend at home until August and I am pretty excited for our upcoming travel plans.  Next weekend we are headed to Park City for a family reunion. This is my first time to the cute mountain town and I have heard rave reviews! Our agenda is packed full of activities, including hiking, zip lining and an intense game of family whiffle ball. If any of you have recommendations on places to go, eat or see, I would love to hear!

SUMMER PLANS

Nantucket

Two years ago, Mackenzie invited me on my first trip to Nantucket and I instantly fell in love with the ever-so-charming island off the coast of Massachusetts. So when Mackenzie and I were having our weekly catch-up (I am still in denial that she doesn’t live in Dallas anymore) and planning a few trips for the summer, she joked about how she wished we could just move to the East Coast for the summer.

A few phone calls and about 10 minutes later, we are officially headed to Nantucket for the month of July–and the pups are coming along, too!

LOVE YOU, FRIDAY + LABOR DAY SALES

Labor Day Sailing in Nantucket

Happy Labor Day weekend! I am keeping this short and sweet this morning because we are headed out to the ranch outside of Austin for a little R&R and family fun. I plan to do a ton of online shopping because there are so many good sales going on until Monday! See the complete list below:

SAILING IN STRIPES

Sailing_7

One of my favorite days this summer was spent on the Endeavor. Thanks to the best host ever, Mackenzie chartered this beautiful sailboat for the day to cruise around the Nantucket Sound.  There is something so unforgettable about the wind blowing in your hair, the blue water and of course, nautical stripes.

STROLLING IN ‘SCONSET

Tuckernuck Leaf Top

There is something so charming about the island.  Maybe it is the rich history or the hydrangeas in full bloom, but whatever it may be I never wanted to leave. I was seriously considering sending for the dogs and moving into Mackenzie’s family home.  Mackenzie and her family were the best hosts, they showed us all of their favorite spots on the island, one of them being the ‘Sconset Bluff Walk.  If you are not familiar, the bluff walk is a little walking path through the backyards of some of the island’s oldest homes.  On one side is the ocean and the other side you have an unobstructed view of the beautiful homes.

LIGHTHOUSE LOVE

Preppy Style at the Lighthouse

I may be suffering from those post-vacation blues, but looking at these pictures has never made me so happy.  I just got back from a 5 day trip to Nantucket. Mackenzie and her family have been vacationing on the island since before she was born, so I could not think of a more perfect host to show us around her favorite place.  I was lucky enough to visit Nantucket with her and Amy last September, but this was the first time Patrick was able to see this very special place.

BLUE + WHITE

Nantucket Packing with Blue and WhiteAre you noticing a trend? I started laying out my outfits for our upcoming trip to Nantucket and I think Mackenzie is rubbing off on me. As she says, #navyornothing.  Well, my entire packing list is shades of blue and white and of course, lots of stripes.  I have all a few ideas for white on white looks for a day on the boat and a pair of cute shorts for a bike ride in ‘Sconset.  Seriously, this weekend cannot come soon enough!  I would love for you to scroll through my packing options and let me know what I have to bring in my suitcase!
