My camera roll is brimming with photos I’ve snapped from my trips to Nantucket. I have a bunch of outfit posts and a travel guide coming up, but for now… iPhone photos! As much as I love being back in my routine (and trust me, I really love it), I am missing my happy place. I think next year I may have to go for a full month.
Get ready for PHOTO OVERLOAD.
Trip #1 with some of my favorite girls (Gray, Chassity, and Julia) on the planet! So. Much. Fun. I think we all agreed that the time together was too short. (And they’re all doing a hard sell on me moving to Charleston, haha.)
Julia found the rental house, and it was perfect for the six of us with a big kitchen, a great back patio + front porch, and (most importantly) the best living room for our nightly games.
Since it was everyone else’s first trip to Nantucket, I booked a charter sail around the sound with Endeavour Sailing. Such a fun way to see the island.
As fun as going out to restaurants can be, there’s something special about cooking at home!
The Nantucket flower box game is quite strong.
Off to a Fourth of July dinner!
The seals at the beach are cute and fun to watch. I swear, they stare right back at you just as curious as we are. But a word of caution, where there are seals, there’s the potential for sharks.
The cutest shed on the island I think.
My dad used to have a yellow convertible bug! (My aunt currently has it by way of my grandparents.) I loved seeing this one in town.
Watching the fog roll in never gets old.
After a quick time back in Connecticut, I did some laundry, repacked my bags, and gathered the dogs. I have more to say about the journey, but (spoiler alert) they were amazing!
Hi, Brant Point!
A morning walk into town to get coffee from Handlebar Cafe. (Side note, but I have never received so many DMs about an article of clothing. My hoodie is from J. Crew Factory last year. I randomly met a reader who works there at lunch later in the day… she promised to put in a good word with her friends to try to bring it back.)
Just a few moments after the sun set.
Did I mention how much the dogs loved Nantucket? I was worried about bringing them, but I’m so glad that I did.
Our rental had the nicest front yard and side patio for grilling.
The key to getting a good spot on the beach is to go when it’s still foggy. People came out in droves the minute the sun came out! (Towel is from Spartina; I bought mine in Murray’s.)
I could have spent the whole trip walking around ‘Sconset and pretend house hunting.
Isn’t that the cutest cottage ever?!
And lastly… peeping on Tommy Hilfiger’s old house. I’m obsessed. (Hat is Peter Beaton)
