I’ve been itching to go to the seaside town of Kennebunkport for ages and so when I started planning our Maine road trip – I knew it had to get it’s fair share of time to explore. The town certainly didn’t disappoint. Full of classic New England charm (don’t worry, I’ve got a big travel guide coming soon!), I went with an equally classic outfit to match.
And just like that – our vacation came and went. Adam and I spent the past several days road-tripping up the New England coast and exploring Maine. On our second day of the trip, we started off in Cape Elizabeth at Portland Head Light. Since weather was full out Fall up north (and windy by the ocean), I packed practically in light layers and cozy textures.
Happy August! After spending last weekend/week sick in bed – I was more than looking forward to this weekend. Aside from a gorgeous wedding Friday night, Adam and I were up bright and early Saturday morning to head to the Hamptons for the first time. Verdict? I finally get what all the fuss is about.
This past weekend Adam and I spent a few days visiting Ocean City, NJ (where my Uncle has the cutest little beach house and generously let us have the place to ourselves). There was a lot of front porch sitting and beach lounging peppered with bike rides, ice cream runs and outdoor showers. I packed just a handful of things – mainly a couple of good bathing suits (this scalloped one piece is hands down my new favorite), white denim shorts, a light shirt jacket, and a pretty new dress to mix and match as needed.

Aside from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale – I don’t do much shopping between now and Fall unless they are pieces that I can wear now when it’s sweltering and also later when the air turns crisp. This marigold midi dress is great against a tan and paired naturally with cognac accessories and cat-eye shades for a Sunday morning bike ride. But how good will this be with ankle boots and a chunky cable knit sweater? Or a suede moto jacket and heels? Not that I’m wishing summer away any time soon…
