I haven’t done a lot of outfit posts around here lately so I thought I’d kick off this week with one from my trip to Nantucket a couple weeks ago! I feel like as a blogger, most of the pictures I put out there are the absolute best representation of me, my hair and makeup are done, I’m wearing a carefully picked out outfit and I’ve taken 37,000 pictures just to select the best 10 to share. And while all the outfit posts I do are actual outfits I do wear, I feel like you don’t always get the best picture of what I look like normally.
Our last morning in Nantucket was grey and drizzly, Alli really wanted to get fudge before leaving the island and I was in desperate need of a new sweatshirt, so we grabbed my mom and Patrick and headed into town. On Sunday mornings the island is pretty sleepy but it seemed extra sleepy on this particular morning.
We walked by my favorite house on the island on our way into town. It’s so adorable, and I mean guys look at those hydrangeas, if that doesn’t scream goals, I don’t know what does.
Because we were heading out in just a couple hours I threw on my go to summer outfit, stripes, comfy chino shorts and a baseball hat. Anyone who knows me well will tell you that the second I get home from work I throw running shorts and a big t-shirt on, almost immediately, I’m all about being comfy when I can be. That definitely stays true for the summer time, while I love a good sundress as much as the next girl, I would say a good 90% of my summer is spent in shorts and a t-shirt or striped shirt of some sort. My favorite are those cooler mornings and nights that we get up in New England when I can wear long sleeves, just like my last morning on the island!
Since this post is all about normalcy, this is my sister in her natural habitat, a fudge shop where the samples are unlimited and free. Seriously, fewer things in life make my sister and dad happier than good fudge, and Aunt Leah’s is some of the best.
Armed with boxes of fudge to take back to Boston and DC we wandered around the wharf for a little longer but with most of the shops still closed, we decided to head into town to find a sweatshirt before heading back to the house to say our goodbyes.
It was definitely a quick trip this year but that didn’t make it any less fun, there is nothing better than a relaxed weekend with family and friends.
