July Notes

July Notes

July is here and with that brings the excitement of 4th of July celebrations, trips to our favorite coastal destinations, and days spent on the beach. It’s busy season in some of our favorite New England towns and there is an extra excitement in the air.

Here’s what’s on my radar for this month…


  • Nantucket— We’ll be taking our first trip of the season out to this special place. Get ready for some major oversharing!

  • Newport—We always love to visit this sailing haven during the summer. I’ll be sharing an overnight trip with you and some worthwhile things to do.

  • The Impromptu—Part of the fun of a New England summer are the trips you don’t plan out. Sometimes it’s just nice to hop in the car and see where the road takes you. Needless to say, it will probably be next to a body of water! Sometimes I just like to day trip to a lighthouse and find a place to eat close-by or venture to the beach and stop at places on the way home.


  • Barrington Gifts—These bags come in so many good options for a New England summer. I love that you can customize the print, monogram, and leather. They make the perfect travel companion and I have been taking mine everywhere. Check out their bags, luggage and accessories at:

  • By Paige Shoes—I fell in love with these when scrolling the ‘Gram one day. The needlepoint slippers and loafers are so good. Sailboats, lobsters, monograms…I am in love! Check them out at:

  • Duffield Lane—I just found out about this brand and they offer the cutest dresses, tops, and swim cover-ups! Perfect for Nantucket and the Cape, or really anywhere summer takes you. Super preppy and great colors. They also have girls and infant options. Find them here:


  • Red 36—I have heard good things about this restaurant in Mystic, CT. I feel like downtown Mystic is becoming quite the food hub. We loved The Engine Room and have quite a few places we want to try in this area.

That’s what I’m excited for and loving for this July. Bring on the summer fun!!

Until next time,
