MID SUMMER IN MARTHA'S VINEYARD

Monday, August 14, 2017




I'm excited for my first post in my Travel series to take me back to a place that I consider my second home. Since I was a kid, my family and I have been going to the Cape and Islands summer after summer, just as my dad did as a child. It's a place that I hold close to my heart and a place that I no doubt will continue to frequent as an adult. I try not to get ahead of myself since I'm only 21 but I definitely have been looking into my own property here. The style of architecture is beautiful in my opinion and the oceanfront properties lined with indigo hydrangeas are breathtaking. Those familiar with the Hampton's understand- it's more than a vacation destination. It's a lifestyle.





One of my favorite things about shopping while on holiday is that there are always independent boutiques. I think that boutique shopping is so much fun, you always find unique things that you won't find anywhere else. I saw a straw beach tote stitched with "Herm├Ęs Paris", it was so cute but sadly, not my style. The Jack Wills store never disappoints me while I'm here, it's not a store that I normally check for when I'm in Toronto, but they always seem to have something that I can work into my holiday wardrobe. EDGAR is another boutique by Kelly House which is a trendy hotel and bar- with lifestyle and wellness products, and fashion- it truly just epitomizes summertime.


This sitting area is the patio at one of my favorite lifestyle and wellness boutiques in Edgartown called SALTE. They are the sister store to fashion boutique SLATE. They carry some of my favorite brands such as BITCHSTIX, Annie Selke, Le Feu De L'eau, and Vineyard Bath Company. I usually stop in here a few times and pick up all my essentials. The "beach" diffuser from VBC is something I can't live without in my bathroom wherever I go.


I also want to shout out Ford, for the Mustang. I'm usually a Jeep person while I'm on holiday but I switched it up and went with this- by default because I waited too long to reserve a Jeep. The convertible was a lot of fun while driving around in the sun. Honestly... it made me think about getting one for Toronto.
