Sunset at the Lighthouse

September 19, 2018

Martha’s Vineyard is divided into Up-Island and Down-Island.   Down-Island is where most of the towns are, and Up-Island is far more spread out, private and unspoiled.   At the tip of the Island is the Indian Reservation, Gay Head, now known as Aquinnah which is known for its clay red cliffs and natural beauty.    The first summer I ever spent here with my family (the year of my 13th birthday), we stayed in a cabin just down the road from…

Pretty Fall Planting Inspiration

September 18, 2018

The nurseries on Island are so vast and beautiful, they are worth a visit even if you are not a resident.  Because we have been here for so long, we have been collecting a few potted plants which we feel would thrive here which will be nice for our family who will be filling into the house after we go.    It has been a pleasure to explore what’s in bloom, what might last here compared to the hot and…

Easy Weekend Wear for Fall

September 14, 2018

Sunflower season is upon us and it always reminds me of fall on Martha’s Vineyard.   We had our wedding celebration here on Island 5 years ago at the start of October and our rehearsal dinner celebration was full of bright, glorious sunflowers, red checkered table cloths and apple cider cocktails.   I will see if I can find us that recipe because it was delicious and so suitable and warming. We are busy prepping the house for Will’s parents who arrive…

The Perfect Velvet Trousers for Fall

September 13, 2018

Perfect End of Summer Sweater

September 5, 2018

And just like that, the Island is quiet and a cooler breeze has picked up.    The towns have cleared out after the holiday weekend, shops and cafes are closing for the season, and the house feels particularly still without my father’s family and the dog, Buster.  It is still blissful weather and it was lovely to be able to throw on an easy, light cashmere sweater over my dress today on our afternoon work break walk around town. I…

Weekly Roundup: August 27th-31st

August 31, 2018

        It has been a week of cut off denim shorts and easy summer dresses paired with espadrille slides, white sneakers or my favorite wedges.    This blue flowy dress was the highlight of the week and I am including some similar pieces to those which are now out of stock.  I have also included a few beauty products which I am currently re-stocking because I love them so much. Hope everybody has fun plans for this…
