Every time I visit New England in the summer, I fall in love with it again. The smaller, quainter beaches, the smell of the marshes, and those humid nights remind me that I'm home.
I took a quick trip back there this past weekend and spent time with my family between Newburyport and Wingersheek Beach. We had some cookouts, I collected shells with my niece in the tide pools, and aside from the ride home from Logan airport, I saw very little traffic. It was refreshing. And while I still took far too many photos and videos (I am an over-documenter for sure), it feels like a place that I can unplug. Whether it's a favorite hiking trail or a weekend trip across the country, I think it's really important to find time to recharge.
Today's outfit isn't from my days back east, mostly because I have tried to limit my blogging on trips like this, but it's perfectly classic and feels inspired by my love of New England. From the stripes to the midi length, it just screams Martha's Vineyard. I love wearing it because it feels like a little piece of home.
