Off to Boston, Nantucket + Cape Cod!





Tomorrow morning Sam and I are off to the northeast to tour Boston, Cape Cod and Nantucket.  Sam has always wanted to see a Red Sox baseball game,  and I've always wanted to experience the preppy aesthetic of the coastal area.  Together we have a "North American Bucket List" of places we've always wanted to see, and Boston and the surrounding areas top the list!  Having followed the blogs of Erika, Erin, Mackenzie, and Miss Chic Geek for awhile now, I'm certainly in love with their northeastern-inspired style.    

Here's what's on my packing list:


After Sunset: Gerald Yoska Earrings $165/J Crew Silk Dress $350/I Love You Leather Papaya Pouch $195/

Beach Side:  Polka Dot Bikini $370/Jack Rogers Navajo Palm Beach Sandals $110/Shiseido Oil-Free UV Sunscreen SPF 42 $30

Sightseeing: Miu Miu Tortoise Shell Sunglasses $370/Topshop White Tank $50/Stacy Neon Checked Skirt $335/Nine West Wedges $64.99

I can't wait to enjoy a much-needed vacation and see the sites!  If you have any recommendations for Boston, Cape Cod or the Nantucket area, please share!  We are kind of flying by the seat of our pants and referencing this book for ideas.

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Those pictures are beautiful. I've been all over this country...minus the northeast! Well, I was in cape cod while in my mom's belly, but I don't think that really counts. I need to make a point of venturing out that way. Enjoy!

  2. Oh I'm so excited you get to explore my adopted city! I love Boston and it's very walkable and (overall) welcoming.

    The weekend is supposed to be nice weather before the rain starts again! Lucky you :) In Boston, my favorite restaurant (very close to the Common) is Marliave. The French-American menu is wonderful, they do dollar oysters 4-6 pm and 9-10 pm every day, and the cocktails are killer! My favorites are Tres Cureaux and the Boston Tea Party.

    Of course, Newbury Street shopping, a picnic in the Public Gardens, a walk on the Freedom Trail and a Red Sox game are musts (hint: take the T to Kenmore and it's a short walk. Don't drive yourself nuts taking the T to Fenway...a lot of people think you need to take it to the Fenway stop!). Enjoy!!

  4. This sounds like such an awesome trip! Every time I head to the east coast it is typically just to go to NYC but have been wanting to see more for years. I once went to Newport Rhode Island and it is AMAZING. Def somewhere I want to go back.

  6. I grew up on the Cape, and still have a second home there. It's not too warm yet and I doubt you'll be going swimming. Where on the Cape are you going? Osterville has 2 restaurants we love: the Islander, overlooking Crosby's boat yard. Also Five Bays in the village. fancy's is a cute little gourmet shop/grocer with to go food and sandwiches.

  12. I love your blog <3 I was born in Boston but moved to Ireland when I was four, we haven't been back since so other than a few memories of toddler ballet and the children's museum, I have no memories of Boston. I'd love to go back and visit sometime soon.
    Have fun! X

  13. Enjoy your vacation! It's been years since I've been to Boston + Cape Cod, so my recommendations are a bit outdated.
