Charleston Style, Part 1.

I’ve mentioned it here before but Charleston, South Carolina has become such a special place to me. The food, the architecture, the history… but most importantly – the people! It’s really strange as I have only been three times now (the first time being just over a year ago, last October) but I feel like I’ve been going there forever.

The Chanler at Cliff Walk.

I’m kind of at a loss with today’s post about Newport, Rhode Island. It was just so incredible. Last week, The Chanler invited a group of us (Jess, Billie, Abigail & Emily)  for a two night stay. They planned a jam packed itinerary of site-seeing, sipping, and eating… and I jumped at the opportunity to go. Having grown up on Cape Cod and lived in Boston and New York, it’s a pretty popular place to visit.

Hudson, New York.

Last week, Garnet Hill invited Christine, Krystal, and I up to their house in Hudson Valley for a little mid-week escape. I’d never been to Hudson, but had been dying to go as it has always sounded like the perfect little city escape. I was right. The town of Hudson is fantastic (so many cute shops, restaurants, etc) and our house in Chatham was picture perfect.

Blustery Nantucket Weekend.

This past weekend, my friend Sam invited a group of us girls up to her family’s house on Nantucket. It was my first time visiting the island, which is a little bit embarrassing considering that I grew up on Cape Cod. I don’t know why we never went as kids, or when I was in college, but it just never happened! We were up at 4am to be on the road at 4:45 and beat all of the traffic, arriving at the ferry station by 9am…

Kauai North Shore… Like a Local.

As you might have seen from Instagram, I spent the first week or so of September in Hawaii. I mentioned in this post (with a few more photos!) that my good friend Jackie got married there. The wedding was incredible, but the best part was that her and her husband stuck around for the week after to show us all the most incredible time. We ate like locals, drank like locals, and saw some of the coolest stuff.

Aloha Kauai.

Greetings from Kauai! I have a few longer posts planned from our trip but I couldn’t resist popping in this afternoon to share a few pics from our trip thus far. Kauai has been amazing. Our friends Jackie + Tom (the couple who got married) stuck around this week and have been showing us the most incredible time. Jackie grew up here, so she has been taking us to all of her favorite beaches + off the beaten path spots…
