My favorite place to head for the weekend is Nantucket, the island is just magical. If you are lucky enough to visit for the weekend, pack light and casual. Depending on the weather, a typical day can involve anything from biking in the morning, relaxing on the beach, clambakes or dinner with friends. Always be prepared for a slight chill in the air and maybe a little bit of rain. My clothes can easily get dressed up or down and I am ready for whatever the day brings - as long as it's on Nantucket!
Lightweight and roomy - easy to have along no matter how we are traveling.
2 chic cover ups - I try to bring cover ups that do double duty as either a cute top paired with cropped jeans or something that can easily take me to town with flip flops in the afternoon.
1 pair of shorts
1 white denim skirt
3 tanks or t-shirts - to go with shorts, skirt and jeans
1 pair of cropped jeans - to wear to a clambake, sunset on the beach or iffy weather
1 tunic - perfect with jeans
2 dresses - 1 long and 1 short, both can be easily dressed up or down
1 linen shirt - goes over bathing suits or cover ups, or great with jeans/shorts with tank layered under
1 shorts romper - I always overpack but this is super cute and comfortable and ready to take me anywhere
Accessories and Extras:
1 metallic flip flop for day and night
1 metallic wedge sandal - cute with dresses and shorts and the wedge works on the cobblestone streets
1 beach tote - for the beach, biking and picnics
1 summer scarf - I am never without one
1 straw hat
1 long necklace
1 pair of gold hoops
headbands for bad hair weather
1 windbreaker or light rain coat
