Nantucket Shopping List: Vacation or Bust




The New England island with preppy roots (think Nantucket reds, and we aren't talking lobster), pristine beaches, luxe dining and shopping, all rolled into the ultimate zip code for the elite when they want to summer and escape it all. Or the renters, like us, who are exploring the island summer by summer, rental by rental!

Time to break free of Lilly P only dress codes and branch out with chic tunics, cover ups, and luxe items that will easily transition from a day at the beach to cocktails and bivalves at Cru.

Dressing the Baby Bump Week 29 + Boston Weekly

Above: Hatch 'the Lily' dress, Chanel bag (I'll only get away with purchases like this carrying a baby on Mother's Day;), Celine espadrille




Who: As in, who am I listening to.  Jessie Baylin, and the entire Dark Place album. Current fave, London Times. Quick facts: third album, married to Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Fallowill, dedicated to her toddler Violet.


What: As in, what went down this week/end. 

Everyone is away! Which means that life is slowing down, just in time for me to cook this babe. Can't believe how big I am right now at 29 weeks- pretty much what Daphne was at full term. I don't know where this baby plans to go but space is at a premium here. 

Lots of BBQ's (we have been grilling pizza on the Green Egg, a life changing experience) and surprise parties. Cooked up a storm so I have some fresh recipes to share soon. Been experimenting with some gluten free, less sugar, more whole food type fare and I have to admit, it doesn't suck. Check out Babycakes and Baking with Less Sugar from Flour Bakery's Joanne Chang for where I am getting most of my ideas.....


Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about.  

Louis Boston closes its doors forever, tears, Wednesday July 1. Get on over for 60% off.

Boutikey hosts their summer kick off party Wednesday July, 5-8, in the Fens at 1369 Boylston Street. 

Simon Premium Outlets locations will host their annual July sidewalk sale, Thursday July 2- Sunday the 5th. Worth a trip to Wrentham, me thinks (Merrimac location playing along as well!).

Viola Lovely summer sale is on. Headed right over for some maternity friendly Raquel Allegra.

Five More Independent Children's Lines you NEED to Know


Image: Hugo Loves Tiki


This adorable line, Hugo Loves Tiki, has basics with all the French phrasing Francophiles like me crave. With a few styles for la mere for good measure. C'est trop mignon! 


Image: Sekilola


Though I am loath to share one of my best kept secrets, it is just too cute not to include. Etsy shop Sekilola is my go-to space for Frida-inspired accessories, baby turbans, and flower crowns galore. Trust me, you need more of these than you think. I have been faithful since Daphne was a babe and the goods just keep getting chicer.


Image: Thief & Bandit Clothes


I often find myself wishing the line Thief & Bandit made adult sizes.  On trend and simply too adorable to pass up. From cactus print to fringed leggings, they have everything your hip babe could ever need. 


Image: Bobo Choses


Let's wrap things up with one of the larger brands in this round up. Bobo Choses is based in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Barcelona. The language of cool kids' clothing is quite universal though, and I am a sucker for anything with a good eye print. No seriously, I have an entire pin board devoted to the topic. Shop for the brand online or at small authorized retailers state side.

Brooklyn-based Atsuyo et Akiko is a collaborative of designers producing adorable T-shirts, tutus to-die-for, and the occasional bead-and-sequin-crusted tiara. My daughter is a huge fan of the clothes and accessories. Also, be sure to check out their designer collabs— cutting edge.
