I took a mini-break after the Fourth of July and made my way down to the Cape for the weekend. It was perfect Summer weather with warm days and cool nights, and plenty of beach time. I cautiously dipped my toes in the water (have you heard about the sharks?) and enjoyed spending some time with old friends over cocktails and BBQs. What sort of Summer fun did you have this weekend?
Some of my favorite bloggers are sharing their summer entertaining essentials for being a savvy hostess this season, up next in the series is my Boston buddy, Erika of Radiant Republic:
While my fiancé and I love visiting with friends in the city, most summer weekends are spent on Cape Cod. Our daytime wardrobes consist of bathing suits and boat shoes I sit down to dinner in a breezy dress and Jack Rogers. Summer entertaining is equally easy – and our favorite venue is on the sand of our favorite beach. Most hot days, our friends boat out to a hard-to-reach beach, anchor for the day, and spend hours playing bocce, seal watching, and floating in the cool Atlantic waters.
Three: Chanel bocce ball. Disclaimer: This is not the set that we own (obviously.)
Four: Lilly Pulitzer tumblers are perfect for beach gatherings.
Five: Every Cape Cod-er needs a virtually indestructible LL Bean Boat Tote for lugging summer accoutrements.
Six: We love these beach chairs by the Cape Cod Beach Chair Company!
What are your summer entertaining must-haves? Thank you so much for having me today, Kate! I am a big fan of your new series and can’t wait to see what the other guest bloggers come up with! xx
I’m very excited to kick-off a new series on the blog today where some of my favorite bloggers are going to share their summer entertaining essentials for being a savvy hostess this season. Kicking off the series is my new friend Sarah of Chevrons and Stripes!
I was so excited when Kate invited me to guest post on my summer entertaining style because I absolutely live for the summer social season (phew, that was a lot of s’s)! I’ve spent every summer since I was born at my parent’s beach house in Bridgehampton, NY and below are a few of our BBQ and bonfire essentials. Stock up folks, because beach season is upon us!

Are you counting down for the long weekend like me? Memorial Day is always a signal for me that Summer is officially here — which means days at the beach are just around the corner! Are you hitting the shore this weekend? Which beach look would you choose?
I took a day trip with the family over the weekend to Block Island — one of my favorite places in the world. It had been almost 6 years since I had last visited so I had a fun time rediscovering the picturesque Victorian main street and taking in the harbor views. I was happy to see that while some things had changed since my last visit, the charm of the island remained the same.
We all know that beach season is upon us, and while I dread the mental breakdown moment of trying on a new bathing suit under the flourescent lights of the dressing rooms, I do get quite excited for beach accessories. I pulled together some very fashionable beach towels to share with you today; I say decorate everything, even your little patch of sand on the beach! Tell me, which one is your favorite? I’m partial to ikat and polka dots — love my prints!
I’m packing up for a long weekend on Cape Cod and am a little disappointed that the weather isn’t quite warm enough for most of my summer attire. So I’m bringing some beachy accessories to get me in the seaside mood and layer on my striped-tees and nantucket reds. There are so many variations on the starfish bauble, below are a few of my favorites of the preppy-staple:
The snow is really getting the better of me. My “hey it could be worse” optimism fairy has flown the coop after standing out in the snow for 45 minutes waiting for the bus this morning, the crankiness is creeping in as my fingers and toes thaw.
It makes me wonder, how did so many people decide to live in Boston, when there are all these other parts of the country with beaches and temperatures that never drop below freezing. Beachy daydreams are top of mind for me, I’m gripping my hot coffee and going someplace warm in my head, like the subjects of these Christian Chaize prints I’ve been eyeing on 20×200.
