I feel such a big surge of hometown pride whenever I stumble across amazing places on the Cape like the Salt House Inn in Provincetown. Aside from summer traffic, I think the only downfall to growing up on the Cape is that you don’t get to play tourist often enough.
It would be pretty indulgent to book a stay when my parent’s house is just a few towns over, but I’m so tempted. The owners did an amazing job of modernizing a quintessential B&B while still retaining all of the New England charm you’d expect at a smaller inn.
The design is perfection. It’s cozy and inviting and the pieces feel collected over time. I especially appreciate the subtle nautical touches. Sometimes coastal designs can be a bit too thematic with starfish and anchors everywhere. The Salt House Inn feels authentic.
Who’s ready to book a trip? I’m off to Virginia to celebrate my sister’s graduation. Have a great weekend!

The middle of February is about the time when the last vestiges of my summer tan have faded away and I start going through bottles of Keihls in an attempt to put some moisture back into my dry winter skin.
I desperately miss my college days when a trip to somewhere tropical was only a few weeks away. I’m more than a little jealous of my sister’s upcoming trip to Sint Maarten and would happily take her finals for her if it meant I could join!
If I were to make like a snowbird and head south, the items above are what you would find in my dream suitcase. A scalloped bikini and kaftan in a hue to match the crystal clear waters and lace shorts to compliment my tan (because that’s what it’s all about, right?)
Since I’m itching to hop a flight, I was happy to share this getaway inspired Love List with you as part of Diet Pepsi’s #sharethelove campaign. I couldn’t be more on board with their mission of doing more of what you love everyday. Travel might not be in my everyday, but I’d certainly like to do more of it in 2013.
Are you hoping a flight anytime soon? Where to?
Go ahead, make me jealous!
I always look forward to emails from 1st Dibs. They have the most fascinating articles on my favorite tastemakers and truly do showcase “the most beautiful things on earth.” Style Compass is always the highlight for me.
Recently, India Hicks, one of my personal style icons, was featured. I’ve posted about her charmed life before and you’ve likely seen her Harbour Island home in Lonny but I just can’t get enough.
Her easy, breezy coastal style is equal parts classic elegance and island charm. A winning combination in my opinion. Her custom colored coral faced Rolex is the perfect example. Oh what I’d give for that beauty..
Work has been particularly challenging this week (read frustrating.. is it Memorial Day Weekend yet?!) so I’m taking a little mental vacation courtesy of J.Crew’s Bali Adventure travelogue. What I wouldn’t give for an exotic escape and a suitcase filled with those beautiful outfits! If anyone else is having a rough week I hope these photos will give you a brief respite from your work day. After all, it is almost Friday!
Remember earlier last week when I was daydreaming about a summer trip to Maine? Well my wheels haven’t stopped spinning and I think we’re going to try and make this happen! In researching potential places to stay, I came across the Captain Fairfield Inn and immediately fell in love. Designed by Rachel Reider the 9 room bed and breakfast is the perfect mix of old world charm and modern style and sensibility.
After spending some more time researching, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Inn was featured in Rue Magazine’s Holiday Issue (76-88). I envision myself sleeping quite well with that zebra headboard or David Hicks La Fiorentina drapes coloring my surroundings.
Have you been to the Kennebunkport area? I’d love to hear your tips!
