Polka Shell

Sweater: Kiel James Patrick, Dress: Walker & Wade c/o Sandals: Alexandre Birman Bag: Aranaz Earrings: Rebecca de Ravenal  (similar) Glasses: Gucci Bracelets: Tohum, Van Cleef & Arpels

Location: Nantucket
Styled snapshots from my short trip to Nantucket this summer. I’ve worn the dress featured in this post quite a bit over the last couple of months. It’s lightweight, flouncy, and works perfectly as both a beach cover up and dress. The Walker & Wade line carries lots of colorful, fun dress prints and is made for dressing from the beach to dinner afterwards. I dressed mine up with my oversized shell earrings which I can’t get enough of. I had a smaller shell earring last summer and sadly broke them — after months of hunting for another pair I tracked these down (sadly sold out). I didn’t expect the shells to be so large but I really love that they are. I’m always asked if they are heavy but they are surprisingly light. They are a great statement piece. I’m being extra careful with this pair!

    Those are such fun earrings! Looks perfect with Nantucket as the backdrop 🙂 I also have a favorite dress or two that I have been wearing on repeat this summer! Fall feels like it is settling in, but we still have a few more weeks of summer, so the cute sun dresses can stay, haha!! Have a great, Sarah!

    My husband and I are headed to Newport and Nantucket in a couple of weeks. What type weather should be expect. We are from the South and it is hot here and will be for at least another month.

      Hi! Perfect time of year to visit. The weather will likely be in the 70’s with lower temps of 60’s to 50’s during the night. I would def pack light coats, pants, and sweaters. Nantucket is always a tad cooler. Have a great trip!

    This dress is beautiful for dressing up or down! And those earrings are gorgeous! Wish they weren’t sold out, or I’d definitely be buying a pair today!

      Thank you! I wish they came out with more of them. I’ve been so careful not to break this pair.
