Earlier this year some of our closest friends gave us the news that they would be moving to the east coast for school. We were devastated when they told us, especially since they likely wouldn't be able to visit home for the next 16 months. We decided then and there to plan a trip to see them. We're so excited to see them again, as well as explore some new spots! In September, Ben and I will be touring 5 east coast cities starting with Boston. While we're in that area, we are hoping to visit either Cape Cod or Martha's Vineyard. Now ever since the first time I saw "Jaws" as a kid (which was filmed in Martha's Vineyard) I have always been in love with small coastal towns. The ocean side cottages look like they're from a dream, and sitting on a deck eating a warm lobster roll while wearing a knit sweater sounds perfect to me.
Since this vacation is constantly on my mind, I can't help but incorporate nautical and classic elements to my wardrobe, especially considering the weather. This all white ensemble is something I would love to wear with some espadrilles while exploring the streets of Nantucket, or having dinner next to the water. I paired it with The Albany - a gorgeous espresso colored leather cross body bag from Fold Leather Co. I also couldn't help but include some peonies too - a true summer staple!
I couldn't be more excited to take this bag along with me to the east coast. There's nothing worse than having to lug around a heavy purse, particularly when trekking a big city. This cross body's high quality leather and smart design will be the perfect companion for toting the essentials like my phone, wallet, keys, sunglasses and lip balm. Now because I love Fold Leather Co. so much, I've teamed up with them for a giveaway of their Nashville wallet in Buckskin. You're going to absolutely love it!
