MONTAUK: “A quaint drinking town by the sea with a fishing problem” If you know me personally or have been following the BLOG at all then you’re probably well aware of my eternal love & adoration for Montauk. There’s really nothing more I love in this world then spending time by the ocean with my family in this amazing & beautiful town. And while the “New Montauk” is quite different from what I remember as a child (and even further from what my father remembers from his childhood) there is still a lot of OLD MONTAUK charm left in the place. (I was about to draw on a metaphor connecting the Old Montauk Hwy & the New Montauk Hwy but I figure I’ll leave that for another time 😉 🙂 Over the summer, I will be sharing lots more about my love for Montauk but until then I thought I’d share this MONTAUK SWEATER with you! Happy Memorial Day Weekend & a Happy Start to Summer!
When I came across this sweater from Ellsworth & Ivey I knew I had to have it! If you spend any time in Montauk then you know the weather doesn’t really warm up until early July and the evenings are always on the chillier side even through August! So when I found this sweater I knew it would be perfect to bring along with me to the beach or to toss in my bag for sunset! If you summer in Nantucket check out this sweater which is currently available in Navy & Grey as well.
I ordered this particular pair of sandals during the last SHOPBOP SALE & I really love them! (especially the wide straps & cut-out flower detailing) They are on the more expensive side for sandals but I knew I wanted to invest in 2-3 quality pairs that I could wear all summer long & these are by far my favorites. They are currently on MAJOR SALE: here so I would snag them while you can.
A quality pair of white denim is a must. I’ve talked about my love for Mother Denim before & I’ll say it again this brand really knows how to make a flattering pair of jeans (especially for MOMS). This is the exact pair I’m wearing (that is only sold at SHOPBOP) I like the staggered raw-hem which gives this otherwise plain pair a little flare. I also have this distressed pair & this pair is currently 25% off
When it comes to affordable holiday & special occasion dressing for the little ones I love Smocked Auctions! (Get 20% off & free shipping this entire weekend with CODE: FLAG20) This is Rosie’s smocked bubble (that she’s wearing in the images above) & this pair of swim trunks is a really cute option for a little boy all summer long. I also did a whole post about my favorite smocking & patriotic styles which you can find: HERE
Memorial Day SALES: There are honestly sooooo many sales going over Memorial Day Weekend it’s kind of hard to keep track. I’ve highlighted 3 of my FAVORITE SALES with plenty of my top picks in this Memorial Day Sale Post & I will try to throw in another Sale post over the weekend. In the meantime 40% off SALE SECTIONS were just added to BOTH INTERMIX (if you are in need of dresses: here or here & ANTHROPOLOGIE (casual picks: here & here) Stay tuned for more favs!
