Daytrippin' to Nantucket

I'm still having flashbacks to my first trip to Nantucket just last week. The day, really, was pretty much as perfect as it could get. The weather was sunshiney and breezy. The company was fun loving and comfortable and the food + shopping were right up my alley. I sort of don't know where to start when I'm trying to express how much I loved Nantucket and can't wait to take my husband back. We can start with the picturesque views. From the fast ferry ride over, to the quaint corners waiting for us when we got there, everything was just lovely... the island was full of life, in every corner, on our day trip out.

We jaunted around the island tasting fudge, shopping, sipping on iced coffees, snapping photos and of course, shopping some more. Actually, I'm still regretting leaving behind a gorgeous Sara Campbell Necklace (pictured below)... Don't they say if you're still thinking about it, it's meant to be? In any event, the shopping on island is two thumbs up... and actually, I feel like I only got to see a small fraction of the shops when we were definitely an efficient traveling group of ladies on the move.

Shopping aside, the food was just everthing too. Fresh Oyesters, lobster rolls, italian ice, time perfected on island fudge, artisan pizzas... I ate my weight in deliciousness and all outdoors. It was actually pretty splendid and an escape from my norm. I can't remember the last time that I ate at a leisurely pace and it was all sorts of wonderful. I'd love to head bACK just to try more flavors of my new Summer crush, ICE Nantucket. I bet you could head on island just to eat and be contented with you trip!

As I mentioned, the company I kept on this trip was top notch. I loved getting to know some local bloggers better and meeting some new gals, too! Here are some of my favorite social snaps from my Nantucket partners in crime for the day: Jessica of Oh I Design, Faith of Design-Fixation, Vanessa of City Girl Guide and Celina of Trends and Tolstoy and of course, me!
