A Day in Sconset

This summer, I took two of my favorite trips to date… both to Nantucket! In July, Allison and I went to Nantucket and had an actual blast and a half! We had so many amazing meals, spent lovely time at the beach, went fishing, caught up with girlfriends Mackenzie and Ali, and so much more! We stayed right in the heart of town so we could walk everywhere. We also just went back to Nantucket last weekend and Allison got surprised (she didn’t expect a thing!)! Both trips, some of our favorite days though were spent around Sconset. All I can say is that a day in Sconset is a dream! The shingled homes range from adorable little cottages to huge homes with ocean views. The hydrangeas are abundant and the climbing roses are everywhere. It is an absolutely fabulous place to bike ride around too. In Sconset, I also recommend lunch at Claudette’s, ice cream at Sconset Market, shopping at CJ Laing, and drinks at Summer House!

This summer, I got really into wrap dresses. They are so chic and light and breathable in warm climates. I wore this floral wrap dress from Club Monaco while we tootled around Sconset and it was perfect (on sale! also comes in a top & a skirt)! If you read my Savannah Travel Guide, then you may recognize this dress from my trip there. I also wore it for a day touring around that marvelous city (which was perfect because it was quite warm there!). Allison wore a blue and white dress from Reformation. It has sadly already sold out but I found a handful of similar dresses for you here: one, two, three, four, five, six.

This probably won’t come as a surprise, but we both wore straw bags out for the day (remember our straw bags here?)! I snagged mine in the early spring but it sold out almost immediately (I actually don’t know how I even got it!). However, my round purse was recently rereleased so you can make it yours too! Allison got her purse last summer in Bali but I found the perfect lookalike purse.

Since I’m always a sucker for statement earrings, I wore bon bon earrings around the island. They are so lightweight that they don’t even feel like a statement earring! Mine are sold out but I found these four almost identical pairs: one, two, threefour.

When in Sconset, I highlight recommend bike riding around. The last time I went to Nantucket, two years ago with Sarah, we rode bikes from town (a 7-8 mile ride). Be sure to bike up to Sankaty lighthouse along Baxter Road to catch a glimpse of the big beautiful houses in the neighborhood. In Sconset, I also recommend lunch at Claudette’s, ice cream at Sconset Market, shopping at CJ Laing, and drinks at Summer House! I’m telling you, you’ll never be happier than while spending a day on Sconset!
