Summer Trip up North

Sorry, I am the slowest blogger these days-this might be the most delayed post ever...  I am back to reality after a whirlwind trip up north to catch up with my Newport roommates.  It was such a fun time and a bonus is that some of my Miami friends were there as well.  It's always interesting when my worlds collide.

First stop after the airport with Sue was a visit to Denise and I finally got to meet sweet little Caroline.  She was so adorable.

First lobster roll...

Thursday, we headed out towards the Cape and to the ferry.  Even with the best planning, we still cut it too close and couldn't find a parking spot.  Shannon and Heidi were already there holding our tickets.  We parked and ran to the ferry and the guys holding the ropes were screaming at us to hurry up.  It was so embarrassing..luckily we made it and when I tell you the minute our feet touched the ferry, they pulled away, I am not exaggerating!

We got to Nantucket after lunch and got the shuttle to our hotel.  I headed back into town to walk around and met up with Tara.  We went out for a fun dinner at Brandt Point Grill and for drinks at Ventuno.  Went to bed to get up at the crack for the Lilly Sale at In The Pink.

We were in line at 8:30 and were numbers 6 and 7.  It was a little crazy.

That night we went to the Galley to watch the sunset.
Lisa came with me and met the rest of the girls.

We went to Cru for dinner and watch the opening ceremony for the Olympics.
Saturday, lots of shopping and walking around. I am saving my shopping pics for a separate post.

We visited Town Pool, so fun and right near the Straight Wharf.  Lots of action at Town Pool.

Dinner at Millie's, one of my favorite places...

Zaria and her family outside their amazing house.  I ended up staying with them for most of my trip.  It was so nice and fun to hang with Zaria on Nantucket!

Goodbyes before we left...

We got back to Boston and I got dropped off at South Station to catch the train to Providence.  Very proud of myself that I able to navigate all this transportation (obviously I had help).  Brooke and the girls met me in Providence and we walked to their place.  So happy to see them.

Monday morning, we were out and about and heading to Newport.  It is crazy to me that for the last few years, I have made it to Newport for just the day.  I begged the girls to indulge me with lunch at the Cooke House, my favorite.  They were serving my favorite summer salad...

Bannister's Wharf was a little quiet.

The shops were as cute as I remember them to be.
It was so fun to hang out with Brittan and Barrett.

One store I couldn't wait to check out was the CK Bradley Pop up Store.  I had been seeing pictures all summer in Instagram and it was just as adorable in person.

Tons of clothes and accessories all in her signature colorful prints.

She shared her Co-Pop Up shop with Cece DuPraz and all her fabulous monogramming..

and Sugar Jewelry by Heidi Brueggeman

If you are near by, they are having a huge sale starting today!

We drove by First Beach on our way out of Newport..such a fun place to be in the summer.  Our next stop was the Matouk outlet.  Yikes, I could have spent all my money there.  I restrained myself and only bought new hand towels for monogramming and a gorgeous new beach towel.

What a fun trip!
I loved seeing all my summer friends.
xoxo, kp
