Cape Cod Style

I took my first trip to Cape Cod over Labor Day weekend, and it was exactly as I had imagined: a quaint town full of hydrangeas and picture-perfect clapboard homes.


We stayed with friends in West Dennis and had the chance to explore nearby downtown Chatham. My friend Fenton found adorable lemon earrings at a local beach shop. Fun statement earrings are so perfect to wear on vacation! Also making an appearance is my “Beach Birkin” ( I painted this bag by hand and couldn’t wait to finally reveal the finished product at the beach!


I left my trip feeling inspired by the preppy and all-American atmosphere of Cape Cod. This sketch was inspired by a photo Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam in Nantucket. Her classic style is just what one would expect to find on the Cape. I’m definitely investing in nautical stripes and floppy beach hats for my next trip to the East Coast!
