After Nantucket, we ventured over to Martha's Vineyard. I had known about Edgartown from other bloggers and I thought I would try it out. The town was absolutely amazing and I wish we had spent more time there! This outfit was what I wore riding bikes around the island (note: white jeans don't go well with dirty bikes). I'm pretty sure I spent the entire vacation in my white Jack Rogers.  They were so comfortable but as always, super stylish. We also snapped some pictures in front of this amazing house near the beach. Where do I sign up to live there?!

Travel Tuesday: Nantucket

Earlier this month, as many of you remember, Andrew and I went to Nantucket  (and other places, but we'll get to that later). Today, I wanted to create a little guide from our time on the island. We're already yearning to go back! 

RELAX: We originally planned on heading to Nantucket on the 4th, but Hurricane Arthur got in the way so we postponed the trip to the next day. Good thing we did because we couldn't have asked for better weather! Our first (and main) stop was on the beach. I had read amazing reviews about Cisco Beach and it wasn't too far away on our bikes (about a 30 minute ride). We were on the island really early in the morning which meant we had the beach to ourselves. It was easily one of the best beaches I have ever seen.

EXPLORE: After the beach we went to Cisco Brewery. This place was off a dirt road, but we found it to be a big party spot! There I had my first (but definitely not last) lobster roll. It was from a food truck but it was the best lobster roll I've ever had. I devoured it in less than a minute.

After the brewery, we strolled around town and stopped to take photos, eat some ice cream, shop and wait for our boat ride.

PLAY: Next was our sailboat ride around Nantucket. This was probably the coolest thing we did on the trip and one of my favorite adventures. I found Endeavor Sailing while researching fun things to do on the island. I highly recommend it! The Captain was so nice, the water was beautiful and it was relatively inexpensive for how cool the ride was.

EAT: For dinner, we stayed near the boat basin and ate at Cru. I'm really getting more into seafood and this place was the place for me! The decor was so nautical I never wanted to leave and the food was ah-mazinggggg. I highly recommend it if you're ever in the area! It was so nice to have dinner on the water too!

DESSERT: To finish our trip, we waited in line for 45 minutes to get ice cream from The Juice Bar and it was totally worth the wait. I was still full from dinner so I only got a kid-size cake batter cone, but I really wish I forced myself to eat more. It was the best ice cream I've ever had!

And that concludes our trip to Nantucket. I hope you enjoyed the recap because I enjoyed the trip! Thanks to all for the great recommendations, too. It was so helpful. Until next time.

Sunday Funday:
After winning a weekend series in college baseball, the team will party Sunday night because they can rest on their required Monday off day.

After the weekend I had with Caitlin, I'm ready to relax. We maybe got six hours of sleep the whole weekend but it was totally worth it. So what does little sleep mixed with a fashionable friend (read: must look cute at all times) get you? This outfit. These shorts are like pajama shorts that are acceptable to wear in public. They're so flowy and oh-so comfortable! Paired with a good panama hat and my pink Jack Rogers, I was ready to go. I'm usually not a big fan of pink, but when paired with my favorite color (blue) I found myself liking the neon color -- it's perfect for summer!

MWM - Sun field

Welcome to another edition of Menswear Monday. Andrew has been gracious enough to write a weekly post for Covering the Bases. Enjoy!

Pullover: Vineyard Vines c/o | Shorts: J. Crew | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Flip Flops: Rainbow

Sun field:
Area of the playing field where the sun shines into the eyes of the defense.

Normally during day games in the summer, you will see a portion of the diamond where players are all wearing sunglasses. The way stadiums are built, the sun will either be directly in the eyes of the left or right side of the field.

In these photos, Krista is essentially shooting into the sun. Despite making my legs look severely emaciated, the effect worked well.

The photos were taken on Nantucket, and I fit right in with these duds. First, the pullover is from Vineyard Vines. I can't get over how comfortable this thing is. Light enough to wear during a breezy summer day, but substantial enough for cool, autumn evenings, I'll be getting a lot of mileage out of this quarter-zip this season. I'd highly recommend this if you're looking for something quick and stylish to throw over whatever it is you're wearing when the temperature falls a few degrees.

The shorts are from J. Crew Factory and were part of the summer-wardrobe overhaul I did at the demand request of Krista. The Rainbow sandals make their debut today. I've never owned a pair until last month, and now I don't know if I'll ever buy another pair of sandals again. I wear them everywhere.

To answer your question, yes, I am actually that bowlegged. It's horrifying.
