Fun fact: the movie Jaws was filmed in Martha’s Vineyard, specifically Edgartown! Take away the terror of the great white shark, and focus in on the cute town from the movie: quaint, charming little white houses line the streets, it’s familiar and everyone seems to know each other, and nautical, patriotic style can be found everywhere. That’s exactly what you get with Edgartown and I’m positive that the city has not changed since Jaws was filmed here, or even since it was a whaling community back in the 1800s. In fact, many of the homes are historical and date back to that time period when ship captains used to live in Edgartown and used the city as their home base.
Needless to say, we loved walking the streets of this charming city. Around every corner, we seemed to discover another house that we dubbed our favorite, or a cute little store that had its own unique personality. Rhododendrons and hydrangeas lined the houses and streets; Brandon and I quickly fell head over heels in love with the sights and charms of Edgartown.
J. Crew Summer Style
In packing for this trip, I shared with you guys that lots of feminine dresses would be coming along and J. Crew has quite the collection this summer! I had a hard time picking one and thought that I’d take a moment to share my favorites with ya’ll. I’ve really been loving the midi length lately, especially for travel! I find myself not having to worry about the dress riding up, being too exposed (perfect for a Europe trip when you may be going in churches and cathedrals), and I just like the length for summer! My lilac dress is currently on sale and all of these others would make a great summer addition to your closet.
