Iconic East Coast

With summer on the horizon, I cannot help but begin to think about the beach and all the perfect things associated with summer. We are fortunate on the east coast to have a myriad of quintessential beach towns and escapes. When I think of iconic east coast, I think of places such as the Hamptons- with its beautiful homes, beaches, hydrangea lined gardens, and effortless, sophisticated style.


Other inherently east coast places that come to mind for me are Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Newport and Cape Cod. All of these locations embody the same nautical, preppy style. I have not been to any of the 3 previously mentioned locations, but would love to make a visit. I have only heard amazing things. I already have my eye on the "41 North" hotel in Newport, RI. It looks absolutely stunning with the marina as a backdrop.


All of this thinking about summer on the east coast reminded me of my favorite coastal styles, namely navy and nantucket red. I inspired a look that would be a perfect choice for any of the destinations above. Chinos, a polo, and a light cardigan for chilly mornings or evenings- nothing can get more simple! I love the detailing of the monogrammed logo on the pocket of the polo as compared to a traditional pony. Aviators and navy drivers to match the polo tie the look together for the perfect east coast prep outfit.
