Memorial Day Memories: Goose Rocks Beach

Of course the first thing we do upon arrival in Kennebunkport is eat & drink - this Hendrick's and grapefruit was magical.
Tia's Topside had the most amazing al fresco dining with multiple outdoor deck space.
And then there was the interior decor. I mean, that wallpaper. I NEED it in my life.
Apologies for the terrible iPhone quality, but COME ON. Propeller fans, white wainscoting everywhere, heaven.

Kennebunkport proved to be my kind of place - found this at one of the cute little shops walking around town.  And I immediately regret not buying it; the book was clearly written for me.
Then we ventured over to Horseshoe Cove to explore the beach where I had come when I was much younger.
Just as gorgeous as I had remembered.

In my happy place, feeling very patriotic (just a day too early...).
Shirt: J.Crew | Linen Pants: J.Crew Factory (old) | Bag: Kate Spade (this year's version here, on sale!) | Shoes: Jack Rogers |  Jewelry: David Yurman, Vintage Coral Necklace, J.Crew Bangles, Priviledged NYC Chain Bracelet, DY Ring, Jennifer Zeuner Ring 
Lotsa baubles.

Taking it all in...

Once we checked in, we ventured out on a walk around the Goose Rocks neighborhood. I was totally in love with the detail on all of the cottages (/mansions, in some cases).
Sailboat shutters! And those Adirondack chairs are gorgeous.
Straight cheesin' with the flags - but since my outfit matched, I obviously couldn't resist!
I was definitely a little bummed that it was  too cold for a beach day after seeing this view.

Posing with my new all-time favorite inn.
Our two year anniversary (huge) dinner at On the Marsh was topped off by an Irish Car Bomb cupcake - perfectly served with a mini glass milk bottle and striped paper straw. Perfection.
More to come later on the rest of our weekend - and of course, my obsession with the Tides Beach Club (it needs it's own post, obviously!).


  1. Looks like you have a great weekend. So pretty there! I love your outfit. You can never go wrong with a gingham button down!

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog -- so glad it lead me to yours, it's adorable!

    1. Thank you! I've been lurking on your blog for a little while and as a fellow Bostonian, how could I not love it? I crack a smile at every mention of girls in Jacks - 99% of the time I am wearing them too; such a stereotype in my own city :)


Thank you so much for your sweet comments - each one truly makes my day!
