Recently I spent a weekend visiting friends on Martha’s Vineyard. Their lovely home is in the quaint harbor town of Vineyard Haven, where ferries come and go all day, shuttling hordes of tourists to and from the island.
Even though the weather remained cloudy for most of my time there, at least it never rained. And the island is still beautiful, even when the sun doesn’t shine!

I loved this dress when I first spotted it at one of my wholesale vendors when sourcing dresses for my online boutique. When the shipment arrived I just had to keep one for myself. But I hadn’t worn it yet. It’s been sitting in my closet for months. When packing for this trip I pulled it out, thinking the island would be the perfect place to take it out for it’s first spin. It’s got a great 70s hippie chic vibe and has an adjustable drawstring empire waist which makes it so comfy to wear. Plus I love the length, which falls just at the ankle. I notice sometimes when I wear maxis combined with backless sandals or flip flops the bottom of the skirt catches between my heel and the shoe. Not so with this dress!
I added my tan Yellow Box “Nash” crochet wedge sandals, which I thought complemented the bohemian style of the dress nicely.
I didn’t bring my car over on the ferry with me, as it is cost prohibitive for just spending a few days there. So I did lots of walking, which was a good idea, since I needed to burn some calories after all the eating and drinking I did while there!
Here are a few shots I took while walking around town so you can get an idea of how pretty it is. Many people have beautiful gardens on their properties.
The Vineyard has lots of farm stands. This one in particular, Hillside Farm, was so adorable I had to take photos. Inside they had delectable specialty foods and all kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables they grow themselves.
And they’ve even got this cute lemonade stand outside.
Thought this was a very clever idea to re-purpose an old chair into a planter. The mosses really give it a nice touch. Reminds me of a forest floor.
Hope you enjoyed my Martha’s Vineyard pix.
