This week’s photos are from a recent trip my children and I took to visit my grandmother, who lives on Martha’s Vineyard. This is the perfect time of year to visit there. The weather is usually beautiful, the crowds are a bit smaller than they tend to be in the peak of the tourist season, and the water is still warm enough that you can enjoy the beach.

This outfit is a very simple one, yet it very much represents my personal style. It is everyday elegance at it’s core.


I wore a simple navy long sleeved T-shirt. This shirt is so comfy and goes with anything. I bought it at a discount outlet near our home (anyone in Maine familiar with Mardens?) for a great price. It know this one is going to get a lot of use. A simple solid colored tee like this one is a wardrobe staple.

The knit maxi skirt I wore is a very simple one with an elastic waist. I’ve had this skirt for years and I don’t know what I’m going to do once it wears out, because I wear it so often! There’s something elegant about a long skirt blowing in the breeze, isn’t there?

To dress up the outfit and add a bit of interest to this very simple combination, I added a pretty light green scarf. This scarf ups the elegance factor by a lot!

Very simple stud earrings and my favorite Chloe + Isabel sunglasses round out the look.


And of course, my bare feet make the outfit beach worthy! (I wore simple navy ballet flats with this outfit when I wasn’t walking on the sand.)
