Stripes in Kennebunkport

Stripe Cotton Top Kennebunkport The Northern Magnolia

Brian, Bennett and I spent Memorial Day Weekend exploring the southern coast of Maine. We immediately fell in love with this gorgeous state and couldn't believe this distinctive, dramatic coastline was a mere 60-something miles from our Boston home. I couldn't help but dream of one day having a cottage by the sea in either York, Ogunquit or Kennebunkport- the three Maine villages we explored.

We stayed at the York Beach Residence Club and we couldn't have had a better experience. We had a 2 room condo with a gas fireplace and kitchen, which I couldn't have appreciated more since I was able to keep fresh food and milk on-hand for Bennett. Our condo was right across from a roof-top terrace with a gorgeous view of the ocean. There was also an indoor saltwater pool so we were able to take Bennett swimming every morning. The condo was right in the middle of the village of York Beach so we were able to walk to some great breakfast spots, cute local boutiques and ice-cream shops!

The weather was overcast and in the 60's, but Brian and I didn't care; we didn't go to Maine to lounge on the beach but rather to explore the historic towns, eat the incredible local food and take in the striking scenery.

Since I knew the weather was going to be capricious I wanted to pack a top to go with a comfortable pair of jeans that had the comfort and warmth of a sweatshirt but still looked stylish. This blue and white striped top from LOFT immediately caught my eye. I thought the nautical vibe of this top was appropriate for exploring Maine's coast and the knot at its hem made it just perfect.

I'm so bummed that J.McLaughlin is still sold out of this round wicker bag, but I also love this wicker bag they have with a bamboo handle. It is so adorable, and a wicker or woven bag is a must-have this summer!

Everyone should visit coastal Maine in their lifetime. It is an unbelievably beautiful part of our country, and we can't wait to explore more towns along Maine's shore. I hope you all have an amazing day! You can shop my look from this post below!
