Main street in town, the most perfect little town ever, with it's old cobblestone streets and brick sidewalks. So much history here (and awesome shopping of course).

Dinner & drinks at the Galley Beach restaurant, which is immediately on the beach (you can literally have a table that sits on the sand). The views of the sunsets are incredible. One of my favorite spots in Nantucket.

The houses in Nantucket, especially Cliff road, are absolutely insane. This was one of my favorites...

Speaking of Tommy Hilfiger's house... 

If you follow my Instagram, you've probably figured out by now that I spent the past week in Nantucket, one of my absolute favorite spots. There are really no words to describe how much I love this little island - the town, the restaurants, the matching houses... Everything about it is just perfection. We stayed at the Cliffside Hotel & Beach Club, which I would highly recommend. They have an incredible pool, the rooms are directly on the beach, and it's connected to the Galley Beach restaurant which is one of my favorite restaurants on the island. We also checked out Cru, which was right on the harbor and had wonderful food and atmosphere, but my top pick was for sure Lola 41. Lola 41 is famous for their burgers for sure, but everything on the menu is incredible (think lobster risotto, gnocchi, salads, and a whole sushi menu). They have a little bit of everything.

Of course we ended up doing so major shopping over the weekend, some of my favorite stores being Peter BeatonMurray's Toggery Shop (gotta stock up on Nantucket reds of course!), NRO and Blue Beetle. We also hiked Sanford Farms and swung by the necessary sandwich staples: Fresh & Something Natural.

Stay tuned for the Nantucket part 2 post!
