Our Summer ’14 Top Picks for Milly & Grace

Like I said in my style report, Summer 14 is going look very fresh!  Pretty soft colors, lots of denim, white dresses, crochet, crop tops and rompers.  Check out some of my favorite looks that will hit Milly & Grace in June.

Joie #nailedit as usual.  Their summer collection was very island (yay for us!), feminine, light and flowy.  As always, they make their pieces very low maintenance, wearable and comfortable!  I admit that I don’t own a romper yet!  (Like I’ve said before, I’m a fashion prude!  Caroline calls me plain Jane.)   This might have to be my first one:

Joie This top is going to look great with cut off jean shorts for summer and then with dark denim and cowboy boots in the fall.  Joie1pickSoft Joie is actually the first line that we ever wrote for Milly & Grace!  Soft takes tried and true styles and bodies from Joie and uses more everyday fabrics – cottons vs. silks.  Can’t you just see this cute tank going to brunch at Black Eyed Susans this summer??softjoiepickI can’t get enough of Rebecca Taylor.  When I wear it, I just feel so put together.  Her collection for summer was the true Rebecca that I know and love: soft colors, feminine bodies and just the right amount of embellishments.  Here is line up of all of our picks for Summer 14! Rebecca Taylor pickMy favorite looks from RT are usually dresses but this time around it was her tops that caught my eye.  We are seeing A LOT of batik prints for summer.  How sweet is this pretty batik print tank?!  And I LOVE this crop sweatshirt with the metallic threading detail.  This is how I’m going to fill the crop trend this summer.rebecca taylor

We can always count on Splendid to make cute everyday pieces at a great bang for your buck price.  If  you are a bit nervous about trying out a new trend – like a pop of chartreuse – look to Splendid to fill that need.splendidpick

We are SO excited to be carrying Free People next season!  Boho Chic is where it is at with Free People and we’re absolutely smitten with this top!freepeopleDuring the last few hours of the last day of the show, we got really lucky and stumbled upon a booth waayy in the back corner called Miss June.  A husband and wife team from France were showing their line for the first time in the United States!  They make the most beautiful pieces that are perfect for summertime in Nantucket!  It was a perfect fit for us.  These are only 2 of many pieces that we bought from them.  This is a MUST SEE when you stop by Milly & Grace this summer! Miss JuneOk.  Hurry up Summer!!  I can’t wait to wear your cute clothes!

A Nantucket Snow Storm – #ACKHERCULES


On the second day of the storm, Nantucket woke up to a huge, white, fluffy layer of snow.  This meant we had to go sledding!  We all bundled up and headed out for another adventure!   Caroline had never been sledding before.  I know, isn’t that terrible?!  We definitely took her sledding when she was between the ages of 1 and 3, but she obviously doesn’t remember.  She was convinced she could “slip and slide” down our snow covered shell path… but she quickly realized that that doesn’t work!  We then found a huge pile of snow that the plow trucks left in our neighborhood that served as a pretty “epic” sledding hill for us!  AND then we got a call from Steve, inviting us on an adventure.  Steve is the King of Adventure… we knew we were in for some crazy fun!

We put together a little video for you all to see!  Scroll down and hit play!


The always fashionable Patty is the best pattern mixer!  She is ready to take on the snow!


We are breaking all the rules!
