Eye Spy Style

I consider myself fortunate to have found my perfect balance by living in Manhattan and recharging on Nantucket as often as possible.
My two worlds are like two scoops of Juice Bar ice cream – black raspberry and peppermint stick, please! – each delicious, yet contrasting in flavor.
But the Islands of Manhattan and Nantucket do have quite a few things in common- one of which is that they are both full of fascinating, fabulous people. Whether I am on the cobblestones of Main Street on Nantucket or the Meatpacking District of Manhattan, I find style inspiration from the people around me. Take a moment and really open your eyes the next time you are out and about. What you see may not be your cup of tea, but there is beauty to be found in the effort that people make to express themselves through their personal style – or in some cases the effortlessness!
With that in mind, Gene and I thought it would be fun to hit the streets in town to chronicle and celebrate Nantucket summer style.
WHERE: Nantucket Farmers & Artisans Market
WHEN: A Sunny Saturday in June
Pell James, Madaket summer resident,
looking effortlessly chic in an Isabel Marant Dress and a distressed white Goyard tote.
Classic, yet of the moment stripes. Quintessentially Nantucket Ivory bangle. A woven natural tote completes the look.
A full bohemian mini skirt and gold gladiator sandals are the base of this trendy look. Requisite black wayfarers and a casual braid are the perfect accessories.
Nautical style put together from a Long Island Marshalls. A jaunty white trench gives it a little attitude.
Continued after the break.
