What to Pack for a Trip to Nantucket

Part of the reason I love Nantucket so much is that it really has a dress code of its own. It’s one of the only places I’ve ever been where it’s completely acceptable–encouraged, even–to be ultra preppy all the time, and wear Lilly Pulitzer on a daily basis. It’s so fun!

This week, as I pack for my trip, I can’t help but start to think about what would be inside my dream suitcase. Here are some preptastic finds I’m lusting after these days. ;)
