Most Loved Skirt This Season+ How To Style It

Hello Darling,

It is no secret that this knit midi skirt is my favorite thing in my wardrobe this year. I am not typically one to wear long skirts or even midi, due to my petite height. This skirt looks flattering on ALL body types. It’s thick and comes in a ton of colors. Y’all I would be LYING if I said I only had it in one color. I have the coral, rose, pink fireworks, grey, camel, black, & electric lime. Clearly I am obsessed with this hehe. I would say that it runs true to size, but you could definitely size down. I end up rolling mine once at the waist so that it fit a little a little more snug and shorter. There are many ways to style this beloved skirt, but my favorite is with graphic tees and sneakers. You will notice I paired this Skyline Midi skirt with tons of graphic tee options. Which is your favorite? The price point is $50.00 for this cute skirt and truly, I would own EVERY SINGLE COLOR if I could. This will be a great piece to transition into in the Fall when it is still warm enough outside. I’d love to hear which color and look is your favorite. Comment below! Have a great weekend Darling!

Hello Cute Shoes, Goodbye Blisters!

✌

Hello Cute Shoes, Goodbye Blisters 🏻

Okay, so let’s be real for a second. Who doesn’t love cute summer wedges? I don’t know about you, but recently I’ve noticed that the older I get, the worse my feet are. I used to strut around in the cutest heels in college and wear pumps in the city for meetings and such.  Yeah, not today sister. However, I found a solution to my issue y’all. This is a serious game changer and SAVED me this past weekend in Maine. We did so much walking around town and,of course, this girl doesn’t know how to dress comfortable. Wearing cute shoes with my long maxi dresses and floral rompers were a MUST! I was recently introduced to blistabloc and they literally saved my feet from blisters. I just love wearing these cute Steve Madden espadrilles, but they rub against my feet and I needed something to help the pain for our long romantic beachside walks. You know what they say, “do it for fashion!“ Y’all let’s be real, there is only so much we can take as women and there’s nothing worse than a bad shoe blister to ruin your trip.

   The great thing about blistabloc is that they go right on the shoe and not on your foot. Goodbye ugly bandaids forever! Can we talk about the fact that they go on your shoe and can last for months too? I spend so much money on bandaids that just fall off and this is a great alternative; especially for travel. I know a lot of y’all are traveling abroad and this would be perfect for you. It’s definitely wedding and shower season- which means all the uncomfortable heels. I may or may not insert these into all of my shoes. I definitely will be giving a set to Mr. Darling, so he will wear his cute boots and boat shoes more. Maybe he will complain less and put his same old Nike sneakers away ….hee hee. Shhh don’t tell him! Also, blistabloc is super affordable and, Darling, now you can get one for every pair!

COMPLETE KENNEBUNKPORT TRAVEL GUIDE

Hello Darling,

As promised, here is a complete guide to traveling to Kennebunkport, Maine. Last year was our first time visiting this unique and charming town. Home of the LOBSTER and salty ocean water taffy, it quickly became a home in our hearts. We come every single summer and it has become our yearly summer tradition. Every year that we visit, we find new things to see, places to stay and things to explore. Kennebunkport is a small, tourist-driven, darling and quaint town. We had a beautiful weekend and are so sad to be back in New York. We wish we could have stayed there even longer! We look forward to returning every year and continuing to make new memories; eventually making it a tradition with our children and family one day. We were fortunate to have stayed at two different hotels in Kennebunkport and I will be sharing all of the details below. There is SO much information to share and I will be answering all of your questions here. Whether you are traveling for a weekend get-away or a week long stay- there will always be something to do in this beautifully scenic town. Taylor and I spent four full days in Kennebunkport and found that it was the perfect amount of time, to see and do everything we wanted to. This is one of my most memorable trips and I look forward to visiting again next year.

Where To Stay?

THE YACHTSMAN HOTEL & MARINA CLUB

As soon as we stepped foot into our private and quaint room, we felt serene, relaxed and could feel the ocean breeze drifting in. The room is vibrant, fun and filled with all the vacation essentials. Upon arriving, we were greeted by Casey, who was beyond accommodating and made our stay exceed our expectations. The bright white walls and pineapple headboard lifted our spirits and certainly put us immediately into, “vacation-mode.” The room is fully equipped with tv, fridge, full sized bed, sliding door, which leads to a small backyard with Adirondack chairs to lounge in and watch the boats go by.

The headboard was probably my favorite part of the room.

This was the view from our backyard. You can see the dock and harbor/marina from your room!
This was right in our backyard!
How gorgeous is the decor?
Of course, we had to get matching KPT sweatshirts.
We took this right before Taylor’s birthday dinner at the Burleigh! How pretty is the view from the room?
Another beautiful sunset view from our room.
Major room decor goals right here!

The Yachtsman has some wonderful accommodations and gives off the perfect beach vacation charm. The pool is in a separate, peaceful area from the resort and literally floats in the harbor! It is SUCH a cool experience, you feel like you’re floating on a boat. They have comfy beanbag chairs to lounge on. One of my favorite things that the Yachtsman offers, are complimentary bikes to ride into town. Town is about a mile or so to walk. We found the location to be perfect! I loved that the Yachtsman was close to town, but still slightly secluded; so you have more of a peaceful and serene experience. With the backyard feature and small pool- this hotel is children and couple friendly. Every morning, Mr. Darling walked down to the offices/lobby to grab a cup of fresh coffee from their adorable coffee bar. We truly loved every moment of our stay and certainly will be back. They definitely have made this hotel family oriented and a wonderful place to make long-lasting memories. Another thing that I wanted to mention, is that KRC hotels offers complimentary kayaks for all guests at the marina, which is located next door to The Yachtsman!

This is located right on the patio/bar area. Such a cute spot to lounge and relax.
So relaxed by the pool!

How cute? We LOVED this section of The Yachtsman!
How cute are the bikes? Mr. Darling rode the bike into town and grabbed breakfast! I had to stay behind, otherwise I would have came back with a few cuts and bruises. hehe

We, overall, had an AMAZING stay at The Yachtsman. They were constantly going above and beyond to make our stay perfect and we thought they had so many wonderful accommodations. From pastry deliveries right to your door every morning, to an outdoor patio and your own small backyard; we were beyond pleased with our experience there. We definitely felt that breezy feel of freedom and have now found our new getaway spot.

The Boathouse Waterfront Hotel

The Boathouse is also owned by KRC hotels and we stayed here for our last night in Kennebunkport. One of the amazing features of the hotel is the fact that you can take steps out of the hotel and be right in the center of Dock Square in the town of Kennebunkport. I think this hotel has the absolute best VIEWS of Kennebunkport (especially from room 206). Our room had its very own private balcony overlooking the bridge and Kennebunk river. This waterfront hotel offers a prime in house seafood restaurant. It is one of our favorite spots to eat. If you are on the hunt for a great waterside hotel, then this is it. The views are incomparable to anything you will find in town.

View from our room!
Loved the modern vibe in the waterfront hotel restaurant!

This view from our balcony was incredible!

What to do

When it comes to things to do, Kennebunkport is filled with beaches, gift shops and sightseeing tours.

  • You must visit the Kennebunkport Beaches. The water is absolutely beautiful and the surrounding homes are so elegant and charming to see.  We visited Gooch’s Beach, which was a few miles (maybe 3 if that) from our hotel room.
  • Trolley Tour- This was a fun 45 minute, narrated tour all throughout Kennebunkport. The views they show you are just incredible. This was so relaxing, as well as interesting to get an entire historic view of the town. It is $18 per adult.
  • Horse & Carriage Ride- I’m not entirely sure how much this would have been, but it looked so lovely. 
  • Coastal Maine Scooter Rental: We did this last trip and it was our FAVORITE thing to do there. We rode along the shore and all through out town. It was a little too cold and windy this trip to rent. Next trip, we will for sure! If you have a few extra minutes in your day, you should ride the scooter to Saint Anne’s Cathedral church. The architecture was absolutely exquisite.  ( To rent a scooter- 207-204-0734)
It was absolutely gorgeous!
  • Dock Square Shopping: This is the best spot to shop for all things touristy. From sea salt water taffy to baseball hats and the BEST syrup; they have TONS of shopping in the square. One of our favorite stores is “Mountain Tops.” They have the best selection of sweatshirts and tees. This is where Mr. Darling and I bought our matching sweatshirts. Mr. Darling also LOVES the “Candy Man.” They may or may not have chocolate covered twinkies.
So corny I know, but we were so proud to walk around and match. Mr. Darling bought this for me, so we could be snuggly together on the cold, breezy night.
  • Boat Tours- It was a little too chilly this trip to go on the whale watching or lobster tour. I have heard wonderful things about both. I believe it is around $65 per person.  The town offered numerous types of tours. All of the boat tours can be purchased, at the Marina next to Maxim’s Desserts! We didn’t have the chance to do a boat tour, but everyone raved over the whale-watching tour. If you wanted to skip the tour, you could always head to the bridge and take a walk alongside the Marina. 

Where To Eat

There are numerous restaurants located in Kennebunkport, but here is a list of my favorites!

Dinner

The Boathouse

The Burleigh at the Kennebunkport Inn

Ocean at Cape Arundel Inn & Resort

The Dory at The Lodge on the Cove

Earth at Hidden Pond

The Tides Beach Club

We ate at The Burleigh for dinner to celebrate Mr. Darling’s birthday. As soon as we arrived, they greeted us with champagne to toast his special celebration. The food was astounding. We ordered a few appetizers and Taylor raved over the clams. As you know, Kennebunk is known for its seafood, especially the lobster. I ordered the sirloin and it was cooked to perfection. Tender with a crisp outer layer, it was served with some of the BEST French fries I’ve had. If you are looking for a romantic evening, then the Burleigh, would make a lovely evening for two. They offer outdoor, as well as indoor seating.

Dessert

Mr. Darling should write this section of the blog post because he ate enough dessert for the both of us. I will share a few of his favorite spots!

Maxim Desserts- This is a little food truck located in Dock Square. Hands down the BEST ice cream you will EVER have. The blueberry cheesecake is his fave. You can find this at 2 Harbor Lane!

Candy Man- They have amazing fudge and chocolate covered twinkies. Definitely a favorite of Mr. Darlings!

Satellite Donuts- Located at 4 Spring Street, in the heart of Kennebunkport Village. These are probably some of the best donuts you will ever consume. Taylor’s favorite are the strawberry sprinkled donuts.

Instagram-Worthy Spots

So many of you have been asking me for the best spots to take Instagram-worthy shots. Here are some of my FAVORITE spots!

The Yachtsman Hotel & Marina Pool – Best pool spot

Brewed Awakenings

This cafe is ADORABLE. The Tiffany blue decor and the pickup truck filled with flowers, makes the perfect Instagram spot. Our favorite spot was the “You’re my everything” photo wall! Mr. Darling and I loved this hidden gem in Wells, Maine! It is about an 8 minute drive from town.

Take a shot on the Kennebunk bridge or on the rooftop of the Boathouse hotel, for the perfect sunset shot!

Thank you all for following along on our Kennebunkport journey. I hope this travel guide was resourceful and helpful for your planning needs. Thank you to KRC hotels for sponsoring our incredible stay. Of course all opinions are my own! We look forward to our next stay! Of course, feel free to reach out, if you have any questions!
