Just before Memorial I took a long weekend to visit my friend Annette on Martha’s Vineyard. If you haven’t been there, I highly recommend considering it for a short getaway. I shared everything we did in my Martha’s Vineyard travel guide, and today I’m sharing what I wore during my trip to the Northeast.
What I Wore in Martha’s Vineyard
Martha’s Vineyard is pretty casual, so I didn’t pack any heels and limited my shoes to a pair of goes-with-anything white sneakers and slide sandals. The weather stayed pretty mild (and rained) during my time in Martha’s Vineyard, so I ended up just wearing sneakers with everything. I’ve been a fan of Veja sneakers for a long time and have owned a handful off different styles total over the past couple of years.
With its charming New England homes and oceanfront views, I decided to lean into coastal grandmother vibes for this trip and embraced easy, comfy pieces.

White Jeans Outfit
Right before this trip, I picked up these white jeans at a shopping even my friend Fortune hosted in NYC. They are extremely pricey, but I have been on the hunt for comfortable, non-stretch white jeans for probably three years now. These are just slightly off-white, super easy to wear, and I figured it could be another three years before I found a pair of white jeans I loved.
If something fits you well, you feel great in it, and you can wear it year after year, it’s always grounds for a splurge in my opinion.
I topped off my jeans with this faded yellow graphic tee that says, “ON VACATION” and threw on a bandana.
This v-neck cardigan kept me warm during the chillier times on the island. It’s soft and cozy. I wanted a more oversized fit, so I went with a medium, and recommend sizing up if you want a similar look. (It looks like “the” Jenni Kayne sweater, but at a fraction of the price.)

Casual Jeans Outfit
Since we visited a real, working farm, I wanted to make sure I wore a practical outfit that I could easily wash if I got a little dirty.
I settled on these balloon-style jeans and cuffed them at the bottom to make them a little shorter. (I’m 5’4” for height reference.)
This gingham peplum top felt on theme for a farm visit. When in Rome, am I right?

Polka Dot Dress Outfit
I am all about things you can dress up or down, and this polka dot maxi dress checks the box.
Obviously, I wore it a bit more casual for Martha’s Vineyard, but this dress would totally be cute with slides or dressed up with some strappy sandals. The straps are convertible, so you can crisscross them or remove them completely to make a strapless dress.
Along for the ride: my go-to oversized denim jacket from Madewell. It’s a classic and a great piece to throw over everything.
Whenever I travel I like to pack in the same color palette so I can easily mix items in case the weather or plans change. For my Martha’s Vineyard trip, I opted for neutrals and more traditional colors like navy blue and yellow.
