My husband and I spent the day in Cape May, New Jersey — one of my favorite places.
It was a gorgeous day, sunny and much cooler than it has been the past few weeks. I wore a pair of thrifted Ann Taylor Loft capris. I bought this flowy peach top at Endless Summer at The Woodland Shops in Clermont, NJ, a boutique I have mentioned before here on the blog. Although it has longer sleeves, it is so light and cool.
Every summer, I seem to focus a lot on one color, and peach has been it for me this year!
We took a romantic carriage ride to see all of the restored Victorian houses.
The carriage rides are provided by The Cape May Carriage Company, which has been in business since 1983. Our horse’s name was Diesel.
We’ve done many tours over the years, and we never get tired of seeing the beautiful Victorian architecture. Although Cape May’s development as a popular seaside resort began in 1766, two devastating fires in 1856 and 1878 destroyed many of the buildings. That is why most of the current homes are Victorian structures built after the fires.
Many of the homes are lovingly restored Bed & Breakfasts.
Cape May is a National Historic Landmark District and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Michael and I are members of the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities, a non-profit organization which promotes the preservation of this historic town. My dream job would be to become a Cape May tour guide!
One last “style” note is my necklace, which I bought at Francesca’s.
