A Whale of a Time

I’m a whaley big fan of Vineyard Vines.

In addition to the bright colors, bold patterns, and preppy styles, I love the lifestyle the brand represents. The company uses an acronym for their motto: EDSFTG. In longhand, it stands for “Every Day Should Feel This Good.” I couldn’t agree more.

Luckily, the store I work at – Irresistibles in Andover – sells Vineyard Vines. Well, not so lucky for my wallet, I guess. While I was working one day I spotted these amazing shorts and knew I had to have them. Called the “Edgartown Short,” they feature a print of Martha’s Vineyard. It is covered in water, whales, boats, bikes, brightly dressed people, salt water taffy, ice cream, and all the other New England essentials. Most importantly – to me, at least – it has contrasting red lobsters throughout.

Since each pair of shorts is cut differently, I had to go to great lengths to find a pair that featured the right amount of lobsters in the right places. You may call it crazy, but I call it dedication.

I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never actually been to the Vineyard. Yup, I’ve lived in Massachusetts for most of my life and have never made the trek. I have already expressed my resentment with my parents. But now that I’m technically the adult and should be planning my own trips, I can’t afford the insane summertime hotel rates. I guess what I’m trying to say is if you have a house on the Vineyard, give me a call.

For now, I’ll just wear my Edgartown shorts and pretend.

Huge shout out to Katie McLean for having the patience to photograph me. And for dealing with the technical difficulties we encountered. Believe it or not though, I think she would agree that I wasn’t that much of a diva!

I hope you’re all enjoying lobster, ice cream, and beach time just like the little people on my shorts.

Always remember – every day should feel this good.
