Mantoloking : the shores I call my home.
I’ve been all over the Atlantic Ocean coastline up and down the east coast from Maine to Florida. No beach is home to me like shores of Mantoloking an hour and a half from my house.
Fun fact, when my great-grandfather bought our house on the ocean, you bought the beach itself with the house. As time went on and ordinances changed, one thing did not: Mantoloking is almost entirely made up of private beaches. This means when you look to the right or left of your spot on the sand, the only people there are your neighbors (and never is there a time all of your neighbors are out).
In my blog post from Rockefeller Center with all of the hydrangeas, I mentioned how my love for these flowers came from Bay Head and Mantoloking.
Now you can see why.
When you get to Bay Head, don’t miss out on going to Waterlily. It is one of my favorite shore shops! Situated on a side-street in Bay Head, it has the quaint feel of everything we love about beachy style.
Plus, the girls are always so nice in there!
We got caught up talking about old Taylor Swift songs and how much we love her music no matter how many times we hear it.
My dress and swim suit are from J. Crew. The swimsuit is now ON SALE! My sandals are Jack Rogers, my sunglasses are mentioned on my “Hot and Humid in Hoboken” post, and shhhhhh here’s a sneak peak of what’s coming to J. Shotmeyer 😉
