I am so excited about today’s post! First off, I’d like to thank Country Club Prep for making this exciting giveaway possible but before I go into any more details on that, let’s jump into a little behind the scenes and what a day at Groton Long Point looks like. I get countless questions from you all, about my favorite picturesque beach towns in Connecticut and I’d have to say Groton Long Point is at the top of my list. No matter what time of day or day of the week, each time I visit I’m guaranteed to look out into the ocean and see sailboats gliding through the sound. Literally nothing prettier than that.
Before heading down to Groton Long Point, I decided to dress the part and pair my Jack Roger sandals with this Kiel James Patrick, Nautical Chinoiserie Shirtdress. I was instantly drawn to this dress because of its crisp white and blue sailboat print. I pulled the look together effortlessly with a pop of color on my lips and air dried coastal hair. All in all, it was going to be a good day.
Shoot days can always be hectic but since we only had plans on shooting one outfit look this day, my Mom and I decided to make an outing out of it. We stopped at my favorite bakery on the way to Groton, to grab a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich…my go to road trip snack and an iced coffee. It took us about an hour to drive down to the shoreline and once we arrived we were greeted with even prettier weather.
From there, we parked the car and walked around the whole point until we found the perfect spot to take our picture. Originally I wasn’t planning on taking pictures in the water but the sailboats were just too idyllic to pass up. We spent about three hours walking the point, shooting this dress and enjoying a relaxing day in Groton Long Point. We even went as far as to bring you all BTS (behind the scenes) with us!

Okay, now from the moment I found out that Country Club Prep and I were greenlighted go for this giveaway I knew I wanted to head down to Groton to shoot the giveaway images and share why Jack Roger sandals are a staple in my New England wardrobe. In fact, I can remember vividly purchasing my first pair of Jack Rogers. I was interviewing with colleges down in North Carolina and on arrival realized I had forgotten to pack my one pair of kitten heels I owned for the interview. So an hour before my interview my Mom and I jetted over to the mall to discover the brand, Jack Rogers. I purchased my first pair of Hamptons Jack Rogers at the age of seventeen with cash that I saved up from my summer job, and still, have that pair of platinum sandals today. In fact, it’s actually the exact pair I’m holding in the pictures above.
Long story short, Jack Rogers played a big part in making me feel confident and classy for those interviews, and getting to giveaway a pair to you all now is a dream come true.
