Coastal Connecticut with Joules USA

I had President’s Day off and the kids were home since there was no school, so we decided to take advantage of the warmer February temps and head to the shore. Mystic Country is a quick car ride from our home and it is always in season in my opinion. These warm snaps are a welcomed event lately and it has us all ready for spring once again.

We got a new lens for our camera and decided to try it out for the first time. I love these images and I took a ton of my boys, but I won’t be that mom and plaster all of them in this post. I’ll save that for our photo albums and grandparent sharing, wink-wink! We were bummed that Topher didn’t have the day off work to come out with us, so I think we owe him a shore excursion soon!

Also, I wanted to take advantage of the 50 something temps and try out some new spring gear and pieces I recently added to my closet. I’ll link to those items in this post for you too…













Location: Ford’s Lobster

(If you are curious when Ford’s will be open again mark your calendars for March 1st 😉

Rain Jacket: c/o Joules Coast mid in Antique Gold

Rain Boots: c/o Joules Printed Tall Rain Boots in Engineered Stripe

Anchor Earrings: c/o Nautical Notions Drop Anchor Pearl Studs

I love this new version of the Joules Coast Rain Jacket. It has a different cord detail and a new wooden toggle clasp at the top—which I adore. Always about the details! The rain boots are great too and I love the adjustable strap. You can wear them loose or tight, depending on your activity. The anchor earrings are super cute and new too, and I just discovered this maker: Nautical Notions. Always a fan of a nautical touch!

It was such a nice day off and we had fun just being by the water. A few lobster claws made their way into our Jeep, which is no surprise! It was a much needed break from our normal lately. I’m putting together another post for you soon with a guide for Noank, CT. I have a lot of photos and information to share with you on this treasured coastal village and I will try to get that to you later this week. We end up here a lot in summer, but it was so nice to visit in the off season.
