Now that it’s August, all we can think about is our next (last?) summer escape. Are you still dreaming of perfect beach towns, bikini weather and a bit of nature, too? If so, and if you’re in the general vicinity (or own a private jet) consider…
This small island off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts is as quaint as it gets. With beautiful port towns, woodsy, windy roads, and miles of beaches, Martha’s Vineyard is one of the best summer escapes on the Atlantic. If and when you go, don’t miss…
Farmers Markets: One of the best parts about leaving the city (any city) is eating like a country girl. Fresh fruits and vegetables, small batch jams and pickles, and homemade, still-warm-from-the-oven pastries are staples at the islands farm stands and markets.
Beaches: Martha’s Vineyard has fantastic beaches with rolling dunes and (surprising for the New England) clear water. We love South Beach on the southeastern shore for a day of fun/sun.
Edgartown: This is “downtown” Martha’s Vineyard. You’ll find bars and restaurants, great shopping and plenty to see. One of our favorite things to do is grab a drink at one of the many dockside bars and watch the yachts come and go from the beautiful harbor.
Bottom Line: Martha’s Vineyard is the perfect summertime escape on an idyllic little island far from the scratch and claw of urban living. Meet us there?
So I’ve just returned from a much-needed vacation to Puerto Rico, and I’m not kidding when I say I spent the entire time in palazzos.
Who would have thought this early 70’s trend would be making a raging comeback in the 21st Century? Lucky for us, because these just may be The Ultimate Vacation Pant.
Puerto Rico has maybe the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. I spent most afternoons soaking up the sun, frozen margarita in hand. But come sunset, it was on with the snake print palazzos and go. I wore them for walks along the shore, and kayaking in nearby Fajardo’s Bioluminescent Bay, which I highly recommend.
For cocktails and live music at the local bars it was a decision between my black sash-tie palazzos and my leopard print ones. Either, paired with a simple blouse, made transitioning from day to night a no-brainer. Another thing: palazzos are lightweight and breezy, perfect for dancing the night away to reggae beats.
On my last day exploring the island, I spent all afternoon shopping in Old San Juan. My outfit? Palazzos – the paisley ones. Those, plus a white tank top and sandals for fabulous tropical tourist style.
WHAT TO KNOW?
In the heart of the Czech Republic stands one of the world’s most well-preserved cities, Prague. Hidden in the mountains, this little gem is utterly unlike any other European hotspot and absolutely worth a schlep across the pond!

With so many Caché boutiques in so many fabulous locations, it’s hard to keep up with what our girl is doing from city to city. To stay on top of current trends, local events, and hot venues, we’ve decided to reach out to a few of our regional VPs and find out what it’s like to be a Caché girl, no matter where you are.
Our first stop is Houston, Texas, where we’ve asked Rachel Dandeneau, Caché regional VP and Texas native, to play the role of tourist in her hometown. Rachel obliges with the lowdown on some of her city’s hidden gems.
