Now What? A Peek into Slip77: The Off-Season Edition.

YOU GUYS WE DID IT. ??????

Another notch on our belt. Another feather in our collective cap. Another string to our bow.

Another too short Summer behind us and we’re already well into planning for the next one. (btw did you miss us? It’s only been about 2 months since our last post)

The end of the season always collides with the end of the year and forces reflection (in between celebrations) alongside a healthy dose of thoughtfulness, planning and gratitude. This year we celebrated our FIFTH season of Slip77. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE???? That’s 5 years of friendships, mistakes, successes (both intentional and accidental), lots and lots of clothes, dressing people up, dressing people down, #SPOTTED photos, 5 years of Nancy’s Snack Bar takeout for 75 consecutive days, trunk shows, local artist events, collaborations, Christmas in Edgartown parades, contests, Tivoli Days, making new friends and catching up with old…you get the idea.

Hard to believe we are well into the throes of planning for Summer 2017  (which started back in August, as a matter of fact). Interested to see what Slip77 un-cut and off-season looks like?

Here’s a peek.

off-season on martha's vineyard
…we travel (shout out to Cape Air for getting us to and fro!)
SurfExpo orlando
…we go to trade shows…and do this ??
Katin clothing
…we pick out men’s clothes.
…we touch lots and lots of said clothes for our very strict “softness test.”
…we take the ferry..and occasionally just stare at the ferry shamelessly self-promoting. whatever.
Pacific Northwest what to pack
…we travel more…and wear as much Slip77 gear as possible. (see “shameless self promotion” above)
…sometimes we even check out the other coast for inspiration.
…and explore, dream, discover. totally kidding. but we do explore a lot of random places like this sea glass beach for example.
…we drink our favorite beer (what’s up Lagunitas I’m looking at you).
slip77 beanie
…we buy new stuff for our winter peeps!
…sometimes when the weather cooperates, we even hit up Falmouth for nachos. (Anejo is our spirit animal)
…we. keep. buying.
…and buying.
…and when we can squeeze it in, we bowl ?
…and when we aren’t buying or bowling, we keep going to new places. the world isn’t going to explore itself you know.
…more travel = more flying ?? Jetblue!
…oh and you know what else we do A LOT of? modeling for our own instagram..woohoo.
…and once in a rare while, we spot some winter tourists on island…they’re usually pretty easy to identify.
…we also finally have time to hang out and do some events with our FAV local artists! (hey Trust! ❤️)
…and when our friends can’t craft – we go it alone.
…oh…and selfies. hi.
…the buying literally never ends.
…we also get #SPOTTED in the Christmas in Edgartown parade every December.
…on or off island, we chase the sunrise…anywhere we can find it.
…we have impromptu photo shoots…sometimes they’re stupid. (see example above)
…we never stop chasing the sun…and always find reasons to love MV in winter.
…we take the ferry off island for shows…and take it back. and then take it off again. and so on.
…we take selfies on long car rides to and from shows.
