Houndstooth in the Village

Northport Village is one of my favorite places. Where the shops are boutiques that carry and support the local brands- Where everybody knows everybody- Where if you forgot to bring enough cash for the Sweet Shop, you'll get a smile and a wink, and just bring it with you next time- Where you take your food to go, to sit on the park benches and eat with a view of the harbor- Where families walking their pups stop to say hello and chat for a little, or sit on the grass and enjoy their surroundings. No one is in a rush, and everything, for the most part, is right there in that tiny little village for everyone to enjoy.

Affiliate Links: Some links on my blog are affiliate links, supported by either ShopStyle or Amazon. These links don't make items more expensive, they just give me a very tiny "thank you" gift for sending you friends to these stores. However, not all links are affiliate links because not all stores I love are supported by ShopStyle and I would never only share items from stores that are in order to make money. Leading me to my next disclaimer..
