Stripes in Newport

Banana Republic Striped One-Shoulder Top

Dare I say this may be my favorite outfit shoot, ever? Guess that’s what happens when you shoot on the most perfectly overcast days in one of the most beautiful parts of New England! I’m back from a fun weekend trip to Newport, RI–Ashlee and I + our boyfriends headed there for two nights. We got back in last night after a 2.5 hour delay (apparently the storms in DC were no joke) which, I will say, is made much more bearable while flying Southwest. Hopefully I’m not jinxing myself by saying that, but having a great crew and captain made delays at the gate and on the runway a lot easier thane expected.

A full recap is coming on Wednesday but in the meantime, we snapped these photos yesterday before brunch at the Castle Hill Inn. Can we talk about these views?! It was tough to come home :) I’ll share more about the property in that post, but essentially it’s on a hill–as you’d imagine–and there are a bunch of rocks at the base, directly on the water. Sunday brunch was the perfect time to finally break out this top–it’s pretty much the perfect summery statement piece that isn’t too over the top while still being unique. The good news is it’s currently on sale! I’m wearing a 4 and would say it fits true to size.

My trusty small Longchamp was the ideal bag for the weekend–when required, it fit both my cameras, a change of clothes, a couple TRUFFLE pouches, and more. If you’re curious about my thoughts on the smaller version, you can see them here (spoiler: I love both for different reasons).
