Weekend In Newport

Spring has finally sprung, and when the sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and the blue sea is sparkling, there is no better time to be in New England. There are so many day and weekend trips to take within three hours from Boston, and we satisfying our New England wanderlust with a few trips this season. This past weekend we had the chance to spend time in Newport with great friends in an amazing seaside house. Here are just a few favorite photos from a weekend in Newport.

Nautical touches everywhere – I am obsessed with coastal/nautical style and could outfit myself and my home solely from stores in Newport.

41 North   Thames Street Newport

As I mentioned above, the shopping in Newport is really great, and Thames Street is a fun wander, with its lovely shops and old New England architecture. I love classic New England, and Newport is one of those places that embodies this. Our friends introduced us to a new-to-us oyster bar, which I will be sharing in another post. Our next coastal New England getaway is Mystic. I haven’t been since I was little and would love any recommendations!
