Postcards From Newport


Dress: Kate Spade via Rent The Runway Sandals: Sam Edelman Wedges: Jack Rogers (past season, similar) Bag: Loft Earrings: Amelia Rose Bracelets: J.Crew, J.Crew, Ann Taylor Sunglasses: Chanel

Last weekend MJD and I took a day trip down to Newport to celebrate our two year anniversary. Leading up to it, the weather was looking really spotty and I was nervous we weren’t going to be able to go, so when we woke up to sunny (but windy skies) we hopped in the car and went. Since Newport is less than an hour and a half away, it makes for a perfect day trip from Boston.

The main thing we wanted to do while in Newport was lunch and drinks at Castle Hill Inn. As you can see from these photos, Castle Hill has a stunning view of the water and lots of boats from their gorgeous Adirondack chair-covered lawn. In addition to the view (which is perfect for a glass of rose if I do say so myself), you can grab brunch, lunch or dinner at Castle Hill’s lawn. MJD and I did exactly that- in addition to some oysters, we both enjoyed some awesome seafood inspired sandwiches. MJD ordered the Surf and Turf Burger which was a burger with lobster on top (yum!) and I had the amazing lobster roll. I loved just relaxing with a glass of rose and taking in the view and all the boats going by with my guy. It really is the perfect place to spend a summer afternoon!

I picked this dress as part of my Rent The Runway Unlimited subscription specifically for our anniversary day date. It’s so perfect for Newport and it worked with both flat shoes for a stroll along the Cliff Walk and with wedges to dress up a bit for lunch.

xoxo, Jenna
