{outfit} Lunch at The Red Parrot in Newport

Whenever my family and I go to Rhode Island we always take a few hours to go to Newport and check out all the stores and have a meal. The weather is usually hit or miss when we go because we don't want to waste a perfect beach day. This trip we had a good first hour and a half and after we finished lunch we were hit with some rain.  Because it was a cooler morning I was able to wear longer pants with a swingy camisole.

We took these photos outside our lunch spot, The Red Parrot. The whole family really loves this restaurant so it's usually where we stop while we're in Newport. We also had a group of 10 this year so most of the other restaurants on our walking route were too small to accommodate.  This time I decided to try something different than my usual fish and chips or blackened fish. I got the Red Chili Chicken and Coconut Shrimp and it was DELICIOUS. Other meals the family had were the Mandarin Coconut Chicken, Lobster "Rock n' Roll" (but with butter sauce,) Coconot Shrimp, French Dip, Blackened Mahi Sandwich and Lobster Nachos. Everything was really good with healthy sized portions.

We also like to stop at Armory Antique Marketplace to check out all the crazy old collectibles and jewelry. This year I behaved and didn't buy anything new, although I was tempted by rings as usual (I bought an adorable owl ring there a couple years ago.)

Floral Camisole: eight sixty, Pants: G.H. Bass c/o Clinton Crossing, Sandals: Sam Edelman c/o ThredUp,  Cardigan: American Eagle, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Natural Selection Mini Messenger Bag' (Saks Fifth Avenue), Sunglasses: Ray Ban 'Erika', Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon)

And here are some photos of our food at The Red Parrot.


  1. This is such a cute look, and a diversion to newport sounds like the perfect way to spend the day. I also can't believe how long your hair is already! Though I guess you got it cut longer ago than I recall.

  3. Your printed cami is so pretty, but it's the bag and the matching nail polish I'm loving most in this outfit - what a fun detail! :) Also another great photo of your beautiful engagement ring! :)

    The food looks good too :)

    Hope you are having a great week so far :)
