Earlier this month Christian and I spent a day at the beach (and have the sunburn to prove it, whoops!) After a quick outfit change we decided to try a new place for dinner - Chophouse Grill in Westerly, Rhode Island. Our meal was so delicious and the waitstaff super attentive. We'll definitely be back! Even though we were stuffed, we also grabbed some ice cream at Brickley's! The weather was so beautiful and was a great temperature for walking around Westerly.

And here's a look at my beach outfit, a leopard print bathing suit and Farm Rio dress! This dress is too revealing for me to wear "normally" so I use it as a beach coverup instead! I wore it out once and the photos came out great, I just feel overly exposed in it, ha ha.

I'm a month late in posting this, but better late than never! I wore this on a very spontaneous day trip to Rhode Island for Valentine's Day. Long story short, Christian had a last minute video shoot for work in Newport so I tagged along and worked from the car while he was on location. Then we got to enjoy a nice Valentine's dinner in Newport. Only the second time in our six Valentine's Days together that we went out on the actual day. We like to avoid the crowds and higher prices, haha! The other time was our first Valentine's Day when I visited him in Missouri.

The morning started off very windy but by the afternoon it was nice and not super cold. Perfect for walking along Thames Street. We ended up having a late lunch/early dinner at Brick Alley Pub & Restaurant when Christian was done with work. Both our meals were very tasty and the inside of the restaurant was really fun! We almost ate at The Red Parrot, but since that's one of our usual spots we decided to mix it up.

This is my final look from our Rhode Island vacation over the 4th of July! Since we were at the beach I brought mostly blue pieces. This blue floral dress has always been one of my favorites. I remember I saw it at American Eagle and really wanted it so I saved up and then bought it when it went on sale. It's so funny to me that American Eagle used to be my splurge store. My how times have changed!

We were in Rhode Island for the 4th of July and instead of going to a crazy crowded beach we decided to visit a lighthouse by our beach house for a short while and then headed to The Umbrella Factory in Charleston, Rhode Island.  The Umbrella Factory is a pretty unique place. It's like a mall because they have a bunch of different shops, but they also have a small eatery, sell Del's lemonade (YUM!) and have EMUS and chickens. Yes, Emus! While we were there one tried to steal my brother's lemonade because he got too close.

Originally I was going to wear this crop top with my Everlane high waisted jeans but the weather forecast for the week we were in Rhode Island was HOT so I opted for my white jeans instead. I don't wear them often because I'm a little weary of getting white dirty but I think they really make the top pop. Thank you weather for making me change my mind! I also normally wear this top with something high waisted since it's cropped and blowing wind can be quite revealing, but I like it with the lower rise as well.

The purpose of our trip to Rhode Island was for a family reunion with my Mom's side of the family. Unfortunately for us, it was the hottest day of the year and we were outside all day. Wearing this tiny romper with a cutout in the back let me have a nice breeze even though it was at least 90 degrees. When I first got this romper I wasn't sure how often I was going to wear it, but I've worn it more than I originally thought. I only paid $27 for it on Gilt so I don't feel as bad for only wearing it a few times a year. It's a great statement piece to bring out for special occasions.  It's currently on Rent the Runway for $30.

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.)
