Summer is coming to an end in a few weeks so I'm trying to soak up all the Summer I can before it does! That is, when the temperature decides to cooperate so I can be outside for more than 5 minutes without melting!

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.)

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

We didn't get to go to Disney for free this trip, BUT we took advantage of an awesome promotion they had. Annual passholders were able to get up to 6 friends tickets for $80 instead of $170. SCORE! When my friends and I go to Disney we don't play around. It was 12 hours of constant moving from ride to ride getting everything checked off. We ended up only eating lunch and basically forgot to get dinner, oops! Don't worry, I grabbed a Mickey pretzel on the go before I fainted, ha ha.

I was finally able to wear my super cute Mickey bag from Coach at Disney! He was so excited to be in his homeland. (I know, I'm super weird! Deal with it)

I only managed to take 2 sets out outfit photos while on vacation a couple weeks ago. I ended up spending a lot of time working in our hotel and the rest sweating like a maniac in the theme parks, I only lasted a few hours each outing - except for Disney day - ha ha. This romper always joins me on my travels. It's just so easy to throw on for a day of running around in the heat. It will be a sad day when it gets worn out.  Thanks to my three lovely friends Rosie, Amy and Stephanie for help with these photos!

Can you believe it's already August! Insane how fast the Summer is flying by.  As a secondary post to last week where I mentioned I hardly ever wear white, I decided to break out my white Mother denim jeans. I bought these during my partnership with Marshalls back in 2014 where they asked me to wear something I normally wouldn't feel confident enough to wear. I've tried to wear them at least once a year since then. This time I wore them with some brighter colored pieces.

I bought this on super sale last December when I got a Christmas gift for a friend. It was only $30 (regular $375) and the moment I saw it I dreamed of wearing it on a seaside vacation; Greece or Italy, perhaps?! Lucky for me, I was already in the early stages of planning this trip. I got it in a small, but an extra small would have fit better since it runs large.

I wore it our first evening on the coast to go out to dinner. We stayed in an airbnb just outside the center of Positano and our host arranged for the owner of the restaurant we went to to pick us up and bring us home. Such service, haha! We arrived on Friday night and left super early on Monday morning to head to Rome.

On our second day in Florence we took a trip to Pisa in the morning to climb the leaning tower. It was a super quick trip, we basically got off the train, walked to the tower (with a quick stop to take pictures of a pretty church I had read about), climbed the tower, took the usual holding up pictures and then walked back to the train. Then we continued our climbing day and went up the bell tower of the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore. Needless to say our legs were DEAD by the end of the day. Walking up and down about 800 steps (both Pisa and the tower were about 400) is no picnic!
