Family Day in Newport
March 13, 2018
Last week we visited Newport to check in on our Kiel James Patrick store (see my post on the opening here). For the next couple of weeks it will be closed for renovations and we had a few final details to approve before work could get started. It was very strange to see it completely cleared out and the floors sanded. Last summer we were in a rush to open the store at the start of the season and didn’t get to complete everything exactly as we envisioned. We are so excited to update it for this Spring to align with our new collections.
During our visit we stopped by the Newport Museum store, where the boat rocker can be purchased in case you were wondering. I received a lot of questions about it on Instagram. I also couldn’t resist stopping by the Cookie Jar which sells some of the best cookies. I buy at least a half dozen every time we stop by our store.
For this visit I dressed Harry in a Fair Isle Octopus sweater that I think is the cutest sweater ever. Baby clothes have become my favorite thing to buy. Harry is growing so fast and always needs something new. He’s 4 months but already fits in 6 month old baby clothes. He was 26.5 inches on our last visit to the doctor. Most of his original baby clothes no longer fit him. I’m buying everything a little bigger so he can wear it longer. I also found socks that finally stay on his feet! We purchased a few pairs of the Robeez socks at a local children’s store and Harry is finally unable to kick them off.
