Sunny Day on Bowen’s Wharf


Jacket: Ralph Lauren (old, similar), Sweater: Doen (old, similar, and another option),Skirt: Ulla Johnson, Boots: Sarah Flint c/o (old, similar) , Bag: Sezane

It feels a bit premature to categorize this post as Spring, but since we are nearly a week away I thought it fitting for this wishy-washy end of New England winter. On Friday, when I took these pictures, it was a beautiful day in Newport. The weather was in the mid fifties and perfect for a light coat, sweater, and skirt ensemble. Kiel and I had a couple of meetings in town and it was really nice to walk down Thames St. and around the wharf. We sat down for lunch at Diego’s (always a favorite for tacos) and poked around a few of the shops. I brought home the antique desk of my dreams and a new topiary. Spring was definitely in the air on this day — the rest of the weekend was rainy, windy, and frigid. We woke up to a light layer of snow this morning.

This time of year when I need a wardrobe refresh I like to keep it realistic as it’s not uncommon to have a snowstorm in April in Rhode Island. I slowly introduce new pieces to my spring wardrobe. Very often they are dresses or skirts like the one featured in this post that I can style now with my current winter wardrobe and later with sandals and summer blouses.

    I tried to stop by the store on Saturday to purchase one of the new shamrock necklaces, but the store was closed due to the parade- so sad! Luckily, Brittany was helpful on Sunday when I called to order the necklace… and I will pick it up when I come back to visit Newport again in a few weeks. It was terribly weather this past weekend!

    Hi I have two bunny sweaters from last year and I’m wearing them again this year they are my favorites!
    I’ve been browsing the jewelry section and I recently found out that a lot of costume jewelry can contain lead or other toxic metals unfortunately the standards in USA still allow certain levels in jewelry for adults which I want to avoid, particularly when I am around my grandchild. Do you have any lead free jewelry or bracelets?

    Your dress is so beautiful. You look amazing with the sweater and ring.

There's no feeling like leaf peeping in a big, cozy sweater on a brisk New England Fall day. Load up the family wagon, stop for some apple cider donuts, and have yourself an Autumn adventure to remember.
