Next stop: Newport, RI… where the mansions are huge, and the seafood fine!
We spent a couple of nights at the historic Hotel Viking where we were pleasured and pampered to our heart’s content. Between daydreaming about life inside of The Breakers, savoring the Portuguese clam chowder at Anthony’s, strolling the Cliff Walk, and enjoying a beautiful seaside lunch at The Mooring, I’m not sure what I enjoyed most in Newport. But I do know one thing for certain: I will definitely be returning for the Newport Regatta this summer!
For me, dressing for road trips is all about comfort. And since there was quite a bit of a chill in the air the further north we traveled, I relied a lot upon my fall weather classics even though I was not-so-secretly pining for my spring favorites. In the end, I was too busy soaking up the many sights and flavors of this trip to worry about my outfits (well… at least not too much). One thing I was very about happy about was digging my cute little bow shoes out of hibernation. They are some of the cutest, comfiest shoes I own. I bought this pair a few years ago, so they might be hard to track down. No one does a cute nerd shoe like Bass (I think I’m up to 5 pairs now!) so you really can’t go wrong with any of their styles.
