Last weekend, Kate and I took a trip out to Newport, Rhode Island to get a little sun and sea. Spring's been a little late in coming, so it felt really great to sip drinks by the ocean and catch some rays. Mmm. Bloody Marias.
It was also Kate's first go as official photographer, and I think she did a great job! A beautiful background never hurt anyone, right?
Since the weather decided to be nice, it was the perfect opportunity to wear my nylon dress for the first time. The peachy, sheer color made me feel terrific, even if I was slightly nervous about snagging it on a pier. Though the original belt's missing, the slip did come along with it, and thankfully it was thick enough to provide just a little warmth against the sea breezes.
Now, I grew up in Texas, where beaches are warm and sandy. The New England coast is gorgeous, but I'm always surprised by the rocky terrain and the cooler temperature.
|DO NOT COME IN, THE WATER IS NOT FINE.|
So I'll take the rocks if it means beautiful blue water--particularly if the rocks are such a stellar black!
