I Miss Newport... + Packing List

I'M SEEING THE ROLLING STONES TONIGHT! I am so insanely excited!! My dad and I are seeing the Stone tonight in Chicago because he got me tickets for Christmas... ahhh, I can't wait to share more! Anyways-- onto today's post:

Every summer I find myself succumbing to a seasonal longing for my favorite place in the world: Newport, Rhode Island. If you've been a longtime reader, you're probably no stranger to my Newport obsession! I have visited Newport almost every summer of my life, and my dad even lived there when I was in high school! I am half convinced I'll get married at the Chanler on the Cliff Walk, where I took my senior photos (that I'll never not be obsessed with, thus had to include in this post)... ugh, it's just the best place.

It's been a few years now since I've been back in Newport and it's starting to drive me crazy!! Since our family got our Hamptons house a few years ago we have been spending more time in New York and less time in Rhode Island, which I can't complain about, but it does make me miss Newport so much. I have a few thoughts about where I hope to end up after college next year and I have to say that Boston has been slowly creeping up on Chicago on my list of top cities as I think about where I want to be long term. I would love to live by the ocean, be closer to some of my family, and at least for a little while live in one of my favorite cities in America.

Unfortunately this summer I am missing our family trip to Newport due to my internship, so I made a little round up of my pieces that remind me of Newport, aka what I'd be packing if I were to join my Dad and brother in the city by the sea!

What's your favorite city? Can you relate to missing a certain spot in the summer?


  1. Newport is so dreamy. I went a few years ago during Water Fire in Providence. I loved watching the waves crash against the mansions.

    1. Soo dreamy! My dad loves the Water Fire show, but I've never been. Definitely on my list!


  2. I visited Newport two years ago. I miss it.
