Sailing kite

I love this sailing kite from Terrain. Can you imagine how fun it would be to see one of these on the beach?! It comes in blue too, but I am partial to yellow. I think it'd be a cute hostess gift if you were staying at a friend or family member's beach house. Anchors aweigh!



Seaside maxi inspiration

I love this Gypsy 05 maxi skirt that is part of Anthropologie's new July collection. The aptly titled "seaside" vibe and movement got me inspired to collect a few items in this color palette.

Newport Flower Show

Last month, I attended the opening cocktail party of the Newport Flower Show in Newport, RI. My company was a sponsor of the event, and it was so fun to attend that night to see the show and mingle with fellow Newport-ers.
The event was held at Rosecliff mansion.

Food and drinks were served. My favorites included a goat cheese, mushroom, & sundried tomato salad served as a "terrarium" and a cocktail with edible flower garnish. Greenlion Design created this lovely lady, all made of flowers!

It was a beautiful evening!


A sunset harbor cruise and a giveaway!

On Friday night, DC and I enjoyed a sunset harbor cruise, courtesy of Boston Harbor Cruises. It was a perfect night to learn about the harbor islands while sipping on a cocktail. The view of Boston didn't hurt either!
