OOTD: Newport Tourist

I have always been jealous of those fashion bloggers who seem to find the perfect background for their photos each time!  Most of the time I just take my photos in the back room of my house because it is the best room for natural light and I am slightly embarrassed to go outside to take my photos.  On the other hand, the one thing those fashion bloggers whose photos always turn out so well seems to be taking the pictures outside.  And who really cares what your neighbors think anyways?

This time I lucked out because we were on vacation this past week, which makes it totally normal to stand in awkward positions and take pictures of yourself!  You have to show you were at that tourist destination after all!  Plus, being in Rhode Island gave me some gorgeous scenery as my backdrops!

This outfit photo was taken at the Breakers mansion!  In this case the natural lighting wasn't the best, as you can barely see the design on my shirt or my necklace!


To me the star of this outfit is my new shirt.  I am just so in love with this shirt!

I wore jeans because the forecast called for low 70s and overcast that day.  I regretted it pretty quickly, but in the afternoon we went for a boat tour around the harbor so I was glad I ended up wearing them after all!

What I wore: 
Shirt: Limited // Jeans: LOFT // Necklace: Stella & Dot

Happy Friday!

It's my birthday!  We went to Newport this weekend to celebrate and we are still out of town so I will recap that later!  If you want quicker updates you can follow me on instagram!

I wish I had some clever "32" advice for you.  You know, like 32 things I learned in 32 years.  Or why 32 is better than 31 or something like that!  But who really wants to read all that when you can just party with me by entering by birthday giveaway!?!
