Rhode Island: Misquamicut beaches, Watch Hill shopping!

I had a wonderful time this past weekend in Westerly, RI with my best friend- a trip to the beach was much needed! We spent the daytime relaxing at the Misquamicut beaches enjoying the salty sea air (one of my favorite smells!) and the cool waves.
I've mentioned before that my friends and I are complete opposites, but I think this photo of me and my best friend sums it up perfectly:


Right before beach fireworks- gorgeous sunset!

Total opposites until the end, but we love each other anyways.We got plenty of sun lying on the beach all day (despite my best efforts, I still managed to get sunburns) and enjoyed gorgeous painted skies at night.





Although hard to see, in the above picture I am wearing a striped boatneck shirt I found at a shop in Watch Hill, a BEAUTIFUL little community in Rhode Island with some great shops, gorgeous houses by the sea, and the best sunset anywhere.




My absolute favorite Watch Hill shop (where I bought the shirt) is an adorably preppy boutique called Christina's Ltd. Below are some images I found online of inside the shop :



And a photo I took myself:


Everything was so pretty! I knew I could find the Lilly online for better prices, but I did splurge a teeny bit on the boatneck striped shirt: I LOVE boatnecks (so flattering on narrow shoulders!), I love stripes, and I love 3/4 sleeves. It's a snug, flattering fit that can be dressed up or dressed down...and it looks great with my other Watch Hill purchase, a pair of coral starfish earrings:


Paired with the shirt:



I can't recall the name of the store that I bought these in- but I remember the store also sold Jack Rogers and Vineyard Vines clothing.

Speaking of Jack Rogers, College Prep is hosting a wonderful Jack Rogers giveaway!  Click on the picture to see the post:


I'll definitely be rocking my JRs next weekend in Southampton. Can't wait!
