The next few days ahead look like idyllic summer temperatures, just in time for the Ocean State Tall Ships Festival here in Newport (for details, click here). The just-wrapped America’s Cup World Series proved a lot of things, including Newport is a beloved locale for sailors– for conditions, environment and enthusiasm (ETNZ Skipper Dean Barker laughed saying Newport was one of few places where unsolicited sailing advice might come with your morning coffee); and that casual style, even in the blazing sun, can be poised and polished. Day in and day out of the ACWS, I took in bold colors and nautical stripes as far as the eye can see…
I spotted this coral printed scarf top by Fornash at Cabbage Rose in Newport that is perfect for a hot summer day (this weekend!) paired with crisp white shorts, linen pants or white jeans. With a comfortable while elegant drape, signature Fornash toggle gold chain neck, and exposed back, its sweet with a little bit of sass. Top costs $58, available in pink with white coral or blue with red coral.
Cabbage Rose is located at 493 Thames Street in Newport, next to O’Brien’s Pub. (401) 846-7006
