Welcome to Newport Stylephile, lifestyle blog that celebrates the Newport way of life.
Newport is more than just one of the most storied cities in the world; it’s a state of mind. It’s crisp white pants paired with a French boat neck top boasting navy nautical stripes. It’s sipping a Dark n’ Stormy on a hot summer day overlooking the sea. It’s embracing the salt water spray cooling you during an afternoon sail spent perched on the bow and asking, ‘Is there anywhere else in the world I’d rather be?’ (The answer, of course, is no.)
There’s a reason why Newport’s inspired style has been featured in publications and on programs around the world (because that literally used to be my job as the PR person for the destination!), but Newport is more than just canvas totes, anchor embellishments and boat shoes, and that’s the dish I’m here to share. Enjoy the blog, which has been featured in Conde Nast Traveler on Rhode Island Monthly’s RI Daily and more, and post your comments to let me know what treasures you uncover in the City-by-the-Sea!
The Newport Stylephile is written by me, Andrea E. McHugh. I’m a freelance writer, communications pro and content creator specializing in lifestyle topics including travel, food + wine, style, beauty, homes, weddings and wellness. I’m also a regular style contributor on The Rhode Show on WPRI, the Southern New England CBS station, because I love to share my finds!
My work has appeared in Family Circle, the Hartford Courant, Classic Boat Magazine, Baltimore Magazine, Cape Cod Home, Daily Candy, Design Sponge, Northern Virginia Sun Gazette newspapers, Ocean Avenue, New England Gala Weddings, Providence Monthly, ArtisansList.com and more. I’ve previously served as an editor for Newport Life and Newport Weddings magazines, and for more websites than I can count. In various roles, I’ve appeared on Good Morning America, in CondeNastTraveler.com, NBC 10 and as a panelist and moderator at a variety of meeting and conferences.
