Welcome to Newport Stylephile, lifestyle blog that celebrates the Newport, Rhode Island way of life. From the runway to local boutiques, designer interviews, national trends, deals and steals to where and what’s hot, you’ll find the scoop here.
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 Vogue, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, W, Coastal Living and countless other top magazines, but we’re 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!
