loved being in newport the last few weeks. such a magical place. newport just exudes all-american style with all the sail boats and yachts, stripes, shingled houses, white picket fences, potted geraniums and american flags. 

i couldn’t help but think about marina rust when i was there. i could just see her being everywhere i went. besides being a great beauty with east coast roots, marina defines classic and timeless all-american style. without a doubt she’s my newport muse.
