Rhode Island

1:01 AM


Sometimes I feel I am born in the wrong century. I belong to the 18th [or even the early 19th] century, for sure. Live in he 'age of enlightenment', witness the Industrial Revolution, actually converse with people the way characters from Jane Austen's novels do. That would be lovely! But it's not about to happen, now is it? ... and that makes me sad!

On our last day in Boston, we took a road trip to Rhode Island which is an adjacent state to Massachusetts [and an hour drive from Boston]. We drove around Newport, Kingston and Providence. This part of U.S. reminded me of my 'fantasy-18th-century-life', which either I have already lived in my last birth or am still supposed to live through my dreams!

  2. The outfit is fab Tanvi, specially like the necklace.
    Personally I would like to be born as a duchess or a princess and just spend my days shopping and attending balls and soirée's along with being a patron of various artists and writers:)

  6. Ooo, I want to go here. It's such a lovely looking place. The mansion definitely looks like something out of an Austen book.

    I think I was born in the wrong era as well: I belong in the 1960's!

  8. Remember the line: "I am a 21st century girl stuck in an 18th century house". :-p

    Though, the part of the 18th century that would remain is everybody writing notes in calligraphy, na? Notes circulating with wax seals. How romantic!

    Nice pictures-very FRESH. Pretty flowers.

  9. I totally feel the same way!! I feel like I should live in some Jane Austen novel or be friends with Anne of Green Gables! Everything seemed way more enchanting and romantic then:)

    I adore your blue on denim look! You looked so gorgeous!!

  10. It's funny that you say that Tanvi, you seem such an incredible modern girl to me. But then you could certainly also have been a maker and shaker in the Age of Enlightenment!

  11. Sounds like a fun road trip! I wish I could be born in an earlier century as well, although I don't think I would be living in Jane Austen's part of the world... I think it would have been fun to be a Mughal princess ;)

  12. I love this outfit! I love most of your outfits, and your seemingly endless collection of heels. However, I LOVE this one. It is probably my favorite to date. A little preppy, a little chic, a little rock. It's a great combination.

  13. Sometimes I feel exactly the same way. But be glad you're in this century and can rock those SWEET aviators!

  16. You chose the best time to visit Rhode Island..though fall would have been nice too!

    Great clicks, and you're no amateur nature photographer, the rabbit/hampster is adorable:

    Ps: Is that an evil eye pendant I spot on you?

  17. Oh I just love Newport! Glad you got to visit and she how beautiful it is. And it's so quaint too.

    Thanks!

  19. I just read a quote about d.i.y. Brooklyners and it was "they want to party like it's 1899." LOL. Perhaps you too!

    Rhode Island seems quite small yet alluring. Never been there, but would love to check it out. You look like you're having quite the time. Are you checking out schools?

    Thanks for you sweet comment on my blog by the way. It's so nice to get to know so many people and have a glimpse into their lives this way.

    Wishing you a happy Friday! xo. -Bella Q
