Field Trip 01 – A Day in Watch Hill, Rhode Island – INSPIRED FASHION


A few weeks ago, Jordan, Kristi and I went adventuring and photo taking  in Watch Hill, Rhode Island for our first field trip of the summer. We have been using the photos for inspiration ever since. Here are some beach, day and night outfits Kristi pulled together. The handwritten type was created by Jordan and photos were taken by me. A true PMD team collaboration.

Just rollover the images to see where the products are from or shop the list below each photo.

More inspiration brewing from our trip (photo packs, printables and product ideas) and we are planning our next outing soon…we are thinking farm!? any other ideas?

Stonington Vineyards Launch

Had a blast last night with the wedding industry folks at the amazing wedding venue, Stonington Vineyards. The day cleared up for us and we were able to enjoy the beautiful new renovations on their property and to celebrate weddings at the winery. The night ended with a beautiful pink sky, music, dancing and lots of wine of course!

A huge thank you to Rachel Edwards of Dreamscapes Design Group, Maggie Bascom and Katie Mamula from Slainte Events for planning and designing this event that was like a perfect summer wedding.
