Sometimes I forget just how spectacular Newport is, particularly in the summer. I can’t believe almost a year and a half has gone by since I started this blog and I’ve never taken pictures at any of the mansions! I think I’ve always avoided it a little bit because of my irrational fear of tour buses filled with people. The camera had almost no battery left and the sun was going down so we literally ran around on the back steps of Ochre Court taking photos – the camera eventually died about halfway through – but we both vowed to go back and explore more of that incredible property. Ochre Court was built in 1892 and is the second largest mansion in Newport after the Breakers. It was a summer house for the Goelet family designed by architect Richard Morris Hunt. It is also where the original Great Gatsby was filmed in the 1970s. The earrings I’m wearing by Baublebar for Nordstrom (see the necklace I wore here) are actually what inspired me to head to the châteauesque mansion. They have such a luxurious look to them don’t they? I might not be able to afford a mansion on the cliff walk, but at under $40 these earrings have me feeling pretty fancy! Who needs all those rooms anyway? That’s a lot of swiffers.
P.S. Speaking of swiffers I’m hosting a Target gift card giveaway with some fabulous other bloggers so make sure you enter in the rafflecopter below.
