Cities like New York and Los Angeles are filled with stylish creatives, but it takes a certain perspective to leave the fast pace of the cities behind for considerably quieter Rhode Island. That’s exactly what Jess Ann Kirby and her boyfriend Craig did after five years of bouncing back and forth between those two cities. They moved to Newport and launched Jess’ blog that documents her classic sense of style, exciting adventures abroad, and everything else in between. And Craig? Well he’s the man behind the lens of every photo. This duo embraces the calm, cool Rhode Island vibes and are consistently delivering coastal visual inspiration that makes us wish we exploring the Northeast right there with them. They invited us over for an end-of-summer dinner party filled with happy hour-style snacks and a delicious champagne cocktail. Scroll down for a behind-the-scenes tour of the party — you might just decide to pick up and move up to the coast yourself.
