Though summer is winding down, there’s still time for a quick getaway with your girls. If you’re looking for long weekend inspiration, look no further than Ellie Thumann’s recent travels to Newport, R.I. The 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie spent a few days in the lush and picturesque Northeast and didn’t hesitate to share a taste of her excursion with her 1.6 million Instagram followers.

Her Thursday post featured a few snaps of Thumann and her friend and fellow YouTuber Hannah Meloche sporting bikinis and posing for the camera. The 21-year-old donned a black strapless bikini top with a gold starfish embellishment, which she paired with black v-cut bikini bottoms. The model kept her beach vacation look simple, accessorizing with a black ball cap and some gold jewelry, including a key necklace and gold hoops.

Thumann ended the carousel with a video of biking and skateboarding down the road with her friends—the perfect transportation for the beachfront—laughing as they went.

“it’s only right,” the influencer captioned the post. Thumann sported a natural look for her day at the beach, opting for light mascara and a glossy lip.

“It’s only right me falling off the bike,” Meloche joked in the comments section. “Muah Muah kiss kiss!!!” she continued.

“the 3 musketeers,” one follower said of Thumann and her two friends.

She followed up the post with a TikTok reel with highlights from her trip. If you’re looking for early August plans, take inspiration from Thumann’s Northeastern excursion and take a trip with your girls.
