Dressing for Fall

WARWICK, NEW YORK: BOYFRIEND JEANS AND ANKLE BOOTS

The Steele Maiden: Fall foliage wearing cable knit turtleneck, boyfriend jeans and ankle boots

On Sunday, Adam and I took advantage of a rare day without plans and took a drive out of the city. We ended up in the town of Warwick, New York after stopping at a nearby pumpkin patch/apple orchard – because apple cider donuts.. obviously. It feels like the trees have barely changed here in the city, so it was fun to see the all out explosion of color happening just an hour north of us. I picked up these boyfriend jeans (or ‘Mom jeans’  as Adam lovingly calls them..) earlier in the weekend and paired them with these slip-on ankle boots and cable knit turtleneck sweater that I got for our trip to Maine.

FALL TRENDS: OFF THE SHOULDER SWEATER

Fall Trends - Off the Shoulder Bell Sleeve Sweater

If you were following along this summer, than you know that I was wayyy on board with the off the shoulder trend. And honestly, felt a little sad about the thought of putting those tops and dresses away until next spring. Luckily for me, when fall trends started to surface I spotted the newest rendition – the off the shoulder sweater – and was relieved to find I could carry this style right into fall.

FALL ROMANCE WITH RALPH LAUREN FRAGRANCE

The Steele Maiden: Romantic Fall style with Anthropologie and Ralph Lauren Fragrance

Of all the places that Adam and I go to escape on the weekends, our neighboring hometowns in the PA countryside is still one of our favorites. It’s the place where we first met and when the air turns crisp, the leaves start to change and the cornfields are full.. there’s just alway something that feels special about coming back here. While I’m usually a jeans and t-shirt girl back home, I was inspired by the classic scent of Ralph Lauren Romance to get a little dressed up, spread out some cozy blankets and take a quiet moment for just the two of us after a busy week in the city.

OVERSIZED SWEATER AND GREY BOATER HAT

The Steele Maiden: Grey Boater Hat and Oversized sweater

Taking a brief break from all of that Fall Foliage (posts from our Maine road trip here, here and here) to show you an easy fall city look that I wore last week. I’ve always loved a monochromatic mix and this grey on grey look incorporates a few of my favorite accessories this season like these suede high boots and boater hat.

WISCASSET, MAINE: FALL OUTDOOR STYLE

The Steele Maiden: Fall Outdoor Style in Wiscasset Maine

On our last day in Maine, Adam and I made a plan to drive up the coast to Boothbay Harbor but along the way passed through a small town called Wiscasset and couldn’t help but pull over the car. From the most charming historic homes (each had a date marker by the front door and most were built in the late 1700s through early 1900s) to beautiful scenic seaside landscapes (those Fall colors though…) it was easily one of my favorite American towns I’ve ever visited. I wore easy and comfortable separates (a quilted primaloft jacket and striped scarf for the win) for an afternoon exploring outdoors.
