VISITING PORTLAND HEAD LIGHT IN FALL LAYERS WITH TALBOTS

Visiting Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth Maine wearing Talbots fall layers

And just like that – our vacation came and went. Adam and I spent the past several days road-tripping up the New England coast and exploring Maine. On our second day of the trip, we started off in Cape Elizabeth at Portland Head Light. Since weather was full out Fall up north (and windy by the ocean), I packed practically in light layers and cozy textures.

THE HAMPTONS: RUFFLE OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS AND FLORAL CROWN

The Hamptons: wearing Design History off the shoulder ruffle dress and floral crown

Happy August! After spending last weekend/week sick in bed – I was more than looking forward to this weekend. Aside from a gorgeous wedding Friday night, Adam and I were up bright and early Saturday morning to head to the Hamptons for the first time. Verdict? I finally get what all the fuss is about.

VISITING OCEAN CITY, NJ: BEACH WEEKEND STYLE

Beach Weekend Style: Scallop Black One Piece Bathing Suit, Straw Hat and Cargo Shirt

This past weekend Adam and I spent a few days visiting Ocean City, NJ (where my Uncle has the cutest little beach house and generously let us have the place to ourselves). There was a lot of front porch sitting and beach lounging peppered with bike rides, ice cream runs and outdoor showers. I packed just a handful of things – mainly a couple of good bathing suits (this scalloped one piece is hands down my new favorite), white denim shorts, a light shirt jacket, and a pretty new dress to mix and match as needed.

Aside from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale – I don’t do much shopping between now and Fall unless they are pieces that I can wear now when it’s sweltering and also later when the air turns crisp. This marigold midi dress is great against a tan and paired naturally with cognac accessories and cat-eye shades for a Sunday morning bike ride. But how good will this be with ankle boots and a chunky cable knit sweater? Or a suede moto jacket and heels? Not that I’m wishing summer away any time soon…

MIAMI: OFF THE SHOULDER TOP AND MIDI SKIRT

Off the shoulder top and midi skirt

I’ve said it before – but sometimes the most simple outfits turn out to be my favorite. The first day we arrived in Miami I quickly threw on this off the shoulder top, perforated midi skirt, heeled sandals and metallic clutch and we ran out the door to explore our neighborhood and hit up happy hour.

TRAVEL GUIDE TO MIAMI, FLORIDA

The Steele Maiden's Guide to Miami, Florida

Last week’s trip was Adam and I’s first time visiting Miami and while it was originally booked largely due to the warm forecast and cheap flights – I can’t say enough good things now that I’m back. The international flavors, art deco architecture, miles of beaches, endless nightlife and dynamic art culture all mixed together to create a daily feast for the senses. If you’re on the East Coast (or elsewhere) and just survived a winter – it’s the perfect escape. Here – a must visit/eat/see list if you are thinking of saying ‘Bienvenidos a Miami’ anytime soon:
