SUMMER WHITES FOR A LAKE GETAWAY

White cutout top and white denim shorts, lakeside weekend getaway

I grew up a few hours from the Poconos Mountains and had always gone in winter to ski, but had never visited during the Summer until meeting Adam. His family has a cabin on Lake Wallenpaupack there and we are lucky enough to spend plenty of Summer weekends there now. For those in the New York area, it’s just a 2+ hour drive (car or bus are the easiest ways to get there) and a blissful escape from the city.

WHAT TO PACK: BEACH WEEKEND GETAWAY

The Steele Maiden: What to pack for a weekend beach getaway

If you’ve dropped by already this week than you already know I spent the weekend soaking up the sun at the beach, but I wanted to give you the play by play on exactly what I had in my travel bag. We were there just shy of 48 hours but managed to fit in everything from bike riding to relaxing on the beach to a Saturday dinner date.  Which meant everything I packed needed to be super versatile. I wore this striped chambray top for the car ride and also out to breakfast Sunday morning and this cute cotton romper went from a beach cover-up to happy hour with the addition of heels and a swipe of lipstick. And most importantly – it is the beach after all! – I packed a cute high-waisted swimsuit (seen up close here) which I custom designed on the Surania site (you pick your own colors, prints, and cuts and the sizing is really personalized for a perfect fit).

p.s. If you love those striped slide-on flats from Restricted as much as I do – you can get 25% off sitewide with code STEELE25 in the month of June!

SUMMER STYLE WITH RESTRICTED SHOES

The Steele Maiden: pink bike on the OCNJ boardwalk wearing Old Navy white eyelet shirtdress, striped flats and panama hatThis weekend’s escape to Ocean City, NJ was hard to describe as anything other than perfect. Weather hovered at exactly 75 degrees with nearly cloudless skies and we balanced long lazy hours on the beach with pancake breakfast dates and bike rides down the boardwalk.

WHAT TO PACK: CITY WEEKEND GETAWAY

The Steele Maiden: What to Pack for a Long Weekend City GetawayThis past weekend, Adam and I took a quick trip up to Boston to explore another city, work on an exciting project (launching this Summer!) and visit with some friends. Since it was a short but sweet trip, I packed only the essentials seen above (in this chic woven weekender bag). But truth be told, even if I had spent 3 or 4 days I wouldn’t have packed much more. By sticking to classic silhouettes, a similar color palette and just a couple of statement accessories you can easily mix and match for anything from sight-seeing to dinner and drinks. Where’s everyone headed for Memorial Day weekend? Not that I’m counting the days until Friday or anything…
