Our Trip To Maine Part II & Another Fall Capsule Outfit

Happy Friday! Today I'm excited to share the second set of pics from our trip to Maine - we didn't get a chance to shoot the third outfit I wore so I'll put together a little collage for you soon. To suit the slightly cooler weather, I pulled out my favorite L.L. Bean fisherman sweater and was comfortable all day.

I've mentioned this sweater before but I think it bares repeating that I could not live without it. In fact, if I could I would wear it day in and day out without ever growing tired of it. Made from super soft cotton, this fisherman is the perfect blend of classic and casual and keeps me warm in the winter and cool in the spring. 

For the rest of my outfit I layered a plaid shirt and navy blazer so that I could add or remove a piece as the temperature fluctuated throughout the day. On bottom I wore my new favorite jeans from Madewell and added a crossbody, hat and chelsea boots. 

Capsule Pieces: Ralph Lauren plaid shirt, L.L. Bean Fisherman Sweater, Madewell jeans

Outerwear: Brooks Brothers navy blazer

Accessories: Green Fedora

Purse: Louis Vuitton crossbody

Shoes: Cole Haan chelsea boots

Until next time,


Our Trip To Maine Part 1 & A Fall Capsule Wardrobe Outfit

Happy Friday! Today I'm excited to share one of my fall capsule wardrobe outfits from our recent trip to Maine. Even though it's no surprise that I love Maine (Jason is a Mainer and we were married there last year!), I was still giddy beyond belief that we would be visiting in the fall - even if it was only for three days.  

When we first booked this trip, we were anticipating that it would be COLD. Instead, we lucked out with perfect, almost warm weather that was still crisp enough for layers -a.k.a perfect blazer weather. 

Needless to say, I took no time wearing one of my favorite blazers the first full day that we were there. To compliment the neutral herringbone of this vintage Ralph Lauren jacket, I kept my base layers in complimentary shades of blue with a simple tee and jeans. 

For accessories I kept things simple and classic with a fall themed silk scarf, belt and clutch. For footwear I wore my incredibly comfortable chelsea boots that you can see in my packing post here

All-in-all, I couldn't have been happier with this look and will definitely be wearing it again once it gets cooler here in Charleston. Not only was it super comfortable - after all it was essentially just a t-shirt and jeans! - but it was also polished enough to keep me feeling appropriate and ready for everything from a simple breakfast to cozy dinner out. 


Capsule Pieces: J. Crew navy long sleeve tee, Dark Wash Skinny Jeans from LOFT

Outerwear: Ralph Lauren Herringbone blazer

Accessories: Massimo Dutti belt, vintage silk scarf

Purse: Louis Vuitton clutch

Shoes: Cole Haan chelsea boots

Chic & Comfy Travel Outfit

On Wednesday Jason and I are taking a quick trip to Maine for some fall fun. In preparation, today I'm sharing one of my go-to travel looks that keep me comfy but chic.

The base of this look is one that fits just about any destination I'm heading to and can be topped with a blazer for some added warmth and polish. For this trip I will be doing just that and will wear one of the three blazers I'm bringing - stay tuned for my complete packing guide and list later this week.

For footwear, I always like to wear booties because they go with everything and are super comfortable. Plus, I can easily wear socks with them to protect my feet from the airport floor when going through security. Also, I love to bring my travel Longchamp Pliage to store my personal items. To keep to the one carry-on and a personal item rule, I always leave enough room in my carry-on to store one of my purses. More on that to come in a post later this week.  

Below, I've linked the items you see here in case you're interested and I would love to know what you're go-to travel outfit is. Let me know in the comments below and I can't wait to share pics of Maine soon. 

Until next time,
