{ PACKING ESSENTIALS } FALL GETAWAY TO PORTLAND, ME



Right at this very moment, Megan and I are cruising north on our way up to Maine for a quick little weekend getaway. Longtime readers of the blog will recall that I've been to Portland a couple of times during the summer and absolutely love it there. From the scenic islands of Casco Bay to the many, many lobster rolls—it's kind of a magical place.

Since the fall foliage has been a little late to arrive down here in NYC, I'm anticipating that it's going to be absolutely gorgeous once we start heading up the coast. For leaf peeping, eating lobster rolls with a fall chill in the air and strolling around lighthouses, I'm packing a pretty simple formula of cashmere sweaters, a flannel shirt, easy jeans and boots that can walk and go out to dinner, plus my ever-faithful and oh-so-on-brand Barbour jacket. (And obviously a jaunty / seasonal hat!)

My hottest hot tip for #Fall2017? Head over to Uniqlo and stock up on their men's cashmere. Yes, it's $20 more than the women's styles. No, I don't think that's fair. However, upon comparison it is softer and thicker (and longer in the torso) than the women's styles. I am completely obsessed with this camel cashmere crewneck I got the other day, and wouldn't be surprised if it was all I wore all weekend.

Stay tuned on my Instagram (and @StyleGF too) for all the eating and adventures.
