Vacation Staples

Things have been a little quiet around these parts this summer, and to be honest, I’ve been trying to enjoy the summer days, family time, vacations and trips I’ve been on.. and focus on a lot of behind the scenes things that are developing, changing, and growing for Style Cusp. ALL good things and I can’t wait to share more with you all in the coming months. That being said, thank you all for being the best and sticking around through all of the seasons this little corner of the web has gone through! I so appreciate you all 🙂 

I just got back from our annual family Maine vacation and it was an absolute blast. This year, we all ended up being in Maine together (more on that coming later this week) so it was an amazing time with family making so many incredible memories. We’re right on the coast up in downeast Maine, so the weather is super temperamental. I always joke around that I sometimes wear 3-4 outfits in one day because the day starts out cool, gets warm, ends breezy, and then is freezing.. I end up packing along lots of pieces that can me mix + matched along with things easily layerable. 

Cutoffs, tees, light sweaters and jackets, cardigans, and sweatshirts make up my Maine suitcase. I usually stick to just one main color palette so I can layer up, delayer, and relayer throughout the day without looking like a circus! This year, that palette was denim, white, navy, stripes, and hints of army green.. 100% exhibited in the outfit below. I wore some variation of this combo nearly all week.. swapping the jeans for cutoffs or tank for a long sleeve tee.

Right before heading up to Maine, I stocked up on a lot of great basics and classic pieces from Abercrombie. I’ve been shopping with them again for about a year now since their rebrand, and consider them to be one of my go to retailers now. Affordable price point, great basic pieces, comfortable denim (obsessed with the pair I’m wearing!), and overall classic style. Abercrombie is big on their neutrals – which for me is pretty much synonymous with my first name.. ha! Here’s a few of the pieces I picked up:

  • Twill Boyfriend Parka – love the longer length + it’s roomy enough to layer! I went with the size small + literally wore this the entire trip, almost every day! (pssst, currently 50% off so grab it now!)
  • Cream Cardigan – again, love the longer length on this. & it’s no secret I’m the cardigan queen. This cardigan is a little thicker but with the coziest knit blend + I love that it has the two side pockets. Will be a go to this upcoming fall season for sure! It comes in 5 other neutral colors too so I might have to scoop up another! 
  • High-Waisted Denim – Denim is honestly a sore point for me sometimes. I’m a bit curvier but have shorts legs thanks to my 5’3 frame, so when I find a brand that works + I love, I stick with it. For me, Abercrombie is one of those. I have about 5 pairs of their denim I’ve accumulated over the last year and constantly wear them on repeat. Abercrombie denim is designer denim without that dreaded designer price tag – I snagged this pair for just $39 on sale and they fit like an absolute GLOVE!
  • A few other pieces I picked up for Maine were this cute striped PJ set (so soft!) and this button up shirt dress.
