The Steele Maiden: 5 Minute Escape to Veneto, Italy

I’m off on a little adventure this weekend – and while not as colorful as this pretty little strip in Veneto, Italy – it is on the water and that’s enough for me. A few other things on my radar right now…

– Now that it’s skirt season I’m ready to try out a few new shapes – this jogger style one is cute without being too athletic looking and this flirty maxi is begging for a margarita date.  And speaking of margarita’s.. Cinco de Mayo is next week.  You can probably find me at my neighborhood spot, Mercadito

– Mother’s Day is only a week away, which means there’s just enough time left to pick up the perfect gift. See my full round-up here. I’m (not so) secretly wanting these and this for myself.

Talbots is having a Friends & Family sale – meaning these pants and this dress are 30% off for the weekend with code FRIENDS30.

– Want to see more of my weekend? I’ve been dipping my amateur toes into Snapchat (user: thesteelemaiden) and as always I’m on Instagram (p.s. If you sign up once at then every time you double tap one of my pictures with the @liketoknowit tag, you’ll get an email sent to you with the direct links to the items I’m wearing! How’s that for convenience?)
