BODEN SPRING JACKET AND LEATHER SADDLEBAG

The Steele Maiden: Boden Spring Jacket and Leather Saddlebag

There is a very explicit happiness that I attach to Spring jackets. They signify a distinct shift – when the weather is not quite fully warm yet, but allows for the first chance to shrug your shoulders out of those oppressive Winter coats. For that reason alone I really like them. Couple that with a bold print and swingy shape (anddddd water-resistant finish and removable hood) like this one from Boden – and I’m in love.

SPRING TRENDS: WIDE LEG CHINOS

The Steele Maiden: Spring trends - wide leg chinos and bell sleeves

You guys. I hate to start every post talking about the weather.. but at heart I’m an 80 year old woman strolling through New York (this works well because at heart Adam is an 80 year old man grumbling about New York) and ALL I can talk about is our current weather. It’s glorious and giving me hope that I can in fact survive until true Spring. No better time to break out a new Spring trend then, right? Wide leg chinos are having a major moment for the season ahead and even though I was nervous to try them – I can tell you that they absolutely deserve a place in your wardrobe.

NYFW STYLE: MOD PRINTED SILK SHIFT DRESS & BARDOT HAIR

The Steele Maiden: NYFW Mod style with Bardot hair and butterfly printed silk shift dress

Short and sweet. Accurately describing my dress and also my NYFW experience this go around. But we’ll start with the outfit shall we? You already know that my favorite style decade is the 60s so when I’m really going for it fashion-wise, I tend to draw from that time period. I went mod with this butterfly printed silk shift dress (a nod to my late grandmother who loved nothing more than a bright butterfly and a new outfit), sheer dotted tights, sleek booties, rose colored glasses and Bardot hair.

FLORAL EMBROIDERED SHIRT AND UTILITY JACKET

The Steele Maiden: Anthropologie Floral Embroidered Blouse, Utility Shirt and Boyfriend Jeans

To note: it is still not Spring. But on just the right day, when the wind dies down and you catch a sidewalk bathing in sunshine.. you can slip off your Winter coat and pretend for a second. It helps if you are wearing a pretty floral embroidered shirt that tricks you into believing May flowers are about to bloom.

MONOCHROME PINK FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

The Steele Maiden: Monochrome Pink for Valentine's Day

Admittedly, I’m a bit of a cynic when it comes to Valentine’s Day. It all just feels a bit forced. But dressing the part? I’m totally fine giving into that. I think my style has become considerably more streamlined in recent years but from time to time (and especially on a holiday that begs for over the top), I don’t mind adding an extra flounce or too.
