Oh hi there! It’s been awhile. But since it finally feels like Winter may be done, I figured it was as good a time as any to pop on and share a few easy (and affordable) options to update your Spring wardrobe. I’m eyeing those tortoise hoops, side button denim dress (just $60) and white straw bag as a way to update my own closet this season. All pieces that feel very right now but also super versatile and like I’ll get a ton of wear out of them all Spring/Summer long.
And while it may still not be quite warm enough in New York for sleeveless dresses, it is warm enough for a chic striped blazer, straight leg jeans and neutral accessories. A simple outfit (as pictured above) that I wore nearly exactly this time 2 years ago and I still repeat often. Fingers crossed for 70 degree days around the corner.
While I can’t say that the weather has been hearing my cries for spring, my wardrobe has started to take note. And what better way to put a spring in your step than with pink suede heels?! This pair from Naturalizer gets major bonus points for the fact that they’re insanely comfortable (even on Soho cobblestone!) and just the right height that I can wear them all around town without having to worry about limping along.
For now, I’ve been wearing them with casual denim on the weekends, as seen with this eyelet and overall combo, but once the weather actually cooperates I can’t wait to wear them with a floral skirt or linen dress and bare legs. Ah bare legs. Do you even remember?! For now I’ll take bare ankles with cute ankle straps whenever I can.
I’ve been sharing more of my everyday outfits in real time over on Instagram Stories (do you watch these? I think they’re such a fun way to instantly connect with you all) and last week I took a quick snap of this exact outfit and was blown away by how many of you sent me direct messages saying you loved it! So I figured I’d take a few more photos and share them here.
ps. As always – I love to hear what you guys are loving or want to see more of! Reach out via email (jessicaATthesteelemaiden.com) in the comment section here or on Instagram.
By this point, it’s no secret that I love stripes. You’re probably sick of it. But the thing is, they just always work. Whether a comfortable striped mini dress for running errands on the weekend, a crisp striped midi shirt dress for a day at the office or a bold striped maxi wrap dress for an unexpected date night look – you really can’t go wrong.
I’ve worn these gingham pants no less than 5 times since I got them a couple of weeks ago. They’re a statement.. but at the same time go with basically everything. From office chic with a crisp white shirt and blazer to day-date ready with a chambray off the shoulder top and fun lace-up heels.
