Dressing for Spring

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.

It was so much fun to create my ‘Complete Guide to Summer Travel‘ and even more fun to finally share it with you all! And if you did already take a look through it, than you saw a hint of these photos. Last week Adam and I crossed a major item off of our New York Bucket List by finally visiting the Top of the Rock. And here’s the way to do it…

OFF THE SHOULDER SHIRTDRESS

Off the Shoulder Shirtdress and Espadrilles

Bare shoulders and legs now through summer, please! You already know I love a good shirtdress and anything off the shoulder this season – so when I spotted this combo for just about $30 I was all in.

WHITE COTTON EYELET TOP AND SKIRT

White cotton eyelet top and midi skirt

While I’m all for a bold floral print or a peppy stripe – there’s something kind of beautifully simple about a monochrome look. Even more so if it’s white on white.
