Up here, in our corner of the northeast, spring is still deciding whether or not to settle in. It’s as though the world around us has dipped a toe into the waters of spring and decided, “nah,” and put it’s parka back on for a bit longer. As one who has a terrible time ripping myself our from under my down comforter… I cannot pass judgement. But I digress.
Despite feeling like slow spring adopters this year, we have already found ourselves driving around town with the windows rolled down. Be bold, right? All you need is forty degrees (well, maybe forty-two)! But it’s never too early to start planning. Be prepared, as the inner girl scout reminds us. So, we’re looking ahead to a day when our puffy jackets will be replaced with something more waterproof for those famous April Showers and street style is once again inclusive of the underneath layers! The two looks we’ve pulled together here are the kind of outfits that embrace comfort, but also make you feel like you are lookin’ fine and wouldn’t mind being seen out and about. Those are the best of times. We won’t talk about our fashion worst of times….
We spotted more than a couple instant favorites from the Swedish brand Stutterheim, but fell especially hard their rubberized cotton rain jacket for the season ahead. We loved it so much, we want two. And just like giving a mouse a cookie, if you give a girl a rain jacket… obviously she is going to need the rest of the outfit to go with it and a little bling to top it all off! The gorgeous rings are made by one of the loveliest and talented jewelers there ever was, Nell Ballard of Belle by Nell. Her handmade creations are so special and made with so much love and care! If that doesn’t make you feel like a million bucks walking around, even if it is raining on your head, then we don’t know what will!
Cheers to spring! Blair + Hayley
