A Natural Palette (See Jane Wear)

Eileen Fisher jacket, Rebecca Taylor dress (similar here, here and look for less gingham version here)
similar heels (look for less here), similar bag, sunglasses
Oh, neutrals, how I love thee.  If you build a closet of soft tones and neutrals, you can add virtually anything to it.  This Eileen Fisher jean jacket from their Eco Exclusives collection via Bloomingdales contributes to my third piece problem (I have no remorse) and seamlessly blends into my spring wardrobe.  I love this jacket because it's not stark white, but rather more of a subdued natural that brings an organic feel to my usual neutral palette.  Sometimes I want to get in touch with my Mother Earth side--and this undyed, natural jacket does the trick.

The Versatile Jean Jacket (See Jane Wear)

Moon River dress (shop more Moon River here), Gap jean jacket (this Madewell one is also perfect) ,  BCBG heels, 
Illesteva sunglasses (shop more Illesteva here), Cuyana bag
My husband was on my case the other day about how our guest room/Teddy's room is also my own personal coat check.  Look, he obviously doesn't read my blog because if he did, he'd understand how important jackets are in a climate such as ours.  He did give me a little credit when he said, "but I admit, you really do wear all those coats."  Thank you, thank you--I'm glad that he notices that I wear my clothes like a good blogger.

My Favorite Spring Sandals (See Jane Wear)

spring 2017 shoe trends
outfit 1: Madewell top (under $50 version here), AG jeans, Halogen mules (also love this criss-cross pair), Chloe bag, Sonix sunglasses
outfit 2: Madewell top, Current/Elliott jeans, Vince sandals (look for less here), similar bag, Sonix sunglasses
My favorite shoe for spring (...and summer)?  I have two that I can't decide between: the mule and the ankle-wrap sandal. Two springs ago, I became obsessed with the easy, mule sandal (it started with the Vince mule heel I saw at Nordstrom in spring 2015).  It was a welcome departure from my pointy stilettos and a nice alternative to the strappy sandal.  At the same time, I wanted ankle-strap/wrap anything--I loved how they looked on my legs.  Both styles, found at Nordstrom, are flattering and I have found them to be extremely comfortable.  I can't seem to resist either style when buying shoes this spring (as evidenced in these photos), but the good news is that both trends have lasting power and will be sticking around for awhile--and the best part is that they're available in a range of price points at Nordstrom.
