Layering Guide: Spring

Layering Steadbrook Sunday Essentials

It is always easy to make fun of how unpredictable the autumn and spring seasons are in Denver. The weather is really all over the place. The Spring can be exceptionally taunting while coming out of the cold of winter. 80 degree days can lead you to think summer is here, then a 2 day snow storm will change that idea quickly. Regardless of location, this is a general guide for addressing the mild or transitional weather. The key is versatility. Changing weather does not have to mean changing clothes, it just means wearing layers that will work with a wide...

Layering Guide to the Erratic Winter

Layering Steadbrook Sunday Essentials

One of the best things about Denver is the weather. We only get 8 to 15 inches of precipitation annually and during the winter, the average temperature is 45 degrees. The mountains take up most of the clouds and snowfall, but every so often, one will sneak over or come from the east making it hard to plan for all the variance the weather can bring throughout the day. After experiencing the bright colors of fall, the winter weather brings more muted tones that can feel like a drag, but we say have fun with it! The cold weather mixed...

Summers in Denver are experienced by plenty of direct, intense sunshine.  The dry, semi-arid climate allows for escape from the heat in the shade, but it also makes the temperature change drastically when clouds roll in or the sun goes down.  This variance makes it possible to have some fun with layers. For the other guides, the colors were inspired by the landscape and the changing color scheme occurring naturally.  This one pays tribute to tradition and the ideals surrounding the holiday that occurs in the hottest month in Denver, the 4th of July.  From the bright summer sun, to...

Layering Guide: Short Winter Days

Layering Outdoor Sunday Essentials

Though it has not quite happened yet, soon all the leaves will have fallen off the trees and cleared off of our yards. For the majority of the winter Denver is not covered in snow, but rather the greyed out muted ground colors of cold weather along with the bold colors of the obnoxiously early yet remarkably beautiful mid afternoon sunsets. With daylight hours occupying less of our day we have to think about how we can dress more intentionally for colder temperatures while still holding tight to our approach of clothing as a curation of art pieces. This particular...
