First there is very exciting news from Boden – this week they are offering a Catch of the Day! Each day, this week, a new category of clothing will be on offer at 25% off! Today the deal is on women’s dresses, and boy’s and men’s shorts – grab them while you can! The drop waist dress that I love is included so it may end up in my shopping cart today:)
Other emails that appeared in my inbox this morning included one from Net-a-porter.com. It can be quite a dangerous thing being on email lists. Sometimes I just try not to look – this morning I looked. Fatal. Rag & Bone have some beautiful new grey nubuck Newbury boots that I am lusting after. I love how they have styled them on Net-a-porter.com with a dress.
I also adore these Rag & Bone brogues in white. Very cool looking for Spring.
At $495 though, for the Rag & Bone brogues, this Boden option maybe better value – plus with the 15% off using my banner ads they are just $142.80. Tempted, very tempted.
Today I’m switching gears with my look. After the 80s look from Friday I’m shifting today to a more refined, preppy look. It’s nice to change it up a bit occasionally:) The trousers are J.Crew café capris that I got for $30 in the sale, and the blouse is Target and absolutely fabulous for $20! The belt is also Target and the shoes are Nine West from Zappos.com – currently on sale at $56, reduced from $69.
So what do you think of the more refined look?
Ha – thank you Azade – glad you like it – I aim to please – sometimes:)
Absolutely love your blog and your “out of the box” style!!
Why thank you Preeti and thanks so much for reading my posts:)
Much prefer the look today!! More youthful looking..
Thanks Siobhan – funny you say that as I feel much more grown up in this outfit!
Love the look! And may I ask…since you are lucky enough to have Newbury’s and Pistols which do you prefer? Which are the higher heel and are one slightly higher above the ankle than the other. I just cannot make up my mind which I prefer! Thanks!
I actually prefer the Newburys – they are a bit higher heel but remarkably comfortable to walk in as they have a lovely cushioned footbed. They are probably both about the same height above the ankle but the Pistols fit much more snuggly around the ankle. I really like the cuff on the Newburys too:) The Newburys also come in a much wider array of colors/fabrics and are cheaper!!:)
That is a rocking look on you! I love it. I just bought a pair of charcoal grey capri pants and I was thinking they were a bit boring with my black shoes but you have totally inspired me to wear them with the leopard skin courts and I have a pair!! woo hoo!
love this look…gorgeous spring colors…
unfortunately our climate forces me to live in ugg boots for at least 3 months a year,can’t wait for spring!
I love the pink trousers. It’s a more sophisticated look but hey a different day, a different mood, a different look. It’s all fun. But yes – you do look more “grown up” – a more office look to me.
Just so you know, the drop waist dress has a separate full-slip lining that is separate from the dress. I don’t recall reading about it during the preview (and maybe it wasn’t mentioned). It would have definately been better — less cumbersome and more comfortable– had the dress been a “double-knit”. I find myself having to pull at it after sitting/walking a bit. It is a nice looking dress, but…..it could be better. That is a pretty blouse for $20. You gotta love a deal!!
I love this look, and adore the shoes. I have a pair of leopard courts I bought from Karen Millen which are gorgeous.
I really like those Boden brogues I was drooling over them in the look book!
The Rag and Bone newbury booties have been on my list for awhile. And of course, I love the J Crew cafe capris. They look really cute with the bow blouse.
