I wore my patterned sweater and squirrel dress last week. I am completely enamored with Boden and love both pieces.
I paired the Boden pattern sweater with a short sleeve white button up, red jeans I got from stitch fix, and some black boots. I liked the way the white collar shirt contrasted underneath. Boden is having a sale right now for 25% off everything, and I highly recommend this sweater. It’s so soft and no wool!
I was stopped by a stranger in Charming Charlies who told me she loved my dress and thought it was vintage. The Hartland Dress from Boden is made from a corduroy fabric that is so soft and I love the pattern.
I got this jacket in my October Golden Tote and I love the feel of it and all of the details. The faux leather is soft and it has a cute buckle at the neck. I also like that it has a hood. It’s currently available in the November $149 tote and also the boutique for $75.
Finally, I had to give part of a keynote speech last week and decided to dress a little more professionally for work. I got the skirt at Ann Taylor Loft, and was happy with the fit and comfort. It’s nice and stretchy and didn’t feel restraining like some pencil skirts do. I paired it with an older cardigan from banana republic and a black and white blouse.
This is a great weekend to do some online shopping. All of my favorite sites are having big sales. (Boden 20% off everything and Loft 40% off everything.)
Here are some of the things I’ve been wearing this month.
I love this swing dress from Golden Tote just as much as the white one with black stripes. For work I paired it with these nude sandals and a long necklace then wore a jacket on top when I was in the air conditioning.
I love this new skirt I got from Loft. The fit is flattering for my body type so I bought it in two colors. The blouse is sooo soft and my favorite mustard color. The boots are new and I bought them specifically to wear with fall skirts and dresses.
This is the same skirt but in camel color, paired with my new hotchpotch sweater from boden and a different pair of booties that I love. I had these boots in black last fall and wore them a lot, so this fall I bought the same ones in brown.
I got this blue top from Dorothy Perkins in London and saw the outfit idea on a mannequin there. I knew I had the leather jacket and boots so just pulled the look together when I got home. (I can’t find the top online, but they do have a website.)
I saw an outfit similar to this on the Stitch Fix blog (see below) and thought I’d try to reproduce it with a top I got from Stitch Fix and a coral sweater from Old Navy.
And finally, I wore the dress from my last Golden Tote when we were going out to dinner on vacation last weekend. It was one of the surprise items, and I ended up liking it better than the dress I had picked.
Here are some of the things I’ve been wearing in June.
I got this Maxi Skirt on sale at Kohls and paired it with my usual jean jacket and some comfortable sandals. The boho necklace is from Ann Taylor Loft.
The Blue Skirt and graphic tee are from Ann Taylor Loft, the necklace from Kohls, and the shoes are Nine West.
The knit circle skirt is from Ann Taylor Loft, and I have it in 4 colors. It’s incredibly comfortable and easy to pull on when the weather warms up as an alternative to shorts. I wear them both to work and on the weekend. Here I paired it with a sweater from Ann Taylor Loft and a scarf from London.
The striped blouse was from Stitch Fix, and the cardigan from Piperlime.
The Maxi dress is from Target, and the bag is Kate Spade. I paired it with my favorite jean jacket.
The top and necklace are from stitch fix. I paired it with a white linen blazer I got from Nordstrom last summer.
In an attempt to mask the poorly placed gathering on this dress I wore the belt a little lower, but you can still tell it gives me a weird shape. Once again, my jean jacket. (I realized from these pictures that I’ve been wearing it a ton.)
I find that this silhouette works really well for my shape. The A-line pulls away from my hips and gives me a nice straight shape. The skirt is from Boden and the cardigan is from Old Navy.
I got this quilted puffer vest from Banana Republic last weekend and the coordinating sweater on the same shopping trip. I had actually been looking for a puffer vest I saw in the H&M catalog, but the store I visited didn’t have it. When I saw this in Banana Republic I tried it on and knew it was a keeper. Everything in the store was 40% off and I had an additional $40 gift card so I got a great deal on it.
