OOTD: Sunshine and Flowers

I keep smiling thinking about warmer days ahead…

It’s easy to forget that Spring starts off quite chilly in New York City, so I ‘m very thankful for any of the warm days we get before May! I take advantage of them with the cutest dresses, like Boden’s Lottie Ruched Dress, which now is now on sale! As is my jacket, and an extra 25% off to boot!

I love this roundup of Boden sale items — now up to 50% off! Many of their newest arrivals are marked down too for a limited time — see them here!

This dress works so well due to two design details: firstly, it has a ruched waist with an elastic panel that can stretch or constrict as needed. That’s fun for showing off my waist and relieving after lunch! Secondly, it has a slit in the skirt that allows me to take full strides as I walk while tapering in to a flattering body-skim when I’m standing still. It’s so lovely!

I’ve been playing around with color combinations to break out of the black-white-grey winter rut I’d started to fall into. Green and pink make such a pretty statement, and the pop of silver on my flats does wonders too! What colors do you normally pair with pink?

    I love that dress on you! I just ordered it in the lighter color; hoping it will work for me, too. I am new to Boden and still figuring out the sizing.

    OT~ I finally got to try the Madewell Retreat Dress today and I purchased it in the grey/black stripe. I returned a couple of things to Anthro and walked across the street and spent it there instead. Its cotton!. I tried the XS and S and bought the XS. The length is pretty perfect for my 5'3 frame..its fitted up top and gradually flares…no tent issues..its thicker and not see through…oh and its 79.95. Perfect. 🙂

    Interesting! In my memory they have always been on the pricier side but to be fair I don't think I discovered the brand until 2008 or so.

    Thanks Roxy! I want to say I love how you post thumbnails of all the items you discuss! Big thumbs up!

    • May 4, 2017 / 11:06 am

      Awesome. I can't control the size of the thumbnails (retailers control that) but it's something I'm playing around with when I have time. 🙂
