Parisienne Jacket, on me, with jeans, a top, a cute hat, and flip-flops. I wore this on the day we were *supposed* to leave for the Bahamas. Note I said we were *supposed* to...yep, we missed our flight. And to make matters worse, it was rainy, chilly, and awful weather that day. SAD!!! (In the end it worked out because we extended our vacation by one day at the end, and that last day was simply BEAUTIFUL--pics to come, I promise).
So I wore this jacket, finally. Up till that point, the weather had been far too warm to wear this jacket. You got it, the jacket is very heavy, very woolen, but also of the most yummy coloring...in other words, perfection for a grey, yucky, terrible day.
You can buy the jacket here at Boden. Still available in all sizes, so yay!
I bought this in a size 10 (UK), as the size 12 would have been far too large. Bear this in mind, though, if you are a bit busty, definitely size up. Oddly, the only place where it is even a little tight is at my bust, which is very unusual for me.
The hat is from Target, by the way. The jeans are from Land's End and the shirt is from Kohl's. Only the hat is current.
Also, isn't CW so cute standing up and emulating momma? Love it...she is even really close to walking at this point!
Close up of the jacket and collar...plus the very pretty hat from Target. CW is pretty darn adorable, too!
And one more shot, I think CW wants my hat...anyone know if they make these in baby sizes? I would love a baby-sized cloche!
Here is the polyvore of the second outfit.
I recently wore this outfit. You can find the info on the individual pieces in the polyvore. I will tell you that only the cardigan is an accurate item, however the pieces in the polyvore are pretty darn close to what I actually wore.
The cardigan is SO soft and pretty. And the buttons are just the right amount of embellishment.
I bought this in a UK 12. I waffled between that and a 10. Probably should have gone with a 10, but the 12 is fine enough, plus I can wear a thicker shirt underneath, if need be.
You can buy it here, and I definitely think everyone should. Unlike the Parisienne which could be too bulky on some, this I believe, could work on all. :)
Here it is unbuttoned. My face was just looking stupid, so I went "snip, snip" to my head. :)
Please ask away. I know I will have the energy for your questions at some point soon. Just not today!!!
UPDATE: POLYVORE ADDITION (9 pm...must go to sleep soon...):
Okay, many of you mentioned this cloche, so I decided to (quickly) create a polyvore with the cloche and the jacket in it, so that you could have info on where to get the items. BTW, the cloche is sold out on-line, but you could probably find it a local Target. :) Hope this helps you all!
