Stencil Me In

I have been drinking the Crewlade lately and making purchases on items that I had vowed to pass on. This morning I am going to pick up the watercolor pastiche pencil skirt they have on hold for me (on sale in stores) that I swore I didn't need since I had the sunshine peonies skirt already. But, the trip is the perfect excuse to check out the new arrivals

For my shopping OOTD (really the first part of the day but OOTFPOTD seemed too long) I dusted off my Boden Textured Cotton Shift dress after seeing Dinagideon in hers. The colorway I purchased is really bright so I decided to mute it down a little with khaki.
Jacket-Banana Republic
Dress-Boden
Double Wrap Studded belt-Loft
Shoes-Bandolino

And here is the Polyvore:
Shifty

Tonight is my first official work shift at the Loft, and I have a fun outfit in mind that I will share tomorrow....wish me luck!!

Oh my goodness...I love this on you, and I LOVE it with the jacket. :) Definitely going to have to try this style out myself!

I thought I would only want the sunshine peonies skirt, but then the lilac watercolor floral skirt did me in when it went on sale! LOL.

I love the Watercolor Pastiche. I have the Watercolor Garden skirt too. Unfortunately, the Sunshine Peonies skirt just wasn't me.

I really like the way you've styled the Boden dress for work. And another pair of shoes I need!! What is the style name? Your recommendation on the sandals was so good, I need to pick up these cute peep toes too.

quick question, the vera wang sandals on your april 21st post, do you know what the name of the sandals are? I think they rock!

Debye said...

You'll never believe it but I ended up getting a whole bunch of stuff EXCEPT the skirt! I'll explain why later

Thanks for the outfit compliments too! I really loved the way this came together and hoped I wasn't the only one....

DesertFlower-the shoes in this pic are Bandolino's Shelley Shoe in Ematite Gold Metalli. I got them a few weeks ago at Macy's on clearance!

CrewBanana- The shoes from that post (which are so comfy) are from Banana Republic and they are called the Vera woven high heel sandal;o)

Debye said...

p.s. thanks for noticing my tan Sarah! I have been putting a lot of hard work in to it with my chair and my Nook everyday ;o)

Can't wait to see your outfit for the Loft! I'm loving how you put the jacket over this dress. While the pattern and colors are so pretty, the jacket tones it down just enough. Perfect!

Michelle Q said...

Awesome dress, Debye! I've been eyeing that same dress in the black/linen colorway...wish I could pull off that color - you look great in it!
