Boden Beetroot Dress

Monday, November 24, 2014

I did a major closet clean out when I moved out of my last apartment, which meant that it was time for a lot of old favorites to find a new home. I justified it to myself that if I didn't wear it at least twice in the last year that it was time for me to let it go. This also meant that there was a lot of empty space in my closet now that needed to be filled. I was on the hunt for pieces that reflect my current style and could also be dressed up and down for any occasion.
 One of my favorite new pieces is this Ponte Skater Dress from Boden Clothing. I have been absolutely loving Boden Clothing recently. Their clothing is so classic with just a touch of girly-ness, which is so totally me. With a long swishy skirt, 3/4 sleeves and a bit of added stretch, this dress is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. I can feel comfortable cooking my pumpkin pie (with an apron over it of course) and quickly transition to throw on a pair of pumps and a statement necklace and be T-day party perfect. The color was also a huge draw for me. I usually veer far away from shades of purple, but I just couldn't resist the beetroot shade for Fall. 
I have also been totally obsessed with this necklace as of late. It's been showing up in so many of my posts and I just can't seem to get enough. Bauble Bar, you may be my new addiction. They have such gorgeous pieces that can be dressed up or down for any event. I definitely have my eye on a bunch of pieces for  all my upcoming holiday parties! The necklace I'm actually wearing is on sale right now so definitely jump on it before it's gone!

  1. Love this dress! I'm a mom of 3, so I appreciate fun dresses that also cover me up and let me crouch down, jump up and move around as I need without showing too much skin- this looks like it would fit the bill :)

  2. You look simply adorable in that dress! I am glad it made it to your closet again. You are very diligent in selecting to give away only those you haven't worn twice that year. It takes me FOREVER to give something up! :)

  11. Love that you are wearing flats with this dress. I am such a flats girl and posts with dresses and flats just look more 'realistic' for me since that's how I would pair them!

  12. That is GORGEOUS. I could really use a dressy dress that's not summery. I get so cold so easily.
