OOTD 5.13.10: featuring Boden's Rosette Top in Multi Painted Stripe


Boden's Top, Boden's Pic

I'm really happy with this top... nice colors (the stripes make me think "sun washed Juicy Fruit"), comfortable fabric, pretty but not overwhelmingly foofy (not that there's anything wrong with that) rosette detail. The armholes are slightly small... usually in a top like this they drop a little lower... but I don't notice because the fabric is stretchy and it is not at all uncomfortable. The brown stripe closely matches J Crew's Desert Brown (my Jackie color of choice today), and the lavender J Crew's Misty Lavender.

Rosette Top against J Crew's Misty Lavender Jackie (last year's)


...and my earrings are a recent Anthropologie purchase... I couldn't find online but they come in different colors and are priced at $28.

I have a super busy Friday and weekend coming up so probably won't be posting for a few days. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

  2. I love the Bodent top! Is it pretty true to size?

    Also, I was wondering, what size are your gold Tory Burch espadrilles? I saw the similar pair in navy on the Nordstrom website. Did you have to size up/down with these or are they the same size as regular Revas?

    Thanks!

  3. Roxy - thanks! I think it looks like something you'd like!
    Mona - Thanks! I got a 6 in the Boden top. For something similar in J Crew or LOFT I'd probably get a 4. The espadrilles are 8.5, same as I buy in Revas and all my other TB. They feel a bit tighter than my Revas so 1/2 size up would have probably been okay - but I'm not sure if it is because of a different sole or because they are sort of a thicker, crackled metallic. So far I've been happy with everything in my regular true size with TB.

  4. Beautiful top--so many choices/ways to wear it, but like you, I love it with the Desert Brown Jackie, from last year. I am glad to see the Desert Brown out again, it's my favorite color jackie!! Love the earrings, too........Have a great weekend!! Did you receive your latest jcrew order? I recently got my ruffle tissue tank in the Paris Pink color and really like it, i was wondering how you liked the items that you ordered......
