Celebrity Style Steal - Sarah Jessica Parker & My Outfit Of The Day

For this month's celebrity style steal I knew I just had to pick this outfit on Sarah Jessica Parker as soon as I saw it.  I probably don't even need to explain why I love it......yup that's right my Bet head is well & truly on but seriously how cool does this look?!!!  I'm also loving the splashes of colour in the scarf & bag, although not totally in love with the white shoes....can't see me rocking that trend this summer, although never say never!!!

So here is the Queen of Style herself Ms SJP!




And here's the pieces I'd use to steal her style.  Starting with this gorgeous silver grey batwing top from Mint Velvet, which would be just one of those useful pieces to have in your wardrobe that you'd probably wonder how you ever managed without.






Totally love the colour & style of SJP's bit of Bet, although sadly I couldn't find anything the same online, no doubt if I won the lottery & hit the designer shops this wouldn't be the case but in the meantime how about this short trench from Banana Republic?






For the jeans you won't go wrong with these Mint Velvet beauties.  I'm totally loving wearing mine (in fact I've got them on again today!) & to get SJP's look then stick with your normal size for a more fitted version & just have a single turn up deeper than the picture below.






I couldn't quite find the same kind of shoe & seeing as I would personally prefer a cream shoe to a white one I've decided to interpret SJP's style & go with these gorgeous pointed ankle strapped ones from John Lewis - I totally LOVE these - elegant, plain & stylish & are just going to go with everything.






And swapping the purple accessories with pink, I've chosen this simple cross body bag from Gemini-Woman.






Finishing with this stunning scarf from Marks & Spencer, I absolutely love the edging & it would be a great scarf for all seasons too.






So what do you think?  A successful style steal?  

Finally here's my outfit for today for a quiet day in.  We're planning on spending hubby's last day of the holidays chilling out as a family watching some films & having some tasty nibbles, so have decided on a casual outfit incorporating two of my current favourite colours & wearing my comfy but stylish Mint Velvet boyfriend jeans.

New Outfit Post - Oops I've Done It Again!!!

I know, I know I don't need any more jackets in my life but seriously when you take a peak at my new baby you're going to see why I went weak at the knees!  A gorgeous jacket that will go with a whole heap of clothes in my wardrobe & having found my quilted jacket from Zara last year to be so useful I just knew I needed to click the button with this one plus the colours are just perfect for wear all year round & being quilted that bit warmer when layered under a jumper for winter too (isn't it amazing how we can justify those 'must have' purchases ;-) ).

So without further ado meet my new 'can't do without'!!!!

So day one of the extended Easter break for me & seeing as hubby has the next couple of days off as well & it's the second week of the school Easter holidays here, we're heading off early to take our son to see our ever 'happy' orthodontist (let's hope the Easter bunny visited!!!) before a bit of shopping (I'm 'planning' on mainly returning not purchasing!!!!), a trip to the cinema & possibly a spot of lunch but that's dependent on how on edge our son's teeth are!

How about you, what are you up to today?  Hope the sun is still shining wherever you are, it seems that for us someone appears to have stolen it :-(

Anyway I'd love to hear your thoughts on my new 'baby'......she's a stunner right?!!!  Have a great Tuesday, always a great start if you've got work when the working week begins on a Tuesday & see you tomorrow.
