Stealing Sarah Jessica Parker's Style + WIWT

Sarah Jessica Parker

Morning ladies as soon as I saw this image of Sarah Jessica Parker I just knew it would make the perfect style steal.  I mean who doesn't love the combo of stripes & denim not to mention various shades of blue?!

Naturally the pieces SJP is wearing aren't going to be found on the high street & let's be honest no matter how stunning the top is it's probably a little too low cut & fussy for everyday life so with this in mind here's how I'd interpret the look for us mere mortals who don't live quite such a glamorous life as SJP does.

Starting with the top.  Ok so this doesn't create quite so much of a statement but it's definitely more versatile & one that could be worn day or evening.  Plus I'm thinking if you swapped the tie belt for a leather wrap such as this & added a statement necklace such as this one, it would look stunning.  This blouse is also another fab alternative but for me I think it's a little to cropped & would end up sitting in my wardrobe, as I'd rather have something that comfortably passes the waistband of my jeans.

Talking of jeans & I'm liking the look of these.  Such a gorgeous shade of denim, I think these would prove great wardrobe staples come the warmer months & would look stunning teamed with a white lace top or even a simple 'V' neck tee.

So far so good & the previous items haven't been expensive purchases......that is until now!  Brace yourselves ladies I've just taken a peek at Sarah Jessica Parker's shoe collection (see it here) & come across the actual sparkly shoes in the picture.

Although personally my favourite from the collection would be these.

And I suppose if you were working on the lines of quality over quantity then an investment in a pair of these timeless & statement beauties would be ideal for all those occasions where you need a pair of heels.  Funnily enough I was having this conversation with my mum the other day & saying that for me I just can't be doing with wearing shoes/boots that aren't 100% comfortable & that if you think of the handful of times you need to wear a pair of heels it's almost worth clearing out your wardrobe of all your current ones & selling them on eBay & then investing in 1 good pair that will last a lifetime, never date & be a lot more comfortable than probably the 10 pairs you've got at the bottom of your wardrobe & so much more likely to be bought out for special occasions.  Anyone following my logic here, or am I just building up to justify a special purchase with the hubby?!! ;-)

Or alternatively if you don't want to break the bank &/or walk around in too high a heel what about these beauties?  Now these are seriously tempting me to clear out all my heels in favour of 'clicking the button' - love, love, love!

Back to today & I'm breaking out my new jacket, which is all about the frill detailing.  I've kept the rest of my outfit really neutral so the jacket does the talking & whilst today's look is quite smart I'm also really looking forward to styling the jacket with a simple breton & jeans.

So ladies what do you think?  Are you loving Sarah Jessica Parker's style in the above image & is it something you'd like to steal or recreate with similar pieces in your wardrobe?  And what are your thoughts on clearing out & selling all your old heels for one special & comfy pair that you can enjoy bringing out to play time & time again?  Plus I'd love to hear what you think of SJP's shoes designs do you likey?!
