Speaking of v-necks and dresses ....

I'm lurking a lot, but haven't been focused much on clothes until recently -- but I'm looking ahead to spring. Today's mail brought me two superb, petite-sized dresses from Boden, both of which I can dress up or down with accessories (like the scarves attached as finds) and shoes and transition from work to play easily for me. Both feature two of my favorite clothing shapes -- a sheath cut and variations on v-necks. With a topper, the dark olive dress in chino material is substantial enough to wear in our early spring-like weather.

I've definitely learned that I have my favorite silhouettes: sheath dresses (sleeveless or 3/4 sleeve), pencil skirts and boot cut pants/jeans with body skimming, un-tucked top (v-neck or scoop) that are my FFBOs that I always feel great in.

Note that both dresses come in a variety of colors and Boden has a 20% off sale right now!
