OOTD: Twofer for Easter.
UPDATE 10:21 pm: I am fully capable of reading directions, hand on heart, but I missed a BIG part of my update at 8:10 pm by NOT reading the directions of the e-mail from my affiliate properly. Blah.
Here are the FULL DETAILS:
Starting tomorrow (that would be 04/11/12, I assume at midnight in less than two hours from now), for 24-hours only receive an extra 10% off mid-season sale items at Bodenusa.com!
ALSO IF THE LINK DOES NOT DIRECTLY GIVE YOUR SHOPPING BAG AN ADDITIONAL 10% OFF, USE THIS CODE ON YOUR SHOPPING BAG PAGE: XTEN
So, from midnight to midnight, enjoy your (extra sale) shopping. ;)
UPDATE 8:10 pm:
Just received word that Boden is adding an additional 10% to all mid-season sale items, which means some of the items are quite a good deal. I don't have the ability to link to last wednesday's all sale info review roundup, but I mentioned the very best deals over there.
I did receive a direct link from the affiliate, which is below (remember, if it doesn't directly take an additional 10% off, use code XTEN in the code box on the shopping bag page).
24-Hour sale! Shop Bodenusa.com and receive an extra 10% off mid-season sale items. Hurry, while supplies last!
Also, there is a double post below because my smart phone is kind of stupid. LOL.
Hey, all! I am not quite 100% back in the saddle, so to speak, but I am feeling a bit closer to normal, and to celebrate that, AND the fact that Angus is actually asleep for a few hours this afternoon, I figured now is better than later in publishing my first postpartum outfits...
I have some outfits of the day from before this last Sunday (Easter), but I am saving all of those for a Mommy Style Monday on dressing your early (and very sore) postpartum body. It literally took me until Easter to really, TRULY desire any real sort of dress up.
And continuing with that theme, I actually dressed up last night, too, but that is for a different post.
Easter Sunday was so delightful on many different levels. For one, it was exactly two weeks from when Angus was born. Two, because it was Easter Sunday, I was thrilled that I was feeling up to getting myself and my newborn to mass (we did go to the earliest mass possible to avoid tons and tons of people, though, this postpartum, weepy, emotional momma cannot deal with the drama of a gazillion people at church breathing on her newborn). Three, it was so pretty out...the right temperature and super sunny. I even got to get a little vitamin D for both Angus and me (we are a bit sun-deprived, not a whole lot of it in the bed with the curtains closed).
(BTW, for you Catholics out there who read my blog, Angus was born on the Annunciation of the Lord. I had forgotten that March 25 was that day. I wanted to see which saint's feast day was on his birthday, and when I discovered that is was the Annunciation instead of a saint, I was thrilled. For those of you who have no clue what I am talking about, check out this site for more.)
Okay, onto the Easter best. First five shots are of the Easter outfits for church and the last two are of the more casual dressy outfits for Easter dinner at my dad's.
Dress: Boden Limited Edition, Evie Dress. I will do a more detailed review in the Boden Weekly Review Roundup tomorrow (first "real" one in a while), but until then, let's just say that jersey silk fabric combined with pretty colors in the right size and shape does A WHOLE LOT to buoy the spirits of a woman who still has scars and extra weight and even just a tiny little bit of pain. I totally heart this dress. (Oh, Boden babes, there is something funky going down with my coupon code in my sidebar...and I cannot find a decent replacement, and for that I am truly sorry. The big mid-season sale is still going on, but as of right now there is NO WAY for me to get you all access to free shipping and returns. Which is a big bummer! If any of you have a code you can share, would you drop it in the comments?)
Shoes: J. Crew Greta Suede Wedges.
Necklace: J. Crew.
CW is hamming it up in a Just Ducky designs dress and top, and a pair of Miss Trish of Capri for Target sandals.
The coat I am wearing is the Spring Trench from Boden, btw, and I did a review a while back. CW has on a darling little cashmere cardigan from Garnet Hill that was $29 on super sale. Even on super sale, I still bought it two sizes too big, I want that garment to last her a long time.
Dress: Garnet Hill. Been wearing a lot of Garnet Hill jersey lately. Seriously so soft.
Shoes: J. Crew Greta Suede Wedges. (Also worn to mass.)
Necklace: J. Crew.
Okay, that's all...you have a fabulous Tuesday!!!
P.S. If you are a Boden fan and you have a recent review that you might think I have missed (from the past few weeks or so) and would like to have included in tomorrow's roundup, would you mind terribly either sticking the link in the comment section and/or e-mailing me at dinagideon AT aim DOT com? I did see the one or two that came up today, but I definitely have been a bit occupied and may have missed some from earlier. THANK YOU!
