Throwback Thursday with Boohoo

12 Feb

Red Boohoo Dress with Black Tights

As I’m typing this, I’m snuggled up in my bed, wearing my heaviest sweatshirt and sitting on the warmest of electric heating pads. Yes, it’s still winter, and my plan to permanently escape to Florida hasn’t made any headway. Luckily I have this cheery red Boohoo dress to add some spice to my life. Isn’t it amazing how color can instantly lift your mood?

Today I’ve teamed up with Boohoo to share my #TBT (Throwback Thursday) style icon. Boohoo.com is a UK-based fashion website that offers a huge selection of affordable fashion. When I say huge, I’m not exaggerating. They have over 1,000 dresses alone! Ranging from dressy to casual, you can find just about anything you want, which is amazing!

 When I started thinking about my style icons, Jackie Kennedy instantly came to mind. Her style was timeless, and it continues to inspire women today. I love that she took the simple route, and used her accessories to really make her outfit shine. Be it her hats, oversized earrings or iconic pearl necklaces, Jackie Kennedy’s is the ultimate style icon.When I put an outfit together, I try to not go overboard with mixing and matching or over-accessorizing. Sometimes a simple statement makes the biggest statement of all, and Jackie is proof of that.

Red Dress with Black Tights

I styled this pleated red dress from Boohoo with Jackie Kennedy in mind. I really like the structure of it, and the fact that it has pockets. I’m a sucker for pockets. Simple pieces are always appealing to me because you have a lot of different styling options. Because it’s the middle of winter, I added opaque tights. Then, in true Jackie style, I put on some of my favorite jewelry to pull the whole outfit together.

Simple Red Dress

Not only is this dress Jackie-esque, but it’s also perfect for Valentine’s Day! It’s supposed to be extremely cold on Saturday, but depending on my mood, this dress is looking like a viable option. We shall see. Happy Thursday!
