I Feel Pretty | Sixties Style

The Christmas season officially kicks off with our annual girls’ day at the ballet.  Last weekend, my mother, sisters, daughters and I went to see The Nutcracker.  We thoroughly enjoy our little girls’ only, no boys allowed, tradition.  Although the guys wouldn’t want to come anyway.  Instead they had some male bonding over wings, darts and football.  🙂

I wore this bright Sixties Sweater from Boden USA along with jacquard ankle pants and leopard heels.  My mom said I looked like Audrey Hepburn in this outfit.  I’ll definitely take that as a compliment!

    I can see why your mom made the comparison. The neck on the top is what really gave it the 60s feel. Cute!

  • You look so pretty in yellow! Isn’t the Nutcracker the best? We took our little girl a couple of years ago and she was enthralled.

  • I just love Boden! And I also love that you have a girls day to see The Nutcracker! How fun!

  • The collar of that top is so flattering!

  • Ashley

    I love the contrast collar tunic, it’s gorgeous!!!

  • You definitely do have an Audrey vibe going. And as she was so poised and elegant, so are you.

    These types of gender-separate activities used to pain me ’cause, forced to play sports and act tough, I longed to accompany the girls to ballet. *sigh*

  • Morgan

    Alison – you look gorgeous! I love that you have such a great tradition with just the girls. Sounds like a wonderful way to kick start the season!

  • That broderie tunic is adorable! Love outfit you have on, too!

  • LOVE the mix of bold mustard and leopard!

  • Oh, I love Boden! Such classic, well-made clothes! I think I would go for one of their striped tees, like the “Autumn Breton” striped shirt. And I loooooooove the retro ’60s look on you, especially with your bouncy, shiny hair. Gorgeous! 🙂

  • I want this whole look! That neckline is stunning. And you do look like Audrey Hepburn.

    To be truly honest, if I won this giveaway, I’d buy lightweight crewneck and lightweight boatneck tees. I have so many necklaces that I’d like to show off and simple tees seem to work best for me versatility-wise. Thanks for the chance to win!
