Stella Style

Let me start with a thanks for all the votes and sweet comments from the last round! Very excited to take part in the icon challenge, especially because I picked Stella McCartney as my inspiration.
I love Stella Mccartney's style and designs- she melds modern and vintage so perfectly with clean lines and sweet details. I swoon over anything she has a hand in, and love the way she incorporates classic pieces and makes them hip.
The band jacket was a must for me, and with lace details and gold buttons it has a hint of femininity. The "maestro" style top was a labor of love with all the pleats on the bodice, and the capris are perfectly tailored to accentuate the shape of the tops. From the trimmed cuffs to the pleats in the pant leg, little details really gave this look the Stella touch. 

I was pretty excited as this look came together as I had envisioned- especially once I pulled the painters tape off of the freshly spray painted rainboots!
So now is the time where you can head over to Project Run + Play and vote on a favorite look- check it out and let me know who inspires you!

Great job! I love that band jacket. I recreated one of SM's dresses last year for my little girl, too. She has a great sense of style.

I'm with Sophie! all time best! but I want to know about the shirt with the pleated placket. Did you make it? Did you use a pattern? Make one up?

@meg That pleated placket took forever! Glad you noticed it. The top was just sized off of a button down from my son- kind of winged it.

I can't get over this look. I want it all for my Elsie. In fact, I'm probably just going to copy you exactly when I make her fall coat. K? thanks. BRAVO LINDSAY!

The whole outfit is amazing. I love band jackets, you chose a great colour and all the details are gorgeous. It'd be fantatic if you did a tutorial. I have a couple of items from the SM for Gap range that I got a couple of years ago for my oldest son when he was 2. One of them is a military style navy wool jacket, even in the sale it was expensive but I couldn't resist. My youngest son is nearly big enough to wear them both now, can't wait to see him in them.

Totally used my husband's school-assignment-blog to post a reply- oops. But there was some major winging involved but just might post a tutorial when PR+P is over!
