I love James Bond. I love the cheesy movies, young Sean Connery, and I even love the video games. I’ve always wanted to like martinis–shaken not stirred, of course. And I love the excuse to pop in a picture of Daniel Craig (happy Friday!)
But, what I’ve loved the most about James Bond are the sexy, intelligent, amazing Bond girls. The style and confidence of those women was out of this world. So, it is no surprise that Bond girls are my new favorite muse.
Here’s how I put together my Bond girl outfit, for less than $200–
1. Trench coat ($50 Target)
Hands down, this is the best $50 I have spent this year. I wear this coat daily. It flares out a bit at the waist and the belt is long enough to tie in a bow, adding a slight flirty touch. I also love that it hits just above the knee, so most of my skirts peek out from the hem.
2. Shades ($5 Forever 21)
Paired with my trench, these oversized shades give make me feel mysterious, powerful, and sexy. I might not be any of those things, but I sure do get a kick out of the combo.
3. Heels ($40 Payless)
If you are going to look like a Bond girl, you need some serious heels. Though not as ambitious as my nude pumps, these kicks from Payless have plenty of inches in the heel and feminine details in the side bow.
4. Dress ($89 Loft)
I like to have some color peek out from the trench and as evidenced from our blog name, I really like the pencil skirt silhouette. The length is work appropriate and color is springy.
