Style Icon: Nancy Botwin aka Mary Louise Parker in Weeds


I am totally obsessed with Weeds! We have just started watching Season 3 so for those of you who are far ahead, don't spoil it! Anyway, I love the show, but I particularly love Mary Louise Parker's character Nancy Botwin and everything about her. She's chill, laid back, smart, witty and most importantly, extremely stylish!

Nancy's style is very California in my opinion except for her wearing black most of the time. She has an easy, flowy silhouette in most of her ensembles and there's a sense of luxury there without looking overly fussy or too done up. She also has a bit of a boho quality to her look, which I totally love! Some other things about Nancy's style are 1. she's a drug dealer so she always needs a big purse, 2. she's a mom so I think easy is key for her, 3. she's a single widow so she's sexy when it counts and 4. she lives in a wealthy suburban community, so there's always a sense of luxury to her wardrobe.

Here are some outfits I've put together in the style of Nancy Botwin:

1. Casual Day

2. Casual Day Denim

3. Another Casual Day Denim

4. Evening 1

5. Evening 2

So are you a fan of Weeds? Do you love Nancy's Style? Would you wear these looks? I think I totally would, especially if I had Mary Louise Parker's body!

  1. OMG I love Weeds too! Nancy has such a cool style!

    Also, I have a giveaway going on at my blog for a $20 gift certificate to Green Apple Paperie if you're interested. They have super cute stuff!

  2. I love that show!!! And I agree Nancy's style is amazing! It helps to look like Mary Louise Parker. That first look is my favorite - it's so well put together.

  3. i LOVE weeds too!! Nancy always looks so good! Love the outfits you put together!

  4. I don't know if I could see her wearing a romper; too "playground chic" for a grown woman. Whenever I see someone in a romper, I think all they're missing is a plastic pail and shovel.
