At this point in her career, it’s difficult to separate Sarah Jessica Parker from Carrie Bradshaw.

Especially now that she has her new shoe collection to promote, it’s as if real-life Sarah Jessica and shoe-loving Carrie have morphed into one and the same person.

The lines are blurred even further now that it seems SJP has chosen layering tops under her dresses as her go-to look while on her shoe line’s promotional tour. The mix-and-match-everything style is unmistakably Patricia Field dressing Carrie Bradshaw.

The only thing missing is a gigantic flower brooch, and SJP’s outfit would’ve looked like it came straight from the early aughts.

Sarah Jessica kicked off the SJP Collection promotional tour in a pleated pink Valentino dress, which she layered with a mesh-sleeved top underneath.

SJP did the shirt-under-a-dress look again for the launch of the SJP Collection at The Grove in LA on March 6.

This time, she added black tights, making it look as if she was wearing a full-length black bodysuit underneath her white Dolce & Gabbana eyelet dress. We think it’s a great way to transform an otherwise sexy, skin-baring look into something cute and quirky.

For her promotional tour’s most recent stop at Nordstrom in Florida, SJP wore a full button-down shirt underneath a pink Saint Laurent lace dress.

The addition of the stirrup leggings is undeniably Patricia Field’s influence, and you can’t get anymore Carrie Bradshaw than those SJP “Carrie” t-strap pumps.
