FASHION | Boden Blues

So I keep seeing Boden popping up on a few blogs lately (like Katy's perfect Breton and Jaclyn's dreamy shoes) so I thought I'd have a little browse to see what else they had going on. I'm 23 days in on a fashion spending ban and I'm doing well but after checking the site out I'm feeling spendy....uh-oh! I'm really feeling blue shades right now as we go into Spring (it's one of the few colours I'll actually wear) so I've gone for that kind of theme with my wishlist.


First things first we have that sweater, I mean look at that gorgeous neckline! I really love the three-quarter length sleeves. The bretons have been raved about by everyone so I had to pop one on the wishlist. I don't actually own one in this shade of blue, I'd like to add one in the collection for Spring/Summer though! The denim top is just my kind of thing, I can imagine it thrown on over black skinnies with Birkies, a little gold necklace and a messy bun. I'd love it tucked into a black denim skirt too! The bag I think is gorgeous, if I were to invest in another bag the colour I'd go for would definitely be navy...so chic!

Finally the shoes. THE SHOES. Be still my beating heart. You know when you see something and you're literally swooning? I just think they're beautiful from the navy suede to the pointy toes to the tassels on those marvellous laces. I don't actually own any 'smart' flats and navy would make a great alternative to my usual black. I'm seriously considering blowing my camera fund on them which is a big deal because I'm currently cameraless (and a blogger without a camera is a very sad thing indeed.) 

Have you shopped at Boden before? What colours are you feeling for Spring/Summer?

  2. Samesies! I rarely thought about Boden until they started popping up over the blogosphere, their shoes are to die for. I love your set Josie, I'm now dreaming of that breton top - I still haven't bought one!

  6. At least the good thing from a spending ban, is that you'll put off on buying things unless you know you REALLY want or need it. Usually I don't pick navy as a spring/summer shade, but now that I think about it, it works cause I get reminded of the beach :)

    I have really been loving the navy and white stripes trend lately! Blue is my favorite color so I'm glad it's been more popular this season. Great post - all of these items are gorgeous! :)

  18. I've never actually bought anything from Boden before but those shoes you've linked are amazing! I'm tempted to look at the site but afraid of what it'll do to my bank balance xx

  19. Great job on the spending ban, though! I like the simplicity of these picks, nice and minimalistic - great for springtime. :)

  20. Looks like this site has a lot of classic pieces - never heard of boden before, but will be checking them out now! And good on you for putting yourself on a shopping ban! I am sure your wallet will thank you! I think doing shopping bans remind us of how much we tend to blindlessly buy too though, so that after your shopping ban is over you will have a better sense of how to spend your money and when you do, you will really appreciate the items that much more!
