I remember my Mum getting the Boden catalogue when I was a kid. I used to leaf through it and be fascinated by the fact that they used “real models” with real stories to tell. I also remember thinking that it all looked a bit frumpy and Mummy-ish.
Fast-forward a good few years and guess what? I bloody love a lot of their their stuff. Some of it is still a bit frumpy, but they do amazing cashmere, beautiful shoes and whenever Poppy has a special occasion coming up I always turn to Mini-Boden for a cute and well made dress. (This obviously means that I’m turning into my mother!)
Anyway, I wanted to recommend a couple of things that I’ve purchased recently now that Spring has sprung.
The first is this really cute Breton style top with added sparkle (£27.60). It comes up quite large so I’d go for a size down if you like your tops to be figure hugging. It’s perfect for me though as it fits over my rapidly growing bump really nicely. I’d style it with boyfriend jeans and plimsolls for a laid-back Spring look.
My other purchase is these ankle boots (£103.20). They’re quite expensive but are really good quality and will go with everything from dresses and skirts to skinny jeans. If grey’s not your colour you can also get them in tan and navy. They’re super comfy too:
Happy Spring fellow mamas.
