I’ve been a big Boden fan for a long time. Long before the days of instagram and blogs, I’d trawl through their paper catalogues – turning over the corners of the pages and dreaming of new outfits. I always know I can rely on them to create clothes and shoes that’ll make me feel my best self. I’m delighted to announce that I’ll now be working as a Boden ambassador, which means sharing my favourites with you each month – plus an exclusive discount for you!
Here’s what I’m wearing and loving from the current collection at Boden…
The bold and the beautiful
No one does pattern and colour quite like Boden. I’m always drawn to their gorgeous prints, especially in summertime. The Albany jersey maxi skirt, with its swirly blue bird print, is a perfect example.
Like all Boden jersey dresses and skirts, it’s a very flattering cut with a forgiving elasticated waist. Its a fixed wraparound style, with a slit up the front – allowing for graceful movement and a lovely flowiness (is that even a word? It should be). The jersey has a lovely weight to it, which means it’s great for the cooler temperatures of spring and you can’t see your knickers through it.
Worried you’re too short for a maxi skirt? I’m only 5″4 and have short legs, but I feel taller and more graceful in this skirt. I’m wearing it with the Beatrix flat sandals, but it would look even more elegant and willowy with some block heels.
Tees that are a bit extra
Boden do great quality tops and tees that always manage to make you feel a little bit extra. The Olivia linen tee I wear in these photos looks really plain and simple from the front, but has a gorgeous rope detail on the back. It’s not at all flashy, but feels really special!
Sailor stripes and sandals that go with everything
Boden are famous for their stripes and their classic jersey dresses. The two are combined wonderfully in the Amelie dress. It’s a comfortable, flattering cut that’s easy to dress up or down – whether you’re in the office or running around after the kids.
Obviously the best thing about the Amelie dress is that it has pockets! And if stripes aren’t your thing, then it comes in another eight colours and patterns.
The Beatrix sandals in navy go with everything. They’re also super comfy. The raffia detail looks just as fab on the city streets as it will on the beach this summer.
