Well I am shattered again today – my little boy is still home sick though on the mend – but the sleepless nights are taking their toll…Anyway while I’m working from home I might as well try my new Boden Spring Preview items on that arrived yesterday! For some reason these were all shipped from the UK so arrived after my orders placed only the other week but in no hurry for them as they are all tunics to be worn when the sun is shining here.
One item has been returned and sorry I already sent it back so no photo – the Uptown tunic in Moss was really disappointing – very murky green and didn’t feel worth the price tag.
I LOVE the Ibiza tunic – it is styled just like the Pool Party tunic from last year but I think the fabric is a bit thicker and the quail egg color is yummy.
I ordered all 4 prints of the Notch Neck tunic as I’ve had similar linen tunics before from Boden and they have always been my staple go to item in the summer but there wasn’t a version of this last year so snapped up these in case there isn’t one next year! For those of you that have had them before they normally have a piece of elastic across the back for a little give and movement – many people didn’t like it as they thought it made the tunic less dressy so this year there isn’t one. I personally preferred it with the elastic as it made it more comfortable and much easier to fasten the side zip over the empire line seam. I really struggle to get the zip all the way up on these so MM will be required for assistance – it’s not that there isn’t enough fabric it’s just that the zip is really stubborn going over the seam. My favorite print is the silver riviera and I’ve just looked on the site and there is a 16 week wait for the sunflower country garden!!
Chic Spotty tunic in taupe is lovely too – just realized that in my sleepy state I have forgotten to photograph this one – if you are between sizes size down it’s generous – but has a lovely silky feel to it – a beautiful knit.
As for today it requires something comfy and snuggly but with a bit of bling to cheer up the dreary day here in Atlanta, so I have my old Gap jeans, an old H&M tee, Boden LE sparkle pocket pink cardigan (a clearance bargain), and Ugg Ansley slippers which I live in in the winter.
