Boden sale haul!

Oh goodness words cannot describe how happy I am with my sale haul.  Let’s take this step by step…

Chic leather biker jacket

This jacket is just lovely as I had hoped – I’ve had my eye on it all season.  The leather is so soft and the grey is a perfect neutral that goes with anything and everything from jeans to dresses to shorts – love it and worth every penny in the sale.  I ordered my usual US 6 and it fits great across the back and shoulders and in the arms – a little snug around my ample midriff but I’m unlikely to ever wear it fastened.

Skinny jeans

I ordered these as a ‘oh let’s just try them’ as I have never ordered Boden jeans before, and tend to stick with my faithful Gap and Hudson brands, but I loved the cyclamen and quail egg colors so much that I needed to see them.  I am so glad I did.  Again I ordered in my regular US 6 and they are a higher waist than my Hudsons but really comfy – they are a tad snug when first pulled on but I’ve been wearing them for an hour or so now and they are just perfect.  Thrilled with them.

Sorry for the grainy photos – lighting isn’t great!

Florence tunic

I ordered both the fennel and the navy for a pop of color and something classic.  They are a little thinner and a little shorter than last years chic linen tunic but I love them all the same.  With nude shapewear underneath I can wear them as dresses though they are sheer – I’ll keep my legs together.  I just love how summery they feel – they’d be great with leggings too if you are in cooler climates!  No photos yet but will sort that out for you:)

Bloom Beach bag

Just fabulous – HUGE and colorful – with a gorgeous turquoise lining – I love it.  Will stay dry by the pool and look fantastic – wish I’d bought this sooner but I can’t wait to take it to Kyrenia next year!

Jersey striped scarf

I have to say this is the hit of the haul – I hadn’t even considered it until Avril at School Gate Style put it on her wish list – but it is my most favorite item of the lot.  It’s large, drapey, soft and a fabulous grey with a trim of color.  It can be worn all year and will be perfect for transatlantic flights back home – I just love it and want all the other colors too!  Get it while you can for $24 it is fabulous.

So today I am wearing my gorgeous cyclamen jeans and they feel great – perfect for a rainy summer day in Atlanta.  I’ve paired them with my Zara butterfly top and I know butterflies and birds are omnipresent right now but I love this top and it was all of $36!  The navy one with collar is in the sale right now online for $19.99.  I think my turquoise Tory Burch Emmy sandals look fun with the jeans but maybe it’s too much color?  All topped off with my cream J.Crew light weight cashmere cardigan – it’s chilly in my air conditioned office!

Oh and I forgot to mention the gorgeous little touch from Boden – they slipped in a little notebook in one of my parcels – room to take notes plus some splendid quirky English tips like interpreting English English for Americans:)  One of my favorite Facebook pages is who serve up quaint little English tidbits daily – it’s fun.

What have been your favorite Boden sale purchases?

    Also a fan of Quite Peckish – gives me a little smile in the morning:-) I have never ordered from Boden but have browsed their site so for a beginner what would you say is a “signature” Boden piece that i could maybe pick up in the sale… the jeans btw, colour is fantastic!

      Hi Pauline! Thanks for reading! Gosh there are a few Boden classics – I always gravitate towards their tunics – this one is lovely if you want to wear it as a top and is a classic Boden print
      Or if like me you like to wear them as dresses try this one
      Their jackets are also great especially the macs and tweed that will be coming out for Fall at the end of this month – in the sale I love this mac and would have it if there was call for one in Atlanta
      The Must have jumper has also been a huge hit for me this season
      and their cashmere is always fantastic quality and worth a couple of sale purchases!! The list is endless really lol:) Let me know if you take the plunge and what you order – you can return sale items for a refund if you return within 7 days of receipt!

        I’ll let you know if I take the plunge – I’m in South Carolina and unfortunately rarely have use for a nice mac but I do love that one, but not sure I could justify buying it!! Love the jumper though and I’m a sucker for knitware – I think I’m the only person in this State that looks forward to the cold weather so I can bring out the jumpers and cardis!!

    I love those jeans on you, I can’t wear Boden skinny jeans ( just the straight leg ones for me) as being a pear shape they are not very flattering on the thigh area for me, I really wished that they had the straight leg jeans in this colour as its gorgeous. I managed to find an American website which still had the Thelma ash wedges in clay, in the sale too £93!!!! Bargain, unfortunately I had to pay £20 in postage, not quite the bargain I’d hoped lol !! Ordered them anyway, the jacket is gorgeous too. Still raining here in Manchester, but at least it means I will get a lot of wear out of my Thelma’s !!
