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 http://www.facebook.com/quitepeckish 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…..love 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 http://www.bodenusa.com/en-US/Womens-Tunics-Kaftans/3_4-Sleeved-Tops/WA359-DAQ/Womens-Ocean-Bold-Spot-Hotchpotch-Tunic.html?NavGroupID=88
      Or if like me you like to wear them as dresses try this one http://www.bodenusa.com/en-US/Womens-Tunics-Kaftans/WL660-PEW/Womens-Pewter-Passion-Flower-Border-Print-Tunic.html
      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 http://www.bodenusa.com/en-US/Womens-Coats-Jackets/Coats/WE333-NAP/Womens-Navy-Bubbles-Spring-Trench.html?NavGroupID=2
      The Must have jumper has also been a huge hit for me this season http://www.bodenusa.com/en-US/Womens-Knitwear/Jumpers/WK723-GRY/Womens-Grey-Melange-Must-Have-Jumper.html?NavGroupID=6
      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 !!
