Been a while since I’ve done one of these hasn’t it? Well, I think I’m pretty much done with the sales now (post coming on all my bargains) and ready to embrace the new season.
Back in November, I attended the Boden SS14 press day at Somerset House.
It was a riot of colour and gorgeous sorbet shades which could not have seemed more attractive on that rainy, glum winter’s day.
So, without further ado, here are my favourite styles of the season:
Cashmere Crew Neck Jumper – £99
I must confess that this jumper is already sitting pretty in my wardrobe. A cashmere crew neck is a vital wardrobe staple and Boden have issued this style in 14 shades for the new season. I was very tempted by the lilac but plumped for the pink as it is better for my skin tone. The quality is great, though I did size up to a 12 as I prefer a slightly slouchier fit. It will be great for keeping me warm but feeling bright and springy through the remaining winter months.
Chelsea Slingbacks – £99
I have often waxed lyrical about Boden footwear styles and this season is no exception. I love these gold slingbacks – I think they’d be great with charcoal slim leg trousers and a white shirt to jazz up my workwear.
Cotswold Weekend Top – £49
I don’t normally go a bundle on the more boho styles, but I was really taken by this top at the press day. The addition of the neon embroidery makes it seem a little fresher than your average smock top. I’m seeing it with distressed denim and simple flat sandals.
Wool Bistro Crop – £89
I really love these trousers, but with my thighs being my ‘trouble-zone’, I’m not sure if I could pull them off. If I was leaner of leg, however, I’d wear them with a silver-grey sweater and silver flats.
Pointed Slingbacks – £69
Speaking of silver flats, these are another new addition to my wardrobe. I have last summer’s orange version which I wore to death, so these seemed a logical investment. I love metallic footwear and they will go with so much.
Sophie Lace Top – £59
I’m so tempted by this lace top. I think it would look so lovely with the silver flats and a pair of boyfriend jeans. The pretty pink is so refreshing after a winter of navy and grey.
Modern Stripy Top – £35
A variation on the more conventional Breton tee, I love the bold striped on this top. I’d team this with indigo skinnies and the gold kitten heel slingbacks.
Mosaic Statement Necklace – £59
And wouldn’t this fabulous statement necklace be the perfect finishing touch to that outfit? I love the mix of brights!
Mya Bag – £99
Loving a bit of matchy-matchy is my secret shame, but I’m really taken by the idea of this gold bag worn with those slingbacks and a simple grey marl sweat and ripped jeans. I’ve already got a gold bag so I really cannot justify this, but I do LOVE it. I don’t have a pair of gold shoes though….
