Boden Fall Items

I had a 20% off code a few weeks ago, so decided to order a few things from Boden for October.  I was really pleased with most of it and kept almost everything.

British Tweed Mini

Boden British Tweed MiniI love this skirt for fall.  The plaid fabric is nice and the colors are muted.  I paired it with these naturalizer heels and a sweater from Loft last season.  I ended up ordering this in a 6R because I wanted it to be around this length to wear with tights.  (I normally go for long lengths at Boden which is one of the things I love about them!)

Sixties Mini Part 1

Hot dog dogs!

I am in love with this skirt, which is a good thing since I ordered it in 2 colors.  Here I’m wearing the navy in a 6L (love the longer length, doesn’t really make it a “mini” though) with the printed top that has tiny little dachshund dogs on it size 6.  Adorable!!

I actually wore this outfit to work today.  I tried it on last night, loved it and put it out to wear the very next day.

And this is the sixties mini again in the Bright Coral color paired with the patterned jumper with tiny british soldiers on it.  I love the sweater.  It fits nicely and is so soft!  I got the sweater in a size 8 because I wanted to be able to wear a button down shirt underneath for layering, but it fits nicely even without an extra layer.  I can sometimes get a size 6 in sweaters so I think this one ran a tiny bit small.

Ponte Skater Dress

Boden Ponte Skater Dress

This was the only item that (very regrettably) had to go back.  The fabric was nice, the color was great, the swish of the skirt was fantastic, but the bodice just didn’t work for me.  The darts stood out leaving puckers of fabric in an unattractive way and it just didn’t work for me.  I have since decided to reorder it in the plum color in a size 4L with hopes that the top would fit better but I’m not sure if that will work.  I ordered plum since they didn’t have the green in my size at the moment (it has since been restocked.)  I really hope the plum one works out!

One thought on “Boden Fall Items

  1. I love the british tweed mini outfit. It looks beautiful on you. The shoes are really cute, too.

    That’s too bad about the dress, but yeah, if the darts are off, there really isn’t much you can do to fix them. I guess a tailor could help you out, but probably not worth it.
