I love Boden.
Especially Boden Mini. I seem to always find fab items for Miss Marnie.
For myself not so much – the odd dress or pair of shoes here and there. But, sometimes I wonder if I’m actually stopping myself as buying from Boden means ‘mummy clothes’ right?
Well, yes and no – some items I would still consider a bit ‘old’ for me but when you really look there are some fabulous buys to be found.
After popping along to a recent Boden event they kindly offered Miss Marnie and I the pick of the catalogue. I was thinking yeah (for Miss M) and yikes (for me)!
Until, I flicked through and found this fabulous dress. Now you’ve properly seen it – on Instagram/other blogs or on Donna Air who wore it to a recent event – it has been a massive hit this summer.
It also reminded me of a skirt I’ve had forever from the very first Autograph collection for Marks & Spencer (that I still wear on thin days!).
I love a holiday print especially an Italian Riveria looking one (Hence, why I am still lusting after this digital wallpaper from Cath Kidston – I will have it one day!)
I think because ‘storytelling’ prints are timeless. I will wear this dress all summer and know I can still wear for for many more to come.

And, when my friend texted me this image saying ‘surely this is what you’re picking, right? Its got your name written all over it…’ I guess the decision was made.
So, with that I promptly ordered the ‘Nancy’ dress for myself and choose a English harbour/seaside printed romper for Miss M – and we both wore them on a recent day out.
I kept my look simple with flat sandals from Office and no accessories – I felt the dress was a statement enough. For Miss M I teamed the playsuit with her canvas pumps from Trotters and her trusted Pointelle cardigan from Marks & Spencer.
But, you could also wear these pieces with these fab accessories:

MINI: Hat by H&M | Harbour print playsuit by Boden | Sandals by SunSun at Saltwater
