Daily Outfit ♥ Mother's Day Boden Special

There aren't many labels that I love for both the girls and myself - but one that I do have a massive thing for is Boden.

I love that all their clothes have a vintage feel to them. Capri pants, tea dresses and full skirts for me and corduroy pinafores and cotton dresses in stripes and florals for the girls. When it to comes to children's clothes, Boden are officially THE most hard wearing out of any brand out there. The girls have second, third and even fourth hand dresses which are all still immaculate so I don't mind paying that little bit extra for them, as I know they'll last.

As a special Mother's Day treat, Boden offered Daisy and I a piece each from their SS14 range.

I chose jersey lined anorak in an orange and pink daisy print for Daisy as she needed a lighter jacket for the Spring. The British weather can be so unpredictable at this time of year and this one is ideal as it's warm but lightweight - and shower proof too. I love the super soft, contrasting stripy green lining!

For myself I chose this gorgeous Nancy dressClassic - but casual - day dresses are my thing, and this fifties inspired frock is the perfect colour, the perfect length and the perfect fit for me. The black and blue pattern means it can be worn with either black tights and patent t-bars for a dressier look, or bare legs and Salt Water sandals when the sun's out. (I'm wearing my Ruby + Ed suede pumps in the picture above). I love the low back and the fullness of the skirt. I have an inkling this is going to be one of my favourite summer dresses this year - and they do it in a yellow sunflower pattern and a French Riviera print too which is bad news for my bank account!

The Jersey Lined Anorak retails at £38 and the Nancy Dress at £89.

DISCLAIMER: Boden gifted me the Nancy dress in blue and Daisy the orange daisy anorak in exchange for this post.


  1. Beautiful classic pieces. I love Mini Boden, unfortunately my budget does not! I find their items always look near new, wash and wear exceptionally well and like you said they have a vintage feel about them which is wistful and timeless. That dress looks perfect for your figure :)
