I do realise, as I’m perched here on the breakfast bar right next to the snowy scene of devastation that is currently our garden, that talking about holiday dressing might be a bit of a stretch, but honestly, I’m all about the escapism. Right now, if I can imagine myself on a sunkissed beach somewhere, I’m a very happy bunny. So even if your current surroundings might not scream (or even whisper) new bikini, I feel that we could all do with a bit of beach dreaming to warm us up. And with so many gorgeous holiday clothes new in at Boden, it would be rude not to have a quick look, no?
The perfect swimsuit
I mean: stripes, the perfect fit, a cute slogan… what’s not to love about this ‘jump in’ swimsuit? Plus it’s got some very clever body sculpting lining, and those all-important lightly padded cups (nobody needs to see nipples, am I right?).
The sweetest ruffled dress
I mean, just look at it! the Michaela jersey dress basically has everything that makes a perfect holiday dress: the lightest, drapiest jersey material, the sweetest floral print (there’s a navy one too, but I love this red), perfect ruffles on the sleeve and hem, and a wrap that’s fixed so you won’t be forever fiddling with it. I know I always say this with dresses, but think how cute it would look with white trainers.
The brightest beach cover up
There’s something about summer holidays that make even the most monochrome amongst us hurl ourselves at anything bright and floral. I’m all for brights on the beach and this Jodie tropical print kaftan is sublime. I love that it properly covers your bum (but isn’t too long either) and the fluted sleeves are a nice detail. But how fabulous is that print? It’s tropical and 1960s wallpaper all at once.
The jumpsuit that’s made for holidays
I never really saw myself as a jumpsuit kind of person, but then I never thought you’d see me in culottes until I fell in love with the gorgeous pinstripe Bryce culottes from hush (more hush spring gorgeousness here). I changed my mind, though, as soon as I saw this stripe wrap jumpsuit. I’m not actually as keen on it in the navy, but in the stripe it’s just made for easy, holiday dressing. Just bung it on, add sandals and you’re good to go.
Perfect pompom sandals
Talking of sandals, these are adorable. They’re also available in pink and navy, but I love these rose gold ones (not sure if the raffia pompom is navy or black, but I like them either way).
All gorgeous. And they’re just the highlights. I bet you’ll find loads of other things that you love too. Let me know!
