The British Invasion

So I regularly go to Boden‘s website to look at all of their adorable British clothing and wish that it was less expensive so that a non-posh regular non-profit worker like me could afford it. Well folks, this is my week!

There is a big sale going on at Boden right now, and I scooped up quite a few deals. Normally I wouldn’t purchase so much but the Mr and I sacrificed an entire Saturday recently to the mall and left pretty disappointed in the offerings. With that in mind, I knew I needed work clothes, and Boden is known for some high quality pieces. I picked up:

The Pretty Shift Dress in navy. I cannot wait to get my hands on this dress. I’ve wanted an eyelet dress to wear to work for quite a while, and this one is pretty perfect for a summer office day. Special shoutout to my girl Sharishta who found this one on the website while we were both drooling over everything. Classic shape in a beautiful modern fabric.

The Flower Organza Skirt in yellow. I didn’t get the matching top, although I do think its a cute look. I love yellow, but my coloring just does not lend itself to yellow shirts or dresses. A skirt seems like a great way to incorporate this cheery color. I also love the texture and I can’t wait to see how the length looks. It seems like a fun but totally classy look.

The Kensington Dress

The Kensington Dress. I Love this little number. So classy and timeless. I anticipate getting a lot of wear out of this one. It’s also available in an adorable blue color, which I just may pick up if they have any in my size and I like how this fits.

I have been lusting after the Flowershow Dress since it first appeared in their catalog. I don’t really have anywhere to wear this, but since it was finally on sale and still available in my size after months of coveting, I felt like I needed to buy it and see if an occasion will appear. It is such a pretty fun dress and I cannot wait to find somewhere to wear it. Maybe I’ll make the Mr take me on a fancy picnic or something.

So this is part of what happens when I give up tv for the #30daydetox. I accomplished quite a few other things last night as well but more on that tomorrow…

Happy shopping everyone!
