The Boden Fest is Over!

I'm slowly recovering today from the Boden Party. What an amazing couple of days and a fantastic turn-out - thank you everyone who called on the day, sent messages of support and ordered remotely. I really appreciate it. And if you are planning a Boden spend in the coming week or so, do drop me a mail as my code is valid for another few days. I'm not allowed to share it online but can share on email. 20% off with free delivery and free returns and all commission will go to my charity, Action Mental Health.
I've got some photos of before and during the party that I'll share on another post. Right now, my bed is calling after a late night packing up in preparation for the collection of my items today so just a quick outfit post for this Friday. Taken in a completely new place. The benefits of your downstairs having full length mirrors in every (changing) room!
Working my new breton - direct from...you've guessed it, Boden! It was a really awful day today so I threw on a neon/taupe scarf.
and then a Zara mac for the school run rain and wind

Mac - Zara (thrifted)
Breton Top - Boden
Scarf (gifted)
Indigo Skinny Jeans - Heatons
Taupe Suede Boots - Mango (SS12)
And that Boden try on I promised...those pesky customers meant I didn't get ONE minute to myself to try on! But I did pick out some favourites (that would NEVER have attracted me on the website but were fabulous in real life) and I will share them on my party post, along with what I wore on the day which was obviously Boden too!
Happy Friday x
