Happy Friday - Dressed Down Boucle

Whoop whoop not only is it Friday but it's the start of our son's Easter holidays (in fact his last school holiday before he goes on exam leave *gulps* where on earth has that time gone?!  It doesn't seem that long ago when I was leaving him for his induction day at first school in floods of tears (me not him!!).  Although before the celebrations can continue he's got another 5 hour Graphics GCSE exam today to get through & his still suffering with this cold/flu virus that is doing the rounds.

Before I post today's outfit, Boden have just launched 25% off everything plus free postage & returns, so it seems the perfect time to share with you my picks from their latest drop, after all 25% discount is not to be sniffed at!

First up if you fancy a nod to the boho/70's theme this summer, what about this pretty embroidered dress.  I just love this & can see if looking stunning teamed with a denim jacket, tan wedges & cross body saddle bag.  Plus it also comes in navy too if you prefer a strong colour.






Or if you're after a pretty top to go with some flares then they have a similar designed top, again in both the pink & navy.






I currently have a Boden voucher burning a hole in my pocket & seeing as this is such a great discount I'm thinking it would be rude not to order this next top.  Available in three colour ways with my favourite two being the all white & the blue with white embroidery both perfect for summer days.  Which would you choose?  I think I'm leaning towards the white.








Of course everyone needs a denim jacket come summer time as they're just perfect for throwing over summer dresses on cooler days & I'm loving the detailing on the neckline on this jacket - something that little bit different.






And of course with 25% off it's a great time to buy the shoe of the moment.  Having found my Office black shoes that are a similar design so useful I can highly recommend this style for adding a bit of interest to your outfits.






Now I don't know about you but I'm always on the look out for a white dress come the summer as it's perfect for teaming with a tan not to mention a denim jacket, I always think it always looks so fresh.  

This pintuck dress with spaghetti straps looks like it would be a great holiday dress that could so easily be accessorised with different pieces to create several different looks whilst you're away.  Plus it also in a stunning bright orange shade & as well as navy if you want more colour.






Or maybe even this tunic - a little more covered up so perfect for cooler days & it appears to have a bit of tasselling detailing - which naturally I love!!






Back to today & after a fantastic but busy day yesterday I'm keeping things nice & simple with a boucle Zara jacket dressed down with some boyfriend jeans & trainers.

So a quick update from my day yesterday - photoshoot involving hair & make up (I could so do with this every day!), spent with some truly amazing women followed by a spot of shopping & bubbles at the Wallis Re-Launch of their Marble Arch flagship store - I think that pretty much sums up one of my most perfect days!  A more detailed report to follow on the blog soon with pictures from the shoot I promise - I'm not allowed to share any outfit pics until the magazine comes out (beginning of June I think!) so will update you as soon as I can!

So back to reality with a bump today - a ton of work to get through let along a mountain or ironing - oh the glamour!!  But it's hubby's birthday tomorrow so we're off out for a celebratory family meal tonight & school breaks up so happy days indeed :-)
