New Outfit Post - A Favourite Colour Combo & The Boden Mega Sale!

Last week of work before Christmas - yippee & now we've got our son's karate grading out of the way (did I mention he PASSED!!!! :-) ) we can now concentrate on Crimbo!

The sales seem to be starting early this year with Boden already launching their up to 50% off sale.......anyone hit the button yet?!!  Naturally I've had to take a quick peak.....all for research purposes you understand ;-)

I've currently got a few babies on my radar, which I thought I'd share as all of these have been reduced by 50%.

Starting with this leopard print scarf.......now I don't need to even say why I'm loving this do I & at £12.50 even if it didn't find a home in my wardrobe (hard to believe I know!!) then it would make a stunning birthday present for a  friend.

This lovely embellished clutch has also been reduced by 50% & is a great neutral colour.  Not only perfect for all the celebrations over the next couple of weeks but ideal for summer holidays as well.  Personally I've found the best way of travelling light is to take metallic shoes & bags so this clutch would be ideal.

I'm really surprised by some of the gorgeous items that Boden have discounted by the full 50% & this cream faux fur gilet is no exception.  I mean seriously who doesn't love a gilet & being cream it's going to go with everything, not to mention perfect for layering over a denim shirt or biker jacket.

Now I've featured this embellished jumper before on the blog.  Again reduced by 50%, this would look fab dressed up with navy wax effect jeans & some sparkly shoes for Crimbo but I'm also loving the thought of it dressed down with boyfriend jeans & some flats for a great laid back look too.

Love this sequin skirt so much, a real wardrobe classic that could be brought out every party season.  I'd love to see this teamed with a simple grey 'V' neck mark t-shirt & oversized tuxedo jacket.

Or how about this loose fitting cotton top.  Another great buy for spring/summer & so easy to wear teamed with distressed jeans & ballet pumps.

Or finally for anyone still lusting after their stunning jewelled pumps can you believe Boden have reduced the navy version by 40%?!!  I have them in the navy & they are seriously gorgeous so if you've been hovering now would be a brilliant time to click that button!!

Finishing with what I'm wearing today - a favourite colour combo of grey & navy.

A busy day at work & then off to our son's school to see him get awarded his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award....is it just me or does anyone else suffer with a numb bum when attending such things at school.....if only I could take a cushion!!

Don't forget to I'd love to hear what you've ordered from the Boden sale & in the meantime happy Monday....somehow a Monday doesn't feel so bad when you know you're breaking up at the end of the week for two weeks ;-)
