"Timeless everyday style"

Boden SS16 Edit & WIWT

So the new season's clothing is now pouring in & seeing as we're careering towards the end of January at an alarming rate I thought today I'd feature my picks from Boden's SS16 collection.

Now instead of featuring individual pieces I'm trying something a little bit different & thought it would be fun to create a few outfit posts instead.

So first off I've gone for two of my favourite loves - denim & various shades of blue.  This kind of outfit would be just perfect for running errands or the school run.  An ideal laid back weekend outfit that I'm just itching to re-create.  Luckily for hubby apart from the sweatshirt I have similar items hanging in my wardrobe.   Unluckily for hubby I think the sweatshirt will definitely need further investigation!

Thinking ahead to special occasions with this next look & if you're looking for a timeless outfit for a special occasion what about this dress?  Just stunning paired with these statement heels in a bright clashing colour that would be perfect for a summer wedding/day at the races.  Team this with a clutch in the same colour  as the shoes & you really would be good to go.

Back to a more casual outfit next.  I just love this linen tunic styled dress.  I reckon it would make a great wardrobe multi tasker.  Worn with a coatigan such as the stunning one below & funked up with trainers, or paired with white linen trousers for a more elegant look.  Not to mention teamed with gold sandals & a panama hat for holidays - simply effortless not to mention the most gorgeous shade of blue.

Another monochrome look next that's a little dressier & smarter.  All great wardrobe additions that can be inter-mixed & will stand the test of time.  Plus how stunning are the scallop pointed ballerinas, which are available in a whole host of colours.

Or what about these wide legged cropped trousers teamed with this stunning deep 'V' tee?  I just love this kind of t-shirt for wearing under a jacket & don't even get me started on the gorgeousness of the leopard print shoes - just divine!  Both the shoes & t-shirts are available in lots of gorgeous shades & I'm certain that it won't be long before a few of these are hanging in my wardrobe!

Or finally how about this maxi dress, which I've teamed with another gorgeous statement flat.  I've been tempted to get this dress in the navy &/or black for several years now & this season could just be the year I 'click that button'.

Back to today & I'm going with a classic smart look as unfortunately we have a family funeral to attend.

  1. Great picks and outfit ideas, I'm loving that slogan sweatshirt too ! As ever I'm on the hunt for animal print shoes, I tried the Boden ones but sadly not for me. Hope today goes as well as it can for you. Pia xx

    1. It's a gorgeous sweatshirt isn't it Pia - definitely one for further investigation ;-)
      Good luck with the hunt for some animal print shoes I'll keep a look out for any others that catch my eye & thank you for the well wishes for today.

  2. I love a slogan sweatshirt too....that one has really caught me eye Jane! Sorry to hear of your loss, I hope the day goes as well as it can xx

  3. Can I ask a question about Mon port as know you've been there many times? Do you recommend it? Any good recommendations for places to visit or eat? Were thinking of booking for 5 nights in half term ? Just my husband and I as my sons away with school sking. Your pictures there look beautiful!!! Thanks

    1. Hi Julie we absolutely love Mon Port, it's such a lovely hotel & the staff are all so friendly & helpful. We have never found any fault & I think it says a lot that so many people return each year.
      We've not been in February but I would imagine it would be a bit quieter than in the summer months, although when we visited in October it was still very busy with spa breaks etc. If you want to email me I'll happily suggest some places to visit & eat.
