I did a scissor job on some old chinos to make today's shorts. The chinos were in my charity bag as they were quite old fashioned wide-fit ones but that made them perfect for home-made shorts! Wore them on a trip to our closest National Trust site - Rowallane in Saintfield. Was amazing there - we practically had the place to ourselves! Love this photo of the kids watching dragonflies at the pond..
And here I am in my cut off chinos....
I don't think I've shown this much bare leg on a blog post to date - thank goodness for Sally Hansen!
Very much practicality over style today with the footwear as we were walking lots through (still muddy) woods and meadows. The blue vest top is an oldie from H&M layered over a Primark white vest.
And that was it - too hot for accessories.
Later today, I was so busy enjoying the tennis that I missed the update from Boden that their sale had started! Luckily, most of the UK had done likewise so I was able to get on 4 hours later and still see lots of stock available. Here's what's on my wish list...
|Colour Block Wallet - £14.90|
I have this stripy breton in the bright blue so I'm fancying it in the Peach and the Citrus too
|Stripy Breton in Peach - £20|
This Modern Woven Top is WAY nicer in real life - have seen it at two Boden parties. But I always felt it was overpriced at almost £50 AND it's not woven at all - it's silky in the front and jersey on the back. But it's much more appropriately priced now and I love the mix of colours in it. A great transitional top..
|Modern Woven Top in Marine Stripe|
I'm not a trainer fan at all but I would be willing to try these out as they are quite neat looking and with their coloured laces, not as obvious as white-laced versions. Worth a punt at just over £20
|Spotty Canvas Plimsolls (6 colours)|
I love how this jersey blazer has been styled and it's a fantastic option to brighten up a plain outfit without the formality of a structured blazer. A total bargain at just over £30..
|Summer Jersey Blazer|
Another great half price option here with the Colourpop Bag - the perfect fit it all in bag for a busy mum. It's available in three colours and is priced in the sale now from £24.50
|Colourpop Bag in Clementine/Navy|
The Boden Skinny Coloured Jeans are all reduced by 40% to £29.40. A great wardrobe staple..
|Skinny Jeans in Pacific|
This next top is much nicer in real life ... it was my favourite knitwear item at my party. Lovely in the cream if your colouring suits it. Also fantastic in the classic navy/white
|Sparkle Linen Cotton Top|
Finally, it's not the last item on my wishlist, it's just that this post has gotten long enough already and I don't want to bore you. But this jersey maxi dress is still a big favourite with me. Only 20% off so still out of my budget but I'm tempted..
|Jersey Maxi Dress in Hibiscus|
So what about you? If you're a Boden fan, what's your pick of the sale and what have you already bought?
