The Boden Purchases

The lovely Frances had recommended this red breton from Boden on her blog - who am I to pass up on a breton?!?!  Oh and I actually didn't have a red one so needs must.  I like buying when somethings been tried and tested by someone, especially when it comes to classics like this.  It was £18.75 when they had a sale on.  It's been worn twice already and is a lovely soft cotton.  It does come up large but I didn't want anything too tight.

Whilst looking at the breton I spotted this merino jumper in the sale down to £17.70 - wow!  Merino is a thin wool so perfect for now and as I had returned a previous one from a different store due to shrinkage, I was on the look out for a replacement.  It's very similar to the J.Crew Tippi style which I had bought in the cream and white last year but they were so see through they went back.  The sleeves are three quarter length which I love, it's true to size and the perfect shade of grey (well, apart from Christian's grey of course....).  It's still available in a 6, 10 and 12.


It was late, I was tired, you know I'm not one for good photos (but I over compensate with sharing good shopping buys right???!!) but honestly there is nothing wrong with my lips - just a dirty camera on my phone, oops!

  3. That red is a lovely shade on you! I confess to ordering these too, but they had to go back as I didn't realise how creamy the background would be. Shame, as I love Boden Bretons. The search continues for me! Oh, and I totally sympathise on the bad photo front, I was quite ashamed of some of mine this week :-D xx

    1. Oh no! Yes, it is creamy - which I love. I think I am just going to have to accept I'm not one of these clever ones with a camera (and you should see the out takes from the ones where I'm not having to take a picture myself.....) x
