I’ve been back from holiday a week now (although it might as well be a month!), and felt like sharing my recent Autumn Boden haul for Tabitha and Marlow (we’ll get to mine another day). Many of these things had been mentally logged from the Boden press day, back in May and these adorable Mary Jane shoes were top of my list for Tabitha. They are just so perfect. I love them! They look really expensive – everything about the design of these is totally spot-on. I also bought her (and one for Marlow too) this fisherman’s raincoat (it’s also great as it starts from baby sizes), this cardigan (I bought pink (it’s a good pink) this time, but I know I will be ordering a least one other colour soon enough), and this floral print onesie for bed. A slightly random mix of pieces I know, but I love them all, and so does Tabs. For Marlow I snapped up these boots (in grey), this sweatshirt, this zip-up sweatshirt (in grey) for those in-between Autumn and Winter days, and this hoodie. So not much variation there I know, but I also know he will wear them all on rotation through the Winter months. I definitely have my eye on various other pieces for both of them, and the new baby collection is just too cute for words (even more so than usual). Don’t worry, we’ll be sharing our favourites with you soon.
ps: whilst we’re talking Boden, I was on a shoot on Friday, and the art director was wearing this denim jumpsuit (which looked amazing on her – everyone was asking where it was from). And not only did it look good, it was so lovely and soft too. Now the original price was pretty steep for Boden (I think it was £170.00 from memory?), so even though I liked it, I never bought it. But now it’s been reduced to a guilt-free £39.80! Such a great bargain. The makeup artist on the shoot ordered one online then and there! And I think I may well be next… Oh, and size up for a slouchier (cooler) fit.
pps: I know quite a few people who have been struggling to buy swimwear for little ones for August holidays, as most places have now sold out. This Boden striped, frilled swimsuit that we featured a while ago is still available in quite a few sizes. And I just snapped up these and these for Marlow last week. He had literally worn his old ones out on holiday. Turns out that natural spring pools are the not the best for one’s swimwear..
