Personally I had never shopped at Boden before they asked me to become an ambassador late last year. I had bought items in the past for my kids, but never for me. I particularly loved Baby Boden when Georgie was born, as they have such beautiful outfits for little girls but I never really thought to look for me.
I had always assumed that their women’s clothing was a little old for me and not in the style that I would normally choose. So when I had a good look on their website, I soon realised how wrong I had been.
Falling in love with Boden pieces
Each month I’m gifted some clothing to style in my usual way. To be given some credit each month to choose pretty much what I like, has been quite simply amazing! Having got out of the habit of treating myself to well made, more expensive clothing, this was a real treat indeed.
When I first started working with Boden in November last year, I wrote a seasonal round up post on my very first order. The buttermilk yellow cashmere jumper is still my favourite item to date.

Every month I’m given a list of key pieces they’d like featured, but they are also pretty happy for me to order what suits me and what I think will work best for my style and existing wardrobe.
It’s made me think more carefully about what to choose and to think about items that can be added to my capsule wardrobe – real investment items rather than fast fashion.
Here are just some of my choices…
I don’t tend to wear a lot of leopard print but I do love to accessorise with it. I don’t feel that it’s my style for clothing but shoes and bags are definitely an area that help me to inject some animal prints.
White and tan leopard trainers and mid vintage Mayfair skinny jeans
I’ve also enjoyed ordering some pieces that I wouldn’t normally choose but all the same are items of clothing that I will find really useful and versatile to wear. This dress is really easy to throw on and can be dressed up or down.
Navy pink lips Penelope dress
What has been equally as lovely, is the fact that I’ve been able to select some clothing for my children too.
Navy borg-lined zip up hoodies and pop raglan t-shirts
The boys live in hoodies, so these were a natural choice for them. They’re really well made as you’d expect and are super warm. They will always try and leave the house without coats but they’re more than happy to throw on these hoodies. I get them new hoodies all the time and these are by far the nicest and they wash really well too.
We love a raglan sleeve top and these make a statement. The long sleeves will see them through until springtime.
I simply couldn’t resist the novelty factor of this fur jacket for my little girl and it’s been perfect during the colder months.
It also features a beautiful floral lining that is instantly recognisable as Boden.
Cosy Teddy Hoodie
This jersey dress is classic in navy but has some rainbow stripes on the sleeves to give it a little more detail.
Stripey Jersey Dress
I’ll be posting our new outfits over the coming months and will look forward to sharing pieces from each season.
Nb. All items have been gifted to me as part of my role as a Boden ambassador. Everything we wear has been chosen by myself and our views are completely our own.
