Boden launch new season brights

When the days are short and dark, and sunshine seems in short supply, it is always heart-warming to think that we have already had the shortest day, so Spring and blue skies must be somewhere around the corner. One of the ways that we can start to lean towards Spring is when the stores and brands start to introduce the new season ranges, and when those ranges are bright and pretty, they go some way to lightening those dark days.

Boden have this week started to introduce their first, new season picks. Like in previous seasons, the range is high on colour, with both pastels and primary shades well represented. There is also the 1950s/1960s influences that have also been something that Boden has relied quite heavily on over the last couple of seasons, always to good effect. Many of the pieces in the range are quite easy to slot into your current wardrobe. You can wear the pretty floral dresses with a cardigan or jumper over the top, and with opaque tights, Zooey Deschanel style. The pastel knits will be a great way to brighten up dull Winter days, whilst the tunic dresses can be worn layered over leggings.

My favourite picks from the first releases include the Alice High Heels, which are, quite frankly, amazing, and the Sylvia dress, a pretty prom style with a floral print that looks just gorgeous worn with the Fifties cardigan.

What do you think of the first pieces of Boden Spring/Summer 2015?

Clothing at Tesco brings a touch of Brazil

Last November I was lucky enough to be invited to the Clothing at Tesco press day, and even though I was feeling very ill that day, actually sleeping on the train all the way to London, I knew that this was one preview event I really didn’t want to miss.

The theme was linked to the World Cup in Brazil, which will dominate Summer 2014 for at least half the population. So we got lots of bright colours, citrus, neon and primary shades that just popped and dazzled so beautifully I was instantly in love. We also got beachy vibes in ethnic print maxi dresses and skirts, playfully teamed with bikini tops and thin glitter knits, and some sandals that will be finding a place in your holiday suitcase come the summer months.

But it was not all about Brazil – despite the theme. I was enchanted by the ladylike, elegant Jackie Kennedy dresses and boxy jackets in pretty coral and pink shades. And there were plenty of accessories to help you transform your current wardrobe without spending a fortune.

This was a really lovely collection, and I also got to meet TV presenter and actress Lizzie Cundy, who just looked so beautiful, and was also really lovely too.
