Boden: Autumn Heroes

Well. if there was any doubt that Summer is now but a distant, beautiful, memory, the cold mornings and the biting wind and rain have been enough to show us that Autumn is here and that Winter is not far away. There have even been reports that we will have snow as early as next Month, as we face a very cold Winter. So what better way to cheer ourselves up and embrace the new season but through fashion?

Boden have been releasing new pieces over the past couple of weeks that deserve the title ‘Autumn Heroes’. These are pieces that keep you looking stylish in the cool temperatures, but are also practical enough to wear for all those everyday events, from work to the school run or a supermarket dash.  There are basic pieces, but they have the famous ‘Boden’ touches, from dotted cuffs on denim shirts, to the hottest of bright colours ready to enliven dark winter days.

The Denim Shirt £39.00 

Worn with skinny jeans £49. Click here for details.

Wool Skater Dress WQ068 £139.00 

There is still an early 1960s feel to Boden. The military styled coat has a Julie Christie styling to it, whilst the knitted jumpers look as though they were made to be worn with a three strand set of pearls, unless, of course, they have their own stunning embellishment.

Military Moleskin Coat WE403 £119.00 

CHELSEA JUMPER Price: £89.00 


Ponte Roma Trouser WM346 


Bistro Crop Trouser WM329

Finish your stylish looks with a sensible pair of shoes. But be warned, sensible never looked so good! Have you ever seen anything so pretty as the eggshell blue brogues?

Chic Ankle Boot AZ17

Brogue AR589 £109.00 

Boden’s Autumn heroes almost make it worth suffering the wind, rain and cold.


Designers at Debenhams – going from Strength to Strength

It’s latest advert boasts of ‘The unrivaled collection of Designers at Debenhams’ and,  seeing the new ranges, and how more and more designers are producing collections for the brand, the claim really is hard to beat. Debenhams continues to be a shopping destination par excellence, the place where you can truly find an outfit for all occasions, and the new collections are simply too hard to resist.

Debenhams is a destination for all ages and caters for so many different style. H! By Henry Holland is young, fun and has a slightly edgy feel, whilst Betty Jackson Black produces the sort of sophisticated work wear  that appeals to professional women. Jenny Packham evening gowns offer red carpet glamour without the red carpet price, whilst we have elements of the bohemian in Matthew Williamson Butterfly. And that is just the tip of the ocean, with a name-call that highlights the brightest and the best of British fashion, including the Editions designers Preen and Jonathan Saunders.

There are just so many fabulous pieces from the Designers this season that I decided to create my own Fashion-Mommy edit picking out some of my favourite things, a lust-list for the new season.

Take a look and let me know what’s on your shopping list for Autumn/Winter 2013.
