The Arrival of the Leopard Print Boden Mya Bag!

Now some of you may remember one of my very first posts in January where I made a wish list of what I would like from Boden's new spring range - see blog post here

Top of the list was the Mya bag in leopard print. I ordered it straight away and unusually for Boden I had to wait over a month for it, but it was so so worth the wait! It arrived yesterday, and is beyond my expectations!

I have wanted a leopard print handbag for forever, but have been holding out for the perfect style and this is it! I absolutely love the print, particularly when it comes to accessories, and I love the mix of animal print with Breton stripes, camouflage, or floral fabrics. Leopard prints never date and I can't wait to wear this bag with an all black outfit as well as mixing it up with different prints and textures.

The size of this bag is exactly what I wanted - it has great pocket details both inside and out and is neat and compact looking, but still has plenty of space for my many bits and bobs. I love the bright contrast of the electric blue lining and the long strap means it can be worn cross body or on the shoulder. 

This bag is just gorgeous and will be getting lots of use! 

I had to start using it immediately, and wore it to go to a meeting and teamed it with Breton stripes and my new military jacket for a casual daytime look:



Vintage military jacket - True Religion SS14
Breton stripe knit - French Connection (old)
Grey and yellow scarf - Yard
Boyfriend vintage jeans - Karen Millen
New Balance trainers
Boden Mya Bag


Even better, this bag currently has 20% off and is done to £88 on the Boden website with free delivery. I am now obsessing about it in the gold colourway!

    1. Hmmm, I did wonder too much pattern, but hopefully it works. What about leopard with floral print - too much? X

  6. I love those new balance trainers. I just don't know if they are too far out if my comfort zone. They look great with your vintage boyfriend jeans
