Outfit post: Boden Sweatshirt

Earlier this month, Boden sent me a £15 voucher to spend on their current spring/summer range, which seemed like the perfect time to splurge on this stripy sweatshirt in classic navy and ivory, which has been on my wish list since my very first post back in January.



I have countless Breton tops as I am never able to resist them, but not a casual sweatshirt version, and this will be so perfect for chilly spring days and will definitely be coming on my two week holiday to France in August to wear in the evenings. It arrived last week and is so super soft and will be a timeless addition to my wardrobe. I will be living in it through the summer holidays as we are only couple of miles from the beach in Dorset, and it will be great to throw on when I need an extra layer.

For its first outing today, I have styled it with red cropped jeans, bought a couple of years ago from Topshop, a chambray shirt from Gap (current season), Boden ballet flats (current season), and my beloved Boden Mya leopard print bag.





What did you buy with your Boden voucher? Have you bought a new Breton/stripy top this year? If so, which one? As always, I love to hear from you!

    1. I like it with the mint jeans as well, but trying to stay away from coloured jeans this year as I overdid it last year!

    1. Lucky you! My husband had no voucher as he hates shopping, clothes, or even being near shops! X

  6. I have the same jumper & it's already been worn lots! Love your styling with the denim shirt & bright jeans. You can't beat Boden for stripy tops, they are always spot on & wear really well. x

  7. The entire outfit is superb. Love those jeans and how you styled them with chambray, stripes AND leopard. Brilliant. I really do like that breton, and have eyed that particular one and the blue version they have.

  10. Oh I love that outfit! Especially the breton sweatshirt...which I also dithered over. I ended up getting a long sleeved breton top with my voucher but I'm SO tempted by your sweatshirt as it does look amazing layered over denim x
