"Surely you jest," the model said when I told her beautiful, flattering Boden items like the
are up to 40% off on sale. "No no," I assured her. "This is real, and really good!!"
Hello, Boden sale! One of my favorite stores of the moment, filled with flattering clothing for work and fun, has made fresh Spring markdowns taking items up to 40% off! Dresses, Shoes and more saw fresh cuts and my cart and wallet could not be more delighted!
Inside, some highlights from the new sale items.
The Lucinda Knited Dress (now $119) is perfect for the chilly days of Early Spring.
While some parts of the country emerge from winter chills directly into very warm days, New York City tends to be chilly well into mid-to-late April. So my Spring wardrobe is a mix of sweaters, pants and tanks and shorts for those warmer tease days.
With that in mind, here are some of the highlights from the Boden markdowns:
1 | The Wrap Dress (now $84 to $98) is a slimming, flattering and very wearable everyday dress. Perfect for work or play.
2 | I have never found a more perfect dress than the Ballet Back Ruched Dress (now $77 to $88) -- if it came in more colors I'd buy them all!! See it on me here. For me this dress was true to size.
3 | The Lottie Ruched Jersey Dress (now $105 to $135) is another great transitional dress! This one is more lightweight but very easy to layer with tights and a jacket. You can see how I do this today on my Instagram, and Friday here on the blog! I took my usual size in this dress.
4 | Looking for a good date dress? I love the Crossover Ruched Dress (now $77)! I have it in two colors and it's definitely a bit boobalicious so not work-appropriate, but fantastic for dates or special occasions. I recommend sizing up in this one -- it runs much smaller than most Boden dresses.
5 | You know how much I love the Martha Dress (now $105 to $135) -- and it looks pretty great on if I do say so myself! See the mimosa yellow/navy version on me here. I sized up in this dress for more room around my hips.
6 | The Tassel Wedge is a very cute warm-weather wedge that's all-day comfy.
7 | If you have narrow feet as I do, Boden's heels are wonderful! I own two colors of the Mid Heel Wave Court (now $74 to $101) and plan to get another color during this sale. I found them true to size.
8 | I also adore my Two Part Courts (now $105 to $153), which I own in the yellow that is a lovely, perfect, pastel yellow. The sizing reviews on these are all over the place. With my long, narrow feet I found a 40 (aka a 9 and my usual size) to work great.
9 | The Anna Mac (now $115) is such a lovely rain coat! See it on me here. I stuck with my true size 10, but I think if you have a straighter body shape you can go down a size easily.
10 | I still need to wear sweaters in early Spring, and the Relaxed Boyfriend Cashmere Sweater (now $119) comes in lots of pretty colors.
11 | The Brighton Biker Skinny Jean (now $72) is somehow ultraflattering whether you are curvy like me or lithe like my best friend. We both love them!! I took my usual size 10.
12 | I often wear my Brightons with the Phillipa Top (now $63 to $81)! The stripes down the back are so cute!! I took my true size in this one.
13 | The Riviera Skirt (now $75 to $88) is a lovely a-line midi with a pretty pattern. I especially love the Meadow Spring Maritime Floral.
14 | For work, it doesn't get much chicer and easier to pair than the Textured Modern Pencil Skirt to (now $88 to $100).
15 | I'm also a big fan of the fun, easy to wear Glitter Spot Breton (now $39)!
