Charming, irreverent and not bound to trends.
All the kinds of things I’d love to lay claim to being (although who knows how charming I am after a long night on ‘mum duty’ and I for sure rocked a disc belt in the early 2000s so the jury’s out).
These are, however, the hallmarks of Boden, the clothing brand bringing classic British style into Australia.
Sure, we might have opposing seasons and slightly more beach dunes than Highland escapes but what definitely have in common with our British buds is a fervent love of stylish threads that work hard for your dollar, seamlessly going from day to night, with a little quirk to them in the process.
It’s something that’s become more and more important to me as I’ve hit my 30s and find myself juggling work, social and family (sometimes all at once).
Prints That Make You Feel Good
Christmas in Australia is all about sunshine, good vibes and seeing friends. Having a dress that can hold its own in the heat and at multiple events? Well that’s a non-negotiable for me.
Wearing // BODEN Alba Midi Dress
I love this print because it incorporates the colour of the season, mustard yellow, but with navy which is easily matched with a pair of heels… Or no shoes at all.
Colour That Pops
While our British friends have sleet and slow to contend with, down under the worst thing that can happen on Christmas Day is a spot of rain. And it’s been known to happen more often than not!
I love this super comfy cashmere pullover, paired with jeans. The pink just puts me in a great mood and it’s warm enough to handle the elements but not too OTT.
Wearing // BODEN Helena Jumper
Classics You Can Count On
Is there anyone out there who DOESN’T love a good suit?
They’re timeless. I love the wide sleeves and low slung buttons, which kind of adds an update to the look and a point of difference. Or you can pair it with these leopard loafers to take things up a notch further.

& A Little Quirky Humour
No words needed. If you can’t get behind an ironic Christmas jumper, we can’t be friends anymore.
