A Bit of Boden. New Season News And Clearance Bargains Purchased


With Boden offering 20% off of selected items every few days this week, I thought I would treat myself to something for spring and tick the first thing off of my Boden new season wishlist.
Sadly it wasn't to be, as the top I planned on purchasing (above) had a six week wait list in my size (do you think they make the small sizes first and work their way up to the big sizes?). So annoying. I remember this happening with a Breton top I purchased a couple of years back, by the time it arrived I completely forgot I had ordered it in the first place, so I decided not to bother. When I order something, it means I want it now, not mid March.


I did however order a couple of Boden sale pieces after Christmas with some credit I had but never got round to doing a sales post.  First up is the Montpelier top which comes in various colour ways but I opted for navy, always chic and there is a serious lack of it in my wardrobe. At just £14.70 it will be a winner come spring and summer and I love a top you can just throw on and that works with jeans and flats for day or jeans and heels for evening.

Montpelier Top from £14.70.

The other top I ordered was the Paris blouse.  Another bargain buy that has already been worn out during the day to meet up with friends for lunch.



I thought this came up really generous and could of sized down but couldn't be bothered to send it back. Plus I can't stand it when the buttons pull across the bust which blouses and shirts often seem to, even when you think they fit perfectly.


This bow fronted blouse had been on my want list but I can only think it wasn't reduced enough at the time it is now however massively reduced as it was £69 and now only £20.70.


I also really like it in navy. It's a toughie!

The current Boden promotion is 20% off coats and knitwear until midnight tonight. Shop here

Don't forget if you are joining Avril in her Frugal February Challenge you only have today to get shopping, so get those online orders in, there are still some amazing bargains around as well as new season loveliness and who doesn't need a little retail therapy after putting up with the wettest January since time began?

  2. Love your new tops Sharron & agree with you they're just perfect for dressing up or down. Such a shame the jumper has a 6 week wait. I'm like you & hate waiting, I can just about cope with a couple of weeks but any longer & I'm not happy lol! Jane xx

  7. Yep! With you entirely on the bigger size issue. And also agree that when you want it, you want it right away, in a month or so time you've seen something else. Love the navy and white top though, that is seriously cute.

  12. I love the Breton - sometimes it is far quicker than their worse case scenario - might be worth a punt? I'm on Frugal Feb too - ordered everything very quickly on Friday:) Now just have to save the pennies for our meet up on the 1st - still hoping you will be there!! xx

    1. I'd rather be thin with thin hair than fat with fat hair! That's the problem we can't have it all which is so not fair! I want to be thin again with lovely hair!

  15. The Monpelier top will be ideal for spring. You can't really go wrong with navy and white. Always versatile and fresh looking too.

  16. Lol - I've bought all those items in the sale so far. Wishing I got the spotty top in spotty pattern - the cream was v disappointing so I didn't think to re-order in a different colour. So now you start tempting me whenever we're only 3 days into Frugal Feb!! haha...thanks for joining in and for linking up. 25 days to go! x
