First up the Kaftan. Been on the wishlist for a while. Sized up due to the reviews and quite rightly so, my actual size would have been too tight on the bust I'm sure.
Love how it isn't sheer like a lot of Kaftans I've have in the past, which means if you are staying in a hotel you can't wear them down for breakfast so have to change, yet again. Not a problem I normally have as we usually stay in an apartment, but I will be B&B in a hotel for my daughters hen do.
Choosing a colour was the main difficulty here and do I want more of these in different colours? The answer is a resounding "yes" as these will last you years.
Next up the short sleeved Breton. Yes you all know my love of stripes knows no bounds but I was seriously lacking in the short sleeved department owning just an old Juicy Couture one which is still going strong but has a v neck. This top featured in my very first Boden wishlist of the season, as I knew it would be a summer staple and so cheap with the discount.
The shorts. Well what can I say about these. I don't think I'm a fan. Bought my normal size which were fine but it's the leg length. Now don't get me wrong I think it's great that Boden offering different lengths but the difference between a 4 inch and a 9 inch inside leg means one pair is young and flirty and the longer, bordering on frumpy! Come on Johnnie we need something in between! This kind of length is fine in a smart city short you might be wearing to the office in the summer but on a casual chino, er no, but you must bear in mind I am only 5ft 2 1/2 (don't forget the half, it is v.important). Not sure it's worth the cost of a seamstress to get them just right and they are bright, very very bright and I am not sure I care to draw that much attention to myself. I would class these as vermillion in the shades of red colour spectrum and would probably prefer a more muted tone but who knows what I will decide on, I've had them for days and still can't make my mind up!
They certainly look better rolled up a couple of times like in the picture above and with brown legs, might look quite nice!
These three pieces cost me somewhere in the region of £80 with free delivery and free returns. There were discounts on the website on certain items and I had a code which appeared to stack. Gotta love a stacking code!

The only downside of my order was the swimming costumes I wanted are on a delay and won't be in stock before I go away. Bit of a pain being as I have sold everything in my holiday drawer on eBay to fund new purchases, so the hunt for a cossie continues!
