If you follow us on Instagram, you may have spotted a couple of weeks ago that we took part in Boden’s Hue Monday campaign (read their blog post here) which saw us embrace (literally) allllllll the colours in a bid to combat the year’s most dreary day. We took rather a lot of photos for the occasion and liked them so much we thought we would share them on here too.
Boden have got so many fabulous and colourful pieces for SS16 but we were both really keen to style some stripes, as they are going to be big news this season. Thankfully this fab multi coloured print was available in both a tunic style dress and a top so we took a visit to twin town and loved it so much we are probably going to move there! We were both a little nervous at first about stripes (in all shapes and sizes) but we are now well aboard this particular trend train. Expect to see us striping a pose in a twin town near you! Speaking of matchy matchy, how gorgeous is the Amanda bag? Phwoar. Some silver sparkles and a rose mac later and we were hot to trot! No blues in these hues!
Did you know that today is officially Blue Monday? No, don’t panic, this has nothing to do with Lee Ryan. Today is in fact the day of the year that we are believed to be at our most downright miserable, wailing uncontrollably as we fight the urge to just stay in bed all day. Heck, you might even be reading this from beneath your warm and comfy duvet….mmm so warm and comfy. Fear not though! We are here to improve your mood with a little help from Boden, who have kindly invited us to banish those pesky blues by taking on their #BloomMonday challenge. Thistle cheer you up!
Boden are nipping those January blues in the bud by embracing a veritable bouquet of floral prints and bold, bright colours. We love a bit of flower power and certainty felt a spring in our collective step as we embraced the cheerfulness of our outfits. It’s hard not to crack a smile when you’re dressed like sunshine! As it was an absolutely stunning day in Bristol yesterday, we decided to take a stroll in equally colourful (and err boat-anical) surroundings.
We hope our good thyme has inspired you to swap your actual bed for a flowerbed and those pjs for fun floral prints! We like to think we rose to the occasion….
