Outfit post: Boden kilt

Jumper: Uniqlo mens. Skirt: Boden. Bag: Zara. Shoes: Sophia Webster.
Kilts are big news. All over the A/W runways - my favourite is of course the Margaret Howell one, but the High Street have done great versions, too. It's all about the side detail, the pleats and the length. This Boden version is not pleated, but I love the colour of the check against a charcoal. It's fully lined so no wool itchiness either.

My shoes are my Sophia Webster ones I bought for the evening of my wedding. As they're flat, I can wear them all year round. They look great with a sweater and loose-cut jeans rolled up, too.

The sweater is actually my husband's and is a size Medium. I wore it so much he just ended up giving it to me! A mens's jumper often just hangs a bit better than a womens cut - and oversized is currently the way to wear them to fit in with the grunge aesthetic.

Boden is really having a moment right now, I am loving almost everything on the site (and I promised I am not being paid to write this!). Here are my current loves:

Sixties slingbacks in leopard, £99, Boden
Spotty jumper, £69, Boden
Leather envelope bag, £69, Boden
Chevron jumper, £79, Boden
Wool scarf, £29, Boden


  1. There are a lot of things catching my eye at Boden at the moment! Love their polka dot things.

    There's 15% off at vouchercodes.co.uk this week. I think you enter W007 at the checkout. Tempting...


  2. I finally ordered the spot jumper today, can't wait to get it and there is loads of other stuff I love this season, as you say they are really having a moment x

  3. Loved this oufit, i have been on the hunt for a nice little kilt skirt for a little while, i dont know why i never thought to check on Boden. Since seeing this, i have the kilt in my basket and toying with the BEAUTIFUL metallic brogues……..I am holding you responsible ;) xxxx

  4. Love the outfit and the mix of patterns in your skirt and shoes!! I also really like your husband's sweater. It drapes really nicely. Might need to snag a guy's sweater and test it out.

    Absolutely love your blog. I discovered it yesterday through WIT and went a little crazy going through the archives.

  5. Love the Boden skirt on you & how you've styled it, I'm trying so hard to resist ordering at the moment but its difficult as Boden have some amazing things in stock x
