Spring Itch

This post would typically come a little bit later in the year...closer to spring.  But I have the itch to ditch my heavyweight coats for ones that look and feel more like these.  That, and I wanted to let you know about Boden's sale before it goes bu-buy.  Get 15% off plus Free Shipping and Returns on Boden's new Spring Line!

Boden is one of those retailers like J.Crew or Anthropologie that I salivate over their perfectly constructed, beautifully displayed items, but cannot typically afford.  I passed up a yellow trench coat at Old Navy just after the holidays, and when I went back for it a few days later...gone.  I keep telling myself that it must have been a dream and I need to get over it and move on with my life.  But then I spotted this one at Boden and it all comes flooding back to me.  I want a yellow trench coat (I need a khaki one).  I like the Boden one even better than Old Navy's, but will have to wait for the sake of my shopping budget.

Yeah, I agree... I can't wait for spring. This winter has been a bit ridiculous in terms of precipitation.

That lemon coat is so yummy...sadly I look weird in yellow colors ...bouhou...The leather vest is awesome too : I just need to convince my wallet I need a brown one when I already have a black one (yes I speak to my wallet and let me tell you : we disagree on a regular basis...) I don't want to speak about the white one : I have 2 kids with dirty boots and hands (not that I don't wash them properly but life is an eternal surprise...) so big no-no for me at the moment (unless having dirty little fingers and boot print on coats becomes fashionably acceptable,,,)

Love that tan leather coat and the yellow one! I am so excited for the day when I don't have to wear the same black puffy coat every day!

I love Boden, and wish I could afford to but from there more often.

Great finds! I saved up for years (not exaggerating) and bought myself a banana republic one, and I will say, it was worth the price because I wear it again and again and get many compliments!

omg i adore boden!
i wish they had us stores because i can never get the sizes right.
their colors are to die for and i have to say many of the catalog pages make it to my inspiration board.
