Summer in the name of maxis

Another maxi who would have thought? ;) Its been one HOT summer beating all previous records. Never ever have we had so many days with 30 C, its like living in southern Europe I imagine. :) Even worse cause we are not used to this heat up north and swealtering away. :) Surely this weather calls for a maxi! :)

This maxi is from Boden (surprise!), the summer collection 2013. I bought it last year when I was heavily pregnant so this is the first time Im wearing it. Instant love!

Well I reckon my collection of Boden maxis will continue to grow, they are just perfect in every way. :) Im wearing a UK 8L and the length is super! :) A maxi is the perfect summer wear I think. :)

What Im wearing:

Maxi dress from Boden (SS 2013)
Sandals from Fly London

I  have to tell you my little pumpkin just turned 1 year  two weeks ago. :) I still remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. Funny that. ;)

Love you to the moon and back little sunshine! :) <3 <3 <3

Bodenista - maxi dress

Surprise, surprise, another Boden review coming up. :) This beauty (meaning the maxi dress) is called the Maya maxi dress and totally lovable. I wore it for the first time this weekend in very hot weather (30 C) and I felt like I had nothing on, talking of comfortable or what? :)

This is my second maxi dress from Boden and Im really pleased with it. :) Im wearing an UK size 8L (long) and its just the perfect length on me being 5"7. I chose to wear it with a tank top for modesty reasons, its quite low cut as you can see.

Its a bargain to be had, 60 % off these days. :) And it goes without saying that I luuve the colours and pattern, again. ;) hehehehee. No Im not on Bodens payroll or anything, I just cant shut up about how wonderful the Boden clothes are. :)

Outfit details:

Tank top from H&M
Sandals from Fly London (old)

Nancy Drew

Hello ladies! Enjoying summer are you? :) Im enjoying summer and a Boden sale. ;) I was finally able to wear this dress from Boden a few days ago, its been lurking in my wardrobe for months as I preordered it from the early SS collection.
I found it appropriate to show it to you as Boden is having their end of season sale these days. So if any of you are in two minds about this dress, go for it! You wont regret it, promise! :)  Last time I checked the sale pages at the UK site there were plenty of dresses left, seems like Boden has an endless stock of this beauty despite it being hyped quite a lot. 50 % off you cant beat that! :)

Boden has named this dress Nancy which makes me think of Nancy Drew. ;) I was a huge fan of the Nancy Drew books when I was a litlle girl, I think I have read them all. :) The stories are all set in the US somewhere in the 1940s-50s which are quite on par with this dress I think. :) I imagine Nancy would have  looked stunning in this dress. :) Such a beautiful vintage print!

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind. Uhm I dont know about that but it sure was windy this day, look how the skirt suddenly turned poofy. :) Love it! :) Im wearing my usual Boden size, an UK8L and it fits beautifully. :) Actually Im planning on wearing this dress to my mothers 60th birthday coming up this Saturday. :) I think she will love it too. :)

Backdrop, the view from my porch. As you might see Im enjoying life in the countryside. :) If you want to have another look at miss Nancy do pop by my dear blog friend Dina who is a very dedicated Boden fan. :) She writes the most thorough reviews as well, love them! :)
Oh and I received the most amazing maxi dress from Boden today, the Maya Maxi. Coming up in a later post so stay tuned! :)
