The Boden spring catalog has arrived and summer fantasizing has officially begun in earnest. Like the Mini Boden catalog, which arrives with darling boy/girl/baby clothes, the grown-up version is best savored a few times over, with folded down corners marking favorites. And so, as January days pass, I’m picturing myself in warm summer weather in things like this:
I think that one would be perfect for the Vineyard. And work. And everything in between.
Now, shoes — I love these. They’re a little mod and a lot of fun. I think silver…but also drawn to eye-popping yellow or the excellent coral:
I love the bold graphic print of this shirt, and the perfect waist length. 100% cotton is right down my alley. I think I’d choose pink over blue.
The Amalfi dress has a great vintage vibe. Definitely one I’d have to see on but just from the pic in the catalog, I’m imagining my hair pulled back and sunglasses on, wandering through the West Tisbury farmer’s market (okay this is a fantasy — who would really shop in this? the reality is filled with wild children playing in the dust while I’m imploring them to get up) with a great straw bag filled with dinner plate dahlias and organic vegetables (mais oui!):
Well, you get the idea.
As I crank up the heat in the house, I keep repeating this mantra: summer is coming, summer is coming…
