I am blonde, short-ish and a size 10.
Would you say the brown, black ikat or purple colourway?

Thinking smart casual/lunch with girls etc.

Steering towards the brown as have a croppped cardi that would match.
or black with a grey cardi?

Purple is nice but maybe too smart option for every day?

It's alright. Not mumsy, just a bit...dull. Knowing Boden, it won't be an amazing quality material / tailoring. The prints are hideous.

Not worth the money, I personally think.

I have got 20% off in the preview to use when i return something, so am wondering what i will decide to buy 4 months later when no one else has anything I like, and I've lost the discount!

anyway- am happy to be persuaded not to buy.

It's OK. I prefer this in navy or brown.

I buy a fair bit from Boden but I avoid their prints as for some reason I think they def look a bit mumsy. The 6 foot tall models pull them off but I think they look frumpy on us mere mortals

Mumsy in the prints I'm afraid, imo. Prefer the block colours though they don't look as casual.
