What do I spend my £10 Boden voucher on?? I need help and inspiration!

I've bought clothes for my DDs from Boden before, but never anything for myself. I've been sent a £10 voucher and I thought for once I'd put it towards something for myself. What should I get?

I'm hovering over the jeans... I quite like the grey skinny cords? Or maybe the teal ankle zip ones? I'm normally a size 10 (28" waist in jeans) and 5.2". My derrière is not as toned as I would ideally like it and I have chunky-ish thighs. Do you know if the Boden jeans are cut for somebody of my proportions?

Or, should I just play it safe and get a top? Any suggestions gratefully appreciated. As an idea to my style my favourite shops are Jigsaw, Gap and Anthropologie and my husband when he's a bad mood says my style is 'boring', when he's in a good mood he says its 'classic'.

Thank you in advance!

what about a scarf? also a 25% off code arrived this morning, have you got one?

The leggings are very good and not that expensive if you use them with a voucher.

The sequin belt is very nice

Can't help re the trousers as I'm too chunky to wear trousers !

I do buy quite a bit from them,

love the dotty scarfs currently on site
love the London print toiletry bag (bought for dear friend as part of xmas gift) & it is lovely

sequin belt looks fun

like the stripey hamptons t shirts

Sequin belt - now that is a very good idea! Not something my 'boring' self would have gone for, but now the idea is in my head...

Damn. It's not available sad.

I have the moss stitch scarf which is nice.

Is there a current 25% discount code?

charlotte top

for the katie homles style

Meggles76 the code is Q772

BeaLola, I'm wondering if you have dd's with the same names as mine!

I've gone for the moss stitch hat, and the skinny ankle zip jeans in the end. Couldn't justify another scarf or another stripy t-shirt.

Thank you all for the food for thought!

Belo - no DD only 1 fab DS !

Like the moss stitch scarf too. Keep hankering after that large patent bag - have yet to see one in real life - reviews that go on about it being too big put me off (slightly !).

Having DD envy on clothes front as love Boden girl & Monsoon girly things !

Meggles76 Wed 14-Nov-12 13:00:57

Thank you for the code.
I may be too late but I second the charlotte top. Have it in ivory and have worn lots.

This thread reminded me that I got a £10 voucher ages ago that I hadn't spent.

Dug it out, it expires today, so by using that and your code Belo I've a got a moss stitch hat on its way to me for just £4.25.

So, thanks for starting the thread and sharing the code, much appreciated.

Just hope I don't look a complete tool in it, not a hat wearer generally!
