Spring has finally sprung around here…or it did for a few days anyway! After such a long, cold winter, we were anxious to get outside to feel the sunshine, and burn off some energy. I rounded up the family, threw together a quick picnic, and we headed to our favorite park.
We don’t typically dress so cute for outings like this, but I recently discovered Boden and Mini Boden, and couldn’t resist all the bright colors and patterns. They just scream SPRING to me, and this is such a fun way to show them off!
I created an impromptu picnic by lining a basket with bright fabric, and filling it with fun drinks, sandwiches, fruit and cookies. And of course paper straws, because every drink is more festive with a stripey-straw!
Have you tried the San Pellegrino Limonata? So tart and refreshing…and who can resist those little bottles? I found it here.
You know I don’t shy away from pattern mixing, but this is my first time pairing stripes with stripes…and I love the look! The key is having a common color, and opposite scales. Of course the denim jacket made another appearance…are you convinced of it’s staple status, yet?!
Boden is a UK company, and I’m thrilled to help bring their styles to America. The quality is impeccable, and you won’t even believe how cute everything is! They use European sizing, but my typical US size fits perfectly. The quality is such that I’ll keep these pieces for years.
It was a great afternoon, celebrating spring! Do you have any outings planned? How are you celebrating spring? Have you ever seen cuter clothes (or faces) than these?!?
