Hello Happiness possible–I hope you enjoy this latest collaboration**
It’s officially here… put on the happiest playlist, jam out with the windows down, get that beloved bathing suit on and get set because it’s SUMMER my friends!!!! The girls wrapped up school yesterday and so we hit the ground running to make the most of the two months of vacation time we have off together, which might have already included a water balloon fight and ice cream sundae treats.
This summer, we plan to do all the things as a family, creating the best memories + moments, while dressed to impress with our favorites from Boden. For babies, boys, girls, men, women and more, Boden has looks to style the entire family for vacations, everyday play, and beyond.
Even better, this weekend is their sitewide 30% off Memorial Day Sale [use code C7R2 at checkout], so we are here to show you all kinds of looks to get your summer closet in tip top shape!
Summer Bucket List with Boden
Boden has always been a trusted go-to shopping source for us, especially because of the colorful options and ensembles you won’t find anywhere else. I absolutely LOVE that they showcase capsule collections so you can all get coordinating styles for the entire family. Boden also offers petite, regular and extended sizing so everyone can shop their website, knowing they will find superior-made styles that are on-trend, even better in person, with details that make every ensemble special and unique.
For the kids, their lineup is especially one of my girls’ favorite destinations to shop — Carson is still a dress girl for most days, so this Embroidered Sundress [on sale for just $31] was added to our cart immediately! The detailed design is soft, sweet and of course it’s finished with side pockets and delicate trim that make is even more adorable for my little kindergarten graduate. And under $50, it makes a versatile summer essential she can wear all day everyday.
Caroline knows what she loves and when she found this Tassel Culotte Jumpsuit [a steal for $36], it had to be hers! Dressy with fabulous details, it is appropriate for school days, but special for summertime soirees, too. It also features a drawstring waist, and the cotton fabric makes it an easy breezy find for warm days. Bonus is that it is featured in her elementary school colors so it makes it even more special–this will most certainly be in heavy rotation when she goes onto second grade in the fall [cue the mom tears now].
For me, it’s all about mix and match separates for summer… things I can dress up or down, are casual and comfortable, but still filled with fun and color! This Bonjour Tee makes for an easy breeze everyday top with colorful hello’s in a rainbow of happy hues. It has a slightly boxy fit with cap sleeves and comes in a few fun graphic and all-over print options, too.
As for my Striped Paperbag Shorts, [regularly $70, this weekend only $49] I can’t get enough of this short silhouette for summer… they are made of lightweight linen and cotton, so they make for a great basic bottom, but they pack a punch with so many color options AND inseam lengths as well [I’m wearing the 4″ for reference]. The self tie waist and side pockets are two of my favorite details and they are fitted through the waist, too… feminine style from Boden at its best–check out more of their shorts lineup here.
When it comes to sundresses, the girls were over the moon excited for their Festival Pink Star Maxi Dresses [grab them now for $46 each]. Look out summer, here we come… this happy-go-lucky full length find is all about feeling good with an all over sweet star print and lightweight material–so soft they don’t want to take it off! Twirling is in their future with this pretty pink number that has vacation written all over it. I love the delicate lace accent and trim and it also comes in a cute pineapple print for those of you looking for the utmost in southern hospitality!
Cute the confetti! My Confetti Button Up Blouse [a major markdown for under $60] Paperbag Shorts in Red Pop have me ready for summer holidays… this classic linen shirt has an all over sprinkle design in hues of pink, red and turquoise–bright colors for me please. This cuteness comes in 10 colors so you’re sure to find one [or two] that must get added to your cart immediately. A few of the styles come in petite and long sizing options as well, which I love… so many options to pair with your favorite bottoms for summer style at its best.
Now let’s talk summertime adventure! We always LOVE to come up with own summer bucket list to tackle, so we sat down during dinner the other night to jot down a few must-do’s and things we want to be sure to cross off as a family… looking for some inspiration?? Check out our Summer Bucket List below:
Of course we will be styled to the nines in all our favorites and new arrivals from Boden. Their Women’s Swimwear and coordinating styles for Girls have me itching for more mommy and me coordination for the lake and pool days, and with two family weddings this summer, the Occasionwear for Caroline and Carson and Women have us ready to party big time.
