The Find: My Favorite Spot for Summer Dresses

May 20, 2021

As a fashion blogger, I’m not supposed to play favorites.  I’m supposed to treat all the retailers I love equally.  But when it comes to summer dresses, there is one retailer that stands above the rest: Boden.

Boden is my number one source for jersey dresses that you can wear to work and wear on the weekend.  They make wonderful jersey dresses and cotton dresses.  Their dresses typically have sleeves, which is fabulous.  The dresses also come in fun colors and prints.  Here are a few of my favorites from their most recent collection.

If you like striped dresses or striped tops, Boden is your spot.  This Breton dress with puffed sleeves is an excellent example (also in navy).  This short sleeve dress in red or navy is also worth a look.

I love this Nellie dress.  The stretch jersey is super comfortable, and the flippy skirt is a fun, breezy look.  Lots of fun prints on this one, but this red hibiscus is my favorite.

Also, if you’re looking for a pretty, floral dress that is too comfortable for words, this Veronica dress is worth a look.  It is impossibly relaxed and utterly gorgeous in person.  It looks like something you’d wear to sip chardonnay poolside in Carmel in 1964.

    I’m going to Dartmouth for grad school in the fall–might need to snag that green dress!

    LOVE BODEN FOR SUMMER DRESSES TOO. THE AMELIA JERSEY DRESS IS GREAT FOR CASUAL AND WORK. LAST YEAR I ORDERED 2 EFFIE DRESSES FOR STAY AT HOME, SO COMFORTABLE AND COOL FOR SITTING OUTSIDE. I MIGHT NEED THE NELLIE DRESS TOO—ONE THING I LOVE ABOUT THESE DRESSES POCKETS!

    One pro-tip with Boden dresses — If you know your size, I’ve had a TON of luck getting really nice Boden dresses off of Poshmark. I bought three this Spring to be my summer staples and I get endless compliments and scored most of them for less than $50.

    You introduced me to Boden years ago; I’m wearing a jersey maxi from there now! It’s been a lifesaver for my quarantine fifteen.

    FYI I tried on that GORGEOUS Veronica dress – if you’re in between sizes, size up as there’s no stretch.

    They also have great one-piece swimsuits!

Too Many Tabs: April 19, 2024

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: My Best Workout Shorts

For eight years, I have worn the same workout shorts. Every year, an influencer tries to sell me new shorts. I order them. I try them on. They pale in comparison to the shorts I already own. I return them.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
