This is the coat that will be getting me through January. And if you too think you might need one or two pick-me-ups, either pre or post Christmas, take a look at my Boden sales picks!
If you’re anything like me, this is the sort of coat that you look at and instantly fall in love with but then spend weeks or months humming and harring over. It is a bit of a statement but it’s beautiful. Boden has made this in the same impeccable cut as last year’s Sienna coat (which I wore incessantly) but it’s that bit more special with the addition of mohair and well, those checks – I’ve been wanting some in my wardrobe for ages. Not just neat, tidy office-style checks but big, bold almost seventies style ones like this.
Plus the combination of forest green and dark orange feels like the perfect way to add a bit of colour to grey December days. In fact I will be tackling the grimness of January with this coat like a sartorial two-fingered salute to the hardest month of the year. Are you with me? If so, you’ll be glad to know this coat is now half price in the Boden sale as are many more items! I’ve gathered together some of my favourite bargains, including pieces I’ve worn and loved myself, as well as a few other suggestions.
Think of it as an investment in your post-Christmas self!
