Sunny Stratford..

Nancy Dress: Boden // Heels: Irregular Choice
This time last week, Sarah and I fuelled up on fancy ice lollies and collected Roisin and headed for Stratford-upon-Avon for the day.

I think I pre-ordered this Boden Nancy dress approximately one million years ago. It certainly feels like that. I'd ordered it after featuring if on my Boden wishlist and it arrived back when summer weather was just a twinkle in the sun's eye, so after snapping some photos I popped it on the dress rail and promptly forgot about it. Until last weekend, when I decided enough was enough and it needed it's first wear. Although I'll never make it look as good as Amber or Rosie, I absolutely love it. If it's your cup of tea, be quick because it's reduced to £44.50 at the moment!

Anyway, I digress. I'd only visited Stratford once before, back in 2011 and I was pleased for another chance to have a wander around and see what it had to offer as it's such a lovely town. We headed for lunch in a rather lovely tea garden and then pottered about exploring the little shops. We all managed to do some fabric shopping and come home with some Liberty fabric on sale, and I may have come home with a Laura Ashley dress as well.

Thank you to Sarah for taking my photos and to Roisin for buying me an ice cream - love those girls!

  3. I've been thinking about this dress all week. It's absolutely gorgeous, but I've read such mixed reviews on the sizing (some saying all Boden stuff is short in the body, many saying the dress comes up big, a few saying it was a small fit), wondering if it'll fit me and if I should try the longer length, so I can wear it without fear of flashing when bare legged or will that be a frumpy length?

    1. Boden are definitely on the large side with their sizing. This dress is lovely though - I do really like it.
