Feeling British in Boden

Bloomsbury bag: c/o Boden
Short Sleeve Breton tee: c/o Boden
Emilia biker jacket: c/o Boden
 Suede skirt: Chicabooti
Boots: Boohoo

Photography: my boyfriend

I feel like my wardrobe is so full of British brands (Missguided, Boohoo, ASOS and now Boden) that I might as well dress like a Brit! I find that often a British girl's fashion style is full of mixing prints, patterns and fun colours, yet still completely comfy and practical to accommodate for impending rain! This means chunky comfy Chelsea boots (which also originated from the 60s in Britain!), and I added slightly higher socks for added warmth. Little touches like contrasting suede and leather fabrics in this bag and skirt mean a simply put outfit can still be interesting and unique. Pops of bold primary colours and stripes were fun to mix together, and I definitely felt like it had some effect on brightening up a dull day!

This was my first time discovering Boden, an established British retailer that's been around since the 90s. They launched an Australian presence about a year ago and it's so exciting to add them to my list of regular haunts of British stores available to Australia. I was able to pick up some style basics (a striped tee, biker jacket, satchel bag) but they also offer a wide range of eclectic pieces and prints, staying true to that slightly quirky British element.


Kavi bracelet: c/o Chandrah

Recently I also received this lovely 'Kavi' bracelet from Chandrah, which was my first time wearing healing gemstones. It was so hard to pick just one bracelet from all their amazing collections, especially when all of them have beautiful different stones with different healing properties. I was however drawn to the 'Kavi' not just because of the gorgeous marble-like look of the howlite stones, but also the description on the website that howlite "is a stone of awareness. It can prepare the user or wearer to receive wisdom and attunement from the Higher Self and the Divine. It is a wonder stone for calming upset states of mind and emotion. Howlite decreases an overly critical state of mind, selfishness, stress, and anxiety, bringing calm and relaxation."

I'm not sure about everyone else, but I do consider myself quite a spiritual person (at least in development) so I don't take these things lightly, and on this particular day that I wore the bracelet for the first time I felt I was able to really maintain my calm and rational state of mind in certain situations. I'm not sure if that sounds ridiculous or fanciful, but I do feel like I believe in the power of healing stones :)

  2. You look fantastic Izzy! <3 Loving the color combo.
    And I think it's great that you're also into spirituality! I believe in the powers of healing gemstones as well but never really gotten to wear one. Instead I place them in the house. But maybe it's time for change. I'll definitely take a look into the brand Chandrah. :)

  9. I absolutely love this outfit on you! It's so fresh, classic and pretty! I feel like people always wear such dark, drab colors this time of year so this is certainly a breath of fresh air. Also, I totally believe in crystals and healing stones as well! Even if there's no scientific proof that they work, they make ME feel better while I have them ;) Great post and I hope your weekend was good!
