Win £500 to spend on spring fashion at Boden

A couple of weeks ago, when spring actually peeped out from behind a big, fat snow cloud and pinky-promised it would be along soon, I did a bit of styling for a project with Boden and Stylist magazine around spring staples…

I was asked to choose a classic wardrobe must-have for spring from this season’s range of Boden Tops: I plumped for the stripy Breton top in spearmint and white and, me being me, decided to style it up with a print pencil skirt from Kelly Love’s SS13 collection.

I do love matching a casual top with a posh skirt

With the sun out, I could almost imagine wearing this get-up to an early spring bbq, or to a lovely pub lunch outside by the river…it will happen honest!

I accessorised the top with a headband from Topshop, worn as a necklace

And I had to trot my trademark Kurt Geiger heels out again…

…and turquoise jewellery to round off the look

And when spring finally does descend, I was pleasantly surprised by the selection of women’s tops on offer at Boden, including the funky one I went for.

You can see me (and the other four bloggers involved in the new season staples project) over at Stylist Online right now – and if you like what you see, you’ll have the chance to win £500 to spend on spring treats too – woo hoo!

There was just time left to prove how versatile the top is (and that I actually own a pair of jeans, even if they are pale teal)

I love the green tones with the mushroom bag (Edina Ronay @ TK Maxx) and Kurt Geiger mirror heels
