Simon & Sebastian for Boden + a $100 giveaway

17 January 2014

shirts: c/o Boden {SimonSebastian}
Simon's denim: Old Navy (via our every-other-year painful trip to buy him new jeans)
Sebastian's kicks: Sperry from super generous Caroline
Simon's kicks: Clarks via OnlineShoes.com
Simon's sweater: Gap

{and to see some REAL Simon diamonds .... check here or here .... scoooot}

Simon recently said, "people always say that Theo is so cute ... and then they add that Sebastian looks just like me and I'm just not quite sure how to take that."

I have to admit I don't exactly see the Simon/Sebastian resemblance but ... I'm sure it's there. Maybe it's the stick straight dirty blond hair vs. the voluminous brown locks that throws me. I don't know.

Anyway - I've always loved Boden's clothing for the kids and the few pieces we do have I foresee being passed down to child after child over the years because the quality is topnotch and the styles are always classic and sure to withstand the test of trend-happy time. I'll admit I'm not even sure I knew they sold clothing for adults but was pleasantly surprised to find that they do AND they even have a maternity collection. What? J.Crew is just scrambling to play catch up at this point.

I have a pretty terrible habit of letting clothes sit and sit and sit and sit AND sit in the dryer long after they've dried and usually that means I have to live with some seriously wrinkled clothing or surrender to the terrible fate that is ironing. I washed Sebastian's shirt (on clearance!) and let it do the customary sit stint in the dryer and it came out ... not starched and pressed but definitely not wrinkled (well, the proof is in the photos - see for yourself) like the kids' other shirts and I'm sold. And Simon's "Italian Stallion" (really the name of the style) shirt fits him like a dressier shirt should ... not hanging from his underarm rafters and is long enough in the arms which is a minor to a major miracle. All hail Boden.

Want to win a $100 credit to Boden? You do. They have a ton of stuff on clearance right now so you'll be sure to get a lot of bang for your credit.

You know the Rafflecopter road well and you should know that cheating and shortcuts are punishable offenses. Smile.

  2. grace! i love boden. almost as much as i love your blog. i'd love to win and i dearly hope i didn't mess up whatever rafflecopter is by inadvertently clicking on something i shouldn't have.
    i hear you on the men and their jeans. trying to get christopher to buy a pair of jeans is about as easy and trying to stuff a rutting hippopotamus into a tutu.

  5. I have been looking and re-looking at their maternity line, just wishing I could fit it in the budget, ever since a blogger I read wore a super-cute dress to her baby shower by Boden. Love the classic look of all their pieces.

  6. I love Boden! I don't think I'd even heard of it until a Babble post a few months ago but I've been smitten ever since. I just ordered a cardigan from there that I've been coveting since the fall. Buuuut there are plenty of other things I wouldn't mind having... I'll spend wisely, promise. =)

    ReplyDelete
  33. For some reason I just love all of their tees... but seriously, if I had $100 I would not buy a tee. I'd buy a bunch of stuff off the clearance page. Am I right?

    ReplyDelete
  34. This post is pure gold. I am one of those who thinks that Bash is a mini Simon, and I think it has everything to do with the forehead/brow/eyes. I love these pics!

  48. I LOVE Boden! I've not bought anything adult yet, but oh my, I love shopping high-end children's consignment sales specifically for Boden (amongst a few others)! Right now, I've been eyeing the Pretty Pintuck dress for Miriam b/c she is OBSESSED with dogs. And the jersey baggies for my boys b/c they LOVE wearing Boden shorts due to their comfort (and no snaps!). And then, I'm loving the Broderie Smock Top for me and I can't forget my husband, so if their tshirts are anything like the rest of their kids' clothing, I'd love to try them out!

    ReplyDelete
  52. oh and hello spring coats..you'll do just fine for keeneland.

    ReplyDelete
  53. My evil sister introduced me to Boden last year... now I regularly troll ebay for deals on their dresses and shirts! I own one shirt and dress and will probably outgrow them both soon due to the whole pregnancy thing... maternity time :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Perfect. Now I know what I should've given my sister for Christmas (let's be real....what I still have to give her for Christmas)

  76. I really, REALLY want a good pair of quality maternity leggings, so I might just get a few pairs of those. Or those skinny jeans--which look a.maz.ing.

    Ugh. Maternity clothes can be the worst. But these are pretty darn hopeful.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Boden isn't exactly in my student budget right now. But winning this raffle might do the trick! I love pretty much all of their stuff. I would go for almost anything, but particularly their workwear because, seriously, I could wear that stuff to more than just "work". I don't need a job to look this good: http://www.bodenusa.com/en-US/Womens-Skirts/WQ072/Womens-Chic-Wool-Pencil-Skirt.html

    ReplyDelete
  159. Okay, that first picture with Sebastian copying his dad's hands in his pockets?? Ah, too cute.
