Have you seen Boden’s Autumn 2013 catalogue yet? The first chunk of the catalogue is called “London Life,” which is all about how Boden is celebrating modern motherhood by creating clothes and outfits that work for the sexy modern mom. I cannot even tell you how much I love this.
Typically looking through magazines full of models is anything but inspiring for my closet and lifestyle, but I spent hours looking through this issue over and over again. I could see myself in every single one of these outfits. Each piece is unique, and carries its own weight through details and colors that make the outfit interesting but not fussy. They are practical, sturdy, beautiful pieces that every modern mom would want to own!
Take a look at these 11 outfits from the catalogue and be prepared to drool and be inspired!
11 Gorgeous Mom Outfits from Boden 1 of 12
Little Red Dress 2 of 12
This dress is about as simple as a dress can be, but the bright hue makes it such a statement. The knee-length hem and three quarter sleeve makes it so wearable and universally flattering. Also, can I have one of each of those shoes, please?
Embroidered Neckline Sweater 3 of 12
A sweater and a pair of jeans? A mom's staple for fall! And with that gorgeous embroidered neckline, no jewelry is necessary!
Floral Dress & Cardigan 4 of 12
Perfect for a working mom, this beautiful graphic floral dress fits like a dream and will take any woman from the office to dinner with her family. Also, I love that they paired it with those leopard heels -- so unexpected and fabulous.
Printed Blouse 5 of 12
I'm of the opinion that one can never own too many printed blouses. The neckline detail on this one is pretty and interesting, and the colorful print makes it fun and flattering. I would pair this with a skirt, like you see it here, jeans, or even shorts.
Mixed Brights 6 of 12
The bright, bold use of color in this line is so gorgeous. The pink and green mix here is such a statement, and such a fun and easy outfit for any mom. I mean, who doesn't wear jeans, a tee, and a jacket? Just spice it up with some amazing hues.
Color Blocked Blouse 7 of 12
This is another simple top that makes a big statement. The color-blocking is so on trend, and the bright and deep color pairing is perfect for a transition from summer to fall.
Bright Coats 8 of 12
Jeans, a white blouse, and a brightly colored jacket are absolutely perfect for fall and winter. Add a bold bag and you have an amazing outfit. Also, the bright red and chartreuse are a color combination I hadn't thought of, but am now totally itching to try.
Pencil Skirt and Tee 9 of 12
A pencil skirt and a tee is one of my all time favorite outfit combos. The look is so effortless chic, and the pairing of the mustard yellow and navy blue is spot on.
Embellished Tee 10 of 12
This is another top that needs no jewelry. The embellishing at the neckline creates a gorgeous statement to an otherwise simple top. Paired with a fun printed bottom, it's an easy and chic mom outfit.
Color Blocked Cardigan 11 of 12
Skimmer pants are showing up all over the place this fall, and I think they are so fun and a good alternative to all the jeans I have in my closet. Paired with a cute polka dot top, a color blocked cardigan, and leopard flats, you have an outfit that is chic, comfortable, and appropriate for any mom activity!
Stripes and Brights 12 of 12
Black and white stripes are so classic, and colored jeans are so trendy. Paired together you have a gorgeous combo that is easy for any mom to throw on, and makes you look like a million bucks.
