mini boden for my mini me

This post was sponsored by Boden as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.


The return to school is just around the corner (next Wednesday for us!), which means the best shopping season is upon us: back-to-school shopping!!! Miss L has definitely come into her own sense of fashion in the past few years, but it’s refining itself to a place that truly reflects her personality. That has never been more true than when I handed her the mail a few weeks ago with the Mini Boden Back to School catalog and told her to mark the items of clothing she liked.


“Momma! This owl is so cute! Can I pick out this shirt?”

The first item of clothing she picked out was this Pet Portrait Shirt (Navy Owl). It has actual buttons sewed on to the shirt, which just makes the detail that much cooler, as if the owl wasn’t doing the job on its own.  Next on the list were “fuzzy”  Velour Sweatpants (Navy) to match with the shirt.


“Can I get more than one owl thing? I just really like owls right now.”

And with that, this Sherpa Lined Anorak (Multi Snowy Owls) was in our cart as well. The second she put it on, she couldn’t stop raving about how soft and furry it was! I’m super excited to have a jacket for school that can keep her warm on those cold days and also one that’s water resistant! Oh… and it’s machine washable… which means this may just last for more than one season!


And then came the rainbows!

“Momma! Can I get a rainbow dress and rainbow leggings and rainbow shirts???”

As a child of the 80’s who also had quite the love affair with rainbows, there was really no way I could say no. The Stripy Dress (Rainbow Multi Stripe) & Fun Leggings (Rainbow Stripe) are both made of the amazingly comfy and durable materials that Boden USA is known for! She also picked out the Retro Stripe T-Shirt (Navy Stripe) to complete her rainbow trifecta!

Now it’s no secret that I’m a sucker for Boden USA in my own closet, but I love the cheeky, fun and trendy pieces that Mini Boden has for kids! I also really appreciate their durability, which seems to be a kids clothing trait that varies greatly from brand to brand. I’ve been so happy about every Mini Boden purchase I’ve made for L over the years!
