Boden Bistro Shorts


Happy Monday post-FIFA World Cup everyone!  So off we go from the grandiose Palos Verdes Peninsula back to back with the Pacific Ocean-themed post (which I’m sure got y’all distracted!) last week to the rustic-in-the-city Rancho Los Cerritos (a national landmark, btw) located in the heart of the upscale Bixby Knolls neigborhood in Long Beach CA. :-)

And my Summer fun with BODEN continues via this multi-colored striped Bistro shorts which I am initially wearing with one of my fave logo tees from Gap (yes it’s British meets American style here according to my multi-tasking photographer-cum-fellow-stylist :-) ).  Definitely no oversell here (all opinions are my own)…..but those shorts are nothing short (pun intended!) of spectacular in terms of style, fit and quality.  I can totally see myself wearing this pair up and down in a lot of soirees all Summer long. 

Congratulations to Ellen Casper, the lucky winner of the $25 BODEN gift card giveaway who will officially be notified via email of her win.  I just hope you have a U.S. address for shipping because if not, another lucky participant will be chosen. ;-)

Huge thanks to all those who joined (meaning those who specifically wrote in their comment what they want from the BODEN website). :-) Plus don’t forget to check out BODEN’s huge Summer sale which is now up to 60% off and still going on strong till this Sunday, July 20! ♥

    Of course you look terrific. You don’t need me to tell you that. But may I add that I love the sandals?
    I was wondering when you were going to add more shoes… and here you are.

    Such a fun play on the neon trend! I love that you kept things grounded and earthy with the leather belt, straw hat, and chunky sandals. The print on them reminds me of an alligator skin print, so they look perfect for your southwest-inspired outfit! Such a fresh, eclectic look!

    The Boden shorts are a good length, not too short. I love how they are so colourful, they look great with your yellow heels. Love the graphic t-shirt with the multi-colours. The hat completes the look perfectly.

    Your candy-striped shorts are gorgeous Rebecca and that Neon Pink Gap Tee is perfect with them. Is Gap in London now? WOW!! It’s great if it is.

    Happy Monday Fabulous Lady!!
