Buy This, Not That: Looks for Spring!

It’s been a while since I have put together a “Buy This, Not That” post.  I am featuring Boden today because I was so inspired by their Spring catalog!  This company, founded in the UK, is my new favorite source for versatile clothes with great quality and good value.  Boden’s Spring look reminds me of Kate Spade meets J.Crew, for less….
