Boden By Me – Johnnie B Summer dress picks by Jojo @stylewithjj


Johnnie-B-Teen-Boden-Mara-dress-Geo-hearts-on-@stylebyjj-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell My daughter J and I spent a fun Sunday morning out in Shoreditch, taking photos of her new Boden dresses from the Johnnie B range for teens.

I have always loved Boden clothes and both my children grew up wearing Mini Boden, so we were thrilled to do this joint post on our favourite brand.

The dresses and shoes that Jojo wore were selected by herself.

Here, she is wearing the Mara dress with Geo hearts.

Jojo-@stylewithjj-in-Boden-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell I asked Jojo why she chose this dress and here’s her answer:

” I have always adored my Mini Boden dresses and this dress has the elements I love about Mini Boden, with its bright colours and strong prints. However, it also makes the right transition for me into my teens. It’s just perfect for parties and I’m loving its prom feel. I can’t wait to wear it when I go off to Asia this Summer. Perfect for those poolside evening parties. To complete the look, I would wear rounded sunglasses. I have the perfect pair of shades from the Mini Boden range which I have kept all these year.”

Mara-dress-Johnnie-B-Boden-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Like Jojo, I absolutely adore this bold heart shaped print. Beautiful when contrasted against this minty wall.

Little-Moose-unicorn-necklace-and-dress-Johnnie-B-Boden-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell This is how Jojo has chosen to accessorise her Boden Mara dress.

Unicorn, it seems, is very on trend this season. A bit like the Pineapple trend of last Summer.

This necklace is from Little Moose and the bright pink tail and mane of the unicorn so perfectly compliments the straps of the dress.

Johnnie-B-sandals-Riviera-suede-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Yes, we will be off to Asia this Summer, so pretty footwear is a must for pedicured toes.

Jojo picked these suede leather sandals. Love how the straps cross over at the ankles. Because it is so minimalistic in its look, that bright pop of blue looks great with bold prints and can be paired easily with pastel tones, such as the candy pink of her nails.

Johnnie-B-Greta-dress-on-Jojo-@stylewithjj-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Here, Jojo has selected the Greta dress with a Dusty Lilac coastline print. Again, I asked her why she picked this.

Here’s her answer: ‘”This dress takes me back to when I was 7 years old, I love how it gives me that nostalgic feel of previous Summers spent overseas and also in Cornwall by the seaside. The thin material of the dress makes me feel light on my toes and I just love the pretty frills at the neckline.”

Fox-pendant-by-Little-Moose-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell This Hazel cardigan in orange is just the perfect colour against the aqua and pink tones of the dress.

Jojo has picked this cute acrylic fox necklace from Little Moose which matches with her cardigan.

Jojo-@stylewithjj-modelling-Boden-on-Little-Big-Bell Jojo and I hope you have enjoyed this joint mother – daughter post. Again, I’m proud to say that Little Bell is back blogging with Big Bell.

Wishing you a lovely week. I will be back hopefully this weekend with a new post. I might be challenging myself with styling in neutrals. Invariably, colour will creep in, but let’s see how I do. So do keep an eye out for the new post. Till then, have a good day!

  1. Such pretty dresses. Jojo looks fabulous. My daughter Mae, has just started wearing the Johnnie B range – very well made, in my opinion. Little Moose do such cool acrylic pieces too – I think the Unicorn is my favourite. Great post!

      Thank you Lucy. Isn’t the Johnnie B range such a perfect transition from Mini Boden? The unicorn necklace is our favourite too. Have a lovely weekend. x

    Geraldine, thanks to you and your daughter for this joint post! I love the way you have paired up the colours of the graffiti walls with the fabric in the dresses! Your daughter is a confident model!
