Boden Owl Print Dress

Owl Print Dress by Boden | details at Caliope Couture

As a fan of cute prints I bring you another Boden find which I’m particulary fond of. This tunic dress features a barn owl print in an unusual but vibrant colour scheme.I first thought it was a bit too much colourwise as I don’t tend to wear a lot of green usually. I think that most warmer shades of green don’t go too well with my complexion but I do like cool shades. And this jade colour is quite a favourite so I’m really fond of the dress! the barn owl print is a huge plus, of course, as detailed depictions of fauna or flora always appeal to me.

I regularly watched a pair of barn owls through a nest cam a few years ago and have been a huge fan ever since. I realize it’s a very biologist thing to do but it was so fascinating to get an unadulterated peek into this little owl family’s life and watch their three chicks hatch and get stronger every day. They even clearly went through an awkward teen phase when they were ready to practise flying. But they were still in their juvenile plumage at that point so could just sit around with a  perceived look of discontent and stretch their wing muscles. The barn owl is actually the most widely distributed species of owl worldwide.

Having talked about barn owls exhaustively, let’s get on to fashion…

This tunic dress has a really versatile, feminine cut. That makes it pretty easy to wear on all kinds of casual occasions. The pleats below the empire waist seam are a nice detail. The dark green faux leather bag has a saffiano surface and silver hardware, both of which I particularly love when it comes to bags. And I’m quite the little bag addict, I have to admit…
