When I think back to my childhood, there are a few memories that shine brighter than the rest. One is cuddling up in bed while my parents took turns reading me books. My favorites? They often changed, except for one magnificent author: Roald Dahl.
The BFG, Matlida, The Twits, James and the Giant Peach. Every single title was more magical than the next.
I know, everyone thinks so. And I’m so glad they do! Because I recently stumbled across Mini Boden’s Roald Dahl inspired clothing collection and it transported me back to childhood. They did such an amazing job of capturing the spirit of the books in clothes that I would have loved to wear as a child. Now, I can only hope they bring these clothes back once my girls are old enough to appreciate the magic that is Roald Dahl.
For some people music takes them back to a time and place, but for me it’s the books. I can’t wait to share my favorites with my girls. And dress them in sequins and top hats as I do it.
Here are a few of my favorite looks, some I would even want to wear myself.
The Matilda Dress. How amazing are those tights?
Mrs. Ladybird Dress from James and the Giant Peach.
Dream Jar pajamas from The BFG.
There’s so much more to check out! Did you have a favorite Roald Dahl book? Mine would be The BFG by a long shot.
