It’s time for….the Summer Boden Questionnaire!

If you get the Boden catalog, you know that one of the fun features are the questions they ask the models. They’re usually silly and a lot of fun.

So, even though I will never be a model, I like to try my hand at answering them. Some summer fun for us today, if you will.
