Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to preview Boden's Spring/Summer collection 2015. As you may have noticed I've recently started a love affair with everything Boden which began after I discovered this skirt (worn here and here). Since then I've been totally taken with their retro design and bright bold prints. When it comes to the clothes I wear I want them to make me feel happy and playful and that is something that Boden certainly do!
Funny story, having had to leave Bristol late to travel to London (due to childcare arrangements) myself and Lori (who came up with my for the Amara Awards) knew we only had a really short amount of time to pop into the press day and view the collection. The train we were on had plugs that didn't work and so having both spent the day rushing around after our kids and not remembering to charge our phones we were both down the the red slither of battery.
I checked the address for the event and dumping out bags in our apartment for the night we literally ran straight back out the door and followed the postcode on a 25 minute walk to Somerset House, up the stairs to the room I thought it was in and...it looked very un-boden. With a few plinths scattered around in monochrome with some sunglasses on them..and some very fashionable people in black talking quietly..I went up the the guy in charge and asked 'where's Boden?'
So it turns out I was like 5 months early for the Autumn/Winter Boden press day..and had read the wrong email. My battery on my phone by this point was at about 2% and I couldn't find the email with the right address..so just before my phone cut out I managed to check IG and luckily the press day had the location tagged and we jumped in a taxi and managed to pop in quickly before the end of the day.
Oh wait, no we did stop outside the ice rink at Somerset House for a quick photo op ;)
I'm happy to say it was SO WORTH IT. And I am eagerly awaiting Spring for all this prettiness, just look at that top (it's a two piece set *swoon*).
P.S Boden* have 25% off at the moment too...just saying (use code X4K7)
