One of the things I love about my line of work is press days, I love catching up with the brands I've worked with during the year, seeing the new lines and socialising with my fellow blogger friends. It's often a great excuse to get out of Bristol and up to the big city for a child free night away too! When it comes to the new seasons the brand I'm always so excited to see is Boden, having missed A/W 15 because I was in the midst of terrible morning sickness I knew I wanted to make S/S 16 even though I am now 8 months pregnant.
That being the case Tom and Wilf were kind enough to accompany me to the show (y'know in case I went into labour or something ;)) and we decided to make a few days of it in the capital as a final little break before we become a family of four.

Now that we know we are going to be having a little girl in our family I was a little bit distracted/obsessed with the Mini Boden girls range. I have to admit I that when we first found out the gender of this little one the Boden sale was the first place I took myself. You can see what I bought in this haul video actually. Recently I had to add this little cardigan to my collection because, well just look at it, I mean, really?
Wilf was very taken with the giraffe on the carousel and was a little upset when it was taken off for the models to do their thing (nothing a promise of pudding in a cafe didn't sort). It was actually really fun taking Tom and Wilf along and it was nice for me to show Tom a bit more of my world (he's now been to three press days with me). The collection was just as good as I expected from the brand, who just seem to get better and better. For someone who has always been a big fan of the sixties vibe they are my go-to place for beautiful well made clothing with that retro touch. I'm just looking forward to being out of maternity clothes and back into 'normal clothing' hopefully by they time these pieces launch!
On a similar note, Boden have just launched their Christmas range which includes a few bits of homeware (the cutest decorations!) and they also have 25% off coats until Wednesday if you are quick!
