Thursday was very clearly divided into 2 parts. The first part was a normal blog day. I popped into Soho to see a media preview screening of Downhill. I laughed and cried in equal measure during this rather unusual Brit comedy (review coming in another post).
And then I popped along to Regent Street’s flagship Banana Republic to check out the first day of their limited edition collaboration capsule collection with Finnish fashion and design house, Marimekko.
As I walked into the shop, I noticed just how much the iconic textile designs smacked of Jacqueline Kennedy and the brand’s printed dresses during the 1960 U.S. presidential campaign.
I tried on a couple of items before I totally fell for this skirt. I love the big print retro look and started to think of how perfect it would be paired with a bold colour top and some little pumps in New York next week.
This was all before I GOT THE CALL.
The call every mum dreads.
Telling me that Small had had an accident in the playground.
And then part 2 of the day was spent in hospital as the small man had x-rays on his very painful fallen-on arm. Not only was it broken in two places but needed surgery the following day.
