Long time no post. A combination of yet another round of Norovirus (thank you small boy child for bringing that home from school), horrible outfits and sheer lack of time. I am fed up of winter, fed up of boots and jeans and sweaters and tights. I want to wear pretty summer things, and now please!
This weekend I went to Chicago and picked up my exchanged Boden Canonbury coat and it was also a no-no. Instead of humming the big top circus tune as he did last time, for this 2 sizes down version he started to hum the Dr Who theme. I forgot my camera, excuse the poor phone snaps, they certainly don’t show just how bad the coat looked. It looked like a very misshapen jacket that was oddly too tight in the back and short in the sleeve, despite being tent-like everywhere else. The single button sat so awkwardly on my bust and looked particularly bad fastened up. I liked the iris stripe as much as the grey stripe that I sent back last time. A real disappointment though overall, so back it went for a refund.
Also waiting for me was the Pique mini in navy spot. It’s a lovely textured cotton, puffs out a lot more at the waistband than I would have liked but for a good sale price I think I’ll keep it. I just need this snow to melt first!
