There are a glut of these Boden Chic Beaded Tops WA347 on eBay, not sure why, I can’t see anything wrong with mine – nice fit, beadwork survived multiple washes… just not a popular line I guess. Oh well, my gain, I might pick up another one.
Cracking out the shorts today, despite the fact I think I have the whitest legs in all North America! My teenaged-self would have been mortified. I can’t quite believe we used to sit at school with baby oil on our legs trying to fry in what little of the Scottish sun we could catch, yikes.
I bought these Eddie Bauer shorts last year, they were not a great fit at the time, remain so now despite weight gain, and yet I nearly bought an even bigger size, terrible! We usually do a daytrip to a big outlet mall and stock up for the season only it never quite works out for me. It’s fine for the children: 10 tops, 5 bottoms, new pair of shoes, or whatever we’ve decided they need… even my other half can shop like that, he never changes size, just buys a number of shirts and trousers and that’s him sorted. But me? Ugh. I can never find anything to fit, the stress of the 1-day shop is too much. I end up coming away with nothing, totally depressed, or with a bunch of stuff that is not great but bought in desperation just moments before we were about to leave. So I have resolved not to do the outlet shop for me this year, just pick up what I need as and when. Now that I’m sure Spring is here to stay I really ought to start 🙂
