I am writing this while sitting in front of the window and watching the rain. It hasn’t rained for more than 5 minutes the entire summer and I am soaking it all in. I hope this brings some relief to the farmers because this has been a hard summer for crops.
While the humidity is maxing out the thermometer it has brought my thoughts to fall, so I went through some of my sweaters and long sleeve shirts to take an inventory. My favourite grey sweater from the last 3 years has a huge snag in the front of it. It was folded neatly on my shelf but it was on top, so I can only assume that the cat was walking through my clothes and got a nail caught (he has extra toes with extra nails and I have to keep them clipped because he gets them stuck on everything). I usually just weave the snag back in and smooth it out to make it not noticeable but it is smack dab in the middle of the front and it’s really obvious :( this prompted some online shopping Friday night (so exciting I know, but wine and the last dregs of birthday cake were involved, Tom was still at work, and the kids were in bed so it was awesomely quiet to me).
I first hit up Zara where there was some amazing jeans that I quickly put into my basket to come back to later. Then when I came back they were gone, like totally disappeared off the website. I can only assume that they were listed before they should have been so they pulled them, because when they sellout of sizes they keep the page up where you can get an email notification when your size comes in. I’ll be stalking the site to see if they put the pants back up because they were fantastic.
On my perusal of the Mango site I found a great replacement grey sweater. I ordered a small and am questioning if I should have sized up to get a roomier fit. I hope it looks as good as the photo because I have actually been wanting a grey sweater in a style like this for a long time and never found one that prompted an instant buy.
I can’t wait to wear sweaters again. Are you over summer too?
