On Saturday we went on a family expedition to Brighton - Bank Holiday Weekend, not really sure why I thought it a good idea! Brad at 11 hates going anywhere far from his laptop & most of all hates shopping. Asking him to try anything is like you have asked him the worst thing ever. He walked round pretty much permanently with his pre-teen sulk face on , whilst 3 year old Fin was also in a stinker of a mood & pretty much refused to try anything on at all. To say I came home completely frazzled is an understatement to be honest.
Both boys were appeased when we went for a quick walk a long the seafront ( Finley by fairground type rides & ice cream & Brad by the ice cream he hadn't actually wanted but soon changed his mind when he saw Fin's.)
I was quite pleased to get Fin to bed & then get the foot bath out for a much need sore feet restoration session.
Anyway , as is the norm I go way off topic so let us begin ...
Let's start with Zara because that is were our journey started anyway. I saw lots of lovely things although I did forget to go look at a pair of shoes I had been interested in. My problem was that it was a case of in & try thing on as quick as poss before the 3 year old kicks off.
|I tried these & they would have been lovely a size up but they did not have them in stock. They have a cargo look about them but in skinny form. I am hating Zara website today. I must be tired as I cannot find anything. I think these were £29.99 again though. If I could find them I would order them in a size up as I adored these. Gutted I had to put them back. They did have other colours but I liked the green very much.|
I did try a nice blue shirt on that had little anchors dotted all over it too. No pic as now Blogger is being a pain & won't let me upload It and SURPRISE I can't find it on the website. I loved it though but it was a medium & whilst it fitted OK I was not 100% sure I would be happy with it so I left it. If I ever find it again I will be sure to share the link. Times like this I wish I could drink wine!
Next stop was at Pull & Bear. Another location I could have added everything to my basket. Sadly though I came out with just 1 item.
As with any shopping trip I went into H&M too. It is a big favourite of mine. I usually know my size very well & I came away with everything I tried on.
|Playsuit - these companies do not like me. Another item I cannot find for you online. This blog post is a disaster. I am so sorry. This play suit was £12.99|
|Lace Dress - whilst the thought of wearing white fills me with all kinds of horror, I could not resist trying this on. I had to size up from 14 to 16 but for such a pretty dress I don't mind.|
|Jeans - £14.99. I struggle to find jeans. Always have done. I am so short ( a mere 5" 1 ) so very hard even in today's climate of the petite ranges. Today though I seemed to have much more success. These from H&M are so-o soft! I loved them as soon I stepped into them. As is the norm though they are a bit long but a quick turn up soon sorts that out nicely.|
Next stop "Gap" & again I hit jackpot with Jeans! This really is unheard of & will probably not happen again. Oh & to make things feel even better everything was 30% off!
|Basic tee - Nothing special about it but I love basic items like this in my wardrobe.|
Last 2 stops took me to Primark & then Boots.
