Every now and then, something strikes my fancy in such a major way that I can’t get it out of my head.
That happened pretty much the second I spotted this shot from Emily’s Instagram feed.
Pretty much my first two thoughts were:
A) Dang, I wish I could paint like that
B) Dang, that coat is dope (okay, so I probably didn’t actually think the word, “dope,” but that’s what came out of my fingers just now, so I’m going with it)
Of course, I knew it wouldn’t be cheap since it’s from Boden. In fact, knowing that, I avoided even trying to track it down for a solid week.
Finally, my curiosity got the better of me, and I found it on the site.
It strikes me as a bit funny that both Emily and I liked it so much considering that she’s just as adamantly devoted to her beloved neutrals as I am to my colors (long live aqua!).
But it’s a pretty stinkin’ fantastic raincoat, so I’m not surprised even a neutral-lover would be drawn to it.
So, what was the price tag?
$151.30. (#random). On sale.
I started calculating just how many Shop My Closet Items I would have to sell to pay for it, guilt-free, and how much time it would take to snap all the pics, list all the items, ship all the stuff. Then I factored in how many years it would take off my life to take 6 kids to the post office. Multiple times.
I closed my computer.
There’s only so much you can love a cute floral raincoat.
That said, be on the lookout for some Shop My Closet items coming up. I doubt I’ll get enough of them listed in time for my size of raincoat not to sell out, but I had planned on doing some closet purging anyway, so we’ll see how it goes.
Am I the only one who gets fixated on something specific? Somehow I doubt it, but feel free to
enable validate me if you wish.
