It's that time of year when I optimistically buy new clothes for summer, still believing despite many, many knockbacks that a) we will get a summer and b) new clothes will stay looking lovely and not be irredeemably scrumpled and stained by the end of their first outing like the rest of my so-called wardrobe.
I have made my first ever purchase from the Boden
catalogue! I've definitely arrived, but where I cannot tell.
Also, if there is anything squarer than wearing Marks & Spencer jeans, it has to be wearing £12 'Outstanding Value' M&S jeans. But they fit
and they're nice
, and they're less than half the price of a pair of caffeine-enhanced knickers
