Not really pool weather here today so we’ve decided to head off to watch the baseball. I love going to Turner Field. It’s even more fun now the kids are old enough to sit through the whole 9 innings – as long as I take enough snacks to feed an army. I ran this morning so I’ve earned my pretzel and beers:)
It’s hot here but last time I wore shorts to the Braves game I sweated like a very sweaty thing on the plastic seats – nasty – I walked out looking like I’d had an accident…so today it’s neon jeans in an effort to stay cooler, or at least drier on the plastic seats! The planning that goes into an outfit can never be underestimated!
Before I start chanting at the Ted – as I was perusing the Boden Preview (20% off PRV3) yesterday, I thought I’d take a gander at the clearance section for this season. There are so many fabulous items currently discounted. I grabbed three sweaters that, in my eyes, are absolute bargains for the coming Fall.
This Cashmere crew neck in almond is divine – reduced from $148 to $88.80 – a bargain for cashmere. If it works out I may order more colors.
I’ve had my eye on this drop shoulder jumper in yellow all season and now it’s reduced to just $34 so I snapped up the yellow and the silver thank you very much.
Finally today is a very important day for a very dear friend – Happy 40th Birthday Mrs. School Gate Style – you’ll love your 40s I promise!
It’s rubbish weather here in Atlanta today – dark and dreary, such a shame after a fabulous weekend, but easier to bear now I’m back in the office. We had a fabulous time at Virginia Highlands Summerfest – the weather was perfect for mooching and watching some great live music. I was in awe at a group of 14-16 year olds rocking out on stage – called ‘My Homework Ate My Dog‘ – they were brilliant – and it got me thinking about how to introduce music lessons to my two. I think music is so important and there is evidence that reading music can also help with numeracy. I was reading basic music at elementary school and playing the recorder, and then I graduated to the flute which was challenging once orthodontics started! I really think understanding rhythm and reading music can boost your appreciation of music and we always have some sort of music playing in the house – anything from Led Zeppelin to Robyn to Mahler. So maybe I should start them with piano lessons?
Oh and one final very important note the Boden Autumn preview is out for women!!! In my opinion this is THE BEST season of clothes I have seen from them. Very ‘on trend’ with a retro, younger vibe – I’ve already placed two orders!!! My most favorite items are the Scoop Neck Tunic, Loulou dress, Cable knit dress (I’ve only ever previously bought 1 Boden dress!) and Skye jumper. Enjoy browsing and until June 25th there is a 20% discount.
