I am continuing to try and post every single day the outfit I wear so I don't end up showing off outfits from months past. Starting tomorrow (Monday), I will begin to post two outfits a day (the day's outfit plus one from the past). I should be able to catch up again completely by the end of the month.
I hope I can publish my Mid-Century Mom tonight, but I am feeling pressed with family time (which is okay, that is the best kind of overextended you can have) and with getting my latest for sale stuff together for my Cash from My Closet, so it may be tomorrow before the latest Mid-Century Mom post gets published.
The polyvore for today's outfit is above. We were heading to a party today for a little girl turning 5...but it was NASTY outside, you know, 45 degrees and raining REALLY hard. So I knew I had to put something really warm, yet festive on...and this is what I found. The Boden dress is nice and toasty. I highly recommend it. I would say go up one size from your normal size because it is a sweater dress, so I am wearing a UK 12R in it. It is kind of clingly.
Right now it is sold-out at Boden, but I have a feeling that after the holidays there may be some returns, so ladies, I am telling you...December 26 or 27, expect to see some popbacks over there. Also, an anonymous commenter pointed out that if you go to the UK site, you can still see the reviews for the products, very helpful indeed. I haven't really examined the UK site to see what is over there (the prices send me into shock...so expensive to me if you do the exchange rate), but it is worth a look. Boden has done this before...the reviews will disappear for a few weeks when the items first go on sale and then reappear!!! It is bizarre.
