Yesterday I saw my little guy (or not so little guy) Rex graduate from preschool yesterday (tear). I have been mentally preparing for this for a while, so there were no real tears, but I am still overwhelmed by the emotion of seeing all of them grow up. Heck, Angus is barely three months old and I just look at his pudgy body and I think, "wasn't he just a skinny little long baby like yesterday?"
I was always that sensitive child, you know, the one who would cry if someone look cross-eyed at her, so I suppose it is no surprise that things like my children growing up would bring out the sentimental momma in me. (Which does not bode well--at all--when they go off to college. I think the empty nest syndrome was named in honor of folks just like me.)
Anyhow, on Friday last week I had to bring Rex to his new school (my alma mater, btw) to be tested for kindergarten entrance (well, not tested..."evaluated"). He did great, as expected, because they evaluated his academic abilities. Had they evaluated teamwork/patience/social niceties, he may have been in a world of hurt. My boy is still pure id. Sigh.
Since my old school is really conservative (it is tied to the church we go to every Sunday), I figured short shorts and a tank would probably not be looked upon kindly...so I went ahead and pulled out a dress that has only recently been fitting me, the Boden Riviera Shirt Dress. Bonus? The colors match the school's colors, blue and white.
Boden Preview, too!).
CW is wearing baby Boden's Printed Applique Dress.
Riviera Shirt Dress. You all, if you are really really really tall, go ahead and order the long version, but keep in mind that it will be a whole lot of dress. I normally wear regular sized dresses, but I do that because my torso is so short, and often find that hemlines on the dresses are a bit shorter than they appear on the models. This dress is still plenty long in the regular version, so I know the length will be insanely long in the long version. Sadly there are no petites (but the fall version there are petites--yay!).
Okay, I will re-mention this in tomorrow's Boden Weekly Review Roundup, but I wanted you all to see this today just in case you have some summer/spring items on your radar...
|Boden is trying to entice us...|
Here is my caveat--if your item is COMPLETELY 100% in stock, you might be able to hold off till clearance time and receive a better price. If your item is pretty darn decently stocked, but some of the other sizes and colors are sold out/low stock, then you may want to think about getting it now, as the one you are looking out may be quick to sell out during clearance time. If your item is low stock now, or is sold out and pop backs, you should buy it right now as it likely won't be around at clearance time (and likely won't even have that great of a sale price, anyhow, as Johnnie only deeply discounts things that aren't really moving).
Hope that helps you all! :)
Here is a link for 15% off and free ship/returns (but for many of the items you will get more than 15% off):
Have a great Tuesday!
