Yesterday boyfriend stayed in bed with a cold, so I took the opportunity to make a much more fruitful return visit to Primark. After battling the (still sizeable) crowds, gently refusing the well-intentioned advances of one store detective, and being reprimanded for trying things on in the middle of the lingerie department (What? The dressing room line was insane! (And no, I was not trying on lingerie.), I emerged victorious with a much-needed cardigan (item #30) and these adorable classic brogues (item #3...1??). This does seemingly step over the intended bounds of my 30 items, but given that seven of my original picks are still trapped in customs (and my pessimism regarding their ever getting out), I decided it was ok to do a little spur-of-the-moment trade-in. I'll figure out which of my original picks to swap out when (and hopefully not if) I finally get my package from home.
I didn't put a lot of planning into getting dressed today - I wanted to wear my new brogues, but everything else was pretty much dictated by the weather. England is cold, y'all! While all you lovely stateside ladies are frolicking about with bare legs, it's a windy mid-forties here, with drizzly rain predicted for tomorrow. I guess this is my weather karma coming back to bite me after being spoiled in Morocco.
Rapidly diminishing Emilys!
