Over the past few months, whenever anyone’s said to me ‘So Rosie, what’re you doing these days?’ and I’ve replied ‘Well, I’m a full time blogger now!’ it’s usually been met with blank looks. Which isn’t really too surprising, since blogging is such a new industry and all, and hey!- I only discovered it myself about four years ago! So I usually go on to explain a little about the kind of things I do (writing, photography, social media & so on). And then the question that often comes next is ‘Right. So where’s that going to take you then?’
‘I don’t know right now!’ I usually reply (in a kind of faux-nonchalant manner) but secretly, inside my head and on the pages of my notebooks, I have goals. Some are big and will take months of work, others are the sort of day to day, bread and butter goals that keep me ticking along. There are things I want to achieve, there’s content I plan to create, locations I want to take photographs in, even companies I dream of collaborating with. Boden has been right at the very top of my ‘companies I’d love to work with someday’ list for a good while now. I’ve long admired their beautiful clothes, and the humour and charm in their branding, and the iconically British nature of everything they do. So when they got in touch a couple of weeks back? Well, I was pretty made up!
These darling trousers and striped Breton top arrived in the post on Wednesday, and I wore them out for an impromptu post-dentist coffee date in town with Jason yesterday afternoon. The top is the softest Breton I’ve ever worn (and I’ve worn my way through a LOT of Breton tops) and the trousers? I’m certain they’re going to be all I wear through the next few (hopefully warm!) months. Actually, who am I kidding? This entire outfit is all I plan on wearing over the next couple of months! I should tell you now too that Boden’s sale is on…and it’s a good’un. Would it be wrong to go back and buy another pair or two of these trousers in different colours and prints?
