What I Wore to Go Kitchen Shopping

outfit post featuring blue jeans and pink sweater

Now that we know the insurance company will be covering the tedious repairs to the blocked drain under our house  (Which we still don’t have a date for, by the way. There was some talk of the fire-breathing dragon perhaps being used after all, so we got stuck in a terrible cycle of getting quotes, then comparing quotes, then getting more quotes, then wondering whether we should risk using the mess-free-but-less-predictable dragon, or play it safe with the digging-up-of-the-hall. We’re going with the digging up – because why go for the quicker and cleaner option when you can guarantee days of disruption, plus a thick coat of dust over everything you own? –  so hopefully it’ll be done this week, then I can stop talking about it…), this weekend we got back to obsessing over the things we’d been obsessing over BEFORE our bathroom sink dramatically exploded. Namely: the kitchen.

Now, as I mentioned in this post, there are lots of things we’d like to do to our kitchen, one of them being basically ripping the whole thing out and starting again. We’re not going to do those things, though. Because we just can’t afford to. We can, however, do a few things to give it a bit of a facelift, and that was the purpose of our Sunday afternoon shopping trip. We’re just window-shopping at this point, unfortunately, because we need to get that whole “blocked pipe” fiasco dealt with before we start thinking about making even MORE mess, but it was still fun to wander around showrooms and pretend we actually lived in them. Well, that’s what I did, anyway: Terry mostly walked around measuring things and comparing one worktop with other, very similar worktops, but then again, if we BOTH shopped like I do, we’d have gone out to look at kitchen fittings and come home with a roll-top bath or something, so I guess it’s a good thing he likes to keep it all practical, all the time.

I may not have come home with a roll-top bath, however, but I ALMOST came home with a new coat, which is quite a feat, really, considering we were out looking at kitchen stuff, no?

pink tweed coat

OK, so this wasn’t actually a kitchen showroom. It was TK Maxx. And no, I didn’t buy the coat, although I was sorely tempted. I didn’t buy The Best Boots in All the Land (also found in TK Maxx), either, even although they were so perfect it almost hurt to look at them. Honestly, I think I must be coming down with something…

  • That is a very lovely “Amber” coat. You were very restrained!

  • I love your scarf with the pale pink sweater! Great combo. I also like to wander around showrooms, pretending or imagining that I actually live in them, haha! xxx

  • I like how your smartphone case acts like a chameleon and it “gets lost” in your scarf :3

    OK, I am totally in love with that pink plaid coat! You are a model of self-control. I myself just ordered a teal coat online as I could not resist. Now I want a pink plaid one too!
