You Can’t Always Get What You Want #WeekendLinkUp #WelcomeToTheWeekendLinkUp

Hello friends, happy Friday.

Hope you have had a lovely week so far?

Are you looking forward to the weekend?

You Can't Always Get What You Want You Can't Always Get What You Want

You Can’t Always Get What You Want:

“You Can’t Always Get What You Want”. How true is this?

All Summer long I have been popping into Marks And Spencers for this amazing navy blue polka dot dress with a red strip down and could not find it anywhere.

Yesterday when nipping into their Nottingham branch for a gluten-free birthday cake for my Dad, I spotted this jumpsuit; there in the distance, just hanging up.

I was actually having a look around the clothing selection to see if I could spot the new Holly Willoughby must have picks but got sidetracked when I saw this gorgeous jumpsuit just hanging there in front of me.

I looked to my left, then looked to my right to see if anyone was heading for it and rushed straight over.

My heart was pounding; 10 to the dozen!

There was 2 hanging up.

I quickly took one of the jumpsuits of the peg and frantically looked at the size. Size 8, NOOOOO!!!!!

I quickly took the other off the peg, another size 8. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both 2 sizes too small.

I had a bit of a Cinderella moment and thought I would try it. Hoping it would not look good on me to stop me wanting it. It may have been too small but would have looked great in a bigger size. Noooo!!!!!!

Anyhow it did not fit. So unlike Cinderella, I will not go to the ball.

Ha, I did not need it anyway. (Even though it was so-me). I just wanted it.

So in the words of The Rolling Stones; You Can’t Always Get What You Want!!

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you might find
You get what you need-The Rolling Stones

      No, I keep looking. Only a size 6 or 16. So 2 sizes to big or too small 🙁

    That is a shopping tragedy! Nothing worse than finding something you love only to discover none in your size! Have a fabulous weekend!

    Claire, you are so cute! What a bummer because that is a super cute jumpsuit and totally your vibe! Maybe the shopping gods will shine upon you and someone will return the correct size or you will find an even better one!
