I am not a shopaholic but I do quite enjoy going clothes shopping. I find that the best expeditions are not when you are on a mission for something specific as you can then almost be sure that you will NOT come across the right outfit. No, I like browsing and letting myself get inspired.
Now of course I have plenty of friends to go with and it is lovely when we have time for coffee and cake or lunch too, catching up on respective news. I also have two daughters, as you know, who are very enthusiastic about coming along, especially if the trip includes getting THEM something.
However, the best person to go shopping with is… Sexy Hubby. He LOVES going into town and hitting the shops, and I do not think there has been a single holiday when we have come back empty handed. Our latest trip to Barcelona was heavenly in all aspects, including shopping. My favourite brand, Desigual, happens to be Spanish and they have of course a flagship store in the city. They also have loads of other outlets and we ended up going back after a “main shop” when we spotted a place which had tops that we had not seen in the flagship store. Who said we absolutely had to check it out? Sexy Hubby, not me. He was also the one who insisted I had to get these Mango high heels leopard print sandals, but I am responsible for the trip to Guru the last day.
I often see during our shopping outings men sitting down on the couches or armchairs outside the changing rooms, looking bored out of their minds and showing little interest when their partner comes out asking for an opinion. I therefore do realise how lucky I am that the guy with me is waiting eagerly to see the result or bringing me MORE pieces to try on as “that will look just fantastic on you”.
So now tell me, in which category does your husband or boyfriend fit?
