Well, I'm ready for winter...my closet isn't!
I knew this was going to happen & I tried to put it off as long as I could, but I can't deny it any longer...my winter wardrobe is suffering...BAD. Towards the end of summer, I began looking for new long-sleeved tops, pants & boots. But, everything I tried on didn't fit or was just too expensive.
The few winter tops I have (that I still like), I've worn them so much the past month or so, that I'm sure my co-workers are like, "Omigod, she's wearing that shirt AGAIN?!". I've been wearing jeans just about every other day. I mean, I am lucky that I work in a place where jeans are okay sometimes, but not as much as I wear them. I stare at my closet every morning & I promise, I try to put cute outfits together, but it just never happens. After I try on like 4 outfits, I resort to my jeans & pick from one of my 6 or 7 tops that are wearing down fast because I wear them so much.
Every morning I silently scream, "Someone, PLEASE HELP ME!!".
Last Thursday, I finally admitted to my co-workers that my winter clothes are just non-existent. Two other women admitted the same thing to me! I realized that I wasn't alone...and that made me feel better.
And, then last night, I went to Ann Taylor Loft (my FAVORITE store...we finally got one here) & looked around. When I finally left the store about an hour later, I felt that I'd been successful. I purchased 2 long-sleeved tops & a pair of pants! When I got home, I tried it all on for Matt, who seemed pleased that I'd found a couple of things...(and he didn't even ask how much I spent!).
This morning, I woke up & felt better about myself & my closet. It might take me a little while longer, but hopefully, I'll have a winter wardrobe I can actually live with, before it's time to pull out my shorts & short-sleeved shirts again!
