One pleasant side effect of all that healthy eating we’ve been trying to do for the past decade (
cheese, except at parties!) as well as joining a gym 2 yrs ago is that I’ve lost all the Gus baby weight and then some. I weigh less than I have in 15 yrs at least, and I’m generally pretty happy about it.
Except that now I really, really, really have to go clothes shopping. I mostly do not like any shopping, and I definitely HATE clothes shopping. All that trying stuff on takes so much time and effort, and I’m not always good at picking things that flatter me. Jonathan is better at it than I am, but who has the time for us BOTH to go shopping at once? I wish I could buy things online but since sizes are always so variable it’s too risky.
But my wardrobe is in painful need of some updating. For the past 5 (!) yrs I’ve only worked in an office 2 days/week. But this semester I have three days of internship per week, and dammit, I’d like to be able to wear a different pair of pants for each of those days.
So my New Year’s resolution is to stop buying unflattering clothing! And before the semester starts I will spend some time shopping for some grown-up clothes that fit and look nice. Would that we were flush with cash I would splurge on this incredibly fun skirt, though it’s not really work-friendly. Friendly critters!
