Each year I do a spring cleaning, I clean out my kitchen cupboards, I clean out my closet, I clean all the winter crud out/off my car..
This has become a twice a year thing since I also do this in the fall as well.
In the winter I’m all about clothes that are warm and comfortable, jeans, t-shirts and sweaters. I don’t like being cold so anything else is not very appealing. In the summer I wear skirts, blouses, nicer clothes, it’s a time for me to get a little dressier and enjoy the skinnier me.
Last year I went out and bought a bunch of new blouses and at the time, some were tight, some I couldn’t even wear right away. I tried those tops on this year and they feel loose and big… so that was a nice surprise! When I buy new clothes I throw out an old piece of clothing that I no longer fit in. I can’t wait for the day where I can actually buy a top and not have to get rid of anything unless they have been worn out. Not because I have lost, not because I have gained. Because I’ve reached a good weight and I can finally build up my wardrobe and not buying an article of clothing and getting rid of one.
At this point, I only have 2 pair of good jeans (both too big) I don’t want to buy more until the end of the summer, in case I lose weight over the summer.. And maybe enough tops/blouses to last through the week. I have a bathing suit that’s too big and it just always seems like I need clothes and never seem to have much choice. Someday!
This weekend I’m going shopping, I hate shopping but I plan on buying a couple new tops, maybe a skirt or cargo pants. I use to HATE shopping. I got to the point where I could only buy clothes in Plus size stores and that was depressing, nothing seemed to fit. I’m too tall, which still poses a problem. These days, things are fitting better and if I find a top or anything that I like, they usually have my size. Might not fit how I would like but at least I now have a size option. That use to frustrate me so much when I shopped and just couldn’t find anything I liked in my size.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to buying a few new clothes, seeing if I can actually go down a size again. It makes you feel good to shop for new clothes, clothes that fit, clothes that look and make you feel good. I’m glad I don’t hate shopping as much anymore, but trust me I still will always HATE shoe shopping! They just don’t make nice comfy shoes anymore without having to pay an arm and a leg for them!
Anyways I’ll let you know how my shopping goes, hopefully I’ll find a few nice things. Maybe I’ll even post a couple of pictures!
