I have slowly been working on beefing up my seriously lacking wardrobe. I had to toss 3 shirts this week alone (holes and I have enough junky shits). Shopping is less fun and more frustrating and tiring than I thought it would be.
I went to Wal-Mart with the toddler in tow. I know – not the best situation to clothes shop especially since I now have to try everything on. I picked up some shirts and capris in 12 and 14. I had to force myself to not go to the Women’s (plus) section even though I saw some cute shirts. Shopping the the “regular” section felt foreign to me. Like I was entering a forbidden zone.
The 12’s all zipped up and buttoned. Some were a bit tight so I didn’t buy them. The shirts were Large but it feel foreign to me to have such fitting shirts. I might go back and get the XL’s. I am also not used to the girls and the girls points being so visible. I have to get used to it I guess.
I tired Old Navy last night. A bunch of Large shirts. They fit but again too snug. I might upsize but it is frustrating to see so little progress in the size department. I didn’t buy anything but I will go back and spend more time at Old Navy.
