Now that I have a job (and a paycheck) I decided to update my wardrobe and bring some fun fashion into my life.
I’ve been shopping the past few weeks. My work wardrobe was old and out of date, and it didn’t feel right for who I am now. PLUS I was tired of wearing pants that were a little tight around the waist (and hips) just to try to look slimmer. F*** that! 😉
The result? A wonderfully flowy group of clothes that all fit!
I went to Target for stretchy jeans and slacks, a few maxi skirts, and cardigans and lucked out by hitting sales. And then went to Ross for discount shoes and some scarves. Guess who’s able to wear heels again? Yep, my balance and strength are back now that it’s been a year and a half since my hip replacement. Woohoo!
I also went to my favorite Goodwill to find tops…. and while I was there I found a delightful dress… I love it when that happens…
I had fun putting my new clothes (including the fashion scarves) in order by color in my closet. This is the first year I have ever had purple in my wardrobe. Yet I LOVE it now! Isn’t it funny how your tastes change?
The delightful part for me, besides the retail therapy 😉 , has been putting together outfits each work day. Here is a fashion show of a few of my ensembles.
I have so many more to put together with all the separates I’ve got… I think I’ll start posting them on Instagram and Facebook for fun. The layers I have will work well into the winter here in Camarillo. Just add some tights (which I stocked up on last year) or boots (have had for ages) and I am set!
How about you? Have you done some clothes shopping for fall?
As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.
