This weekend Sara made a quick visit on her way to Baltimore. She was going to be do close! So she flew two one ways and took Amtrak down. What this meant for me was fancy cocktails, a Broadway show (Cinderella), and two days of talking and shopping.
I’m still 10 pounds heavier than of like to be. But really close to my “regular” size. I want clothes that fit. And look nice on the post baby body – I’m coming to terms with the fact my stomach will likely never be flat again. And I’m ok with that and even with tinge last 10 pounds if I must be.
But I do want to look nice. I work in a very casual environment. I have the business clothes when needed but it’s jeans for me. I’m trying to do T-shirts that are blouses but also not break the bank. And then EVERYTHING has the be machine washable because kids. And we use commercial machines in the building laundry room so everything gets washed hot. There is also the problem that this years cut seems to be cropped and boxy – not a look I’m comfortable in right now.
I bought a shirt with faux leather sleeves Saturday and wore it to brunch and shopping Sunday. It was the cutest I’ve felt in awhile. I’m finding my style.
