a kick in the pants..
Since having Cole, my body keeps changing sizes. It's not a problem that I'm going to get much sympathy for since the numbers are getting smaller...but regardless, I have maybe 1 pair of pants that kindof fit me. (Shoes are too big, my rings are too big, my bras are too big, etc.) Clothes too big or close too small both pose a problem, right? I haven't bought a single item of clothing since I first moved here in July (which I'm really proud of) but yesterday I made the venture to the Banana Republic Outlet in Park City. I thought I came home with 2 great finds (a pair of cotton pants and a pair of jeans) until I go to put the jeans on this morning and they are way too big. I have always done this; I always buy clothes too big. I don't know why and Brad isn't much of a help since he's my husband and thinks that everything looks good. Flattering, but when it comes down to shopping...I need the help. So I'm still on the search for a good pair of jeans. I don't mind fitted, but I don't like tight. I have a very straight figure and I'm most comfortable in comfortable. Banana Republic is usually a good find and I'm in love with my JCrew jeans that I wear every day (which are also big), but I'm hoping to not spend as much as I did for those. (I know it could be worse. If I was trendy, I would pay at least $140.00.) Price aside, any favorites?
