I did something about it.
Yep. Me. The talker, but not the do-er. I went shopping.
My mom and I spent about 5 hours last Friday trying on clothes at Target and Kohls ('cause this girl's on a budget, yo!) and I actually bought things!
My shopping guidelines for this trip?
No new bottoms of any kind until you've lost weight.
No yoga/fitness clothes.
No one item can cost more than $20.
Only buy things you that you wouldn't normally buy or that you absolutely need for work.
After burning through $200, I came home with loads of stuff to show Joshua. He would never survive a shopping trip with me, because I only go clothes shopping when I absolutely need something, so i try on everything that fits the parameters...hence the 5 hour trip. So I brought everything that I liked home with me to show him when he returned from Michigan.
After the fashion show on Monday I was left with about half of what I originally bought (he liked more than I thought he would, yippee!), which was the goal, so WIN!
Here's the loot!
Speckled Sweater: Target
Purple Shirt Dress: Kohl's
Gray, White, and Purple T's: Kohl's
Red Embellished Tank: Kohl's
Brown and Cream Camis: Kohl's
Brown and White Lace Tanks: Kohl's
I think this is a great start. I'm on my way to dressing like an adult! :)
