Ok my post title lies, it DOES snow here 🙂 I’m writing this post Tuesday evening and it’s snowing like crazy outside. Boy am I glad we went to the grocery store this morning! Our car does not manage well in the snow so we are basically stuck whenever it snows. There’s a Whole Foods within walking distance (like a few miles) which is good when you need it but I would prefer not to walk through the snow to get groceries. I made a seafood chowder for dinner (I put it Tilapia, scallops and clams) and it was SO good and perfect for this weather! I’m on a soup kick, I’m gonna make this recipe next! Anyway, onto the outfit for the day… I think you all know that I love ruffles so when I saw this cardigan I had to get it! The ruffles wrap around the back too which is such a fun detail. And the “shooties” are one of my faves for the winter. I know, winter shoes? I’m a weirdo but since I wear pumps a lot, these shoes actually cover my feet and keep them warmer than pumps so I consider them winter shoes! 🙂
So about these jeans, I love them but I bought them when I was in between sizes and thought that I should size up to be safe (too tight jeans are just such a no no in my book) but now that I’ve lost weight, they don’t fit at all.
So I’m putting them on my next blog sale but if you want them first, email me. (they are a size 26 and I’ll sell them for $20) UPDATE: They are sold! They are really great jeans that don’t even feel like jeans, more just like leggings. They are fab and I would totally keep them if they were my size!
On another note, I don’t ever keep “fat jeans’ just in case because that would only encourage me and justify me keeping weight on so I just get rid of clothes that don’t fit rather than keep them in my closet. Same with “skinny” clothes. Only keep clothes that fit and then when you lose weight/gain weight, buy new ones, because when you have to buy clothes a size up, you’ll be reminded of how much weight you’ve gained and that might encourage you rather than buying new clothes to go work out instead! Or if you’ve lost weight and you get to buy new “skinny” clothes than it will be a reward for your hard work! But the point is, only wear clothes that currently fit your body because anything that isn’t your size will just be doing a disservice to yourself no matter what size you are.
Mine are a few season’s old and there’s not that many low cut style of booties out there any more but these are pretty similar. These foldover booties are cute too. Or these for $50!
