We’re moving back to Georgia in early May; the countdown has begun. I’ve honestly been packing and donating for a while now, and don’t really “feel” like I will have a problem finishing in time without too much stress, but I’ll probably still have some anxiety at the end, especially when I start packing up the kitchen. Ugh.
Wardrobe wise, I feel pretty good where I am now. I have saved a few things that are too small for my body now, but they are only pieces I really really love. They’re packed away so I don’t have to look at them all the time, but it would be nice if I fit into them again. Otherwise, I’ve added enough items lately that fit my body and that I’m happy in to keep me satisfied for a while. And I can still wear some of my clothes from “before” or that I bought when I was pregnant (that’s one good thing about loving “oversized” styles…), like this Raquel Allegra jumpsuit and my long maxi dress, also by RA.
Oh, I did order a pair of bike shorts from Girlfriend last week. Gasp. I know…shorts…but I want to try them with a big tee, or tank or whatever and see if I can do it. Of course I CAN do it, but I’ve had so much fear of shorts (my knees) for so long that it might take me some time to ease into. Recently though, I do feel like I’ve TRULY hit the IDGAF stage of dressing – even more than before; I just don’t have time to think about anyone else who might be offended by my knees.
I ordered mine from Girlfriend because I had $10 off from rewards points (if you use my referral link you’ll get $10 off your first purchase of $95 or more) but a few colors are included in Shopbop’s coupon code that ends today.
Speaking of that…I mentioned I ordered a pair of Suicoke sandals with that code – if you are also interested in them, maybe try now? The problem for me has always been sizing – it seems so confusing. I went with the size 7 and they should be here tomorrow, so we’ll see. Won’t help you for this sale, but for future purchases maybe? I’m really excited about those!!
I also got these no6 clogs with the code. I couldn’t help myself!! Even given my track record lately with clogs (buying..returning…) the love dies hard; I have to try them.
Ok, so enough of that. I went to the eye doctor yesterday and am trying out contact lenses for the first time in forever. It’s really hard wearing glasses with a 20-month old…he knocks into them and gets fingerprints on them all the time when we play so that I can barely see out of them at all most of the time. They’re progressive, which I love and allow me to see better than ever, but not when they’re falling off my face. Anyway, I don’t love the way I see with contacts, but I might just get them to have to wear while exercising or working in the yard or whatever to keep my glasses “safe.” The issue now is that I need readers.
That’s the long way of asking for suggestions on “cute” or modern-looking readers? I’ve looked at warby parker and caddis – has anyone tried those? Any good ones at Costco?? haha. Thanks for suggestions.
I hope you have an AMAZING weekend 🙂
