DAY 290 -- My wardrobe.

Last week I only partially heard a comment from my husband, "...need new jeans."  I replied, "Yeah, you do."  And he corrected me, "No.  YOU need new jeans."

He's right.  I do.  I hoped my jeans looked okay since I was wearing a shirt to hide my hiked up pants cinched around my waist.  Apparently they still look too baggy.  (I love that I have such a problem!)  But I don't want to get new clothes until the end of the year.  

In the meantime, I remembered I had a pair of khaki-colored denim pants that I had not worn since the Spring semester of 2008 because they were too tight on me.  I pulled them out of my closet and tried them on.  Woolah! They fit! That sent me on a try-things-on spree and I found a skirt, a dress, and a suit that all fit again.  It's as though I added to my wardrobe!

Still... I look forward to getting rid of baggy clothes in December.  Any guesses what will be on my Christmas wish list?   


  1. What a problem, huh? Doesn't that feel great??? Good for you!

  2. Have you considered thrift stores in the meantime? I complimented a friend on her cute skirt, and she said, "Goodwill." Me too, I laughed, and my sweater too. She gestured to hers and said she got it at Goodwill too! And we both had on really cute outfits!

  3. Susan... if only all problems were so wonderful, huh? :-)

    Lynn... Yeah, I keep thinking I will swing into Deseret Industries and try on some jeans, but so far I have not found the time and the inclination to coincide. I have a bunch of tops that I bought from D.I several years ago and I want to replace them too.
