After sizing up my closet and dresser, I realized that my current wardrobe is woefully inadequate. I am sure my plight is similar to many other runners– I have way more running/workout clothes than I could ever need and not enough “regular” clothes.
I know this transition was not sudden, but it does make me realize that I need to go shopping ASAP! My two favorite pairs of jeans are starting to show their age (not unlike their owner!) and are in need of replacement. I have to hand it to Joe’s Jeans and Citizens for Humanity–these jeans are still kicking it after 6 years!
I also realized after yesterday’s inventory, that I have about three shirts that I wear regularly. Maybe I just need to go on What Not to Wear – assistance with a whole new wardrobe would be a godsend. Although, I don’t think I could handle being secretly taped wearing my workout gear–gasp–everyday!
I am sure the desperate need for a wardrobe overhaul has also been influenced by two pregnancies. Now that Collin is almost two years old, I am ready to get out of my standard mom uniform and experiment a little more. The problem is that I really have no idea where to start.
Truth be told, I really don’t like shopping for clothes. Maybe that’s part of the problem. In fact, I am really not that much of a shopper in general– except when it comes to running gear! I see pictures in magazines that I like and people who’s style I admire, but I have no clue how to recreate that for myself.
I am going to pencil in some solo shopping time this weekend and try to just start with some basics. Any good sales out there or places I should check out?
