Clothing Haul

5:00:00 PM


As some of you might know, I cleaned out my closet a few weeks ago! If you don't believe me, check out "Emotional Hoarding + Purging My Closet."

It was a necessary evil and it needed to be dealt with. I'm actually quite embarrassed that I let it get that bad. I'm glad I dealt with it before our upcoming move though. If I hadn't, I probably would have packed it up and put in our new closet, then never looked at it again. 

Once I was done, I only had about a weeks worth of clothes left over. Until recently, I was rewearing the same outfits each week. Which of course then led to a spike in our laundry bill. I'm probably the only one that noticed, but I always felt like people were judging me for wearing the same outfit every time they saw me. My friends think I'm crazy, but I notice those types of things; so I can only imagine that other people do too!

After we got home from our weekend getaway to Savannah, we stopped in Tigertown to do a little shopping. I know I did a ton during our trip, but I wanted to get a few more things for our apartment! I convinced my husband to go into Ross with me and we looked around. I picked up a few home decor items and meandered my way over to the clothing racks. 

I don't know about you, but I absolutely hate shopping for myself. My husband is easy: v-neck shirts from Rue21 and khaki shorts from Kohls. He's the same size every time and those things will always match. I, on the other hand, range anywhere from a medium to an extra large in just about everything. It is impossible to buy clothes for myself and I can't remember a time that it wasn't. 

I picked up a couple things that looked like they'd fit and headed towards the fitting rooms. After trying everything on, only one shirt fit. No surprise there! It wasn't until I handed it to the cashier that I realized the tag read 2XL. Those of you that know me, know that is not my size. I had a mini panic attack before grabbing my stuff and heading out the door. 

A few days later, I wore my new shirt with some gray leggings and I felt the best I have in months. I actually asked my husband if we could go out to lunch, because I was so happy. I realized it doesn't matter what size my tags read. If I feel comfortable and feel good, then thats all that matters. 

The following weekend, I went to Office Max/Office Depot to print out Danielle Esplin's manuscript. There was just no way that I was printing out 332 pages on my home printer. But if you haven't read my review, just know it would have been 100% worth it! Anyways, Ross is right next door and I'm sure you see where I'm going with this :)

I went ahead and put the manuscript in my car and then walked into Ross. I immediately went back to the clothing racks and looked for the hangers labeled 2XL. I felt a little weird at first, but then I reminded myself of how happy I was in my newest shirt. I moved through the racks and piled up my cart. And when I say piled, I mean it! I had clothes in the cart, hanging off the seat, in the seat, and laying across the entire top of the cart. 

If you haven't been to Ross before, their fitting room limit is eight items. I can't even tell you how many trips I took just to try everything on. It took forever too, because I decided to send my husband a picture of every thing I tried on. That probably wasn't the best idea, but I figured he's the one that's always with me, so he should like them too. After I tried everything on, and got my husband's opinion, I narrowed it down to 13 shirts. I know. I know. It sounds like a lot, but it's really not when you only have a weeks worth of clothes to begin with. 

Below are my final picks and what I plan to pair them with! The reason I love all of these looks is because they are all flowy and comfortable. I'm still not 100% happy with my weight, but these clothes make me feel beautiful. And that's the goal isn't it?
