I know I'm really late in doing this, but I finally went through my closet and put all my sweaters away. I also found a whole bunch of summer close I totally forgot about.
I've been getting in a rut lately with the clothes that I've been wearing and almost broke down and went shopping more than once. I used to do a big clothes shopping trip in the summer and then again in the winter. I have tons a clothes and if I can lose that last 5 - 10 pounds that I want to lose, most of the clothes will fit me really well.
Since I'm determined to lose this weight, but not determined enough to stick to a diet, I haven't let myself do any shopping. I don't want to buy any more clothes in the size I am now, I just want to fit comfortably into the cute clothes I have.
And I'm glad I didn't let myself shop, because it's amazing all the summer clothes I found in containers in my closet. I'm really excited about a pair of knee length jean shorts. Fridays are jeans day at work and all I have are capri's or shorts that are too short for work.
I also found a couple really cute spaghetti strap dresses one of my friends gave me last year when she cleaned out her closet. I never had a chance to wear them. Mr. Ripples and I are going on a movie date Saturday afternoon, so I'm going to wear one of the dresses. He always appreciates the effort when I get dressed up for one of our dates.
