After staying up SUPER late last night to do work, I’m all caught up on all things job-related. So, when I finished up my visits today, I decided to do what EVERY girl does with spare time away from home… SHOP! I also conveniently have extra space in my suitcase this trip, so the planets must have aligned appropriately for this outing!
And, because I had extra time, I decided to venture out to new shopping locations. I’d mentioned in previous blogs that I’d hope to one day shop at Loft and White House Black Market. I knew that there was one not far from my last client visit, so I decided to try it out!
I was a little disappointed by what I found, honestly. They had a lot of cute short dresses for summer that these legs aren’t quite ready for and their pants sizes only went up to a 14. Hmmpf. BUT… I found a couple of cute tops and sent them back to the fitting rooms to wait for me to get done looking.
Because I was feeling adventurous, I decided to also take back two pairs of capris that were on sale, both in a size 14. I mean, I’m wearing a 14W from Lane Bryant… that has to be close right? Knowing this could be a disaster, I headed back to the dressing room.
Well, there were things that didn’t fit. I had grabbed a few tops optimistically in a large, and well…. they WERE TOO BIG! Had to go down to a MEDIUM. And, the capris… well, they half fit. One pair fit and one pair was a little snug. I went ahead and bought BOTH!
