Oh no!

So I bought a pair of new pants the other day. Just one pair of pants and 2 pair of shorts were my goal. I'm trying to lose weight, so I didn't want to spend a ton on clothing. I'm also trying to limit the amount of clothes I have. Who really wears 30 t-shirts? When we got to the store the hubs said "You always take a long time to try on clothes." Fine. Challenge accepted. So I went into the fitting room with my 20+ items and tried them all on under 20 minutes. That's less than a minute per item. I would put the item on and quickly check if it fit in the right places before tearing it off for another item. I got 2 great pairs of shorts. They feel like I'm wearing pajamas! I've been wearing them every day since shopping. But today, I felt like wearing jeans.
So I grabbed my new jeans and put them on. They felt really good in the fitting room, I was surprised that the first pair I tried on fit. So I pull them up, button them, and realize.... I'm still standing on the pant legs. They're too long. Way too long. I grabbed "Long" pants. Anyone who knows me knows that I might have long legs, but I'm still a shortie. So, boo. I'm going to have to have them tailored. And lesson learned, no more rushing in the dressing room.


  1. That's how I buy shoes. When I got new shoes for work I walked into Payless, grabbed the first pair of closed toe flat black shoes, tried them on, walked the aisle, and went and bought them.

    Clothes are harder, though seeing as how the only clothing articles I have bought in over a year are um, tshirts.
