I just purchased a pair of pants.
I have the green ones; my husband bought them for me for Valentine’s Day. I practically live in them and really wanted (I told myself I needed) another pair. I used the excuse that they would be great for traveling – pack the two pairs, a skirt, and a pair of jeans and I will be ready for anything. It isn’t untrue, but I didn’t really need them. I also called them “gear”, since they are hiking pants. Plus, I wear them to work a lot – but let’s just call it like it is: they are pants. To make up for it, I am following the “one in one out rule” and donating three bottoms (a penalty pair and plus I still have to make up for the green pair).
Sigh. I hang my head in shame.
I also got swimwear. And I think I have been stretching the underwear exemption. I have purchased A LOT of bras, “undershirts” (which I totally plan on wearing alone during the summer), and I got a pair of shoes. Summer shopping – for that three weeks of nice weather we get.
I haven’t gotten any sewing done – school sucks up all of my free time. I will finish this current class tomorrow and then I start my capstone thesis course in a week – which will suck up another four months of my life.
Welp, better get back on track. At least my failing wasn’t an impulse buy, right? I mean, I wear the crap out of the green pants – pushing twice a week at work! (Oh, I also gave up on the second run of P333 – another failing). However, now that it is over, I keep reaching for the same tops – I must really like them! I go for them, because otherwise, I just stand there staring at my full (again) closet trying to figure out what to wear. I really do prefer the “less is more” route!
