After looking around the mall this week, I just had to see who all is on the same page as me. I am SO tired of the winter looks - dark colors are bringing me down and I am ready for some brights, stripes and dots. When do the summer lines come out full circle?! I did notice today that GAP is starting to have some summery things online, but not to the extent that I am looking for. (even though I can't shop it, I still want to see it)
I have switched my nail polish over to spring colors and am loving the tangerine shades. I got it on my toes during a pedicure and think it's a perfect warm weather color (even if it is just wishful thinking warm weather), so I picked up Boozy Brunch from the Loreal Color Riche line. While I was at target I also picked up 2 new swim tops. I remember years ago when the target swimsuits were made for the skinniest people, and love that they now carry larger sizes for normal people. Since my boobs keep growing I needed XL tops and these were on sale for $14. I plan to wear bikinis while still pregnant (please, no stretchmarks yet!!) and then switching to a ruched one piece right after while my belly is nice and flabby!
I am also thinking that my baby will be better dressed than me.....I can't and dont really want to buy anything for my post partum timeframe until it is here, so I am kind of stuck with what I have until the summer. I went on my last shopping trip and picked up some cute cardigans and one pieces from Baby GAP, 4 bras from A Pea in the Pod (expensive but I really needed some good bras to carry me from now until I am done nursing. I am in a bra 24/7 now and have to say it is actually quite comfy with this line) and the above swimsuits.
I really am getting more motivated to try to slim down my thighs - this baby has brought out some cellulite and my decrease in running has definitely not helped it out. Daily squats, lunges and lifts have begun and I just need to keep focused. I want to make my post partum recovery/weight loss as easy as possible, and not look like a whale at the beach this spring.
I think that I am ready to take a shopping break - I seem to have enough of everything as of now and will welcome the extra $$ to our bank accounts. Do you ever have to take a look and adjust your spending? I think it's a good thing to do even if you have more than enough money to cover your costs.
