Do you recognize that outfit over there to the left?
If you don’t, then you probably haven’t seen me recently.
I hereby acknowledge that I have been wearing the same outfit over and over and over again for the past few weeks.
I have a major clothing conundrum: I had a baby 3.5 months ago.
Most of my cute pre-preg clothes don’t fit. I can *squueeezzzeee* into them, but squeezing is no fun at all.
So I’m left with my one pair of Anoname jeans and a variety of interchangeable camisoles with my black or navy hoodie on top (Those hoodies are awesome, by the way…I bought them from NY & Company about a year and half ago…and now I wish I had one in every color of the rainbow.).
That outfit is what I wear EVERYWHERE. It fits, it looks nice, and it provides easy nursing access. It’s great, but I am getting a little tired of it since it’s pretty much the only outfit I wear out.
I wish I were joking.
Fortunately, I have a Clothes Swap planned for later this month, which could prove to be a real boon.
I also just ordered Jillian Michaels’ “30-Day SHRED,” which I have heard is a frighteningly intense workout. In fact, one of my regular readers told me she lost 22 pounds in 30 days from it. Impressive. It could be just what I need to get back into the clothes in my closet.
I’ve been eyeing some cute new summer clothes too:
- 3″ chino short by J.Crew ($29.50)
- Women’s Regular Premium Denim Skirt by Lands’ End ($19.99)
- Linen drawstring skirt by Victoria’s Secret ($29.50)
- Fringe Short by Victoria’s Secret ($29.50)
Summer clothes require shaved legs, of course. Which isn’t a problem since I prefer my legs to be smooth and silky…
That said, I don’t have a lot of time to “fuss” over my legs. I need a razor that will allow me to shave quickly, easily, without nicks…in and out of the shower. Remington recently sent me the smooth&silky WDF-3600 rechargeable wet/dry razor for review – and I really like it. It’s easy to hold, fast as fast can be, and it’s pretty too. I use it almost every day and have no complaints. I haven’t attempted to shave anything but my legs with it, but it does come with a bikini “guard.” It probably doesn’t shave quite as close as a plain old stick razor with shaving cream, but I really don’t have time for that (anyone relate?). Besides, I’m not trying to win a contest for “smoothest legs of the century” or something. I just want to be able to wear skirts and shorts without sporting stubble.
WIN IT! One winner will receive a Remington smooth&silky WDF-3600 rechargeable wet/dry razor ($39.99). To enter, leave any topic-related comment on this post prior to Wednesday, July 15 at midnight (Don’t forget to follow the rules…all generic comments like “Enter me!,” “Love it,” and “Cool stuff!” will be disqualified.).
*UPDATE* The winner is #28 Amanda. Congratulations!
