Now, those that know me know that the mall is not actually my favorite place. Unless I'm going to the bookstore or the movies, I would actually prefer to avoid the place. I think it has been 6 months since I have last shopped for clothes, so it was getting high time. I'm telling you, I tend to wear pants until they have no hope left. I've actually had 2 pair in the last couple of months finally wear through while I was wearing them. It just so happens that I am a professional, and I've been told I look younger than I am. It doesn't boost patient's confidence a lot when I wear faded polos and fraying pants. It's time for new clothes.
I spent a lot more than $5. A lot. But there were some good deals and I was happy. I found Ann Taylor pants on sale for $30 each. GAP jeans for about the same. I spent about $100 at one store and got 3 shirts, 1 cami, 1 pair of shorts and 2 pairs of cropped pants (dress code doesn't allow capris, so that's the best I could do). If I'm going to drop $100 at a store, I want at least that many items to show for it! I also got shoes. I am not a huge shoe person, but I needed some new ones. Now I have some that I can wear with a lot of different things. And, after 4 years, I finally got a new pair of work out shoes. Any good PT will tell you that you should really replace your work out shoes about once a year. I'm glad to be able to tell you that I follow my own advice so well.
I'm actually excited for work on Monday. (Not that I want it to come sooner, please don't come sooner.) And, I don't have to do laundry today. This shopping stuff is awesome.
