One week left. So close I can see the end. I already know what I'm going to wear first when can access the rest of my closet again: my trouser jeans, flip flops, and blue and white striped oxford. So excited.
Both of these outfits left me feeling mediocre, but nonetheless dressed for work. That is the end goal right? The looking pretty and feeling good part are definite pluses, but somehow both of these elements slipped out of my life this weekend and I'm still waiting for them to return. Hey, everyone needs a vacation from time to time.
Although most challenge participants are only giving up shopping for 30 days, I'm still on my clothes shopping diet for seven more months. To be honest, I really don't miss the shopping. I have this thing where I don't like to spend money because sometimes it's just inconvenient. Driving all the way to the mall to buy a $5 trinket from F21? Too lazy. Paying for shipping from my home computer? Not worth it. Half the time I don't shop because I'm just too darn lazy to. There are very few things that I've thought to myself "if only I wasn't on this diet, I would have to have that" (you know of one of them). Why is it that we shop then? To get the latest look? Meh. To replace a basic/classic that's worn out? Yeah, but I loath the hunt for the perfect replacement. For retail therapy? I can identify with that one.
How do you feel about shopping? Why do you do it (or not)?
