My shopping experience!

Friday, August 22, 2014

I had to do some clothes shopping tonight because I needed clothes for my clinical rotation for school. I'm doing my psych rotation first and we are not allowed to wear our scrubs, we have to wear "business casual" clothes. First of all I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, and don't bother me with dress shoes. I don't get dressed up all that often. I was fortunate enough to find two pair of dress pants in my closet that fit me, yay! I also tried on a pair of 9/10 pants from my closet, they buttoned, but weren't comfortable, but at least they buttoned!

When I went shopping, I found myself not even attempting to reach for a size XL. I'm glad I didn't because the size L shirts fit me. I found two shirts and a pair of shoes. I'll go back in a few weeks when it starts to get cooler and hopefully find some long sleeve stuff too, I'm always cold.

I'm excited about this little victory. It made me feel good to be able to fit into a smaller size.

Thanks for reading and I hope you are having a great day!! Happy Friday emoticon

    WOO HOO, smaller sizes.... And there are so many cute outfits for size 9/10 & 12. Gone are your days shopping in the sea of flowered, sequin riddled, tent like, clothing I find myself drowning in. Nothing is cute in my department! Curious as to why your doing a Psych rotation, I wasn't aware nurses did that, strange they won't let you wear scrubs but then again counselors don't wear "doctor /nurse" attire because of the stigma attached to them. Patients seem to feel better about coming to counseling if they don't see themselves as "mentally sick."

    Also want to say, I'm a tee shirt and jeans girl too. Although dressing up very occasionally can be fun as long as I feel comfortable too.
