Default Breaking Out the Winter Clothes ...

So I know I've been gradually shrinking out of my summer clothes, but now that I've gotten into my winter clothes it's a bit of a shock. Pants that I could barely zip when I put them away last year are now way too baggy. My sweaters still 'fit' but I have to decide if they look good oversized ... my favorite one is now hanging down close to my knees when it used to barely cover my rear!

Despite the possible annoyance of having to buy smaller fitting winter clothes, I bet you're still pretty excited I can't wait to have that problem, I tell you what.

What a great "problem" to have! I'm down 31 pounds, and all my jeans from last year are too big. I bought one pair in a size smaller, but I'm hoping if I can hold out for a couple more weeks, I can go down one more size. I also bought a few shirts and sweaters a size smaller and found a few things in my closet that didn't fit or look nice last year, that I can wear now. I don't want to spend too much on clothes that won't fit for long, but I think I deserve a few things that actually look good on me. So do you! Happy shopping.

Over sized sweaters can be rocked with leggings and boots, just belt or scarf it to define a waist or lengthen the torso

Congrats, gotta love it! I was hoping for that this winter myself, but something . . . happened.

Don't forget that if you're in dire need of better-fitting clothes but don't have the budget for it, you can make some awesome finds at the thrift shops. They've been a lifesaver for me throughout my pregnancy, and I can't wait until I can shop for smaller sizes at them after the baby's here.

Good for you! Most of stuff I have stashed still doesn't fit cause my arms are too big. Enjoy! Hoping to have the same fun this spring!

I'm going to have to go thrift shopping. None of my pants fit. I figure winter we'll go into our cocoons (big sweaters, jackets and anything we can use to keep warm) and emerge as skinnier butterflys! I have noticed that with the weight I've lost I'm colder than I was.
