Mama needs new shoes

No, seriously, I do.

I need brown boots, I need brown close toed dressy work shoes, I could use another pair of black work shoes and maybe a pair in tan or another neutral color.

I also need some new gray dress pants and another pair of black pants.

I need button-down shirts and (oh gosh, the thought kills me)  maybe a belt or two.

I’m starting a new job soon and need to really start dressing nicer. I need to go shopping.

I just don’t want to. I, right now, today, just don’t want to do it. I don’t think I’m all that great at putting stylish outfits together and I don’t look forward to spending a lengthy time in front  of mirrors in my underwear trying to find things to look good on my pale and pasty self.

High school me would be deeply disappointed in this turn of events. I have money and a good reason to shop but I just don’t want to.

    Now is the time to shop. I just did the same thing, new work clothes because I need to look nicer with my new job. I hit so many end of the season sales…it was AWESOME! So for the financially savvy part of you, let the shopping begin. But being one who also doesn’t see the sun much anymore, pasty is not flattering. You could always close your eyes while putting on the clothes 🙂

    The beauty of shoe shopping is that you don’t have to stand in front of a mirror in your underwear looking at your pasty mid-winter self. In fact, I think they frown on that in the shoe store. So when you’re ready to hit DSW you let me know, it sounds like it might be a good place to start!
