I love buying clothes for Paige and Parker. It's lovely dressing them in little outfits and lets face it kids clothes are so much cuter than adult clothes.
When it comes to buying clothes for myself I come up with every excuse in the book to avoid doing so. I have clothes that I wore when I was 15/16. That's 10 years ago. I also find that after having children i'm even worse at clothes shopping. Maybe it's because I don't feel 100% confident in my body, not that I ever have. Maybe it's because I can think of better things to spend the money on.
The one time I let myself go clothes shopping for me is special occasions, Christmas or birthday's are a favourite. Although Mark did let me have a shopping spree for our first wedding anniversary which was lovely. Even when I do go shopping for me I have to shop the sales. I can never justify paying full price. Is anyone else the same? I love to sit at home, in comfy pj's because I wear those 90% of the time, and have a quick look online to get an idea of things I might like. You can also get some great discounts online from shops like ASOS. It does make shopping online all that more tempting.
Saying that, I do prefer online shopping for clothes as I can then try them on at home without rushing. I hate going into changing room in the shops and trying clothes on. The curtains are always too small to cover the opening or the queues are miles long. Most of the time I have the children with me too so always have to rush.
I love Primark purely for the value. They also have some amazing stuff and are great for basic items. I live in there t shirts. They have a wide choice of colours and styles too. I love River Island for jeans. I always find that they last a really long time and are great quality. They also aren't too expensive which is the main thing I go for. My most recent purchase was a gorgeous Parka coat from Boohoo. I justified this purchase because I didn't want to freeze through the winter.
When shopping for new clothes I don't head towards the latest trends. I wear what I feel comfortable in and what I think suits me. There's no point in wearing the latest trends if it doesn't suit your body shape.
I'm trying to be a little more daring when it comes to outfits but I just find jeans and a top far too practical and comfortable.
What do you feel most comfortable in?
