I went shopping today. Now, the fact that I went shopping isn't in itself all that unusual. What is interesting is that I went shopping for clothes – for me.
The weather has gotten nice here so I thought I'd head out and buy some spring like t-shirts, blouses and such to welcome the nicer weather.
Unfortunately the clothing industry here in Canada doesn't seem to make ANYTHING that's appropriate for a woman of my age and size.
For the record, I'm in my 40's, about 5' 6" and a size 10.
But, I don't need my tummy showing when I'm dressed – thank you very much.
I also don't need pants that climb up to my arm pits.
And black? Okay I like to wear some black, but does every piece of clothing for my age group have to be black? I'm fair, bordering on pale – I NEED a LITTLE color.
I have no idea what I'm going to wear over the next few weeks. Except perhaps my husband's cast off t-shirts and an old pair of jeans.
