While I could continue to remain off for the rest of the year, returning in January 2012, I have other plans.
|Depiction of me. Found here.|
Anyway, in anticipation of returning to work in two weeks, and being anxious about this, I've been doing some serious online clothes shopping. I feel like it's the first day of school, and I'm nervous people will be looking at me (they will). Therefore, I'm going to wear new clothes and pretend like they're admiring them... ha.
These are the things I bought:
I bought this:
I love this one- looks cozy:
I actually have last years version of this one, in navy....
And, since I love it so much, I bought it in this colour too. LOVE.

Um, I realize I'm quite boring. (Don't judge me). Everything in my closet is either a shade of brown, grey, black or pink. I have to occasional navy... Oh well, at least my wardrobe matches my mood most days. ha! Wanna know why I kinda love these things even though I'm SUPER boring? Because I can wear them when I'm pregnant. Note how this all comes back to me going off on maternity leave again. See graphic of the horsie above. I'm f'ing crazy.
This is essentially the same stuff I've worn for the past 5 years- camisoles and cardigans. Professional enough for work (we're business casual, and also I don't give a fuck), yet interchangeable for home/weekends... Um, I look the same.all.the.time. opps.
And remember when I was asking about what I should do about clothes for back to work? This is it. I can wear a few of my pre-pregnant pants, though I wouldn't say they look amazing. But I'm not buying new ones just yet. I kinda figure people will be gentle with my appearance, I mean I am returning 8 months too early, so if anyone's going to say anything (they won't, they're scared of me I think!), I'll point that out. That will be nice and AWKWARD.
I plan to continue to wear the same maternity jeans with the band folded over. They're the only ones which fit without a giving me a muffin top, and I only wear jeans on casual Friday's and on the weekends (where you'll usually find me in yoga pants). Thus, no need to purchase new designer denim just yet. I actually hope not to fit into designer denim again for several years. You know, after consecutive babies and my subsequent tummy tuck (and boob lift. I can't quite figure out why my boobs aren't cute anymore. I breast fed for less than a week. What a terrible joke).
Anyone seen any cute (body-friendly?) clothes lately?
