With the official start of fall this past week, I decided to finally start making the transition.
I started with the easy stuff. The fun stuff. Like the wreath and the flag--because nothing says I am ready for fall like the changing of the yard decor.
Then I moved on to transitioning the babies' closet because I realized I would feel like a negligent mommy sending her kids to daycare in tank tops in October (even if it is still around 80 degrees during the day here). This task was a bit trickier because I didn't take advantage of last year's clearance sale to stock up on winter clothes, and I missed the Moms of Multiples Fall/Winter sale.
So today Marty and I hit the stores and tried to find some good deals. Between Kohl's and Old Navy, the babies now have some new cute fall/winter clothes.
And minus Marty's grumbling, this part of the summer-to-fall transition was pretty easy and pretty fun, too.
But, then I looked down at my juice-stained shirt and flip flops and realized the yard and the babies aren't the only ones in need of a seasonal update.
And I started to panic--ever so slightly.
Last winter I blamed my disheveled appearance 6 month old twins. Will that excuse work as well a year later?
While I love buying baby clothes, I feel totally inept when it comes to buying clothes for myself, especially now with my post-twin pregnancy body.
Everything clings to my middle.
I feel guilty when I splurge on clothes for myself, so I need to find good deals, which takes time I don't have.
Anyone out there have some fashion tips for this fall? Must-have items? Best brands? Best places to shop? If you could see me right now, you would know I need all the help I can get!
