I’ve given myself a shopping ban. I have several reasons for this.
1) I’m trying to loose some weight, why shop for a changing body?
2) I haven’t totally figured out my personal style.
3) I’m still breast feeding my son and any new clothes would have to be suitable for this.
4) I’m going to the US and Canada in April and May and I’d rather shop there than here.
The way for me to get new clothes before my journey is to use up my fabric stash, so I’m starting with that now. I don’t worry too much if it fits into a certain style, since I have what I have. But I hope I’ll get some good garments out of it.
First up, a hat!
I do have, at the moment, two exceptions. Sandals, which would be good to have on the trip, and a swimsuit since the people we are staying with have a pool.
