Shopping - 911

As a women, I want to look pulled together and nice when I go out.  But I am 38, and I am having more shopping trouble than ever.  I don't want to look like I am dressing too young, but I want to look like I am in this decade.  One of my favorite shows is "What Not To Wear."  Love that show!  It really is not about just the clothes.  It's much more -  how you feel about yourself.   It's about rebuilding women's self confidence.   I think I need to nominate myself for the show.  I know I would LOVE it.

Anyway, I have bought several things lately, but have not worn them.  I bought these adorable shorts from Old Navy.  They are cute and were not expensive at all.  But I don't know if they are too short.  I would wear a 3/4 sleeve shirt with them to try and balance them out.  But I live in a small town, and I don't want people talking about my short - shorts!  Ha!  I am short - only 5'2 - so maybe I could get away with them. I tried them on and did the "finger -tip" test.  That's what we do at school.  They did pass.  The shorts fell to my fingertips.  Ha!  I think before I take them back I will try them on for Eric and see if he makes a comment.  No comment = good.  What do you think?

I also read several fashion blogs that shop at Anthropologie.  I love their clothes, but the prices are too much for me.  That being said, I decided to order one top and just see.  Of course, it was packaged nicely.  But I don't know if it's worth the price.  It also fit weird on me.  So I guess I will send it back.  Oh well, I wanted to try.

The top is beautiful and would go with a lot.  I just think maybe it's too expensive to keep.  So now since I am kid free today, I am off to see what I can find for fall.  Since I am a teacher, I usually slack off on dressing in the summer.  Wish me luck!

I love to watch What Not to Wear too. I would love to have a shopping spree and someone to help me put together outfits.
I think the shorts are cute and don't look too short. Old Navy is one of my favorite stores. We also have a great Gap outlet! Have fun shopping!

Those shorts are cute! I saw those at Old Navy the other day. I am loving the "longer" shorts that are in style now. This is the first summer in about 7 or 8 years that I've worn shorts. I used to be capris only but I like these new styles.

I love those green and white polka dot shorts! So cute! I just ordered a couple of shirts and a cardigan from Old Navy. Love them!

I love What Not to Wear too!
