It’s nearing that time to face facts.
Belts are about to be replaced by elastic. Lots and lots of elastic.
Luckily, my sister has a group of friends who like to collectively give birth to a new child every 6 months or so (for the past four or five years) and they’ve hit a lull and graciously shared their stash with me. And one of our best friends in Dallas sent a whole box full of really great work clothes – she must have looked terrific – the clothes are really fabulous. It was a tad bit overwhelming at first with all the boxes and tubs and crates and piles. But I did a pile a night, trying them on, sorting through what would work and what wouldn’t, what needed ironing and what was ready to go. It’s tricky to try on clothes meant for a belly before you have much of one, but just as I was thinking to myself that I would never possibly need this item or that one, I would find one of my own from six years ago and remember, ah yes… there will come a time. So I mostly kept.
Here are the piles in progress.
…and the new closet with a whole new wardrobe.
A few more to sort / iron / try on.
