Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

Heading back to work recently posed a new challenge for me, my work clothes seem to fit a bit snugger than they used to. I guess that what happens when your sitting around the house in shorts and t-shirts all the time. So, I had to go shopping today to grab a couple of things. I need to replenish my stock of dress clothes in my closet. No more jeans for me, at least not between the hours of 8-5. There is no casual Friday where I work. So, it's dress clothes five days a week. By the time the weekend rolls around, I am ready for the running suits and sneakers.

I found a few things that look comfortable, but still professional enough to wear to work. But, I wasn't totally thrilled about the lack of color and style choices.  I wear the blacks and browns in the winter. When spring and summer comes along, I like to wear some color, like cool blues, yellows, pinks. But, there are a lot browns, cool tones and odd prints out.

Another problem in shopping for work clothes, most businesses don't allow sleeveless or low cut blouses. When your shopping for spring and summer work clothes, there are a lot of low cut blouses. Making it difficult to find something to wear to work. I don't agree with wearing them to work either, it's not the place for them. I just wish clothing designers kept that in mind when designing clothes. It's a little annoying that you have to find matching camisols to put under your blouses. Unless you go with the button down, which I am not a real big fan of. Shopping isn't fun anymore, it's too much work.  I did find a really cute pair of heals though. I can never get tired of shopping for shoes.
