So I got new clothes!

Yep! Brand new clothing! All for me!

This may not be a big deal to you, but to me it's huge! We have been on an extremely tight budget since Hoss was born (2 1/2 years ago). So tight I have probably only purchased myself 6 articles of clothing since his birth. Literally, 6. Five shirts and a pair of jeans, which ended up being way too big, but I kept them because I'm lazy like that.

I was in desperate need of new clothing. I was literally down to only 5 okay pairs of pants for work and a pair of jeans which would fall down if I walked (which is typically required of me in a day).

Since I do have a dress code at work to wear "business casual" I needed clothes to look professional. Having holes in my pants does not look too professional.

Thus, when our tax return came in and after we repaired the brakes on my car I went shopping. Online that is. (Hello, I work full-time and have a kiddo. When do I have time to actually go to the store and shop?)

I do try to be frugal, so it was a little difficult to spend money on myself, but I did it. And I'm so glad I did. If you are a plus size woman and need a change from the normal three stores which carry plus size women's clothing, check out Old Navy.com. They sell plus size clothing online only.

And I LOVE THEM!

I got these pants.

And these.

And these jeans!

Oh, and I had to get shoes. Really, I needed them, I have no sandals for the summer. So far I have only purchased one pair, from Payless for $9.99! (I actually went to the store and bought these.)

Hopefully it won't be another 2 1/2 years before I buy myself clothes again.

Isn't it fun to buy new clothes? I'm needing to go get a couple pairs of shorts.
