Fashion Not-Nista

....fall is here.

I usually welcome it with open arms. What could be better than big fuzzy sweaters and warm socks? My body type was definitely created with the colder seasons in mind. I've never been a big fan of exposing my skin, I'd rather just cover it up.

This fall, as I'm dragging my warm clothes from under the bed and from the storage room, I'm finding stuff just a little too snug. And these are the clothes I bought last fall because all my others were too tight. Uh oh. I am totally blaming this on all the fertility meds and months of reading deeply into the "no vigorous exercise" and "stay off your feet" attached to one year of nearly back to back treatments. Am I justified? I think so!

So, my clothes don't fit. And I don't want to buy any because I HOPE AND PRAY that I'll be needing to buy maternity clothes pretty damn quick. This leaves me with a few skirts and pants for work that aren't particularly comfy and definitely aren't the cutting edge of fashion.

Have I mentioned that I work on a college campus? I have huge windows in my office where I get to see a daily, day-long parade of 18-22 year-olds flaunting their tiny waistlines and hot off the runway outfits (its an expensive private school - daddy has big pockets). I'm not even sure I can pull off the fashion trends. Like this one:

Does any one else have doubts about ankle boots with skirts? It just seems wrong. Or am I just showing my age? I did have someone ask if my intern was my daughter (whaaaaa? She's 24!!!).

Seriously, I think ankle boots are just wrong. Skirt. Pants. Formal Dress. You name it they don't belong with it.

Ooh, cool blog layout!

I hate the stuff that is fashionable right now. Ugly prints! It reminds me of a cross between the 70's and 80's.

yup. I've gained 15 lbs since starting the fert meds. And everybody says, "well you'll gain a lot more if you get pg...!" Well, I'm not pg and I've gained 15 lbs! thank goodness for fall, with fuzzy sweaters and thick sox ;-) BTW, I've added u to my blog list so I can watch you get ur BFP!

I'm too fat now to fit into last year's warm clothes. Luckily (I think) it's still close to 90 degrees in Dallas, so I won't need them for a while. I'm also hoping that I need to buy maternity clothes instead!

And icky-yucky-gross to ankle boots. Yeah fine, I used to have a pair. In the 80s!! Some things need to stay in the past. Especially ugly things!

My feelings were also quite hurt to find that my fall clothes from last year are too snug. Not cool. Not a bit.
