I’m in a total wardrobe rut. One would think that right about now I would be shopping with abandon. I finally have a “real” job, and after a pregnancy and a move my closet* is as empty as it has ever been. I used to pore over the anthropologie catalogs and could list all of my favorite coveted dresses by their twee nicknames. And yet — right now, I find myself unable to get inspired to buy much of anything. I think this is mostly because I still feel a bit awkward and not back into ‘perfect’ shape, whatever what means. It’s also because I don’t feel like I have time to focus on shopping. Also, sometimes the options out there seem too infinite, and I just get decision fatigue. Do I try for an awesome deal on one of those designer bargain sites, try out a StitchFix, or just shop my usual (online) favorites?
After years of not really being excited about their offerings, I decided to place an order with Boden today. I looooove their baby clothes (seriously, ALL of my favorite Annabel outfits are Mini Boden!) but the women’s clothes always seemed a little . . . old and boring to me. Maybe now I’m getting old and boring, because I found a few things in their current lineup that looked nice. So I went for it.
BONUS: one order and I picked up some essentials for A, too 🙂 We’ll see how things fit, because their sizing seems a little different from my usual staples (J. Crew, Gap, etc).
* well, if we had a closet. But that’s a post for another day.
Where do you like to buy work clothes? I still love anthropologie, but I feel like I need more practical staple pieces right now.
