I felt a little nervous about trying to get back into regular clothes because I know I am not even close to being my regular size yet so I have been making due with the few pieces that do fit right now and I have avoided shopping for bottoms at all costs. I have to admit, it has been a little disappointing when I put on a pair of pants and they still don’t fit, so I just stopped doing it and living in the same few pairs that fit. But I know they will with time. I just got clearance to work out again to I hope I can get rid of the last 8 pounds pretty easy.

 I myself don’t like to go crazy because of a sale,Throughout the year I make a list of things I want or need and then create wish lists at my favorite sites and grab things as they go on sale. I like to approach the sale that way so I avoid the impulse purchases. I have a whole sales shopping strategy guys. and it usually works pretty good in my favor.  Take these shoes and the bag for example, they are both a sale season score. I had been watching them all season long and I kept a close eye on them, set up notifications to alert me when they went on sale and I was able to score them both over 50%.

While everyone was out shopping the Nordstrom sale, I had a little time to sneak in to Saks Off 5th one day (mostly because its right to my whole foods) and found this cute cold shoulder blouse. I love that it has classic elements like the pin stripes, crew neck and the peplum flare. Boy does it feel good to wear something that is on trend again!
