I am so excited to be going to Buffalo this week to visit my oldest and dearest friend. We have known each other for 33 years! I can’t believe it, we were 11 years old when I moved one house down from her. I am looking forward to the trip, but I am having such issues getting packed to go.
Today is Tuesday and I am leaving on Thursday, so I am starting to think about what I am going to pack. I need to make sure all my favorites are washed so I can pack them on Wednesday. This is a major issue for me because I own VERY few clothes. So, anything that I am going to pack I am going to need to wear for the few days that I am home. However, I can pack my maxi skirt, because I will likely not be wearing that this week. I would pack my trusty black pants, but I have to go to a client meeting tomorrow and will need to wear those. You know those are my go to pants whenever I have to go somewhere for work.
I actually went shopping this week and bought a new hoodie, some jeans and a white t-shirt. Anyone who knows me, knows that I absolutely hate shopping for clothes. The jeans that I bought are high waisted which the professionals say are great for people with a bigger tummy. I tried them on with the white T-shirt that I bought and it was terrible!!!! I like the jeans, but I will not be wearing them unless I have my nice big hoodie on.
You see I have a much disproportioned body type. All of my weight is carried in the midsection, so I have a hard time find shirts that look flattering. They are either too snug and I look the marshmallow man or they are too loose and I look like I am 6 months pregnant. Needless to say, fall is my favorite season, because I can wear jeans or yoga pants and hoodies! Unfortunately, while I am visiting my friend in Buffalo this week it is going to be in the high 70’s and low 80’s! So, no hoodies for me!
Now I am concerned on what I am going to wear for the 6 days I am there. My two travel days; I will likely wear yoga pants and a T-shirt due to airports always being cold. That leaves 4 days’ worth of clothes that I need to figure out. Okay I have one pair of black capri yoga pants that I can pack, a pair of gray capri pants and a pair of jean shorts. I am not a huge fan of the jean shorts, just because I feel like I do not look good in shorts.
Shirts is what I am worried about, to be honest. I have the new white T-shirt that I am going to pack, that I of course, can wear with any of the bottoms. I will back my black T-shirt that says “yeah no” on it, I also have an orange shirt that I wear sometimes that I can pack. I am definitely not a huge fan of orange, but it fits me so, I will pack it. Hopefully, one day it is a little bit colder than the rest and I can wear my new jeans with something. UGH! I got nothing. This is stressing me out!
My friend that I am going to visit is a beautiful and very fit woman and she always looks stunning. She told me that she would take me shopping for clothes while I am there, but I am kind of embarrassed. I mean she is probably a size 3 or something and I don’t even want her to know what fat ass size I am. I know she probably doesn’t care, but I can’t help but to think that way.
I am sure I will be sharing videos and pictures throughout the week, so you will be able to see the lame outfits that I have packed. In the meantime, answer me these questions. Do you struggle with finding clothes that flatter your figure? What do you pack when you go on vacation?
