We went up to LL Bean Outlet this afternoon to check out jeans. I had a gift card credit.
They had a ton of clothes on sale @ 50% off! There was a small section of jeans, and I immediately picked out a couple of size 12 tall (and med tall). I had figured out previously that the classic fit was the best for my shape.
And then on a whim, I thought, why not try on a size 10!
Side note: I was a little bummed out the other day when reading a forum post. Other girls that were approximately the same weight and height as me (139 lbs, 5’8″) and they were wearing a size 8 or 10. I couldn’t understand why I was still wearing a size 12.
So, anyway, back to the size 10. In the dressing room, I tried a couple of 12’s and there was wiggle room, so on go the size 10. Bam! Yes! It fit very nicely, with even a little room to spare! And mind you, this was after lunch at Chipotle Grill!
Of course, at this point, I went back to the jeans shelves, and tried to find more size 10 Tall. I found one more and was thrilled that they together they were only about $18! Bargain shopper!
I also found a cute little spring jacket for $8.50 and a size small turtleneck for $5.
It was a great day! I am so happy that I’m wearing a size 10 now! If I remember correctly, I was in a size 7/8 in my 20’s, and I don’t anticipate that I’d ever go that low, so a size 10 is very special! :)
