Now that summer has passed us by and cooler fall weather is here to stay, I’ve had to pull my winter clothes down from the attic. To my dismay, I found that the hot air in the attic has shrunk my clothes to the point they no longer fit.
Do you see that white area across my chest? That would be my bra, shining through, for all the world to see. Those 100 degree days obviously did a number on my winter wear, shrinking my shirts two sizes too small.
And my sleeves? Shrunken down to where they are too tight to contain my bulging arm muscles.
My jeans have obviously fallen victim to changes in their molecular makeup. I swear these pants fit just fine last fall.
See those distressed threads? My son mistakenly thought that I had gained enough weight to split my pants. Absurd, I tell you! He obviously doesn’t understand the laws of physics. Or gravity. Or chemistry. Or whatever.
As my clothes have apparently gone through some bizarre metamorphosis, rendering them useless, I am left with no other option than to bring back the oh-so-sexy toga for the fall season.
Satin is hot, right? Right?!
On a more serious note, I may (or may not) have gained a few pounds, resulting in a whole fall wardrobe that does not fit my current shape. Although the satin toga look may suit me well, I’m currently attending a boot camp to work on toning up my body and hopefully lose those pesky pounds I’ve gained since last year. I’m posting weekly about my journey, please feel free to follow along and share your tips for weight loss and healthy living through the holiday season!
Did the drastic summer heat shrink your clothes as well? Do you have a favorite piece of clothing that you adore that just doesn’t seem to be as flattering as it was last year?
