Something strange has happened to my clothes 😳

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

Yes,- it’s true- something very strange has happened to my clothes lately 😳. Many of my clothes doesn’t fit me anymore. They are actually to small 😳. How did that happen without me notice it? 🤔

Or….maybe it’s me, and not my clothes something strange has happened too?

I know it is a kind of joke to say the wardrobe shrunk the clothes. But you should not ignore the fact that something like this actually happens when you reach a certain age. The wardrobe act strange too during menopause. That’s for sure,- even my do.

One of ny favourite shorts for the Spring and summer,- and last summer I needed to use a belt in this. This summer I can’t even button it together.

I have noticed during the last months that some of my winter clothes was started to be a bit thigh “here and there”. But to be honest I thought maybe it was because I had wash them a bit to much, or in to to high temperature or something like that. And new washed and clean clothes also sometimes have the habit to be a bit to thigh in the beginning. But it’s not my clothes that has changed- it’s my body.

I found my clothes for the summer and….wow….there was at least half of them that was to small, to thigh. Didn’t fit my body at all and anymore. I can’t actually not use them. I can’t actually not get some of them on my body even when I’m trying, and if I get them on I had big challenge to get them of me, it felt like they was glued into my body 😳. It’s shorts and dresses, tops and trousers, even blouses and skirts. Phu! I was seriously not prepared for this.

And one of my favourite skirts,- I didn’t even manage to “move” it over my hips,- and last time I used this was in October 2021.

I know it is natural that the body is changing and also to put on some weight when we comes to a certain age,- but I was not quite yet prepared for this 😅. Like I mention I’m in the pre perimenopause, not menopause, and thought maybe this body changes came in the menopause, or after. But obviously not.

Last time I was on my bathroom weight I was a place between 56- 58 kilos, and I think that was maybe in December or January. I don’t remember, but it’s a while ago. And today I’m 63, 5 kilos. Where did they come from? I know it’s not much, but for my body it’s actually is. I have been over 60 kilos only 3 times in my life,- and that was during my pregnancies.

I’m not crying (yet) to put on weight. I was just a bit surprised over my thighs and hips, stomach and breasts, even my arms have increased in size without me even noticing it. And it all are a bit “rounder” in the “fashion” too. Even my ass has changed.  Or maybe it’s the hips?

I do take a look at my self in the mirror closely every day, as well as I see myself in photos too….but I haven’t notice this changes very much. But I can promise you I notice the changes when I was trying to find some summer clothes to put on my body……and couldn’t even manage to button them together. Or get them of my body when I had really squeezed my body into them.

I’m fine with this changes at the moment. But this is a bit new for me, the body, the weight, even to have clothes in my wardrobe that doesn’t fit me. So I need to get a bit use to this body changes,- and also for seriously start to work out. Not just mornings walks, and steps walks to the train station,- but now it is for real “back to business” to my earlier work out and exercises I did before.

Since my body “spreads out” a bit “here and there”, and my clothes shrink, I had to stop by a pharmacy today to check that I have not shrunk in height, that that one also had changed,- fortunately I am still 170 cm, and then I think 63,  5 kilos divided by the number of centimeters is perfectly ok.  Although there are obviously a few extra pounds over my thighs, hips, stomach and breasts.

I’m not sad over this body changes, actually the opposite,- because I have for so many years struggling with my weight and have to little kilos on my body. But I’m a bit sad over all the clothes that doesn’t fit me anymore. To get a new “summer wardrobe” is actually really not on my budget this summer. And I was not prepared for this body changes yet. But okay,- it is what it is 😊. I’m growing up to be a grown up and mature woman,- and I’m actually happy with my “new” body. I know it is not for all women during menopause to be happy for the extra pounds/ kilos that “shows up”,- but I allowed me to be happy for mine 😊.

I know some maybe think I shouldn’t be- but at the moment I need to admit that I do like this changes and like this kilos,- but I don’t need to put on to much more. It is “heavier” to “carry”,- I also notice that, so my body needs to be stronger now 😊. And luckily it is different second hand clothes stores in the area , so I can visit and see if I can find some new summer clothes for my summer wardrobe 🌞.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Yes,- the dress looks nice, button be honest, I actually can’t even walk or move in it- and to get it off,- phu! Seriously stress.

I need to admit that something very strange has happened to my wardrobe during the last months 😳. And obviously my body “spreads” a bit “here and there” too. Hips are changing, stomach too. Or maybe it is actually the clothes and not me ? 👗

A funny way to get some new fashion in the closet 😊 🧥👗

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I’m not to biggest shopper in the world, even I actually do like clothes, fashion and like to use clothes too 😅. And,- yes, I do like to dress myself up as well 😊

I like to feel well- dressed in clothes I like to wear. I don’t care very much about the “name” of the clothes, to be honest. As long as I feel comfortable I the clothes I’m using and wearing I’m happy 😊.

And there’s one kind of “shopping” I, as well as my daughter, really enjoy 😊. And that’s “second hand” “shopping”, or it’s actually not shopping at all 😅. It’s actually when people “clean up” their closet for clothes they don’t use anymore and they want to give them away …. for example to my daughter and me 😊.

I’m not sure why I like this kind of “way” to get new clothes better then go to a fancy store, but for me it is actually more fun to get some bags with use clothes that people don’t want to have, use or ware anymore, then go to a fashion shop. It’s a bit like a “secret treasure chest” with surprise of various garments. And I don’t know what kind of clothes I will find either. In general it’s great clothes. Some fit, some do not fit, both in size and style.

And to be honest, I do not do this, get “second hand clothes”, to save the environment, or in a way recycle, or save money, while that is exactly what I do.  But I like second hand clothes just because I like it.  Very simple and straightforward 🥰. I think it’s a very fun way to get new fashion and style in my wardrobe 😊.

The clothes who not fit in style or size we actually deliver to second hand stores, so hopefully some other people can have some joy with the clothes we are not going to use 😊. Hopefully some other people will have the same fun and joy with the second hand clothes as we have 😊.

Since I was a child I have really enjoyed this way of “shopping”. I remember I had some cousins that was a bit older then me, and when they gave away clothes and shoes they didn’t use anymore because it all was to small, I was so excited to take a look in the different bags. And in general there was always a lots of nice clothes and shoes I wanted to weare and use 😊. I remember my mam called it for ” to inherit clothes or take over used clothes”, –  and that’s actually exactly what it is. And why not do that, use clothes like that, when the clothes are still in good fashion, stylish, function and good shape 😊 ?

Also when I became older and my friends had a “clean up” in their closet with clothes they didn’t want to use anymore, they “delivered” bags with clothes to me. Loved it, and I still love it 🥰.

When my daughter became older she started to have the same joy and enthusiasm as me to get used clothes from friends and family 😊. I’m not sure why, but maybe because she did grow up with me and did see my joy for “second hand clothes” ? 😊 Any way,- I’m actually very happy she feel the same enthusiasm for second hand clothes as I do 😊.

I’m not sure why I like to get bags with used/ second hand clothes so much, but I really do. Maybe because I don’t need to go to the store? And I can try out the outfits home in peace? 😊 And because it feels like “suprice bags” with clothes? Well,- it’s actually “suprice bags” with clothes,- and I like nice surprises 🥰.

2019

I think around half of my clothes in my closet are probably “second hand” clothes. Clothes I have “inherit clothes or take over used clothes” from other people, friends or family 😊.

Some days ago a colleague of my daughter did deliver a couple of bags with second hand clothes to her, and me and my daughter had fun and cozy “fashion shopping” in our living room 😊. And we both got some new both winter- clothes and summer- clothes. We felt both so happy, lucky and grateful 😊. It’s just so fun to get new fashion in my closet this way, and it’s actually fun that me daughter enjoy this kind of get “new” clothes too 😊.

My lovely daughter, Mathilde,- sourrende with “second hand” clothes in our living room 😊

I’m a bit more sceptical now at days to take over used shoes then when I was younger. But not because of fashion or style, but because of use and a “responsibility” I have for my back, legs and feet. But if the shoes hasn’t been used very much and they suits me, I’m very grateful for a couple of shoes or three too as long as I can use them and they are doing me feet, back and body well 👠👢.

Do you like to get new fashion and style, “new” clothes to your wardrobe this way? Second hand clothes, “old” clothes that are still in good fashion, stylish, function and good shape 😊 ? For me this is the funniest way to “renew” my wardrobe, get some “new” fashion and stylish clothes 😊. But I do shop clothes too, now and then 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog 🧡

See you soon 😊

Most of the “second hand” clothes I did got or found in the “second hand bags” my daughter brought home 😊,- and my daughter got her part too 😊.

Some days ago my daughter brought home a couple of bags with “inherit clothes or take over used clothes”, or “second hand clothes” if you prefer 🥰. And to be honest,- to get bags with second hand clothes it’s a very funny way to get “new” fashion in the wardrobe. Well,- at least for me and my daughter. And why not,- when the clothes are still in good fashion, stylish, function and good shap 🥰.
