Why I hate trying on clothes in the changing room

I do 98% of my shopping online. Online shopping is convenient for me and it suits my current lifestyle as I hardly ever go anywhere. I rather pay a delivery charge and try the clothes in the comfort of my home, than head off to a shopping mall. However there are times when I have to go into a store to shop. I prefer buying shoes and jeans in store because I need to make sure they fit. The only time I shop for these online is when I know for a fact that they would suit because I have bought similar pieces/pairs before from the same store. So what happens when I have to go into a mall to shop and use the changing rooms? I just do it and get it over it quickly.

I am sure I am not the only one that hates trying on clothes in the changing room. I have had a few people tell me they rather try on clothes at home and return them if they don’t fit than use the changing rooms. It is strange that many of us feel that way about the changing room. So what is the deal with the changing rooms?

Why I hate trying on clothes in the changing room

These are the reasons why I rather over trying on clothes in changing rooms –

 

I feel exposed

There is little privacy in changing rooms. I find the curtains don’t do a good job and I feel exposed when trying on clothes. I also have this weird feeling that someone could mistakenly/deliberately open the curtains.

 

They are always too small

As a twin mummy, I am usually out and about with the kids. Trying on clothes in small changing rooms with 2 very active toddlers is not ideal. The rooms are usually even too small for just one person, not to mention going in with kids.

 

Waiting for a free room

I am not the most patient person. My entire patience is used up with the twins so I have little or non left for anything else. Hanging around waiting for a free room to try on clothes feels like a waste of valuable time.

Changing rooms are useful

Despite my reservations, I know how useful changing rooms can be. They are great for when you need to ensure that stunning dress fits great or that new brand has the jeans you have your eye on in your size. But I still avoid them when I can. I rather just try my finds at home and buy from trusted brands I know.

 

What are your thoughts on this? Do you avoid the changing rooms like I do?

Outfit Post – Time for Spring Fashion

*PR sample and Affiliate links.

We were away for 2 weeks holidaying in London and Essex. The Kiddies were on holiday and we decided to make the most of the time we had. It was a fantastic holiday. We did all sorts of things and I am only just recovering from all the fun and excitement, which is why I have not been posting as often as I usually do. Entertaining 2 very busy children is a full-time job. I hardly had time to do anything else.

The holiday is over now, and the twins are back in school, so it is business as usual for me now. I took these outfit photos last week in Essex. The weather was good and I had a lovely garden to make use off. So I made the most of it. Time for some spring fashion photos.

The Cream Metallic Stripe Shirt

The cream metallic stripe shirt I have on is a new wardrobe addition. I got it some months ago but only just the chance to wear it, thanks to the warmer weather we are experiencing on and off. I like the top a lot. It is so my style. Easy to wear and style up or down. Everything else I have on is an “oldie”. I really like the pair of jeans I have. It works great with the cream metallic stripe shirt. It also fits like a glove which is just how I like my jeans.

I am excited spring is here at last. The weather is starting to warm up, and the days are now longer. I have many spring outfits styled in my head, and I can’t wait to really take off these layers and style them in real life. How is the weather at your end? Are you excited for spring fashion?

Style tips for dressing your age

*Affiliate Link.

 

Fashion and style is a very personal thing. We all have our own individual sense of style, which usually changes with age and lifestyle situations. I am all for dressing your age. The whole style/fashion has no age doesn’t really make sense to me. I believe both women and men should dress appropriately for the event and their stage in life. A 30-year-old would look ridiculous wearing Jojo Siwa Bows, but the Bows would look great on a 5-year-old.

Here are some top style tips for dressing your age –

 

Leave a lot to the imagination

There is a thin line between looking sexy and looking trashy. I usually stay off revealing clothing. It has never really been my style, and as I grow older, I find myself staying away from clothing that reveal too much flesh. A bit of legs and shoulders here and there is all good, as far as they are not both on display at the same time. Some women like revealing cleavage too! That works if it is done tastefully. The rule says do not display your cleavage and legs at the same time. So before you leave the house, take a final look at your outfit to ensure you leave a bit more to the imagination.

 

Pay attention to your colours

I like to wear colours every now and again, especially in the spring/summer months. However, the more I grow, the more I stay away from a rocking a bright outfit. I like to inject some colour in my outfit with colourful accessories, that way the overall look of the outfit is balanced out.

 

Confidence

Being confident is very important. I like to feel comfortable in my outfit as comfort helps me stay confident. Age has made me more confident, and dressing appropriately helps me feel better about myself.
