Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! As soon as I got a break, I hopped on over to TJ Maxx for some shopping...for absolutely nothing in particular. Don't you love those shopping trips? Lately, it seems every time I visit TJ Maxx I wipe out the activewear department (that's, of course, after I do plenty of damage to the shoes and peruse the purses, both of which I don't need at all!).
This weekend I was SUPER excited to spot a pair of Tummy Control Boot Cut Pants from The Girls. They normally retail for $36.99 and I found them for $16.99. Yep, I was squealing in the aisle. Not only for the deal, but the fact that I've been dying to try these pants for quite some time now. Practically every celeb who works out (ok, all of them) owns a pair of The Girls (Nicole Richie, Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port, Reese Witherspoon...and, of course, Katie Holmes! She wore the Sara Slim Legging ($29.99) to dance practice last week, and I've actually seen photos of her wearing them with cute sweaters and boots around town as well. Obvi my next acquirement must be the Sara Slim Legging.
But, I won't jump ahead...I'm gonna enjoy what I've got right now! The minute I put on my black boot cut pair at home (I hate trying on at the store, unless I have to...ugh), I fell in love. YES. They make me look amazing with that tummy control panel, but guess what? They were instant comfort, and so I'm wearing them today for Pilates - yipppeee!! Now I can look slim while I'm trying to work off all those cookies I ate over the holidays. Le sigh...I'll let ya know how that goes.
P.S. I also bought this super-cute Splendid cropped sweatshirt in a pale pink to wear over all of my workout tops. It pretty much transforms everything to make me look more finished when I'm running all those errands around town, still in my workout gear. ;)[Photos from X17; The Girls]
