Big milestone today. I bought a pair of cropped jeans for the warmer months ahead. Last year at this time I bought a similar pair in a size 24. Today, I bought a size 16. I haven't worn a size 16 since I was 18 years old. Even at my thinnest in college, I wore an 18. And since I promised myself that I wouldn't buy a lot of new "in-between" clothing, I went to a local consignment store for these new jeans. The price? Fourteen dollars. 14 bucks for a size 16. Pretty good deal if you ask me.
