Doubtless

Sometimes the best way to address your doubts and fears to get back on the horse and try again. So I did. 😍

As I mentioned yesterday, I let my doubts hold me back from entering the store after I had driven there. Today, I decided I needed to come back from that, and went back to the same store.

Now, unfortunately, not as good a parking spot, but still pretty close. I was a bit surprised at how busy it was in the store. Hudson Bay don't get the most volume of traffic in a mall, in my experience, but so it goes. Anyways, I was still in the market for a black top for that skirt, so off I went...

I think I got clocked a couple of times, but I didn't care. I think that's the essence of it, really, and how I got past it. After all, I don't know them, they don't know me, and maybe I even got a "huh, nice legs" thought or two! Even if they decided to snicker and maybe tell Facebook friends, at the end of the day, it's a very limited number of people who's opinion truly matters to me and absolutely none of them are strangers.

To wrap it all up, I bought two tops. A really cute black one with a pearl/tulle overlay and a blue and white striped top with a front knot that I think will look really cute paired with jeans. It was a good trip.
