Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope everyone had a great Monday and is getting their week started off on the right foot. We had a great photo shoot yesterday and I will share a couple of pictures with you at the bottom of this post so you can see some new Spring outfits.
You girls know that yesterday was my first official day of FWTFL and it went pretty well. I stayed on target all day, then 9 pm hit and OMGAH…I was wanting a late night snack! I knew this was going to be the hard part for me. I love to snack at night, a bowl of cereal, some cookies, Doritos – I love them all! And boy did I feel the sting last night HA!
I thought giving up the creamer in the coffee was going to be the hard part, but that was the easy part! I’m just glad I stayed on track and finished the day out right. I know in a few days I will be adjusted to this change, but girls…can you say detox??!! I eat so much processed food, I literally am going through a detox stage. You can’t really see it in my pictures (I camouflage very well lol), but my main issue is the mid-section. I have gotten thicker, well, let’s be honest – I have a layer of fat there and I don’t like it one bit. Menopause is for the birds! So all you ladies that haven’t reached the late 40’s or early 50’s – don’t wait like I did!
I wanted to be comfortable today because I have to go through a lot of giveaway items for our event with Tania from 50 Is Not Old, Friday night. So I thought I would wear a graphic tee with the Utility jacket I got from Catos last month. I have been looking for a cute graphic tee and I ran across this one at Burkes Outlet. This is a perfect tee to wear under a jacket. It is sleeveless so you don’t have to worry about getting too warm in a jacket like I have on. I can wear the jacket all day and be very comfortable right now.
Since I was kinda going with an edgy look, I paired it with a pair of distressed KanCan ankle jeans. I have worn these before on the blog, even as a dressier look with a white blazer. These are very versatile pieces, so I am going to show you other ways I have worn the jacket (you have seen this one before), the pants and the graphic tee. To shop these Looks you can click on the Menu Bar at the top of my page or Click Shop My Looks and all the outfits are there.
Since I am stepping out in a “relaxed” look and I will be doing a lot of “digging” through things today, I pulled the Chucks back on. Yep, 2 days in a row…sorry! I do have some leopard print and hot pink sandals I will be styling this week!! I think you girls will really like the cute outfits coming!! I did not get a real close up of the Converse – if you remember I told you that I ordered the wrong size. Every time I look at the picture I took, I swear they look like boats on me LOL! Isn’t it funny when we look at our own feet with a shoe that is too big it looks awkward, but on others, it looks just fine?
I wanted minimal jewelry, some days I just don’t feel like getting “dolled up”, are you girls like that? I chose the Layla earrings because they are simple, lightweight, yet that stand out just enough to give me a little bling.
I’m sorry this post is short and to the point, I am headed out to work a little earlier today since it’s going to be a busy week for us! Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned this week for some really cute Spring outfits with those cute shoes! And I want to congratulate Jayne Finkbohner one more time! She won the $50 Giveaway and her email she sent me touched my heart! ALL of you girls are a true blessing and I am thankful you share your thoughts and comments with me! I truly LOVE chatting with you!! See you tomorrow ladies!
