“Orange Crush”

Posted on: September 27, 2012

This picture thing is getting easier and I am feeling less self conscious.  So what if people are looking at me and wondering what I am doing?  Love that I am sharing this experience with my husband who is being so encouraging and helping me to smile more naturally, while reminding me to stick my neck out to make my face look thinner…. I even jumped up onto a brick wall and strutted for the camera right in front of a restaurant with an outside patio full of customers gawking at me. There is just something about an orange maxi that gives a woman confidence!

I absolutely love this skirt.  I wore this a lot this spring when I first got it and put it to the side for the summer.  Now is the perfect time to wear it again.. Surprised that the wind doesn’t show up as much in these photos.  My hair was going wild! The shirt is a recent clearance purchase for only $5 from Sears.  More to come from Sears Clearance Racks tomorrow.

I have to say that I can’t wait to get to my goal size so I can get some colored jeans.  I have been putting off spending money on these until I can try them on at my goal weight for an excellent fit.  Hoping to be at goal by end of the year.  In the meantime, sticking to colored skirts! I must say I love skirts and dresses and could wear them daily and completely give up pants.  Not going to do so since being a woman means versatility!

My favorite fashion shots of you so far. I haven’t seen you for about a month…Wow you look great. And hurray to the eye behind the camera, you make quite a team. “If you don’t understand who you are, then you’ll never have the confidence to get out of your comfort zone and take steps of faith. This is imperative to fulfilling your destiny.” (Joel Osteen) You exude confidence. I’ld say you’re on your way and we will follow. Robi

My favorite so far as well. I love the navy/Orange combo!
