Pinterest Inspiration Challenge Day 2

Posted on: November 13, 2012

Today is the outfit I am most excited about !  Ever since I rewarded myself for reaching the halfway point in my weight loss by purchasing a faux fur vest, I wanted to wear it with a dress.

Remember Tuesday is Weigh in Day and my results are at the bottom of this post....

The Inspiration Picture:

This was actually a catalog photo that I enlarged, sorry for quality…. I so wanted to curl my hair and have it be wavy for my version, but time didn’t allow for that…. I am a busy home schooling mother…

My Version is not as boho as the inspiration dress, but the rule for me was not purchasing anything to complete this challenge. I feel great in this one!  I am disappointed that the feeling I have in this doesn’t translate into the photo as it doesn’t look fabulous… I have to say it makes me look heavier than I am and after losing 35 lbs, I certainly don’t want that… I feel so good with the swish of this dress and downright sassy, so going to try this once I am down another 19lbs and at goal. I must say that I wore this out to the Verizon store, BJ’s and Sam’s Club and did notice some admiring looks from women,so I guess it was better than I thought.

Had to include me trying walking in the photo instead of a still pose…

Since I recently picked up this snakeskin dress while thrifting, I had to try this look as well because the first dress was flowing and had volume while this one has a straight cut. Well, after yesterday’s post and now this, you can see I really love animal print and always have. It is so great how much the vibe of each of these changes with what dress you use with the vest.  This is the first time wearing  booties  and tights with a dress.  I think the lower boots work well here…. I love challenging myself to try new things and I am proud of myself for doing so! I will wear this look again, soon….

I know for me that I only used two dresses that were in the browns in keeping with the inspiration photos, but the options really are endless..Such a simple look  anyone can do.  I hope I have inspired you to go search out your dresses and play in your closets and have some fun! It’s more fun than therapy….and better than eating mindlessly…

Weigh In Results- I lost 1.2 lbs this week which is a relief because I stress ate yesterday to the tune of three 7 point bags of chips… This is the first time I did anything like this since March.  

Gratitude-I am grateful that my almost 17 year old son (November 17th) has matured and is very focused on school and is so adamant that we go to college night tonight. I am grateful any time my children become self-motivated and I get to see them taking responsibility.  

Dear Readers. Your comments are appreciated and welcomed so please CHIME IN !  Comments can be left at the top of this post, thank you!

Wow! Love the first dress with the boots. Congratulations on your 1 pound weight loss. You are really motivating me on my never ending journey. Yes, self motivation with high schoolers is the best. On our homefront, I casually mentioned what to our son what would like to do after high school? He graduates this year and really has no clue . A little different then our first two who were college bound from the beginning. Every child is different and brings their own gifts. Have a good day, Cindi

My oldest really struggled to find his groove in college and is finally moved up from the community college to the university level and well on his way. I admired his strength of never giving up and just hanging in there… Every child really is different and blessed are the children whose parents embrace that….

That’s a great dress, and those tan boots are great too. I like the layering with the faux piece. So fun and funky! Congratulations on the weight loss! (I found your blog via my sister Cindi — so happy for your shared path to good health!)

Thank you! It is so nice to have found someone else writing a blog who is using Weight Watcher program. I know a few women from my meeting who will benefit from reading your sisters journey and plan to give them her blog info next week…

You did a great job replicating the inspiration. The look has a great boho vibe! Thanks for linking up for Real Girl Style!

another website I posted this on suggested it had a Stevie Nicks vibe…. I like boho..
