Weigh In Day/Black, Grey and Red

Posted on: November 27, 2012

Let’s start right away with weigh in information… After being immobile and sick with migraines and sinus pressure for four days, being too sick with a fever to attend last week’s meeting,  followed up with another week of sinus headaches and adding in PMS and swollen chest syndrome…, eating Thanksgiving Dinner and leftovers. I was prepared for the worse.  The worse meaning any weight gain, going up in any increment feels like a setback…According to my scale I lost about one pound, but the WW scale showed only a loss of .2 lbs… I am just grateful for no gain after these two weeks….Hoping these headaches go away soon…

Since I waited patiently and searched weekly for just the right red purse, I wanted another chance to use it.  What easier combination, than black and grey with just pops of red?  

I love how this combination turned out.  I found this striped top and the jumper thrifting.  So other than the scarf and boots, this outfit is mostly from Goodwill.

I think the plaid scarf and striped shirt also qualify for my new venture into pattern mixing.  I am like a little child wanting credit for my growth, hence the reason I point these things out.  This really is a fun journey and starting this blog is such a wonderful thing for me at this stage of my life…

This scarf is another one I purchased at my local grocery store last year for just $6.99.  I recently told my oldest son that for Christmas he could always pick me out a scarf.  He acknowledged that they really are everywhere and that it should be an easy task.  I can’t wait to see what he picks, as he has an artistic brain and is himself really into fashion.  Would it be silly to ask each of my four children for a scarf?  It really is an area where they can’t go wrong…

Linking up with Real Girl Glam, so go see the lovely ladies there…

Gratitude:  I am grateful for any weight loss after the past two weeks of not exercising and severe headaches…I am grateful for my father’s birthday yesterday and the opportunity to spend an entire day with him in my thoughts….

Perfect touches of red. I love the scarf suggestion as a gift. Who can have too many? And it is hard to go wrong there.

Thank you….yes, no such thing as too many scarfs…
