The Cure for What Ails Me…

Posted on: April 2, 2013

Yes, Fashion can cure my spirits regardless of what my stomach is doing….(which was keeping me up all night with waves of pain just enough to be irritating)   It is getting better and not as bad as the first bout I had two weeks ago!


So what is better than a jean jacket, black dress and boots? 


A touch of Animal Print of Course!

The weather was cool enough that boots were a better option and no complaints from here.  I’ll take any excuse to prolong boot wearing before the hot humid temps of summer make that impossible.  I think this would be a great  casual date night look.  I know there are those who say as a woman over 40 should only wear dresses s  at knee length,but I don’t subscribe to set rules in fashion.  


I purchased this dress from Chadwicks a few years ago when I was mourning the loss of my mother and dreaming of my weight loss, but hadn’t begun the journey yet.  I prepared for this journey as part of my healing.  It’s so fun to reap the benefits of that preparation! 

Dear Readers, Your comments are welcomed and greatly appreciated… I have missed three WW meetings due to two bouts with this stomach bug and a sinus infection in between… this final weight loss has been on hold for way too long and I am ready to kick it into gear, wish me luck and pray this illness stuff is done!  

Linking up Today with What I Wore Wednesday  and Random Wednesday and Rolled Up Pretty

Gratitude:  I am grateful for the sleep I was able to get today.  I am grateful for my youngest son for taking my photos.  I am grateful for touching base with a friend.   I am grateful for this bout of illness and it’s kick in the butt to get back to finish my last ten pound weight loss..

Hi Tracey, I just hate that you’re sick again. I hope you feel better soon and stay that way this time! My weight loss has been at a stand still ever since I spent a long weekend at Disney World, for one of my daughter’s cheerleading competitions a month ago. I was doing so well, and then vacation mentality hit me like a ton of bricks. I’m up 5 lbs! I was back on track today, and I’m determined to keep going. The good news is I went to Goodwill tonight and left with way too many beautiful items. ; )

So easy to get off track and after a huge chunk of weight loss the strong drive isn’t there… Some trips to Goodwill can be very successful! Glad you are having so much fun and luck with it!

I love the outfit!

I don’t think it matters how old you are, if you look good (like you do), you should rock that dress. It’s fabulous with the detailing at the hem. Get well soon!
