Flower Power!

Posted on: April 4, 2013

I found this tunic while thrifting last spring and it just didn’t quite go over my hips, but now does so time to bring it out..


I felt really fun and spunky in this look , something I don’t always feel in pants…I think the combo of the larger floral print and  the shooties are what created that great feeling… I wore this grocery shopping at Bj’s and noticed a few admiring looks from fashionably dressed women in their late twenties to thirties, so guess I din’t look to wacky…


I think I might restyle this again with a grey shirt underneath or for warmer weather with just a tank top and maybe dark wash jeans.  All I know is that this tunic will get more use. Today, I needed the lightweight cobalt sweater underneath as temperatures were only near 50 today… Going to be in the mid 40’s tomorrow…Spring just teased us!   IMG_3022Dear Readers I am feeling much better and hope that is the end of it… I am mentally focused on losing these last ten pounds.  For those who don’t think I need to lose another ten please understand that I am just trying to get back to the figure I know and love that disappeared due to anxiety and depression over losing a store I loved and watching dementia in my mother.  I like the current body, but just feel short of loving it and the ability to like myself in pants with the shirt tucked in.. Once there I will feel confident in everything I wear and be back to myself..In the interest of full disclosure, I am 5 ft 3 inches and 140lbs.  That is the highest weight WW’s recommends as a healthy goal weight for my height. The lowest is 113, so I am aiming for near the middle.  Now off to exercise, doing my fluidity ballet bar and toning with weights.   

Gratitude:  I am grateful to be feeling better and to have gone out and done some much needed grocery shopping.  I am grateful that I ate really well today and exercised.   I am also grateful that I bought great things to keep me on track.

This is going to be a great spring top! I bet it would look great paired with your cobalt capris and white pants too. Oh and your orange ones if you are feeling spunky 🙂 Glad you are feeling better!

Love it! That tunic would look really cute with gray or blue capri leggings for warmer weather. They’re on sale now at They have a bunch of new colors for Spring and are sooo comfortable. I bought a few pairs and love them with longer tops. I’m glad to see you’re feeling better! You motivate others so much, from whom do you get motivation?

Hello, I have been lurking for a while. I love your looks, especially how you look so stylish, while on a budget and looking adult ( not teen). But what really prompts me to write today is to tell you how inspired I am by your weight loss journey. You sure have had your share of setbacks and of illnesses, but you always pick up where you left off. I am rooting for you to meet your goal, a healthy weight where you can feel comfortable in your own skin. I am embarking on my journey too. I am trying to lose 20 at least so that I can be healthier and feel comfortable tucking my shirts in too and I am learning from and inspired by you.

Thanks for commenting and good luck on your weight loss… What is your plan? Feeling good in our own skin is so important and glad to have you on the journey!

I too believe things don’t happen by accident. I’m glad they led our paths to meet, on the internet at least.
