Lace, Leather & Ombre

Posted on: May 29, 2013

Well really, lace, faux leather and ombre, but that just didn’t make as good as a title…

Linking up today with Tres Chic Fashion and LOOk What I Got 


I took these photos over the weekend when we had teimperautres in the 70’s…This lace top and the purse are both thrifted pieces. The moto vest is F21, the shoes are Payless and jeans are Diane Gilman.  The Necklace is from Burlington Coat Factory and the  bracelet is from my Grand Cayman Vacation, bettter view of that in the next photo…


I like how you can see the bracelet from this angle and also the side of my prescription sunglasses.  If you had told me a year ago that I would be rocking ombre jeans I could not have imagined it. but then again I was 40 pounds heavier…I am having so much fun with this new body size and pants which were my nemisis before.


While I liked the nude pumps, I also wanted to give my floral wedges a try with this.. These are my new Aerosoloes, which are on sale now for $19.99 

What do you think, do they work?

Dear Readers, Yesterday deciding  on a goal weight that is less than four pounds from where I am now, really jump started me to think when this goal is over, what is next?  My answer came in the form of the choice to increase my workout weights. I am really shocked that it was as easy as it was to switch from my 8lb hand weights to my husband’s 15lb ones.  I am loving how strong I feel and shocked at how many reps I can do.  In fact since today was hump day and I had these photos to use, I spent the day in work out gear and kept picking the weights up to do several sets over the course of the day. So, now going to concentrate on really refining my body and finishing up what I’ve started with the now refined muscles I can see in my stomach.  Not sure where this new goal will lead me…. I don’t want to look like a body builder, just tone as much as I can while keeping my femininity.   I also want to set a goal to do more Yoga poses as there is so many more challenging ones than what I am currently doing.  AAaaah , I can breathe now that I have a new goal! Readers, are you goal oriented, when you set and accomplish one goal do you look for a new goal afterwards? Are you working on any personal goals right now?  Think my next one might be doing some things to my home….


I am grateful for:

My new-found love of strength training

A day of not getting dressed

My daughter working out and finding ways to get better sleep

My 17 year old son sharing his day when he comes home from school

The assignment my oldest had to speak about his childhood in French and him choosing pictures and showing them to me and the memories that we shared over the photos. 

The amazing conversations that happen with my older children about things in the world

This outfit is so perfect. Love the nude shoes and bag with the cute ombre jeans and creamy top half of the ensemble.

Love the outfit and I like the nude shoes with it.

Thank you for linking up this week. Love your outfit. See you next Thursday.


It is a gorgeous combination! I love the lace top with the turqouise jeans.
