A Beautiful Day in the 80’s!

Posted on: April 23, 2014

I Hadn’t Checked the Weather Forecast and Was Over-Joyed to 

Discover Such Warmth and Sunshine! 

I love how the breeze adds an element of fun to wearing a light, flowing skirt…

I practically ran to my closet dreaming of wearing sandals and a long flowing summer skirt…

I had just bought these white very comfortable sandals that remind me very much of the designs done by Clark’s but these babies were found at BJ’s and are by Lanesboro and were just $16.99.

I did a little pattern mixing here with a tank top I bought last year and this new zippered hoodie I received just a few days ago from Ebay in preparation for wearing this orange skirt, which I thrifted awhile back…

My maximalism took a back seat for the day and I resisted the urge to add a necklace or stack a few bracelets…

This was a perfect outfit for my day of walking to run errands and when I was checking out at Walgreen’s the girl at the beauty counter complimented my outfit and told me this color was great for me… I already had a Spring in my step, but it improved a little after that… Who doesn’t like a compliment????

My now 14 year old photographer was a little distracted watching this little guy and just couldn’t resist taking it’s picture!  

Gratitude

I am so grateful for Sunshine and how it can even lift my bloated PMS Funk and make me feel like dancing (of course a flowing skirt that swirls around in the breeze helps that too!) 

I am grateful that Walgreen’s had the special size battery I needed for my Weight Watcher brand scale, as I weigh daily and couldn’t do this morning… 

I am grateful for an e-mail from Groupon for bowling deals that will save us quite a bit on our new family weekends..

I am grateful that my daughter’s bridesmaid dress arrived for her friend’s wedding and fits her beautifully, except the length which must be shortened…

Beautiful summery outfit!

Thanks it sure felt like summer,but today a windy much colder 20 degree drop….go figure!

So pretty and summery in the orange. Lucky you with those temps! You’ll get back on track with your weight…I will too. I’ve birthday celebrated for me and my hubby (and it’s not over quite yet, haha) and put back on a few pounds. Next week I have to buckle down and cut out the splurges to get it back off again.

Thanks Lisa, Lost 3lbs in two days, getting back on track. It’s not about not living life and celebrating, it’s about moderation!
