Olive, Black & White

Posted on: March 10, 2015

Another look with the color combo

Olive, Black and White….

And what a coincidence my friend and walking partner met me today, 

with a beautiful Talbots Olive Sweater she wondered if I’d like…


When it comes to black and white patterns in my wardrobe, my houndstooth skinny cords ,

have to be my favorite bottoms.


This sweater was meant to be worn open, but I belted it and think I might add 

a closure to it as it feels more cozy than when open.


It was nice to get out of boots and wear flats today..

Temperatures are back to normal for this time of year, 

in the 60’s and I am loving it!  

I have one more idea for a look with this color combo, coming up tomorrow…

Hint, It’s another black and white pattern????

Dear Readers, I am really focused and back on track to losing this unwanted gain. I am very happy about this as I would like to fit into my Spring bottoms and right now, that is not the case.  Having the right mindset and really being ready to get back to Healthy Living is half the battle.. If you aren’t ready to commit, you can not succeed.  

I chose Weight Watchers as my weight loss tool because of the accountability of weigh-ins and that I could manage my points in a way that no foods were ever off limit.  I highly recommend finding some way to be accountable in your weight loss or exercise journey… If joining my Facebook Support group is something that will keep you accountable by all means join and share your journey….

Getting Healthy Support

I loved my morning walk and am going again tomorrow.  There really is something great about being outdoors in the morning at a local park with others all doing the same as you are and seeing how cheerful everyone was.  The best part was that since it’s a hill (not really a mountain ,but hey we are at sea level so any elevation is good) we took part of our walk up a path and across the top of the hill before heading back down…That was fun and even better workout!  


I am grateful that I have a motivated walking partner who will do it daily.

I am grateful that I am hopeful that these morning walks will also help my insomnia, as exercise has in the past and with early mornings it’s bound to change.  

I am grateful for a wonderful outing with my son home from college and his confiding in me and trust that I respect him and know he is wise in his decisions.   

I am grateful that I raised a wonderful kindhearted, compassionate, giving  young man, who I know will treat the people  in his life well. 

I am grateful that homeschooling went well today. 

I am grateful that I bought a new Ninja blender today for my smoothies ( Can you believe after 3 years it broke last week).

Thank you, Gina. It is and everyone says hi and smiles and we smile at the dog owners and babies in strollers. A great way to start the day for a homeschooling mother of a teen….
