Boyfriend Jeans & Sparkle

Posted on: April 7, 2015

The hardest part of my weight gain is seeing it in photographs….

With Spring arriving and less layers I can see clearly what I haven’t wanted to face…

Linking up today with Turning Heads by Elegantly Dressed and Stylish

And with Style Elixir for Spring Outfits,  So go get inspired…

It’s not necessarily a bad thing, as it is motivating me to exercise more.

After a week of sinus headaches and not exercising as much as I would have liked,

I am ready to kick this into gear.  

I took a walk today to get started, which is why I chose this outfit…

It’s fun to add sparkle and a scarf to boyfriend jeans to make it more feminine. 

I like wearing scarves in Spring because once Summer hits our humidity makes that unappealing. 

I did a faux tuck today, which actually looked better and defined my waist.

My boy-friend jeans are from last Spring and are by Just Fab. 

That makes two things from there since my  purse , a bucket bag for this year’s trend is my most recent purchase

I sporting brand new sneakers that I found on clearance at Target. 

I figured with my love of the Sporty Chic trend, that another pair would be helpful.

When you aren’t happy with your weight, shoes are a safe bet…

Dear Readers, On my walk I went to Burlington Coat Factory and tried on clothes, a big wake up call, so I came home from my walk and did a Fluidity ballet bar workout and a few other Pilates exercises. It was a full day of wake up calls with my weight gain as I tried on my soft pants from last year and they were tight.  Yep, I am very ready to kick this into full gear!  

Gratitude 

I am grateful for my readers comments, they helped my day of facing my weight gain.

I am grateful that I joined the Get Your Pretty on Spring Challenge and am enjoying the private Facebook page where everyone is sharing their purchases and closet finds for the challenge. 

I am grateful that I had my wake up call and got right to working out!

 I am grateful that my husband agreed to go for a late night walk with me to really finish this day strong. 

I am grateful that despite not feeling well, that my home-schooler still managed to get his work done.

Girl, I am feeling you. Trying on clothes is Not fun right now. 😦 But we both are moving forward and doing something, so that is definitely a step in the right direction. You do look really cute in this – such adorable shoes and I love the sparkly top!

Seems a lot of women are in our shoes.. Was a tough winter, but moving in the right direction .

Love this outfit!!! You look so pretty and I love the sporty chic look of it! There is something about the mix of dressy with casual that makes this style so appealing! Blessings!

Thank you…I was trying to mix the casualness of boyfriend jeans but keep a feminine dynamic as well.
