Striped Delight

Posted on: May 14, 2015

I’ve been loving stripes in shirts and even cardigans,

but this season I am embracing them in Maxi skirts.

I found this striped skirt at Jane.com for just $12.99 and bought it in 3 colors.  

Unfortunately items only sell at the great prices for a few days before they expire, I love that site! 

I was hoping my daughter would finally try a maxi skirt, but she didn’t like it…

No worries I am keeping them or perhaps will give one to a dear friend who can fit it.  

This one is Navy, and I got black and burgundy as well…

I used beach wave spray in my hair and just scrunched it today..

I packed my bag for the Vegas trip that begins Saturday and my husband came home in the afternoon for a surprise lunch, so it was fun to be dressed in my new skirt and ready for spur of the moment events like this. 

We are so excited about spending 4 days in Vegas and seeing Neil Diamond and Cirque de Soleil Michael Jackson.  We haven’t made all the other plans and will see how we feel.  I’ve pinned a couple ideas of things to do in Vegas and the top on that list was to go to the Mob Museum , without that history there would be no Vegas!

My navy peplum top is also from Jane.com and I adore it..

I would love it a little more once I finally get to losing this stupid 15lbs I am now carrying around. 

These past few weeks being inactive due to my sciatica, and orders from my family to do nothing and heal for the Vegas trip, has been so frustrating as I was ready to exercise and get the journey going… 

Alas it is what it is and like all things I can find gratitude in even this pause time because it has definitely made me even more determined to stop playing around with this and get to losing.   

I had been stuck with wanting it but not being fully motivated….

Gratitude

I am grateful to the wonderful homeschooling group and how generous and supportive we all are! 

I am grateful to my beautiful daughter who, after I went to bed last night, cleaned every surface in my kitchen, fully supporting her stance that I take it easy before Vegas and allow my sciatica to heal. 

I am grateful to my husband for surprising me with a lunch outing today. 

I am grateful to my son, who as I type this, is in the kitchen peeling potatoes so the kids can enjoy mashed potatoes with the Salisbury Steak they wanted for dinner.

I love the outfit! You’ll enjoy Vegas. My brother lives there, and we drove out there 8 years ago. If you get a chance, go to Hoover Dam. It’s a short drive, but worth it. It’s amazing to see!

I have no doubt I will have a wonderful time. Might not make the Dam this time, but definitely planning a second trip , so will keep that in mind. Thank you for sharing that , as i would not have thought of it!

I am loving the striped skirts too, Tracey. this outfit looks great and that top is so cute. Oh, geez, I’m up nearly 15 lbs too. Ugh. Can’t seem to get into the groove of working to get it off and I’m not feeling the greatest about myself right now because of it. Can’t believe it’s nearly June and I’ve let this many months go by without conquering this thing. We can do it though!

Wow, we are both on the same journey. I am blaming menopausal years…. My sciatica is better so I am ready to kick it into gear. Now the question becomes whether I have energy to both purge and clean closets as well as,exercise. I bet with a move on your horizon, you are feeling the same, lol. At least we are in good company!
