Tunics and Leggings

Posted on: June 1, 2015

One of the very few items I kept with my weight was this tunic, which I own in creme as well. 

I love this tunic for it’s color, elastic waist . bell sleeves and the boho embroidery and shiny sequins.

I got creative today and took my polk a dot leggings from Forever 21 and cuffed them to capri length. 

Our temps today were in the mid 80’s , but I was inside air conditioning all day, so this was perfect.

Isn’t the embroidery awesome?  

I love that there are just touches of sequins and not overly done. 

Had to wear a drop earring to keep the boho vibe going.

I found these at Burlington Coat Factory. 

Drop earrings of this size are a new thing for me this season, I love my hoops, which are boho as well.

I also wore triple bracelets all from the vintage set I bought from Ebay a view years ago.

One thing I learned from blogging and taking photos was the importance of proportions, so I had to balance the tunic, with the capri length bottoms by adding my Clarks wedges.  My husband loves these and it’s so nice to get the height with this kind of comfort.  I might just have to get another color!  

Dear Readers, I am getting back on track with this weight loss and succeeding this week.

This has been my lunch  daily for the week and I’ve had smoothies for breakfast and eating a lot of vegetables for dinners.I re-engineered my father’s recipe for squash, canned tomatoes and Parmesan cheese casserole by adding mushrooms and artichokes to make a dinner instead of a side dish… It’s delicious and I made enough for days. 

Gratitude

I am grateful for a fun date night Saturday going to the beach for Patriotic Music Festival and dancing in the sand to Lynyrd Skynrd.  I love music festival season and all that our city has to offer.  

I love the exercise I got from dancing on the beach and the high I felt all day Sunday, music really does the spirit good, of course a night walking at the beach is pretty great as well. 

I am grateful that after three days of searching we finally found and fixed the electrical problem. 

I am grateful that I am back in weight loss mode as it takes the right mindset. 

I am grateful for two date nights this weekend , a movie night Sunday.  

I am grateful from homeschooling, but ready to kick it back into gear.

Super cute outfit! I love your tunic, I would to find something like it. I love wearing Capri length leggings in the warmer months, never thought about cuffing my regular leggings! Thanks for the idea! Love your Clark wedges, I have seen them & wondered about the comfort!
Have a blessed day!

Thank you Gina, wishing you a wonderful week!

I need to start eating lunches like that. Unfortunately I have to eat celery with a lot of peanut butter! 🙂 What kinds of veggie dinners are you eating, and what exactly is the casserole recipe with the squash? I love squash!

I don’t use a recipe, but I put 3-4 sliced yellow squash in a 13X9 baking pan, add sauteed mushrooms and artichokes, pour in 2 cans of diced tomatoes, one can tomato sauce and italian spices. I add grated Parmesan when I serve it… It’s fantastic and lasts me days! My husband eats some too…

I forgot to add that I bake it at 375, not sure on the time as I check it until the squash is super soft, no crunch…I check it at 30 minutes, but know it took longer…

I believe turquoise is “your color”! 😊
