Passionate for Polk a Dots and Purple

Posted on: September 28, 2015

I love my Old Navy Polk a Dot Pixie Pants.  

They are  the perfect way to add pattern into an outfit, 

and since it’s black and white ,versatile with any solid colored top.

Of course there are also possibilities for pattern mising tops as well. 

Just for fun, trying saying my blog title of the day , three times fast, lol!

You can find this pant in the ankle length, Here.

My top and purse ( sold out) are both by Iman via HSN.  

The top comes in 7 colors and is actually much longer ,

but it drapes nicely and is perfect for faux tucking the way I’ve done here.

I actuaally bouth it in Marsala ( Pantone’s color of the season) and Gun Metal Grey.

Notice the styling of the Marsala one tucked into a pencil skirt,

while the Grey one shoes the ful length over jeans.

My happiness factore was high with this look once I finished it off with my 

Cato vest and the tassel necklace with purple beads also from Cato ,

which my daughter gave me for my birthday.  

The vest has been on clearance for awhile as I  bought it in July and is still available for $10.99. 

I must say that it runs small as I bought the medium ,  but wear it open as it’s too tight for my  size 8 hips.

I look forward to styling these pieces so much more as we move into 

Fall temperatures which seem to elude us despite the leaves beginning to fall .  

Dear Readers, I am getting myself into full Cardio gear, moitviated by a comptetition between myself and my homeschooling son, age 15.  I decided that he goes on the treadmill first and whatevver he does, I have to do the same.We are going to do this three days a week, which will benefit us both.  

I love strength training, but not cardio ,so hope this keeps me accountable and moving more.  

My 5oth birthday passed without my losing the 15 pounds I’ve gained, so now I am setting a new goal.

My 25th anniversary is January 15h and I would like to go on a cruise, so need to lose this before I get into a bathing suit! 

I had better succeed at this one or I will ruin my 25th celebration!  

Wish me luck! 

Gratitude

I am grateful for the support of my youngest in getting to my new goal. 

I am grateful for the past week with my son home on his college Fall break. 

I am grateful that he took our rabbit with him for a week , but will come home for a bried time next weekend to return her. 

I am grateful that I scheduled a Parent’s Night Out for homeschooling parents and it’s Tuesday, so I have something to look forward to all day.  

I am grateful that my husband had a nice break this afternoon, which allowed him to revive afternnoon movie with a coworker, something they use to do somewhat regularly, but had gotten away from.  (this way the wives don’t have to go to horror movies we dislike and they are not feeling deprived)  

I am grateful that my oldest came over on Sunday to visit with his brother before he went back to college and for the conversation we all hadt together.  

I am grateful for another win for my Steelers team and that Roethlisberger’s knee injury was not his ACL, which would have put him out the remaninder of the season.

Funny because I just got two vests like this one (actually the one I removed the sleeves from a jacket), but I like them left open better—so pshaw to hip size!! You really look great…I know you keep talking about losing weight, but you’re dressing what you are just fabulously!! jodie

Thank you, I never indulge in body hatred, just need to be at a healthier weight.
