Blogger Inspiration

When I saw this look a few days ago on 

A Pocketful of Polka dots by blogger Jennie

I was immediately inspired to put this look together since

I own pieces similar to these.

Here’s the look that inspired me.

A windowpane print tunic, burgundy leggings and black boots.

My shirt is done on the diagnol instead of the windowpane print. 

I also added the ruffle sweater for warmth as it was bowling day where I freeze.   

No joke, I brought my trench coat and used it to cover my legs and another mom 

brought a blanket in from her car.

It was actually raining this morning, so I actually wore my windowpane 

rainboots when I was at the bowling alley.

Some days a girl just wants to rock a pair of legggings.  

I know they get such a bad rap, but when you cover your bum and wear 

taller boots you hardly see any of the actuall legging….

With temps near 80 my taller riding boots are staying put on their shelf, lol! 

I could replicate this later in the season with my burgundy cords , but this crazy warm weather is driving me nuts. 

My Dear Readers, Well I Did It!  

Today I got my butt into gear and ran on the treadmill.  I hate cardio but no more excuses, 

I am going to commit to really taking care of myself and do cardio at least 3 times per week.  

I’ve been maintaining this stupid 15 pound weight gain for way too long and am over it… 

I have a 25 year wedding anniversary coming in January and I want to go on a cruise and 

feel comfortable in a bathing suit.   Just the motivation I need to get started, but this needs 

to be a permanent change in my life and one I am committed to making.  

Gratitude

I am grateful that when someone heard an exaggerated description of events, that a call was placed to find the reality. 

I am grateful that my husband bought me that treadmill several years ago and that I am motivated.  

I am grateful that my son actually stayed after for extra practice game of bowling today.

I am grateful that my husband is working much less hours and for quality time he is spending with us. 

I am grateful that my husband was home when our son called from college today and that I was able to pass the phone off to him for a lengthy fun conversation.   I am blessed to get to talk to him a lot and want that for my husband too.

What a nice surprise this afternoon! I really like how you intrepreted my look, and love the cozy cardigan you added. And your windowpane boots are just too cute! Good for you for running today and finding your motivation again. I will be thinking about you and checking in on your progress. Thanks sharing my look today, Tracey. 🙂

Thank you, Jennie! Love your blog!
