Patterned Culottes

Posted on: April 1, 2016

Embracing the idea of Culottes for the Season,

I looked on Ebay to see what other options were available 

as luck would have it I scored these Black & White Floral ones 

by New York & Co.

Like my windy hair?  

I’ve mentioned before that I love black and white patterns 

because you can keep them neutral with  or you can add any color 

making them extremely versatile.

This Collen Lopez sweater is so fun and comfortable that I wish it wasn’t sold out 

in the other colors, but then again ,I scored it for a great price. 

I took a chance and bought the M/L despite being on a weight loss journey

and am confident that it will still work.

I am having so much fun breaking out my wedges

after packing away my beloved colllection of boots. 

I bought these Clarks  last season in both the black and neutral and they 

are available at QVC , although I found mine on 6pm.com. 

Dear Readers day four of my banana and hot tea for breakfast with proteins the rest of the day, 

and I am feeling great, kicking that sugar and carb cravings!  

I am feeling so great emotionally because I am getting out of that rut 

I’ve been in for way too long that has allowed for this weight gain.  

I feel strong and empowered!  

Who knew all this could happen from a silly little post on Facebook about eating banana and hot beverage for breakfast ? 

Grateful

I am grateful that I am being strong with my resistent homeschooler to writing and have given him an assignment and the tools needed to be successful.  

I am grateful for a fun phone call with my daughter , whose first words to me were “I think I was meant to be a penquin?” She went on to explain that with Boston being 67 degrees she is too hot… Poor child will be home in just two months for our humid Summer…

I am grateful for a great phone call with my husband today, he’s been very busy with some projects recenlty and it was nice to touch base and really talk in the middle of the day.  Sure beats texting anyday!

I am grateful that I booked a haircut appointment for Monday, as this length is bugging the daylights out of me!  

 I am grateful for my husband opted to come home and take our 2.5 mile walk together rather than heading to his gym.

I really like the length of your culottes—I keep thinking I need to shorten mine!! jodie

Thank you, yes the length is important for my petite height.

I love the pop of purple you added under the sweater and with your shoes and purse. The necklace looks nice with this, too. I have not worn culottes since I was in high school, and that was a very long time. LOL I was thinking of getting some below the knee length leggings to wear this spring. Now you have me thinking about adding a pair of culottes to my wardrobe.

Cullotes and Capri leggings are both better than shorts in my opinion!
