Orange Floral & Stripes

Posted on: June 2, 2016

With many solid bottoms, it’s fun to find a shirt that already has the 

Pattern Mixing done for you.  

Alas this one is from Jane.com and is always gone by the time it’s delivered to me. 

Be Honest, My Dear Readers, Did I make this too much like Halloween with the 

addition of the black vest?  LOL

I must say that taking photos and starting up blogging is going to 

be great motivation to keep me eating right and exercising.  

It’s impossible to see photographic evidence and not stay on track, 

so despite whehter I am thrilled with an outfit or not, 

I am going to post with glee knowing that I am on the path to 

changing and hoping to go back and see the differences 

in glaring truth that the mirror fails to show, but a camera shouts in alarming tones, lol.

One of my favorite things about the wardrobe I created from

this blogging journey are pieces that allow me to create different silhouettes. 

In just days I’ve done a short straight skort, cropped pants and now the flowy long skirt. 

This is so important to my not getting bored and using clothes as my artistic expression.

Dear Readers, I am having success with the 17 Day Diet, losing over half a pound a day.  

Here’s what I ate to day to give you an idea of how I am being successful. 

Breakfast

2 hard boiled eggs

Plum 

Green Tea

Lunch

 Greek Yogurt/Strawberries/ Green Tea Smoothie

Dinner

Salad greens, cucumbers, tomatoes and grilled chicken 

Green Tea

Snacks

Greek Yogurt -100 calorie

Tazo Chocolate Chai Tea 

The recommendation is to have 4 cups of Green Tea and I drink 12 oz at a time.  On some days if I feel hungry I will get another snack which I’ve done Tuna & Celery or a Nectarine.   This Phase one is very restrictive with just poultry and fish for proteins, 2 probiotics , 2 fruits and plenty of veggies.  

After Day 3 the cravings went away and I am not feeling deprived at all. 

Phase Two has you add some healthy carbs every other day. 

Gratitude

I am very grateful to my daughter who got started today helping to homeschool my youngest with Math and Science. 

I am grateful that my 20 year old loves to cook and made Turkey Burgers for his siblings and father tonight. 

I am grateful that my husband had a late appointment, giving him the opportunity to sleep in and still have time to change out the water in the Turtle Tank. 

I am grateful for a quiet peaceful moring all to myself as the rest of the family slept til noon. ( I am really happy there are no witnesses to my morning ballet moves in the kitchen, lol)

I would say, the vest isn’t my fave with this—maybe because I can’t see the top as much…and the shirt looks so cute!

I thought the same thing once I saw the pictures, lol… Love your honest opinion, thank you!

You always look so pretty in flowy skirts! The vest does seem to “take over” the outfit because of the sharp contrast in color. The flow of the skirt and the pretty flowers in the top seem to need a more subtle addition. I totally understand what you mean about your clothes being an outlet of artistic expression for you!

Thanks for the feedback, I don’t always get it right,lol Once again I advise that the mirror isn’t the best judge, photos are… Have a good weekend!
