A Trio of Recent Outfits…

Posted on: June 30, 2016

My Dear Readers, 

I think I finally discovered the reaason I am having such a hard time 

dealing with this recent weight gain…

It’s not so much the weight as I’ve had fluctuations before that didn’t make me crazy like this one has.  

The difference????? 

Menopause, or more specifiaclly that dreaded middle age spread….

This weight gain in my waistline has completely changed my body shape, 

which has always no matter my weight , remained hourglass…


This was a recent Mom on the Go Look… 

My photographer took it on a wonky angle, lol.  

To make my dilema with this body more clear, I liken it to an artist always using a rectangular shaped 

canvas in different sizes for decades only to be given a circular canvas….

That’s how I am feeling because after all, I am using style as my artistic expression.

“Inhale Love, Exhale Gratitude,  Just Breathe ” 

I wanted another crossbody purse and indulged in this one from QVC …

Enjoying my boho beach wave hair!   

_20160630_160025uschia and Navy is a favorite color combo of mine 

and quite franly wearing this outfit felt the best I’ve felt in awhile.  

I think the swingy fun of cullottes was part of it.  


I am grateful that my niece will start coming every other week starting next Tuesday!  

I am grateful for the fun of bowling with my two sons.  

I am grateful for the bond between my two youngest as they found a new bond in playing chess, the best part is they are playing it on their phones so when my son heads back for summer classes in college, they can still do this.   

I am grateful for the fun anticipation of the long awaited Journey concert!  

I am grateful for dear friends and how they build me up with their compassion and kindness.

Oh, Tracey….you look marvelous in all of these outfits (that new bag is enviable)!
I know the weight gain is annoying to you, but as readers we only see the beautiful woman in front of us!

Thanks , this is the hardest time I’ve ever had in wanting the weight gone, but not succeeding, lol…

LOVE the black and blue combo!!!! 👍

Thanks Cindy, I am partial to that as well, despite so much feedback focused on how well saturated brights work on me. Have a wonderful Holiday Weekend!

I think its both casual and refined..maybe that’s why I like it..enjoy the holiday!
