Getting Ready for Spring & 7 Day Weight Loss Results

Posted on: February 20, 2017

First of all, Today is Day 7 of my 100 Days 

following Weight Watchers Simply Filling method. 

My first week’s weight loss is 5lbs!  

When doing the WW Points system I never lost more than 3.5 lbs in a week.  

Can’t wait to see what next weeks results will bring!  

Made In Spain Espadrille Wedges

TJ Maxx 

Last season I bought these in Blush and Blue and wore them a lot , 

so with green being a great color for the season, I just had to have these.

Wben I saw them in red, I  literally squealed with delight. 

I thought having this shoe in 4 colors might be overkill , so 

I went to my trusty You LOOK Fab forum to see what they thought. 

One woman suggested that these weren’t on trend and I literally cringed and thought, 

I have had some kind of Espadrille inspired Summer Shoe my entire adult life, 

the next comment said what I was thinking, 

“They are classics.” 

When Stylist  Angie Cox piped in that this could be my signature style shoe, 

that was all the approval I needed to go back and order these.  

These brand new Clarks are one of 3 pairs of brand new Summer Shoes , 

I found in my sister’s closet.  It was funny to see that she probably did the same 

thing I did and bought them at the end of last season on sale.  

Funnier also that this style worked for me as my sister wore a half size larger shoe than myself .

This is yet another pair from Kelley’s closet, 

these are by Springstep.  

It was so weird to go through her clothes and shoes recently.

I have wanted a pair of these artsy kind of sandals, but found 

them outside my budget when I did see them. 

A huge part of this journey of going through the process of clearing out her condo has 

been seeing so many of her things that show how alike we were.  

Leave it to my sister to find these by Springstep and again, 

most likely on end of season clearance.  

Wearing her shoes will certainly keep memories strong around me and 

offer emotional comfort.  

If the Espadrille wedges are my signature summer shoe,

I dare say these open back slide on versions seem to have been Kelley’s.   

I would say I am set for Summer shoes Now!  

I hit up Ebay for a few printed maxi skirts after I watched Offsprings 

and shared my love of the main character Nina Proudman’s style. 

I realize I only had one print maxi skirt with the rest all solid shades. 

Nina Proudman had worn a print skirt and open weaved sweater in one

epidode that I loved so much that I jumped at the chance to copy it with these two pieces also from Ebay.

 

When I saw these in the shade of blue more similar to the one Nina Proudman I couldn’t resist.  

This will look great with the blue wedges I bought last year. 

Yet another Ebay find inspired by Nina Proudman Style, as 

she wore a lot of white tops or white kimono topper with embroidered or pin-tucked details. 

This is very sheer and will need a white tank under it , but the good thing is that the sides tie

so it will work with me as I lose weight this season.  

This Chico Ebay topper was inspired by the fact that Nina Proudman had quite a few 

toppers that were shorter than the ones I currently have, and great for my Petite height. 

This shorter Kimono was also inspired by wanting shorter toppers.  

Nina Proudman had a red one with medallions that was fantastic, but 

this will have to do for me.

I wore this floral tunic from Ebay with a long duster sweater 

on Saturday and the good news it this isn’t a used piece, 

so here is the link for it…

It comes in other colors too m a fun embroidered piece for my boho style. 

This coral kimono , also from Ebay. 

I just love the lace detail on the bottom and sleeve.

 

For days when I want a bit longer version with some fringe.  

This one is also available and can be found Here. 

 I tried to stick to pieces that will work with my Weight Loss and I am 

so excited to see what I can accomplish within 100 days, not that I will 

quit then, I have to reach goal weight!  

I have been sick for the entire 7 days I have been on this weight loss program, 

a darn virus that is lingering with symptoms like scratchy throat, sneezing , watery eyes and just yesterday 

turned into a cough.  I should count myself lucky as my two sons who caught this have had the cough the entire time. 

But I still stayed on track and even fit in a few  short spurts of exercise sets a day.,..

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope you are doing well!  

Anyone else shopping for the warm seasons ?

I did just buy a pair of sandals, but it’s so hard when I can’t wear them yet.
I also just bought a sleeveless shirt—but I found a way to wear that right away!!

I wore my blue wedges from last year , yesterday as we had a Spring like day , sneak in… Of course these big swings in temps are making us all sick, lol . It is hard to have to wait to wear a new purchase. I keep trying things on and dreaming of Spring.

I think you’re doing a great thing for yourself and your sister’s memory as you go through her things and find joy in keeping shoes and other articles to wear! Years ago, when my mother died, I kept certain pins, scarves, and jewelry that I remembered her wearing. I still get a warm feeling wearing these items, and it’s been almost 30 years since her death. Best wishes to you on this journey in life! I, too, have a fondness for boho style and maxi skirts and enjoy seeing what you post.

Thank you, I too enjoy my mother’s jewelry and the memories of her wearing them. I have an even deeper attachment to jewelry my sister made and wore.

Love the long printed skirts and tops. What a great idea to find someone with style like yours and add her touches to your look.

Thanks, I have never seen anyone do a boho look that wasn’t over the top so was immediately drawn to it.
