Posts Tagged ‘Shooties with a dress

IMG_2505

Yesterday I began this “Take one, Pass it On Remix  Challenge”  created by blogger, Sarah with the above outfit. Today I kept the striped top to create  a new look.

Since I started the shootie with a skirt look this season and am loving it, I wanted another opportunity to rock it before Spring arrives! I also began pattern mixing this season as well.   Starting a blog has really opened up my playful side to fashion and that makes me very happy!

Tomorrow’s outfit will be what I wear to my Weight Watcher meeting.  If you have been following me for a while you may have noticed that I choose to wear a dress to those meetings for consistency in the weight of clothing, which can vary dramatically.  I actually have removed a sweater that took almost two pounds off the scale…

Dear Readers can you guess which item I will keep for tomorrow’s look? This challenge may get trickier as the weather is warming up to the 60’s this week…  What do you think of this challenge compared to the traditional 30 by 30 challenge where you restrict yourself to thirty clothing and shoe options to remix for a month?  I love this because I don’t have to restrict my shoe choices!   Come back tomorrow and see what I keep and what my choices are to keep for the following day.   If you want to join in the fun remember you can post looks on my Facebook page.  

Linking Up with Real Girl Glam, so head on over and see what others are wearing and talking about!  

Gratitude: Not feeling very grateful today, thought I had figured out a solution to a problem and was handed a curve ball that left me without any idea for another possible solution… I am an easy going problem solver and optimist, but every once in awhile I feel severely tested and broken… a rare occurrence but reality…  That was what how I originally felt until a reader left a comment which changed my entire outlook and to whom I am so grateful for the comment and letting me know that my blog is inspiring, as I have had a hole in my heart since closing my consignment store where i built up women and inspired them daily, which filled my spirit and made me soar.  So if you are a lurker and haven’t yet commented, I hope you take note and realize your words have great power!

I found this red dress at Ross Dress for Less when I was searching for a dress to wear to the holiday party and couldn’t resist buying it.  After all it was only $17.99!

I love the polk -a- dots and the straight cut.  I couldn’t wait to wear my newly thrifted grey shooties, so out came the grey sweater.  I am not super fond of this sweater and think the ruffle detail takes away from the dress.  It ‘s the only grey sweater I own, so it will have to do…

I attempted button a few buttons and belting this look but really liked the cardigan open better.  I added the necklace since I ditched the belt and think it helps to elongate me.  I will have to think of another way to style this dress, as I really do love it a lot! I also love my red ruffle front coat:

This is what I wore yesterday to my WW meeting when I found out I lost 2.2 lbs for a total of 30lbs.  Those first 20lbs seemed to come of so easily and these last ten were so slow…. In reality, I lost about a pound a week and I am satisfied with that…I highly recommend WW and going to meetings if possible, I learn so much from other members…

Linking up with What I Wore Wednesday, so head over and see the lovely ladies..

So dear readers any suggestions?  How would you style this dress differently? It is short sleeved and needs help winterizing it….

Gratitude:  I am grateful that if my son had to face dealing with the death of a school mate that it happened the way it has.  The school rallied around the daughter of his math teacher  who had brain cancer.  They sold pink ribbons, the chorus went to her house and sang, a larger group filled her backyard and sang Christmas Carols the day before she passed.  Our local tv station ran a story about her and had one of the Jonas Brothers call her.  She was in a fashion show for those with Cancer.  Her last days were one where she experienced an outpouring of love.  She passed on Monday.  Her mother, my son’t math teacher and his favorite ever teacher, had a statement read at school that said, “She ran the race and finished first straight into the arms of Jesus”.  That statement was the most comforting to my son and hearing his teacher’s words let him know she was ok.  The entire school is wearing pink today to honor her… They are scheduling a funeral for after school hours and searching for a church big enough…here is a you tube link and another one. My prayers go out to the family and friends of Becca Parcells.
