Posts Tagged ‘shooties

I found this tunic while thrifting last spring and it just didn’t quite go over my hips, but now does so time to bring it out..


I felt really fun and spunky in this look , something I don’t always feel in pants…I think the combo of the larger floral print and  the shooties are what created that great feeling… I wore this grocery shopping at Bj’s and noticed a few admiring looks from fashionably dressed women in their late twenties to thirties, so guess I din’t look to wacky…


I think I might restyle this again with a grey shirt underneath or for warmer weather with just a tank top and maybe dark wash jeans.  All I know is that this tunic will get more use. Today, I needed the lightweight cobalt sweater underneath as temperatures were only near 50 today… Going to be in the mid 40’s tomorrow…Spring just teased us!   IMG_3022Dear Readers I am feeling much better and hope that is the end of it… I am mentally focused on losing these last ten pounds.  For those who don’t think I need to lose another ten please understand that I am just trying to get back to the figure I know and love that disappeared due to anxiety and depression over losing a store I loved and watching dementia in my mother.  I like the current body, but just feel short of loving it and the ability to like myself in pants with the shirt tucked in.. Once there I will feel confident in everything I wear and be back to myself..In the interest of full disclosure, I am 5 ft 3 inches and 140lbs.  That is the highest weight WW’s recommends as a healthy goal weight for my height. The lowest is 113, so I am aiming for near the middle.  Now off to exercise, doing my fluidity ballet bar and toning with weights.   

Gratitude:  I am grateful to be feeling better and to have gone out and done some much needed grocery shopping.  I am grateful that I ate really well today and exercised.   I am also grateful that I bought great things to keep me on track.


I thought it might be fun to go back after my first three months as a blogger and reveal my top 12 favorite outfits .  Like all beginning bloggers I have had some hits and misses, but can see my style improving and want to take a moment to celebrate my successes.

These are in order of most recent to the beginning of my blogging adventure…. I have to mention my surprise that when I finished this that I was left with 6 dresses and 6 pant outfits.  It was totally unintentional and was a shock,  as I think I look better in dresses and would have had an overwhelming number of them instead of it being evenly split…

I would love it if you felt so inclined to post a comment saying which one or two you liked most!

I originally planned to take a break between Christmas and New Year’s, but my husband encouraged me not to and offered to take photos for me while on his vacation.  His support is tremendous and I am so grateful that he understands what this new adventure in blogging means to me.

I don’t take for granted the precious time with my family, as they are all growing and who knows where life will take them?

I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday and quality time with your friends and family!  

Dear Readers. Thank you so much for all your support in this beginning journey of blogging!


I am grateful for all the wonderful bloggers I have found and the supportive atmosphere among us all.  I am grateful to those of you who take the time to comment and share  of yourselves.  I am grateful for those readers who are not bloggers, but women who are learning with me on this adventure and find inspiration in their own lives.  Please continue sharing things that you like so I can continue to offer content that is of value.  

Happy Holidays!
