I sometimes feel a little pressure to dress a certain way for the blog. A little rock and roll, a little lady. I have chosen not to wear outfits that I didn’t think “fit”. And I think that has limited me. So today I wore what I wanted, and it’s not very rock and roll, and that’s OK. I’m comfortable and confidant, and I’m wearing a skirt and tee combo I felt too fat for two weeks ago*.
Those glaring white sticks coming out of the bottom of my skirt? Those are my legs. Bare. I can feel the breeze on them, and it’s a bit chilly, to be honest, but it should be about 80 (F) this afternoon. 80! How exciting!
My boss sent me a link for the “Target Deal of the Day” last week and it was this jacket, in black, navy or green, for $10.00, free shipping. I told her to stop sending me stuff like that, and then I ordered it. The jacket is normally $29.99, and for those of you with money to shop, well worth it. It’s lightweight, comfortable and the cut and fit is so flattering and fun.
I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing it zipped all day, but for the curious, this is what it looks like open.
Yesterday my Skins Series 4 DVD set came, and as such this week I will be behind on Gossip Girl, Life Unexpected, 90210 and pretty much everything else until I get it watched. I already came across one spoiler for the next to last and last episodes so I want to get it all watched before I read anything else! Plus, it’s one of my favorite shows of ever. I’m so Team JJ. And team Naomi. And team Emily. Lol. I love them all.
*I have not been able to force myself to recommit to Weight Watchers right now. It works, and I know it works, but I’m not in a good place to work it right now. For now I am eating either Special K or Chocolate Cheerios (YUM) for breakfast and sometimes lunch. I also have a few low calorie frozen meals for lunches. I’m eating a piece of fruit and a snack/breakfast bar during the day as well. And it’s working. I have not lost a ton of weight, but I have lost some, and I feel better. I’m also aiming for 4 workouts of any kind a week. I have some pants that are a wee bit too small. I will fit in them soon, I promise myself.
