Time to get things up-to-date from some of my recent posts -
Thanks for your input on the midi length skirt on me, ladies. I've decided to take the skirt up a few inches so I've got some more flexibility in wearing it, but will keep it below-the-knee so I can still be all swishy and lady-like. This has opened my eyes for lengths that may or may not work for me, so I appreciate all your comments. There's nothing like a short poufy high-waisted skirt to make me look I'm a wannabe teeny bopper. Now I just need to take my lazy butt to the tailor's - is there an app for that ...
I got my exchanged faux leather skirt in and while the condition of it was much better than the original, I think I'm going to return it. While the skirt and idea of it is still pretty sweet in my book, there are too many good clothes still out there for me to waste my time with stuff I'm unsure about. Like this flippy skirt that's very Kate Spade-esque. Or this wintery plaid one with a fun ruffly accent. And then there's this dark floral number that is perfectly poufy and making me hope for a sale.
This was from way back in the summer, but I felt like I should report in because I seem to have hit a slump with my healthier eating habits. I got on my no-diet diet for a few weeks and did really well, even lost a few pounds. But I've gained that weight back and eating healthy continues to remain a challenge - mainly because I have a huge problem with carbs love them, love them, love them and portion control.
Like I mentioned before, my goal isn't to become teeny tiny (because I know I'm not big), but to eat healthier and to fit back into some of my clothes that don't look so good on me anymore. I think I lost focus for a while with the traveling for work and play that I've been doing, and stuff like making pizza dough which obviously resulted in the making and consuming way too much pizza this is pretty terrible, so I better eat it all - tell me I'm not the only one. So I'm going to recommit myself - starting now - and get back into eating more whole foods and grains, fewer white carbs.
That's me for a Monday. Anything going on with you that you want to follow-up on?
