Target dress, clutch (similar) and Elephant necklace; Kohl’s heels (similar); F21 spike rings and sheer cardi (similar.)
My legs are the same color as my nude color heels, no? I edited these pictures and then immediately applied some self tanner. I mean, yikes.
I’m kind of in this mode lately where I look in my closet and see nothing to wear. I keep picking the same four or five items and re wear the same looks day in and day out. I mean, I know that I have a ton of stuff and it’s all in my head, but I guess I’m lacking the will to put something cute together in a pinch? It just seems easy to grab the tried and true looks that I know I feel comfortable in and just go out the door. This whole, “hot one day, chilly the next” weather pattern isn’t helping me out, either. I need Fall and brisk temperatures to break out my beanies and sweaters and cute wedge sneakers and scarfs. And boots! Man, do I have plans for my Hunter boots.
I’m also feeling a little off about my body lately after a couple months of non editing in the food department. It feels like I just woke up and stepped on the scale and saw the truth of what I’ve been doing. I’m not grossly over where I need to be, but it is the little bit that counts for me and I don’t feel that comfortable in my skin right now. I haven’t felt this way in awhile and I’m mad at myself for letting it get to this point and having to reign in all in.
I’ve been cutting things out gradually to get back on track. I have a mini plan of attack that means cutting things out a week at a time until I have a handle on self control. The first week I cut out sweets, and this week I cut out fried foods. I am adding more each week until I reach my goal and then I will gradually (and sparingly!) add some back in. I’m thinking diet soda and portion control (no seconds!) are next for elimination. I’m doing pretty good so far and think this is what I need to feel better in my skin.
I guess I’m just feeling ambivalent about a lot of things right now and need a little spark to reignite my passion for clothes and such. My reality is that I’m a mom with two kids and they have school and activities and I have their world to run and throwing on super cute looks isn’t always my top priority. Sometimes I have to settle for good enough, which doesn’t always make for the best blog photo. I know this will pass and until then I will pin a zillion cold weather looks on Pinterest and perhaps even wear some faux leather pants to soccer practice this Saturday. We shall see. Stick with me, okay?
