Fashion Friday - The Blues


 I’ve added to my wardrobe this last week because, well, I’ve had to.  Nothing fits – in a good way.  I’ve lost a little over 40 pounds in the last month, and more than 80 since December 2012 when I became pregnant with Hazel.  I wouldn’t say I look all that different, but my clothes definitely fit differently. 

The recent loss was due to all the medical things going on with me.  Want to lose 40 pounds in a month?  Acquire a thyroid and heart condition and there you go!  I’m about half way to what I really need to lose, so I’ve got a ways to go yet.  I think any loss though that makes your clothes feel different or puts you in a different size gives you confidence.  At least that’s how I feel these days!

I’ll be honest though – me being able to walk into any store and buy clothes is DANGEROUS for our budget… Have a mentioned I LOVE clothes?!?  I'm kinda excited that blue is such a big color this year - navy is my new obsession! 

Here’s the outfit I put together for today:



 

Shirt:  Old Navy  similar
Jeans:  Maurices  similar

Scarf:  Target
Boots:  Payless
Watch:  Lane Bryant similar

Earrings:  Forever21

  2. Wow, you have certainly been through so much. I read your other blog too where you talk about your heart being restarted twice-SCARY! So glad to hear you are doing better and the weight loss is certainly a possitive thing-way to go. Saw you last Sunday in church and you looked great. :)
