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


**I have not been paid or received any gifts from the companies listed above. 


  1. You look great! Although, I'm sorry you lost the weight in the way you did..

  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. :)
