Happy Monday! Welcome to a synopsis of What I wore last week!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I began some much needed attention to my plants outside and started to pot some new flowers and bring a little springtime in.
I will not show you what I wore for that! But, I was busy doing other things….so let’s get started!
WHAT I WORE: DINNER WITH FRIENDS
Leigh Ann and I met up with the fun ladies we worked out with at the gym for years.
Sadly, the pandemic brought that to a screeching halt, so we have needed to be more purposeful to get together.
We always have fun and these ladies were instrumental into getting me into strength training. I will be forever grateful to them.
We met out in the Texas hill country for a very, very casual Texas dinner at the Antler’s Cafe.
I wore what I have on in the first picture. I love this Chico’s denim jacket in a soft off-white. I am so glad I picked one up a couple of years ago.
Now, that I do not wear stark white, this one is proving valuable and I wear it often with my Chico’s jeggings.
I paired it with my new Spring Bloom Every Day tee shirt from Loft; an older necklace and my gold metallic sneakers.
I felt polished, yet, appropriately casual.
WHAT I WORE: SHOPPING ON ST. PATRICK’S DAY
On St. Patrick’s Day, I needed to head out to my favorite mall, and decided to wear a little green in case I ran into people I know.
What I wore on this trip was the jacket again; the green striped tee shirt and shoes from my BLAIR POST ; and a fun springtime colorful scarf.
I am a big fan of this tee and the shoes and will get much mileage from both.
WHAT I WORE: DINNER WITH A FRIEND
For going out later with a friend, I wore a dress…but with leggings!
My legs were not quite ready for primetime yet! I actually like a look like this when the weather is cooler.
This is the PLEATED BUTTON-FRONT DRESS in a color called Dark Green Papaya. I love the color and comfort of this dress!
It went perfectly with my old scarf from Johnny Was…which was a gift for writing about them.
I will have more for you later in the week from JJILL.
WHAT I WORE: TO THE DENTIST
What I wore to the dentist always includes a thought about comfort and wearing clothing that does not wrinkle in the chair.
This is the Loft Patchwork Bloom Every day Pocket Shirt that I told you Leigh Ann and I both purchased. The fabric wears and feels wonderful.
My old one is a little large on me now…I need to keep my eyes open for a new one!
Let me add here that I love wearing gold sneakers! I am so glad that I added them when my colors were confirmed.
I encourage all of you autumn-ladies to add gold metallic shoes to your wardrobe.
Here are some for you to see…..
Here is how Leigh Ann wore her shirt a couple of days later….we were practically twins!
I am going to post some of things I have been eating recently now that I have returned to the Weight Watcher’s App.
I am just one of those people who can be successful if I log it in and now that the app syncs with my Fit Bit, I am really enjoying it.
When I went out with my work-out friends, I ate the grilled shrimp, pinto beans, and friend okra. This meal was only 5 points…and it was all okra…but I had it to give!
I left behind the Texas Toast…which is difficult, but somehow easier this time and I chose to only drink water and not wine or beer. Success in eating out!
I will show you some of the products this week that I am really enjoying on my new plan.
It is not a diet to me, but finally a way for me to become a healthy eater and have it stick. I feel like my bad habits are beginning to melt away.
I hope you enjoyed this report on What I Wore Last Week and that it gives you ideas on how to transition to spring where you are!
Let me know if you have any questions….and hopefully I will see you tomorrow….now make sure that you ….
