Lovely Weather

On Sunday the weather took a drastic turn for the better. Saturday it was in the 90’s, Sunday in the 60’s. Wow, but awesome. I love this weather so much.

So the past couple days it has been fun to get dressed and find that nice balance of cozier clothing,while still keeping a  breezy look, since I am not quite ready for dark colors, boots, and scarfs here.

Today is the only day I took a picture. Oh well! Linking up to Lindsay at the Pleated Poppy today! I love her WIWW linky parties.

Wednesday: Weight Watchers Meeting, errands, and lunch at a friends

I LOVE wearing sandals with jeans. I love wearing sandals period. There’s just something about having your toes free and still be warm. But, I am always warm. :)

Top: Old Navy (just bought on clearance)

Cardigan: Target

Jeans: Old Navy ( Next Size down, YAY!)

Sandals: Steve Madden

Bracelet: Target

And at one point today I was wearing a super cute Robot necklace. I think I may have left it at my friends?


Weight Watchers: I am in a rut, a plateau. I gain a little, lose a little. It sucks. But our meeting today was about new beginnings. So I am jumping in full force and maybe I will have some significant loss to report the next couple weeks. :)


just another day

Do you ever have one of those days where everything you do or say could be made into a witty tagline, facebook status, twitter update? Yesterday was that kind of a day for me.  Today not so much! It’s been a long one all ready, but it’s just another day I guess.

It’s hot today. I am thus sharing  just one outfit from Monday? I think.

Monday:  Running Errands


Linking up to the Pleated Poppy today. Lindsay challanged us last week to pull something out of our closet that we haven’t worn in awhile and wear it a different way. While I did wear  dress I haven’t worn in a good two years this past week I forgot to take a picture before I was spit up all over. ;)  The problem is, I don’t have very many clothes that I haven’t worn in a while since I have been losing weight I am getting rid of all the to big clothes to help me stick to it and keep the weight off.   So… I pulled out this top, I wore it a lot when I was pregnant but not since then. I added a belt this time though.

Top: TjMaxx – can’t remember the brand-

Cardigan: Target

Capri’s: Target

Flipflops: Old Navy – these are my house sandals, I never wear them out.

Belt: Thrifted


Weight Watchers: I lost .8lbs last week Yay! This week I didn’t go due to a middle of the night long awakening by someone in the house.

Thanks for stopping by!

Blue Wednesday

I have decided two things from writing this post.

1. I wear a lot of blue. Even though I only am sharing two outfits this week, thinking back, I am not sure I went a day without wearing blue.  Hmm… I may need to think about other colors to enhance my wardrobe.

2. This photo angle gives me a double chin. In almost every picture. Oh well! I’m okay with it, obviously, since I’m sharing pictures of myself on the internet!

On to the Outfits!

Sunday: To church we did go

I belted my Sunday outfit again. Still not sure about the whole belt not in belt loops thing. But it worked since I had a button up top to nurse in, and I feel like I need to do more fitted on top when I wear a flowy skirt.


Top: J. Crew Outlet

Tank: Nursing tank from Target

Skirt: Banana Republic Outlet

Belt: Thrifted

Sandals: Target

Necklace: Lia Sophia


Tuesday: Ladies Bible Study

I have been looking for cute short sleeve cardigans and just found this one at Target this afternoon.  Does anybody else want to wear new clothes the same day they buy them. I always do if I am going out later. ;)

Cardigan: Target

Top: Francesca’s

Capris: Target

Sandals: Steve Madden (gift from my Bible study ladies several years ago)

Oh and I did put a necklace on when I left the house. But it’s not in the picture since Luke goes straight for them.


Yep, that’s about it! Since I am writing this on Tuesday night and Scheduling it for Wednesday I will have to update my Weight Watchers Stats  later today. I am not looking forward to weigh in as I had a rough food week.


Thanks for stopping by!

What I wore despite 95+ temps

I Hate the heat! Everyone who knows me knows this fact. It has been super hot in Chicagoland recently 95+ everyday. Yet I am not a tank top and shorts kind of girl. So here I am more covered up than I should be in this weather, which only makes me warmer.

1: Running around doing errands and such.

Top: Francesca’s

Cardigan: Francesca’s

Capri’s: Banana Republic

Shoes: Target

Cuff: Vintage

I love the back of this cardigan because it’s sheer. So cute!

2: mostly hanging out at home with a quick grocery store trip

Tunic: Francesca’s

Capri’s: Banana Republic (yes the same as the last outfit) ;)

Shoes: Target

Cuff: Vintage

Wow this outfit is so similar to the last one. Yikes!

A close up of my shoes. I like them because they are open and airy which is good because it is rare in the summer to find me not wearing sandals. These shoes help me do something different while still having cool feet.

Trying out different shot ideas for WIWW. I kind like this look too. It majorly depends on the lighting/time of day.

I am linking up to Lindsey at the Pleated Poppy!


Weight Watchers is going good. Went to my first meeting in several weeks, and am down .2 lbs which is better than I thought I would do.  So here’s to tracking everyday this week!


Thanks for stopping by!

Lots of W’s

First, I am joining in on Lindsey, from the pleated poppy, and her What I Wore Wednesday Posts. So much cute Fashion inspiration over there. Check it out! I have been reading these posts for a while and have never gotten the nerve or the pictures to join. But here we go!

Outfit from Sunday:

Top: Banana Republic Outlet

Tank (under top): Nursing Tank from Target

Skirt: Jcrew Outlet

Shoes: Steve Madden / Nordstroms (gift)

Braclets: Random selection of a gift, one I made, and a leather one for High school

Sunglasses: Vera Wang for Kohl’s


Second, I joined Weight Watchers Back in March with a close friend and am having the best success in losing weight to date.  I have lost 30 lbs since getting to my pre-pregnancy weight.

I am posting this here, because I think it will be good accountability for myself as the past couple weeks I have hit a plateau, and I want to see my progress through weekly pictures. What better way to do that then pair it up with What I Wore Wednesday.

The above pictures are of my Weight Watchers Pocket Guide cover I made so I don’t look like a hug dork pulling it out everywhere I eat. :)

Okay that’s all my W’s today. I would post my what I’m working on, but I don’t have a picture and the child is getting into things he shouldn’t.
