Although I was chilly in the morning, once the sun hit my windows, I was roasting hot. Sweating! I had to keep doing the "fan under the armpits" hand motion to keep from erm...glowing all over this silk blouse. I love this high-waisted pencil skirt too - it has a square of shiny black pyramid beads at the waistband. This was one of the items I wore in Jane's last Wardrobe Challenge - there's another one coming up the week of March 1st and I am in!
I call this my Londyn Blouse because she has the same one. I love when fellow bloggers have matching clothing. Besides this blouse, Kasmira and I have the same Talbot's skirt in different colours (hers is green, mine is orange), Julia and I have the same skirt (although mine is just not right, so it's going back to the consignment shop), and Lorena noted in yesterday's comments that she has the same earrings as mine only in brown.
But that's not the only inspiration I'm talking about in the title. Two bloggers get special thanks from me today.
1. Have you noticed how nice and bright my pictures are today? Thanks to Kasmira for this awesome post - number 4 was just what I needed!
2. I love Sheryl's blog for her fitness and weight loss journey. She climbs stairs all the time as part of her workout routine. I work on the main floor of an office building, and I usually take the elevator to get to our condo (the inside stairs are stinky and the outside stairs are noisy), so I don't do stairs very often. Wednesday is when Sherylyn (of Yummyland) and I meet up after work and go for a walk - she was running late today, and the spot we meet has a huge big outdoor staircase. I figured, "If Sheryl can do it, so can I!"
The first time up and down, no problem. The second time, I'm starting to breathe heavier. Better pace myself. The third time, jeez, how many stairs are there? The fourth time, there are 63 stairs. My legs are starting to burn. The fifth time, oh, my legs are feeling like jelly! The sixth time, where the heck is Sherylyn? Phew! Thank goodness, there she was. Man, my legs are sore! I think I am going to add those stairs to my noon walks from now on - I want a gold medal in the 10K race this year to add to my bronze and silver!
Okay, back to fashion:
Look! The back of the heel is yellow patent! Isn't that awesome?
Those are leather shoes - aren't they gorgeous? I've never seen the brand before, but they will be great for summer.
Silk blouse (Nine West), skirt (Kensie), shoes (Portia), bracelet and earrings (Le Chateau).
