I've done the top half of this outfit before here, and I've worn this skirt a kazillion times.
It's getting a little big on me in the hips, however, as I've been working out hard lately, and really trying to focus on eating healthy and not mindlessly putting food in my mouth to deal with stress. I missed my Weight Watchers meeting last week (um, I may have been hungover from Ronnie's birthday party), so I'm hoping to see a good result this week. I've been really struggling the last year to maintain my weight at 50-55 pounds down from my start weight 3.5 years ago...10 pounds crept back on and I actually briefly popped above my goal weight about a month ago. Bad stuff.
But I've recently added stairs to my "lazy girl" workouts (in addition to my "pee push-ups" and my walking as transportation 4 days a week to and from work), and I've really felt results. I will have thighs of iron! Butt of steel! Hamstrings of...um...I don't know! But I did 7 sets of stairs (63 up and down = 1 set) today, and my legs are tired.
Anyway, get it? A "spring" in my "stair"? Ha!
My lovely flowery blouse, plaid vest and pearls. The shoes are fab and I always feel very powerful when I wear them, not sure why.
A close-up of the jewelry:
My little vintage mink brooch, cheapo earrings, and the pendant, which is REAL pearl. Mom brought me that back from Australia - that's what happens when pearls grow into the side of the oyster instead of forming round globules. It's set in 18K white gold. So pretty.
