This was not the outfit I intended to wear this morning.
I put on the tights and the cami, walked to my closet and grabbed my gray skirt. I put it on… and it fell off. Literally. I bought it and wore it last Easter, and well, looking at that picture, with the skirt pulled too tight across my mid-section and my face looking unfamiliar, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. But it was a nice gray skirt. Sighing, I grabbed my gray pants. They’re almost done as well, which is a double bummer as Fashion Bug is no more meaning that I cannot order them online either.
Losing weight is great for the simple fact that I feel healthy; I am healthy. But man, losing weight is expensive. While some clothes can be altered, some can’t. Sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye to lovely pieces.
The nail polish is a color I bought on impulse but haven’t worn until now. It looks a little more taupe in the bottle than the L’oreal Greycian Goddess gray I have, so I thought it wasn’t quite gray enough. Nope. It’s just lovely — and I adore Essie’s quality. I know I’ll be wearing this color more.
I did want to take a moment to let you know (and/or warn you) that starting on March 1st, I’m running 17 Days of Green again. It was a bust for me last year, as we were actively closing on our house and moving. This year I plan on posting my 17 days of green outfits both here and on Instagram with the #17daysofgreen hashtag. I’d love if you would join in starting on this Friday, March 1, 2013! Obviously, next Sunday will feature something green! Follow me on Instagram — FireMom.
