outfit post: pink portofino shirt, striped jersey pencil skirt, white pointed toe pumps

Inspiration - Pink Sole

I got the inspiration for this outfit from the adorable Rachelle at Pink Sole. She is one of my favorite bloggers because she puts together awesome work-wear outfits I wouldn't have thought of with what turns out to be pieces I already own. And she does a great feature of 20 pieces making 20 outfits. Super cute!

When I copy outfits - they are usually in the same ballpark as the original inspiration - but this one is super identical to Rachelle's. We both own striped jersey skirts from Old Navy and share a LOVE for Express' Portofino shirts. (They are really the BEST. They look nice, fit well, don't wrinkle, can be dressy or casual and come in a bazillion colors. Perfect shirt!) This outfit is fun and colorful and makes me happy heading into a long holiday weekend. Love love love!

outfit post: mint sweater, tan pants, burgundy pointed toe pumps

Inspiration - Taylor Swift

These pants are as basic as colors get but for some reason I seem to forget what 'goes' with tan/beige pants and they go unworn for long periods of time. I poked through my flipcard view and here are all the ways I've worn them on the blog. I definitely need to pull them out more!

Goals - Week 11 update:
  1. Start eating healthier & walking lots - 
    • Eating healthier - Pretty good week - didn't eat any major junk - just a few mini reese's peanut butter cups out of the office candy bowl. I've been asked a few times what I've been eating so below is what I ate yesterday - which was a pretty typical 'good' day:
      • Breakfast: 2 overeasy eggs on top of quinoa, orange
      • Snack: Apple with sliced cheddar cheese
      • Lunch: Turkey Meatloaf leftovers, frozen mixed veggies
      • Snack: Starbucks skinny vanilla latte
      • Dinner: Southwest eggrolls (Baked corn, spinach & black bean eggroll - I used less cheese)
    • Exercising:  Exercised 4 days.
    • Weight: 
      • Weight lost this week - loss 1 lb
      • Total weight lost - 12 lbs 
      • 21.0 to go
  2. Post at least 3x a week-
    • Post 3x: 5 posts counting last Wednesday. Success!

outfit post: white midi skirt, grey cardigan, nude wedges, cobalt blue pendant necklace

Inspiration - Hilary Duff

Two of my favorite bloggers inspired the purchases in this outfit. Audrey from Putting Me Together wore her new white jersey skirt from Asos and Maria from Dainty & Decadent has been wearing her new Kendra Scott necklace often -- and I loved both so much that I bought one of each for myself. Yay fun!

The white skirt is soft, stretchy, and comfortable (although I had to buy a slip to wear with it because it was slightly see through) and will be a great summer staple. And the only issue with buying the necklace was narrowing down what color to purchase since I wanted every single one!
