outfit post: berry ruffle trim shell, tan pants, burgundy pointed toe pumps

Inspiration - White House Black Market

Simple outfit. Love love love this top. Flowy and non-wrinkly and pretty pretty color. Thanks Memorial Day sales at Loft! (Picked up quite a few things via online shopping this weekend - will do a round up once some of them arrive in the mail!)

Goals - Week 12 update:
  1. Start eating healthier & walking lots - 
    • Eating healthier - Pretty great week! Did a really good job of prepping lots of food on Sunday and just eating those meals all week. It was brainless autopilot and successful! (Helped that hubby was traveling and I didn't have to factor in his picky eating or weird work schedule to what I had for dinner.)
    • Exercising:  5 days of 10K steps. No other workouts. Need to get some weightlifting into my schedule! 
    • Weight: Just crossed into a new 10 lb range of weight! Finally seeing a new middle number in my weight is exciting - I feel like I was bobbing around in the last 10 lb range for  such a long time. It feels great to be in the next range down. And that means I'm almost half way through my 33 lb loss goal. Yippee!
      • Weight lost this week - loss 2.2 lb
      • Total weight lost - 14.2 lbs (39.2 lbs since my top pregnancy weight!)
      • 18.8 to go
  2. Post at least 3x a week-
    • Post 3x: 3 posts. Success. Since I'm starting to get my groove - I think this goal will be upped for next week to 4x a week!

outfit post: teal crepe blouse, jean jacket, burgundy frond pencil skirt

Inspiration - Mix & Match Fashion

Another cute blogger, Tara at Mix & Match Fashion, gave me inspiration for my fun frond skirt. Love the idea of mixing in the teal top, a totally different color than the burgundy of the skirt, and keeping jacket & shoes neutral.

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!
