Workday Outfit - Pink and White ... + Food & Weight Loss Journal

This is one of my favorite outfits.  I like the color, comfort, fit and it just feels like me.... so that feels good.  It covers my problem areas that I don't want accentuated.
I'm not sure if everyone else would agree this is the best look for me.  It's interesting to get other perspectives.  For example, hubby said it was nice, but not his favorite.  He also said he may not be the best judge of fashion though. haha  He did tell me the other day that he didn't think you should roll up a blazer sleeve to have the silky lining showing....so..... :)
I do appreciate his input and thoughts on how I look.  He is usually very complimentary and always sensitive to my feelings in regards to my appearance.
I'll still wear this outfit, regardless, and other outfits I have put together and planned that are of a similar style.  I feel it's one of my "go to" looks.
What are your thoughts?

  3. Pink and white are definitely your colours, Lisa! Before too you wore something in these colours combination and I noticed it. You instantly look...I don't know...blooming.

  4. I agree this color looks fab on you but after losing weight wonder if you are dressing your old body? It can be a difficult transition. This silhouette is easy and works but may no longer feel right to you.

    1. I know you feel I should tuck or belt my tops...or perhaps wear them shorter... I've tried, but when I see it on me I just don't think it looks right...or flattering to my body type. I will try an experiment, maybe with an outfit like this, and try the top different ways and see what the consensus is on the looks. Maybe I just don't see myself accurately...or am not choosing what looks right on me.
      Thank you, for your input, Tracey. I will work on it.

  5. I find that shade of pink gives your face a special light and you look great wearing that shirt!
    Problem areas? You don't have any problem areas!!

  7. Hi Lisa. I said it before and I say it again. Thse are definitely your colors. I am with Olga....you instantly look blooming... and beautiful, young, feminine, bright. I like the loose fitting look. I also think, you would look beautiful with a tucked-in top. Just a suggestion.
    Have a lovely day.

    1. Hi, Lenya. Thank you for your compliment and suggestion. I like the loose fitting look best on me, but I will try to venture out of my comfort zone sometime and try a tucked in look too.

    1. Hi, Debbie. Yes, that's exactly how I feel when I wear it. Put together, but with a casual feel...and the pink makes it light and fun.

  10. Lisa, you wear this look well. It reminds me of a navy outfit you recently wore, I think. And your accessories are always spot on! Wearing something you feel great in is always important; what you feel on the inside is always reflected on the outside. But, sometimes we get too comfortable with the known, and it's difficult to step into the unknown. Wear what you feel great in, while occasionally experimenting with other looks.
