Casual in Stripes...+ Food and Weight Journal

This is a first time wear for these pants.  They're Docker's, a lightweight fabric, and a baby blue color...actually they are almost like a blue/white tiny pinstripe, but it doesn't show in any of the photos...not even the close up.  I seem to have pretty good luck with the fit of Docker's brand pants.

Threw the yellow outfit on one day just to run up to the Dollar Store.  Did not do my make up. :)

Workday Outfit: Purple and Black...+ Food and Weight Journal

This is a first time wear for this purple cardigan and the pants.  This is really my least favorite length pant on me, but I needed a new size, these were priced right and so I'll wear them even though they're not my besties. :)  I do like the fit and color of them though...just would prefer they were a few inches longer for an ankle length.

Weekend Outfit: Bleached Look Jeans...+ Food and Weight Journal

I wore this on Saturday.  This is the first time for me to wear the jeans, t-shirt, and the blazer.  I have never bought any pants like this in my life so it was kind of fun wearing them.  They are jeans, but of a somewhat thinner fabric.  I love the t-shirt.  You can't see by the photo, but it has rows of tiny little scalloped ruffles all the way down the whole thing.  And it has a faint pattern of large roses.  Part of the bottom edge is just slightly frayed.  I'm not sure if it was made that way or is damaged, but I think it's cool and gives it a more rock n roll vibe.  Since I was going for a sort of over the top look I decided to layer on the jewelry a bit.

Workday Outfit: Navy and White ....+ Food and Weight Journal

Wellllll...these things happen.  I realized when uploading the photos before work on Wednesday that I had my sleeves rolled unevenly and my necklace needed rearranging.  I fixed this before I left the house. 

 I didn't get a good photo of the earrings.  They're nautical anchors in navy and gold.
 This was a first time wear for the navy mini bubble necklace.
 A first time wear for these white pants also. (I think.)

My weight went up a little which I had expected.  My pattern seems to be to lose, gain, hover...and continue with varying order of the same.  I had been on a little losing streak for a few days and so I knew this was coming.  I wasn't happy about it, but I know that I'll just keep making adjustments and trying.  Like tonight....we had a pretty filling dinner of 2 shrimp fajitas with guacomole so I made sure to not indulge in my usual nightime snack.  We'll see what tomorrow's weigh in brings....
