Bad Blogger. No Biscuits.

This past week has been a little chaotic.  Not bad.  Just a bit crazy.

First, it’s been really busy at work.  Second, I’ve started trying to ride my bike to work a couple of days per week, and since I hate riding after dark if I can avoid it that has meant being VERY focused at work.  Thus the two outfits I have for this post are pictures taken on my walk to the bike shop when I suddenly realized that I hadn’t taken pictures of my outfits yet.  Definitely not my best pictures.

IMG_2711The first was an opportunity to show off a cool new purse I got.

This purse is too much fun – black stripes, pink almost everywhere, spikes, and a tassel as the icing on the cake.  How can you not love it!

These pants fit so well.  Comfortable and soft.  I actually have them in 3 other colors.  If I could buy them in a full rainbow, I would.

IMG_2745This outfit was one I saw immediately when I found the top at Marshalls.  My husband tells me it’s not, but to me this is about as preppy as I get.

  • Navy Cardigan (Marshalls)
  • Striped Top (Cynthia Rowley, purchased at Marshalls)
  • White pants (Coldwater Creek)
  • Pink necklace (old)
  • White sandals (also old and being replaced due to a complete lack of arch support)
  • Pink Purse (Vieta, purchased on Little Black Bag)

I had been looking for a navy cardigan for some time, one that was light and airy.  When I saw this I knew I had to grab it.  But the top was my real prize; great spring colors, great colors for me, and a nice loose cut.  I think I’ll go for my boot-cut pants next time.

I keep hoping that with the bicycling to work 8.5 miles in each direction, 2-3 times per week, I will lose some weight.  So far, I’ve gained.  I don’t quite know how that happened, so I’m just ignoring the scale for a while.  It hates me.

Anyway, I will try to get back into taking pictures this week.  I have some cute new ideas and outfits to show you.

    Love both of your outfits! I have never been that in to purses or changing purses to go with outfits. Since finding your blog that seems to be changing! Love your new purse. Way to go on the bike riding! 8.5 miles each way is very impressive.

      The purse thing is new for me as well, but I’m loving it. The trick is to use smaller lightweight pouches and organizers to keep things together and make it easier to change purses.

    Hi there, I just found your blog. Good for you for going out of your comfort zone and trying new things on this blog. When I was heavier, I dressed way too old for my age in very bland clothing. I’m older now, and less than 25 lbs from my goal weight. The clothes I wear today are so much more youthful than the ones I wore 10 years ago. Keep up the good work with the biking. You can do it.

  3. That bag is AMAZING. That is all.

    I hope you feel good from the cycling though? I find when I first get back on my bike I bulk up a bit with all the muscles that have lain dormant 🙂

    LOVE love love the bag and the striped top! Thanks again for joining up with WW xo
