What I Wore Wednesday: Dec 14, 2011

You all should be proud! I actually remembered to photograph my outfits this past week! Well, at least 3 of them! Most of the weekend was spent in bed so I didn’t figure you wanted to see me in my flannel pants.


I call this week’s edition pinterest inspired because two of the three outfits were directly inspired by cute outfits I found while browsing pinterest! This past week has been pretty horrible pain-wise but trying some new looks fashion-wise and make the effort to feel put together really helped me feel better about myself.


So here are my three outfits:

What I Wish I Was Wearing Wednesday

I’ve totally been a slacker this week with taking pictures for What I Wore Wednesday. I’m having an internal argument with my body these days. Not the same argument that I wrote about yesterday but instead one regarding where I was one year ago weight-wise and where I am now.


This time last year I had just reached my goal weight of 125 marking a 43 lb weight loss in a year! I was so excited to slide into those size 3/4 pants at Maurices. This year I’m sitting about 15lbs heavier. Not where I want to be at all. I will acknowledge that 125 was probably too low a goal to maintain for my post-menopausal body. The crazy high pain levels, surgery, and post-op Megace treatments have not helped matters. However, I still need to take ownership that my poor decisions have contributed as well (even though its very tempting to blame it all on the Megace since weight gain is the #1 side effect).


While my husband really likes my body at its current weight (I gained my curves back!), I would like to lose at least 5-8lbs. I think I would feel much more comfortable if I weighed between 130-135. So while I’ve been browsing Pinterest for cute outfit ideas, I’ve also been building a motivation board to help get me back in gear to make some healthy decisions. I’m not going to say diet but rather a lifestyle change. As much as I looooove my Dr. Pepper, its about time that we broke up. The holidays aren’t exactly the best time to kick the sweets to the curb, I know its a choice I won’t regret. I’m hoping the Sisterhood will have a challenge that kicks off after Christmas!


Enough of the shop talk – let’s talk clothes shall we? While I stunk at taking pictures this week, I did plenty of pinning! These are some of my favorite outfits from Pinterest* for what the series should be named “What  I wish I Was Wearing Wednesday” instead:



*Dress/Outfit is no longer available*

Words cannot describe how much I love this dress! I feel like its a bit edgy but feminine at the same time! I would have to trade out the shoes thought. Maybe black or even a pop of color like pink.

This would be so fun for a Christmas or even a New Years party! What girl doesn’t love sequins & sparkles?

This one is more causal but still includes some sparkle! Love the mix of the sequins and animal print!

This is a totally casual outfit but I think it would be perfect for a holiday shopping trip or hanging out with family and friends!

If you got to pick a dream outfit for the holiday season, what would it be?

What I Wore Wednesday

Its time for another round of What I Wore Wednesday!  I actually caught 2 outfits on camera this week! I’m improving! I’ve realized that my camera-camera takes better pictures and I should stick to using that versus my phone but anywho, I’m going to share them anyways! I felt very put together most days so I definitely think taking the extra effort to create outfits, including accessories, has been really beneficial to my overall well-being!


Outfit #1:

WIWW Outfit #1

White button-up & vest: Maurices

Black Trouser Jeans: Old Navy

Pink Shoes: Ebay (believe it or not!)

The coloring of this shot isn’t the greatest but I really liked the outfit & layering! However I think my favorite part of the outfit is the pink shoes! I definitely need to add some accessories to this outfit!


Outfit #2:

WIWW Outfit 2

White Shirt: Maurices

Black Dress: Ross

Jeans: Maurices

Shoes: Shoe Show

I am definitely in love with this outfit! I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest! The dress in the photo was way out of my price range so when I saw this dress at Ross I snatched it up! I think I paid $12 for it! The only thing I think is missing from this outfit is a cute pair of earrings!

I promise to do a better job taking pictures this week!
