A Little Pep in my Step

Ahh, ladies (and perhaps gentlemen) I won't lie to you all, I've been a little down lately. I feel like the walls are closing in on me. I'm always really busy, it's just who I am but lately I can't seem to get a moment to catch my breath, or just catch up period! In addition, to feeling a little claustrophobic I've been less than confident about my body too. In June of last year I hired a personal trainer. No, I don't make that kind of money, but I decided to finally do something for myself. I did great! I mean I've never felt so good, it wasn't that I necessarily lost a lot of weight, it was more that my whole body was changing. I lost 2 dress sizes and about 10 pounds. Because I've been so busy lately, I can't seem to find the time to workout (I can no longer afford the trainer, so this doesn't help). At any rate, just not feeling uber confident, so I decided to wear something peppy!! I like this outfit, in fact, I have had this blue and green blouse for a few months but haven't been able to figure out how to wear it, I think I got it!
My Outfit:
Blue and Green blouse- $6, Old Navy
Yellow Cardigan- $3, thrifted
Jeans (turned capri)- $9, TJ Maxx
Heels- $9, Payless
Belt (unseen)-$7, Burlington
Brooch- $0.80 , thrifted
Earrings- $1, Dollar Tree
Total Cost: $35.80


I have a love/hate relationship with these heels. I love the texture and the classic nature of them, but especially at this time of year, when I'm really pale, they sort of blend into my skin!

Alright ladies...

I apologize for the delay in the promised post...I was reading all your lovely blogs on sunday and then my power went out due to a storm, so I couldn't then. Then, yesterday the power was back on until about 7, which is when I got home from class. I think the power company was trying to repair some of the downed lines, because there was certainly nothing else going on. At any rate, I am heading to class, but when I get home tonight I PROMISE to post the outfits!!! Thank you for all you patience!

I know, I know

So I know that I promised to continue blogging as usual on Sunday, but my camera had other plans. It decided to completely break down. I don't really know what happened, it just quit working. So, today I tried to turn it on and wah-lah it was back to normal. Freaky poltergeist camera!!! That being said, I plan on doing a recreation of outfits for you on Sunday, can't tomorrow, must work all day long :( Anyway I hope you all forgive me and my lovely camera, see you soon on the web!

What a mess!

Yep, that's the way my life's been, a mess!! I've been so incredibly busy with school, I had to prepare my proposal for my thesis and then present that to my been insane!

I know I don't know what's going on, so I plan on seeing the Doc to see what it is I'm agonizing over. Ah, don't worry I'll live :) At any rate, this is actually what I wore on Thursday. I do plan on posting regularly again on Sunday!
