Incorporating a Budget Piece

Yesterday, I received a new pair of Aerosoles Women's Octagon, Black Suede Pumps and a Urban CoCo Women's Long Sleeve Coffee Dress (inexpensive budget item).

I was not sure whether the dress would work with some of my existing items, and quite pleased when most of the pieces I tried with the dress, worked.

Here are similar items that worked with the dress:

I added a body shaper slip to the above list of items. The dress is rather transparent. I wore the following cami/slip set with the dress.

I am always looking for items like this. No worries about dry cleaning and I can easily add a blazer, scarf or coat to make it office/meeting friendly. Though I am dieting, I am still not in my older suits and right now, solutions like this work for me.

Lightweight Additions, I Really Like

New additions to my wardrobe, suitable for light Summer/Fall evenings.

Below, I have provided the links for the items shown, however the Brown Lightweight Cardigan Shrug is no longer available.

I tried on all of the outfits shown in the photos above and happy with the look the shrugs add to each look. The layered look using the mocca & brown shrugs is surprisingly striking.

I ordered the rayon blue harem pants in an XL because I wanted a full effect. I am very pleased with this purchase, however think I will have the pants dry cleaned to maintain the vibrant blue coloring.

Costumes

Starting to update the Gift Ideas post and ran across an idea I thought might be interesting for a kid's birthday, costume or Halloween party theme.

These NFL youth costume theme sets could be a hit with the kids and cost between $17 and $75 depending on size and team.

I am only showing four of the theme sets, however most of the NFL teams are available.


Are you ready for the holidays? I am trying to get into the swing of things, however I am a little late with some of things I want to do this year.

Last Days of Summer 2019

I am on a diet. You may recall, earlier this summer I decided to add to my wardrobe. Two of the dresses I ordered were a little tight so I decided to take seriously a diet.

The photos below, show the two dresses and my current weight. I lost several pounds in August, so can now wear the two dresses in question, however decided to continue with the diet.

Without my much loved treadmill, I have had to resort to habits used in the past to maintain my weight, i.e., simply not eating. My incentive? My old clothes. I have a lot of classic suits, so I am not worried about dated looks- and quite frankly, happy with my progress.

That said, things like the boots shown in the photos below are about 3 years old, however never worn. I am having fun thinking about the old things I can wear with these slouchy boots.

Slouchy boots are not in this upcoming season? Not sure, however I like long skirts (just below the calves) with this heeled boot so I am sure I can come up with a classic look.

As noted in the caption for the navy pumps, I wanted to purchase a suede pair of navy pumps. Instead I may purchase a navy dress I already have in aqua green (shown in the above photo). The style is flattering on me, however I will have to purchase the smaller size.

My diet? Eating a meal (daily) like the one shown in the following set of photos. I may have a mini bagel either mid-morning or late afternoon and that is about all.

I am ready for Fall 2019. Football, new business projects, my old clothes on a slimmer me.
