This was me sitting at a standstill in the parking deck. It took about 30 minutes to find a parking space! Was it worth it battling the crowds today to get an awesome pair of shoes? Yes. Yes it was!
I have something special I'm doing on Monday and wanted to make sure I look my best. My motto has always been to dress for the job you aspire to, not necessarily for the one you're currently working. I did that right after college when I started working as a teller in a financial institution. Instead of dressing in the normal khakis and knit shirt, I dressed like our manager: suits, dresses, dress pants, blouses. You get the idea. It didn't take long, less than a year actually, until I was part of the management team. It took more than dressing the part, but I think it got upper management's attention and was definitely part of the reason for the promotion.
Now for the exciting part, YEA! I think this is what I'm going to wear on Monday: red seamed shift dress from Loft. This dress looks a lot more fitted on me, not sure if that's a good or bad thing. Also looks much longer on me, than on the 6 foot model. Now I can't decide what shoes to wear. What do you think?
Should I wear these?
I had to go down 1/2 size! I guess my feet have lost weight too! I thought these made more of a statement paired with the red dress, very uptown and cool!
On a fashion level I like the animal print, but I think the black Mary Jane's are more sexy and cut low enough to allow some of your toes to peep out. Is that called toe cleavage? I'm kind of leaning towards the Mary Jane's. Especially with such a classic dress, a classic shoe just nails it. I'd like to know your thoughts though. What do you think? For all of you men out there I know which ones you'll pick!
I have several options for jewelry. Notice how nothing matches exactly. I like it that way.
O.K. I think the second set wins hands down. It just pops against the red. You can NEVER go wrong with bling! ;)
While I was shopping today, if I saw something that caught my eye, I tried it on. One thing in particular just made my day! It made me reflect on this weight loss journey (shocking, I know!). The one thing was this shirt:
It made me feel pretty, feminine, curvy, and sexy. Before this journey I didn't feel like any of those things and now I do! Feeling this way is FAR more valuable and gratifying and worth whatever sacrifice it took to get here. The sacrifice is SO WORTH IT! And the workouts are fun!
After shopping it was easy to stick with eating a healthy meal because these feelings motivated me to eat healthy, so I can continue to feel pretty, feminine, curvy, and sexy! I love this lifestyle. It's not deprivation, not all, it's a life of abundance!
Are you living a life of abundance? If not, you can too. Just make the decision to change to a healthy balanced lifestyle and DON'T look back. Your life will never be the same!
Goodnight everyone. Thanks for stopping by.
