OOTD recap :: of my fave outfits of Summer 2015 and #waterlogue

Some thoughts before I take another blog hiatus until school goes back in session on August 25:

  • Have an irony: for all that I complain about my lack of finesse with the color green, it seems that I didn’t do too shabbily with it at all, seeing as how two of my faves sport la verde.
  • I am thoroughly besotted with Waterlogue and I have the wonderful Anne @ SpyGirl to thank for a very inexpensive and yet utterly satisfying, time-sucking obsession.
  • I have officially lost the campaign against expansion. I portion controlled like a mofo; I did both brisk walking and tabata on the treadmill; I even included some resistance training with regular push-ups; I incorporated such a boatload of veggies and fruit into my diet, it’s a wonder I’ve not gone into gastrointestinal turmoil. And, full disclosure, I’m still a size 12. I don’t know whether to continue on this path and hope something miraculous happens in my favor, start my cigarettes-and-water diet all over again in a purely self-destructive attempt to punish my seemingly fruitless efforts, or just resign myself to fluffiness in my old age and bid adieu to about half my closet because the items no longer fit. Anyone wanna chime in here? (Pssst! You do realize option #2 was just facetiousness, right?)

Anyhow, that’s all she wrote, folks! See you at the end of August!

 

OOTD :: of the final phone outfit and decisions, decisions…

I’m actually selling this blazer on Poshmark because I can barely button it anymore. But in my Mad Hunt to replace it, I find myself coming up short. Do I just keep this beauty, then, since it’s not as if I need to button blazers in SoCal? Or do I trust in my hero, Stacy London, and get rid of it because it’s ill-fitting?

Well, new to me anyway.

I never thought I’d be able to pull off a jumpsuit, but there was just something so disarming and darling about this piece, and it wheedled its way home with me during that mad Lilly launch day. It’s a testament to its comfort and cuteness that it survived the culling/return process.

So, huzzah for jumpsuits!

Jumpsuit – Lilly Pulitzer for Target
Heels – Qupid
