I spent all day yesterday thinking that it was Friday. I was already starting to plan my weekend and was celebrating the end of my cleanse. And, then, reality struck when I found out that it was only Thursday. I surely can’t be the only one who can’t keep up with the days of the week. I swear, since I stay home more these days, it gets harder and harder to keep track of the days. But, the good thing is, yesterday was the last day of my cleanse, so I at least got that part right.
I stayed strong with what I was eating, and I didn’t cheat even though it was tempting. One night there were ribs, cheesy potatoes, and cheesecake, but I had a salad with no cheese and a small amount of dressing. Another night, we celebrated my DIL’s birthday, and we had thick rib-eye steaks, fresh green beans, stuffed jalapeno peppers, baked potatoes, macaroni-n-cheese, and raspberry cake. But, I stayed firm and had green beans and half of a sweet potato with only cinnamon. Did I have more energy? Did I lose weight? Did I feel good and sleep well? Yes, yes, and yes to all of those. But, and I ready to add some protein to my salad, and I really want a piece of that dang cake. Lol! It is a good thing that I sent that home with my DIL. Hahaha!
It would appear that I am in a “dress” phase. I’ve been loving dresses this year, which is strange since I’m not traveling. It seems like the stores have the cutest dresses this year, and I know there will come a day when I can travel again, so I have to buy them. Once I can go out to eat, go to the beach, or go to an event, I’ll be ready with a dress in my closet.
I love the delicate print on this dress, so I decided to add delicate jewelry to the look. I’m not wearing any overwhelming jewelry, or that is a statement piece. Instead, it is all neutral and compliments the outfit instead of competing with the look. The Regina hoop earrings with the pearl detail are the perfect size for most. They are less than 2″ long, so they aren’t intimidating for those who like smaller earrings. The hoops are elegant looking, but they still look great with a pair of jeans. I added the matching Amiya gold cuff bracelet set, and I love that these bracelets can be worn separately. If you didn’t look close, then you probably didn’t even notice my Rue long gold necklace. This necklace is very dainty and lightweight, and I wear it often paired with a shorter necklace.
I love the Scoop Ella Espadrille Wedge shoes. If you can find a cuter pair of shoes for $18.00, then please tell me about them. I wear these all of the time because they are perfect neutral shoes, they’re comfortable, and they look great with everything. I am wearing a size 9 in these, which is my usual size, and they fit me perfectly.
Okay, so about this dress…it is sold out. I took photos the other day and noticed that this pink color had sold out, but they still had the same dress in blue. I went on Instagram stories to talk about something while I was wearing this, and I started getting tons of messages about what I was wearing. I gave everyone the details, but I never thought that they would completely buy out the dress. 🙁 There are a few that are similar, and I swear they are just as cute.
