Gonna just put it out there, I am grumpy this evening.
Home from being out of town for almost two weeks and I feel discombobulated.
I have lots of blog posts I want to write but have house work, school work, yard work all fighting for my attention…along with laundry, ironing and grocery shopping. I need to get back on track eating better and get this booty back in the gym.
I almost put together the outfit for this week’s The Blended Blog Style Perspectives prompt (plaid) before I left for my trip but ran out of time. So tonight, after working all day and running 2.5 miles at the gym, I came home and threw on my plaid. Nothing fit right; my “girls” look like a droopy shelf sticking out from below my chin and I felt like ground pork stuffed into a denim skirt sausage casing.
So let’s get this over with and then I am going up to bed!
Looks kinda ok when it isn’t on me!
Ralph Lauren plaid blouse, Style & Co. denim skirt from Macy’s, mustard long cami from Jane.com, Loft cardi, American Eagle flats from Payless, Miche bag, gifted (from BFF Sharon) turquoise pendant.
Should have just stopped there.
But no, I had to try on the outfit.
Glutton for punishment.
I knew I was having a ‘chubby’ day.
I knew I had just returned from ten days away from home, not eating, sleeping or working out well.
What was I thinking?
I even decided to beg PC to take pics for me, and outside, no less, in 45 mph wind gusts.
I had to hold my shirt tail down to keep it from blowing up over my head.
I reminded him to try to focus the camera which isn’t always a guarantee when I have to coerce him to play photog but now that I think about it, I probably should have gone with REAL blurry for today’s pics.
For some reason, I thought standing by our rock wall might make me look younger, thinner, and happier.
Yeah, not so much.
Look at my poor hands balled up into fists, ha!
I am grumpy.
And how ’bout that pretty hair?
It’s just not fair that some (young, thin, long-haired) women can look so perfect when their hair is gently tousled by a breeze.
So, there you have it, my mad in plaid look.
Hope you will link-up with us by clicking below or uploading a pic of yourself in plaid to Facebook or Instagram then tagging it with #TheBlendedBlogStyle.
