We have our trip to Mexico coming up in less than a month (so excited) and I decided that I needed some new stuff for the trip. One of the things that I need is a purse/tote to take along because well, let's face it, my purse right now is a diaper bag and the purse that I am going to switch to for spring will be a sort of diaper bag but is really just a big purse but it is Coach and I'm not taking my Coach purse to Mexico. That was a really long sentence. Anyhoo, I was at Target today and I saw this yellow purse. Yellow is not a color that I wear because it just doesn't look good on me but I thought that maybe I can accessorize with yellow because yellow goes with alot of things (black, pink, red, blue, you get my point). It was on clearance and I bought it but I'm not sure if I am loving it or thinking it is a little obnoxious. What do you think? I think maybe I need one of those big chunky bead necklaces in yellow to go with (you know the kind that look kind of like bubble gum balls).
I haven't bought a ton of stuff for the trip or at least that's the story I'm sticking to on here in case Shaun actually decides to read my blog. :)
I did make a trip over to my favorite store the other day (White House Black Market) and did get a couple of things because I had some coupons to use.
I've been needing a cute white top and I liked this a lot when I tried it on. I think I can wear it with many different things and I like the little flowers:
I also got this top. The strap is removable so it can be strapless. I got a pair of dress black shorts to go with it that are so comfy.
I also thought I would need a dress for dinner one night on the vacation so I started trying on dresses. I absolutely loved this one. It is so cute and had pockets (love dresses with pockets). They were almost sold out of it (even though it was $168 - ouch!) and only had a size 4 or a size 10. I needed a 6 so the lady said "just try on the 4 because it will probably fit you". I gave her a yeah right look but decided to try it on anyway and it did fit. I then thought that I now wanted to buy it just because it was a size 4. After staring at myself in the mirror in the dress for a few minutes I decided that I could wear a dress that I already had and shouldn't spend $168 on a dress that I won't have that many occasions to wear. Can you say will power? I usually have none when it comes to this store.
After I tried it on I needed the sales lady to bring me a pair of capri's and she brought me a size 4. I started laughing hysterically and said "uh no, I'm bigger on bottom". That's how non-proportioned I am. 4 on top, 8 on bottom. What's with that? Pear shaped? I think so. Oh well, it felt good for a second to hold a pair of pants that was a size 4. Maybe someday.
The other major problem I am having is the swimsuit. I have one that is o.k. that I actually bought at Costco for $30. It is my sporty suit though for swimming with dolphins, para sailing, etc. and I'm looking for something cuter for lounging by the pool....and having no luck. Anyone else ever try on 20 bathing suits and not like one? UGH. I'm considering a "miraclesuit" that makes you "look 10 lbs slimmer in one minute" because 10 more lbs is what I'd like to lose so maybe I can look like I did until I do!
Speaking of losing weight, I seem to have hit a plateau. I lost 12 lbs in about 8 weeks and now even though I'm doing the same things....not losing any more. Anybody have any tips for breaking through that plateau? Please don't say no more cocktails because it is Friday and it's cocktail hour!!!
BTW, if you're looking for a lo-cal cocktail, try this. You've probably seen it if you watch The Real Housewives of New York City and if you don't watch it, you should because it is pure entertainment!
How was that for an all over the place post? I'm a bit frazzled today if you can't tell.
Happy weekend everyone!
