This skirt has been a workhorse in my wardrobe. I’ve had it for years; I don’t remember exactly when I got it, but I want to say 2008 or 2009? Actually, as far as I can tell from searching the archives, it first surfaces in 2009 (um…LOL at my pose/face/everything!!). I had worn it more as an around-the-house skirt the last several years, since it had some stains on it. Now, it’s quite large on me, and I like it better that way, so I venture out in it from time to time (I removed the stains!).
The tank top is also very old – I don’t know why I don’t have one of these in white. I’ve had the hardest time finding an opaque white tank top that’s still relatively fitted. I like my Everlane Ryan tanks, but they’re not what I want for wearing with cardigans and jeans/and or slouchy pants. I do have several white James Perse racerback tanks, but they’re very sheer and I’m tired of messing with racerbacks…I don’t like to think so much about which bra to wear.
I also don’t wear tanks or sleeveless shirts much other than around the house or to Pure Barre because I honestly don’t feel fully dressed without sleeves. And I like to keep my shoulders/upper arms covered from the sun. Today, it was just too hot to even care. And I mostly spent time at an outdoor shopping center, so I didn’t NEED to have sleeves anyway. Although of course, I froze to death whenever I went inside a store and couldn’t wait to get back outside. Ugh.
And, as you can see, my upper arms are still quite flabby – in spite of all the work I do on them in Pure Barre. A lot of that is hereditary, but I hope with more weight loss I can minimize that even more. And those little bits of fat at my underarms drive me BATTY!! I don’t really care that much how they look anymore, I just feel like I’m working so hard, they should be gone! But that’s not always the way it works – you can’t target where you lose fat when you lose weight. On me, my boobs always shrink first when I lose weight. Not exactly where I want it to come from!!
Anyway, I know I said yesterday it’s too hot for outfits, but since I actually wore something moderately photo-worth yesterday, I thought I’d post it. And yes, in case you ever wondered, the outfits I post are actually what I WEAR. 😉
