Yesterday was a beautiful day and the temps are supposed to continue to rise to near 80 by Friday.

I am starting off the work week in a casual fashion.

Demin Vest – Goodwill//  Gold Silk Blouse – closet staple circa ’90’s// Tie Dye Skirt – Marshalls

Distressed Pumps – Marshalls// Bracelets – Flea Market Vendor// Ring – Payless

 

I’ve had these black, ballerina slippers for several years and kept them in the laundry room only to wear them out to get the mail.

I changed the color, added some polka dots and now I will wear them further than just to the mail box.

Stuffed plastic grocery bags inside

Used can of Rust-OLeum Spray Paint

Sprayed 1st coat in the garage - allowed to dry overnight

Sprayed 2nd coat in garage - allowed to dry overnight

Completely dry

Once the shoes were completely dried, I used white fabric paint and a pencil eraser to make the polka dots.

Dip eraser lightly into fabric paint

For a Facebook “like” I received full size MiO Liquid Water Enhancer which my son loves.  There wasn’t a coupon included for a future purchase but it wasn’t a mini sample either – in my book that’s a win.

Today God blessed us with a glorious sunny and warm Sunday.  Heading to the grocery store I opted to wear a maxi dress instead of jeans but wore a top as it’s not warm enough for me just yet.

Maxi Dress – Rainbow Shop // Top – Rugged Wearhouse// Belt – Rainbow Shop

Sandals – gift from Africa // Bracelets – Flea Market Vendor

On Monday I will begin another month on Nutrisystem.

I started the program in February and lost 10 lbs, then deferred the next shipment for 30-days and have kept the weight off.  I will never look like Janet Jackson because I don’t have a personal trainer to compliment the program but my goal is to lose another 10 lbs.

The Nutrisystem program is easy to follow and the foods taste good but the hardest part for me is to drink 8 glasses of water daily.

Yesterday I hit up the Goodwill stores in Thorndale and Chadds Ford, PA.  The clerks were busily filling the racks with Spring and Summer wear and I was able to snag a few items to add to my wardrobe.  Today I am taking a box to the Goodwill in Middletown because for everything I bring home, I remove something from my closet and donate.

I’ve decided to take pictures while in the store even though other customers look at me like…”who is she and why is she taking pictures”, it makes me feel like Re’gine  in the episode of “Living Single” when she pulled together an outfit while working at “Le Rag Bin” for the soap opera “Palo Alto” – Smooches!
