Too Much of a Good Thing

Kerry Washington

shirt: thrifted, pants: NY&Co., shoes/necklace/belt: Target, 

laughing a little about the electrical outlet between my legs...haha

Over indulging in Easter candy and beverages throughout the past week has led to an almost 3 pound weight gain for me. A few pounds may not seem extreme, but I can feel it, so the photo for this week’s Inspiration Monday at Two Birds provided the perfect excuse to wear a flowy over-sized blouse so that I could look pulled together even though I wasn’t quite feeling like it.  I added the belt so that there was a little more shape and definition to my outfit.  I don’t own any bright shoes that I feel like went well with this blouse, but wanted to still wear a fun shoe like Kerry Washington did, so I went with the animal print shoe.  I’ve owned them for years, but never would’ve thought of wearing them to work!

  1. Jess, You look great! But I know what you mean about overindulging in Easter candy. I spent all week trying to widdle those extra pounds off too! I love this outfit - classy yet comfortable and very flattering!

    I feel terrible but I accidentally deleted your comment. I am going to blame it on my dang iPhone not my clumsy fat fingers. I am so glad that you liked the mug! Can't wait to read about it and glad to have met a new friend!

    Happy blogging!

    1. I'm hoping my run tonight helped the cause to get back to my usual weight. :) Our phones get the best of us, don't they?! Hope you enjoy the post today and can't wait to hear what you think of your mug!

    1. Thanks Beth! I can't believe they sat in my closet for so many years. I'm just happy that they're a style and print that shouldn't go out of style!

  5. Easter candy is for sure worth the 3 extra pounds! NO ONE would EVER notice either. Cute outfit!
