Today’s outfit is shades of black and gray, and I love it because of the fun items included. The wrap sweater is perfect for winter, and looks great paired with a long-sleeve striped t-shirt and skinny jeans. Add in booties, a Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag and some fun ball earrings, and it makes a great outfit.
This article is one of a series showing the many outfit combinations I’ve designed from my 24-piece Fall/Winter Capsule wardrobe.
Here are the items from today’s outfit:
Check out these blogs that I’m linking up with, including Anne in Residence who’s “Currently” linkup is this week. This month, we are sharing what we are currently finishing, subscribing, wishlisting, watching, and hearting.
I love a good craft project, especially when it is home decor. When I saw this unfinished wood “Gather” sign on Jane last year, I knew it was perfect for a spot in my dining room. I’ve given it a few coats of paint, but it needs at least one more. I’m debating whether to hang it like this or ask Kevin to mount it on wood backing, maybe in a whitewash.
Kevin and I have been following a ketogenic diet since the beginning of the year, though I certainly haven’t been perfect about it. I want this to be a lifestyle change, not a temporary diet, so I think it is important not to be too restrictive. I can hardly believe it, but I have lost 8 pounds just in January!
That amounts to almost 6% of my body weight. My overall goal is to lose about 25 pounds, and then maintain. So I’m thrilled! I’ve tried using a ketogenic diet before, and have never lost this much this fast. I have to attribute the difference to the exogenous ketone supplements that my sister-in-law told us about. I started taking them about a week into January, and they really seem to have made a big difference. I know I’ve talked about these a couple of times recently, but I just can’t get over what a difference they have made.
After such awesome results, I ended up subscribing to receive the supplements monthly. That way I will be sure to not run out (plus the price is discounted over 20% for auto-ship orders).
This one is easy – I’m dying to go see “The Greatest Showman”. I haven’t gone yet because I wanted to take the boys and I traveled so much in January it just didn’t happen. My co-workers and friends have been raving about this movie, as well as the soundtrack.
Spring is just around the corner (thankfully – so tired of snow!). I’ve been thinking about transition items for my spring capsule wardrobe. Hot pink is my color this spring – I just love it! I’m debating about this lace peplum top
Have you seen Manhunt? I was completely captivated by this story about the capture of Ted Kaczynski. Kevin and I watched this one after the kids were in bed.
I’ve also been watching The Good Wife when I’m working out. I love how independent Alicia is!
The boys and I have been watching When Calls the Heart too.
A friend of mine recently introduced me to Lemongrass Spa. They sell natural beauty and personal products. I’ve been using their Pomegranate Body Polish, and it is amazing. My legs are haven’t been this soft and smooth since my 20’s. And I love the pomegranate scent.
With the winter weather, I’ve been trying to go a few days between shampoos. Suave Dry Shampoo is my absolute best friend for keeping my hair looking great longer. I’ve tried more expensive brands and none of them have worked as well.
Finally, I’m still loving my reorganized kitchen – see how I updated my cabinet storage here. I especially love these under-cabinets shelves because I can more easily get to each item in my cabinet (and put things away easier too).
