Khakis, Cream and Green

Cupcakes (any idea whats on the brain right now ;)),

I am literally 3 weeks from competition day! So excited! I thought that today I would just post a work out fit. I had a fabulous day. I worked, picked up my car (its broken still but they didn't charge me for looking whoo!), went to Wal-Mart, Grocery shopping and cooked!

I have to say that its been an all round productive day. I also want to thank EVERYONE who has been commenting on the blog and providing me with the encouragement I need to continue through the home stretch.

LOVE YOU ALL!

Background on the picture. It was chilly. But Kat took these photos of me in G-town, and made it as quick as possible haha.









What I am Wearing:
Skirt: Hand me Down from Auntie R (its a good 25 years old!)
Blouse: RW and Co. Auntie R was feeling generous so I have borrowed indefinitely... :)
Bangles: Given to me by the woman who had the most style and grace (my Grandma!)
Shoes: DKNYC (I bought these shoes in an outlet in NYC and they were 1/3 of what I paid for my black ones in Toronto grrr.) 


I hope you are all enjoying your Saturday as much as I am...eating my egg whites, spinach and peas

yummy!

    I love all of the little details in this outfit!  The pleating of the pencil skirt, the neck of the top, the cute bangles, and the cut outs in the shoes are amazing.  Plus you look amazing!

  10. Mmmm ... I love Saturdays.  I am always so sad when they are over.  There is something so innately relaxing about a Saturday -- probably because we know that we have one more day of the weekend before returning to the weekday grind.  
    4 weeks until competition day??  GETTTTSTOKEDDDD.

    I'm sensing a distinct upbeatness to your latest posts...that attitude is going to power you right through these next 4 weeks. Your jewellery collection (borrowed or not) is stunning, and I love how well the closeup your bracelets turned out. Cooking lesson - yes! and we also need to do the closet outfit-picking thing out. - Kat

  33. You look so amazing! I love the colors you have put together here and that blouse is fabulous! Way to go for sticking with your workouts and most especially the food regimen that goes into prepping for competition. I prepped for a figure comp several years back but lost my nerve and didn't do it. Stage fright! I remember the comments though> why do you eat like that? don't you want a piece of cake? Have a doughnut! One won't hurt you... blah, blah and the list goes on! You will do great, I am sure! Keep on keeping on!
    Thanks for visiting me and your nice comment!
