Playing it up in Purple

Friends

Just a reminder I am away for all of next week and this weekend. I have to apologise in advance for not responding to comments or keeping up with blogs. But I plan on enjoying my vacation in Miami to the fullest. Training will be involved but for the most part I will be a beach bum and I plan on getting my eat on. Though Since the competition I have put on 10 pounds! yep just like that! I am not eating a crazy amount but I think I jsut screwed with my metabolism and so now my body is learning how to find a happy medium.

I will keep you posted on my scale woes :S

on to the outfit. I am in love with this dress! I actually had this made. I took this from Auntie R's closet but it was a bit long and was not shaped top, which I believe was a gift from India or Dubai. i went to a alterations place and gave them my vision. and this is what they came up with. I LOVE LOVE the pattern, the colours just everything about this piece and it definitely needed to be worn.








What I am Wearing:
Dress: Kurti Top altered into a dress
Belt: J Crew
Shoes: Expressions (The Bay)
Bangles: My Grandma!
Flower: Mother Nature : )


What are your plans for the summer? any of you taking a trip?

  4. Hmm Neeners, that doesnt look like 10lbs to me, but if you say so. I guess it's just like a boxer. Have fun in Miami! You will make many friends in South Beach. They are so fit there, so I saw on t.v. Take LOTS of outfit pics for me and Auntie R.

  7. Enjoy your vacation! We'll look forward to hearing all about it when you get back. 

    I'm enjoying a totally different part of the world this summer. My husband & I are on the tropical island of Saipan as short term missionaries. Though we're not really here for a vacation, this tiny island has spectacular beaches & scenery & we're taking in everything we can. One thing I haven't found in the house we're staying in is a bathroom scale so there's no weigh ins for me this summer! Hopefully I won't have gained too much by the time we get home about a month from now.
