Blue Bird

I've been slacking lately. I know. Apologies for not responding to your lovely comments or posting on your blogs! I have every intention of catching up and getting back into the swing of things. I've been feeling very uninspired by my closet lately. I have things to pull together outfits no doubt. But….my biggest deterrent to finding things that are "Wearable" is that the closet is in utter chaos these days. Must go though it all reorganise ASAP.

On top of the closet confessions, I've had some pretty tough days with tummy troubles back in full swing. This time around we are cutting out veggies/fibre from my diet because it seems to irritate me more than give me the nutrients I need. Talk about bummer because A) I love veggies and B) I hate the toll its taking on my body and the pleasure I get from eating broccoli. Yes I know I am slightly different ;). Looking forward to my Doctors appt in one month to figure out if this is still a bad case of IBS, Crohn's, Colitis, potential stomach ulcers? or some other Gastro-intestinal related issue. I want answers!

On the bright side - Starting a new workout schedule on Monday with a 4 day cycle! Time to gain more muscle, get toned and stop getting through half-a$$ed workouts. Most of all, get back to my early am routines! I have the rest of this week to take it easier. But, no nonsense Monday's are beginning. Who's in with me :)

Summer seems to be coming to an end too, so the next few posts will be the last of the outfits worn on warmer days. Kat took these photos of me and we played around with the setting and some of the photos had a blue tinge. Loved the effect, though we're not exactly sure how or why it happened!














What I am Wearing:
Dress: Target
Blazer: Zara
Shoes: Nine West (these are one of the pairs I purchased in Miami - love the silver flats!)
Necklace: Gifted

  2. So sorry to hear about your tummy troubles :( I hope you can figure out soon what is going on. I have the same issues about my wardrobe lately, so I know how it feels not to be inspired by what we own! Hopefully the coming of a new season will inspire us!

  4. That tinge was cool! Sorry to hear about your tummy troubles woman! Sounds like you are on it though and are going to getting it figured out. My b.f. has been sick all week with this tooth infection and it has been so scary! He had chills in the middle of the night and a fever. They have to wait till he gets off the antibiotics to take the teeth out. Good health should not be taken advantage of.

  12. Mulitple comments for this post:
    1) You have such lovely legs!
    2) You have inspired me to make more of an effort with my wardrobe.  You always come up with original outfit ideas.  I realized it's been too easy for me lately to just go from lounge/pj's to workout clothes and nothing more.  So this whole week I've been digging out my nice jackets, playing with jewelry, and just making more of an effort to look put together.  Thank you for bringing me out of my rut!
    3) No veggies?!?!  Are you doing like an All Greens powder or something, or just taking lots of vitamins?  I've been having tummy troubles too but I'm pretty sure it's from LACK of fibre :S  My heart goes out to you though.... I don't know what I'd do without my greens.
    4) Are you training with Nick again?  So excited for you to get back into it :)  I guess I'll be seeing you at the gym more!

  13. I know how you feel about being uninspired by your own closet.  I am constantly re-evaluating everything in my closet.  I need a trade program.  Wear something once and pass it along....that is so terrible I know.  Love your outfit though.  You are STUNNING!

    xo,

  14. Oh the vegetables! I found that I can only have so many veggies in a day. :) There is only so much vegetable fiber that your body can handle and then it starts freaking out. You are NOT alone. :D
