Straight up

Heeding the advice of my very fashion conscious sister I bought my first pair of straight leg jeans. I have to tell you this was a scary purchase for me. I am pretty paranoid about my clothes. I don't like how I look and dressing any way that would draw attention to me makes me nauseated. Nevertheless since both pair of jeans had holes in the knees I figured now would be as good a time as any to jump.
On Saturday I put them on with a relatively cute blouse and attempted to wear them with boots.
I should mention I have to buy short jeans usually, I don't consider myself short but apparently jean companies do. They didn't have any straight-legs in short so I bough regular. So when I put the boots on my jeans bunched up . They looked stupid! I don't know if it's the boots of the jeans but I decided I'll only be wearing these pants with heels.
I'm a once a week heels girl. I wear them to church and that's about it. So slipping them on and heading out to go shopping was not my wisest decision. Halfway through our night out I was dying to yank my shoes off but I was a little afraid that if I took them off my feet would swell and I would have to walk around barefoot the rest of the night. (Come to think of it that might have been preferable to heel hell.)
My husband said I looked fine, but as I mentioned in a previous post I pay little heed to his editorial comments on my wardrobe since he asks me all the time if I have already done my makeup, when I have only been out of the shower long enough to put clothes on.
I need to start taking photos of my little adventures. I'll work on that.

My challenge this week is a Facebook Fast. I am giving it up for a week. I spend more time than I care to admit on facebook. It's enough that I need a break so I can get my priorities back in line. I have a lot of goals and dreams but I can't get anything done with my rear glued to the chair. I don't trust myself to stay off though, so I'll be taking some extreme measures- new password known only by the husband.

I have been going to the gym with my husband and I have started reading several interesting books about health. I am enjoying my workouts too! I kicked off a six week plan today to eat as natural as possible with a daily workout regimen. I am sure to make mistakes but it's written down and posted for me to see everyday. I'll keep you updated!

  1. Stuart and I started a new eating and exercising regime last week and so far it's going really well. It's amazing the difference a week can make.

    As for your skinny jeans, other people probably wouldn't even notice that they're scrunching up with your boots on. We tend to notice these details ourselves.
