I'm leaving for Boston tomorrow! Woooooohoooooooo! I'm kind of excited to get in an airplane again because my experience from flying back and forth multiple times each year for college has taught me that there is no better time to really listen to music than whilst soaring in a steel tube at 35,000 feet in the air.
And guys, I have plenty of music in need of listening to because of upcoming concert dates. Guess who will be on repeat on my ol' mp3 player? Bon Jovi, the BACKSTREET BOYS, and -- hoping to send some good vibes their way so that they'll include a Texas tour date this year -- Soundgarden!
It'll be quiet here on the blog for a few days until I return next week. The weather forecast leaves much to be desired, but what can you do? Like Outkast once said, "You can plan a pretty picnic, but you can't predict the weather."
Today's outfit is inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Tien of adiaphane. She always puts together such wonderfully romantic outfits, and when I saw her in this effortlessly chic look, I knew I had to mimic it the best I could.
raglan sweater, f21
knit skirt, vintage via etsy
monocle necklace, gift
gold bangle, kate spade
heart ring, coach
skull ring, ebay
leaf ring, australia
I don't have the gorgeous updo and filmy skirt like Tien's, but I'll take what I can, haha!
And, for those of you who are keeping track, here's a short little weight loss update. I've received some awesome emails from others who are struggling to lose weight, so I hope to show you that it can be done, even if your progress is slow.
Here's a little visual guide that I put together. I initially had 35 pounds to lose altogether in order to get back into a healthy weight range:
Now, I've lost 8 pounds after 2 months! Woohoo! That's an entire dumbbell eliminated!
I just have a few more dumbbells to go. Let me tell you, picking up the 35 pounds worth of free weights really put into perspective just how much I had gained. Yeesh! So don't give up on losing weight, even if you falter -- trust me, I've messed up in dieting and exercising a few times already, but I'm still sticking to this and seeing it through. Come July, I'll be fit again!
