Purple and Pearls

I almost titled this post Purple, Pearls and Pudge because that’s how I feel right now! I have been indulging in fattening foods while hibernating during this long cold February. As a result, my jeans are fitting more tightly and I don’t like it! It’s time to shake it off, eat less and move around more.

Just a quick outfit share, not particularly inspired. I purchased this sweater during a thrift shopping spree several months ago. It has a sweet look that is more fitting with how I dressed a few years ago. I was drawn by the pearls and the price and the desire for new things in my closet.

I paired it with a white button down blouse, giving it a slightly preppy feel. I added a simple pearl bracelet and a pair of my lace covered ball earrings.

I’m okay with the overall look for a casual day, but I’ll probably pass the sweater on after a couple more wears.

I’ve been doing the hula hoop for exercise. I’m bored with the treadmill and other “regular” exercise. I can’t wait to get out and bike ride when the weather gets nicer. What’s your favorite non-exercise exercise?

  1. I am so tired of being stuck in the house. We live near several horse facilities on dirt roads. I am ready for a five-mile hike without ANY mud! No one around here is dressing up for anything. I guess the weather makes us slobs. I have not degenerated to wearing my flannel pj”s out, but I saw several men out and about sporting theirs. UGH!

    1. Haha! I actually wore my pjs to take my grandson to school since I didn’t have to get out of the car. The whole way there I was thinking how embarrassing it would be if I got stopped and had to get out of the car.

  2. Ann, That is the best part of a thrift store find…we can let it go with out remembering what we paid for it. I like the color very much and the pearls. You took a gorgeous photograph with that rich purple against that interesting building with the trellises. It looks like a gypsy wagon!

  3. Dear Ann
    My favourite exercise that does not seem like I’m exercising is to put on my walking shoes and walk for miles and miles. I always have the most wonderful sleep after walking, and it does shed off the kilos.

    1. Hi there! I think I would find walking in the cold more enjoyable than bike riding. The speed I get on the bicycle makes it pretty unbearable in the cold weather we’ve been having.
