have you ever shopped at a dots? i had never set foot in one, and i’d never really heard anyone talk about dots before a month or so ago. the folks at dots reached out to me and asked me to stop by a store in raleigh to shop with a $25 gift card. so, i took the opportunity to stop by and put together some outfits, check out the accessories section, and take a bunch of photos. (shout out to my boyfriend for the excellent help at the “shoot!”)
how could one be obsessed by something that’s totally just a t-shirt and that i could totally make myself? i blame the 90′s. and really, i don’t see anything wrong with a little bump n grind … just that price tag. what to you think? would you buy it? #nettacovets
my boyfriend is up north visiting his family for a little bit and fixing his car, and so i’ve got a lot more responsibilities in the morning than i normally do when he’s around to help out. that leads to running a little bit late and feeling a bit lazy when picking out what to wear. an easy go to for mornings like that is a maxi dress. then all i have to do is throw my hair in a bun, add a headband, grab some colorful sandals and jewelry, and i’m set to go! do you have a go-to maxi dress or outfit for mornings when you’re not ready to put together your next work of outfit artistry?
tuesdays is still weigh-in day, but i’ve been really busy, so obviously i haven’t shared how far i’ve come since i posted the first weigh-in day on jan 29. i haven’t really come far at all in the weight department. in fact, after having lost a few more lbs, i gained them back over the last week. i’m struggling, as usual. i’ve been struggling at the same weight for so long now that i can’t remember how long it’s been. there have been so many false starts. i get caught up in living life and don’t track my food or plan things, and then i just find myself eating more than i really actually want of something that’s not really that tasty. sometimes eating is just a knee-jerk reaction for me.
