Outfit: Navy Blue Inspired By Amber




NL Stripe flats

That’s Amber the person, not Amber the colour! This outfit is my version of what Amber was wearing in her latest Shoe Challenge post. Only I went with flats because of all my summer shoes, this is the pair that I wear the most and the ones I will miss the most when it is no longer dry enough to wear them. I also have a few errands to run at lunchtime, and then the Tesco shop to do after work.


Last night I drove over to see my parents. They were pleased to see me and I managed to teach them a couple of things about their PC that they didn’t know before. I’m impressed that they are both embracing the technology so well – they are researching their family trees online and they are both quite au fait with the workings of the internet now.


My latest Sarenza voucher arrived last night and I wasted no time in spending it. You’ll see what I ordered when they arrive next week.


So it’s weigh day and I’m stoked to have lost another 3lbs this week! That makes 12lbs overall and it pushes me down into the next stone bracket too. We’re visiting with some friends this weekend and I know there’s a meal out planned for Saturday night, so I’ll have to make sure I’m good and don’t go too much over my points each day. And on that note, I’ve booked in for Boxercise at the gym tonight.

  1. Ooh! I love it - and I'm hugely flattered to have provided inspiration! I think I can guess what you ordered from Sarenza - looking forward to seeing if I'm right :)

  2. Thank you! And your outfits are a total source of inspiration to me, I love the things you wear.

    I don't think you are right about the Sarenza order though, but wait and see!

  3. You look great and well done on the weight loss surely you don't need to lose much more???
    Have you ever had your hair in a different style i could see you with a cool fringe.

  4. I love that blazer!!


  5. Thank you both!

    Cooking Cat: I have a little more to lose to get to my goal weight - don't worry, it's not unrealistic or anything, just around the weight I was a few years back.
    And yes, I did have a fringe at one point. If you go back in the archives to Nov/Dec 2008 you'll see it and you can judge for yourself whether or not it was a mistake!
