Approximate outfit cost: $20.97

Sunday’s outfit is probably not what you might expect of me, seeing as… I’m wearing pants. πŸ˜€ Β I didΒ wear a dress to church.Β But I’m going to a graduation party, and I figured I had better get some wear out of these before they get too big. I’m losing weight again. I blame work.

I really love this belt. It was my grandpa’s– he passed away when I was 16, and just recently my grandma was getting rid of some of his things. She sent over his belts for my dad, and I snagged this one. My uncle made it. It’s beautiful.Β So like I mentioned, I’ve lost a little weight (I think around four pounds) and I Β just have to say… I don’t remember the last time I had collarbones that apparent. I just hope that if I continue to lose weight, I won’t get too bony. I’m not a fan of being really bony.

Also, I just realized I only uploaded three outfits this week (well, I only took pictures of three. The other ones were boring. Work.), so there aren’t many to vote on. I’m tempted to include the superhero costume. Hehe.

I hope you all have a beautiful Sunday!

    You look like Christmas today! Perhaps an outfit to keep in mind for the Christmas in July party… *wink wink*.

    LOVE the red pants!! WOOHOO!!

    Also, I think it’s really interesting how you’re losing weight while I’m gaining it. I’ve gained about 8lbs. since working, and I know it’s because I eat where I work. My meals are more regulated and I’m not skipping breakfast because I *have* to be nourished or I’ll pass out during the lunch rush. But this is good, because I’m at a healthy weight for my age now! Although it freaks me out a bit because I have *always* been a size 0 and now I’m not fitting my old jeans of five years wear that I thought would be with me forever. And I have to get new work pants, and skirts that used to fit high on my waist are too snug… it’s like I have to get acquainted with my own body all over again. And now that I’ve learned how to actually GAIN weight, I’m a tad bit freaked I won’t be able to stop. I mean, 8lbs. in 6 months is kind of a lot for someone who has NEVER been able to gain!

    Although it’s exciting because I’m nearly at the minimum requirement for donating blood! Which was my goal. πŸ™‚

    Wow, that was lengthy. But yes, your collarbone comment makes complete sense to me because of that. It’s somewhat terrifying losing OR gaining weight when you’re used to being in one place for so long.

    • Mara

      yay! Congratulations on gaining weight! Haha, I have a friend who is just like you– she is very thin for her age/height, and as I lose weight, she tries to gain weight. It really gives me more perspective on…y’know, knowing that there isn’t really one perfect size. 8lbs in six months IS a lot, but I’m sure you’ll eventually get used to the changes and stop. πŸ˜€

      It is SO weird to lose or gain weight when you’ve been at one place for so long.I’m actually kind of sad that I’ve lost weight, because now my red pants won’t fit for long. *sigh* And it took forever to find a good pair. And a lot of my favorite dresses will probably have to be tailored down. Ah well. Such is life!

      • Bethie

        *looks down and kicks dirt* *whispers* A hun’red and seven. Which is only 3lbs. away from blood giving weight! Although… it’d probably be good to weight more so I don’t risk passing out. πŸ˜›

        It IS weird!! But I’m proud of the both of us! All three of us, including your friend! Yaaay! Psst… tell her to find a local Panera Bread or St. Louis Bread Company. That’ll plump her up in no time. πŸ˜‰

    I of course love all your outfits. But the one with the red pants. I like it. I was never able to wear colored jeans or pants, but that is only cause I was afraid of it. I have friends who wear all different colors. I need color in my life, but I gotta start slowly to ease my mind into colors. :0) But very cute outfit. :0)

    • Mara

      Don’t be afraid of the colored pants! They’re a lot of fun, and not as hard to style as you might think. I’m actually more comfortable in the red pants than I am in regular jeans.
      Good luck easing colors into your life!

    • Mara

      Thank you! They’re not as scary as I thought they would be! Then again, I’m more comfortable in colorful pants than in regular jeans, so I might not be the one to ask. πŸ˜€

    • Mara

      Oh, I will. πŸ˜€ The last couple of work outfits have been just a tee shirt and jeans, though, because I haven’t been comfortable enough with the job to wear my usual outfits. πŸ™‚ And I have to wear tennis shoes if I don’t want my back to hurt.

  • Emily

    Haha, I felt truly adventurous when I mixed stripes and polka dots all into one outfit(two tanktops.. one stripes, and a coordinating colored polka dotted tanktop :D)… you’re slowly having an effect on me πŸ˜€
    My goal is to become nice and colorful this summer… truly, you inspire me πŸ˜€
    Love the pants, but that and the brown skirt outfit were my two favorites this week πŸ˜€ Oh… of course, make that three… the superhero costume was AMAZING πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    • Mara

      I love stripes and polka dots together!
      Yay! Colors are fun. πŸ˜€ And once you start wearing them, you can’t stop! Well… I can’t, anyway. hehe.

      Yeah, I think the Superhero costume was my favorite. πŸ˜€

  • Demy

    Hey hey! As I’ve already said, you ROCK pants! And now COLORED PANTS! I’m pretty sure I’d never pull them off, because I’m a chicken at heart, but you look really stunning! I love the way you styled them and the shoes are killeeeeeer! They look awesome with the red and green color combo! Oh and I love the earrings and the belt! Well, things that have a story, like the belt, are so precious and they do mean a lot πŸ™‚ Btw, I’m happy you’ve been losing weight, but hey girl, don’t overdo it, ok?? You’re always pretty!

    • Mara

      Hello, you!
      It’s funny, I feel more comfortable in colorful pants than I do in regular jeans. πŸ˜€ It’s just my personality, I think. Thank you, dear.
      I’m not trying to lose weight, I promise! That’s actually the last thing on my mind right now, but I’ve been really active lately, so… it was bound to happen, I guess. <3 Thank you.

    Woot! Red pants! =D I’ve got red pants too! Well, not anymore. They’re too small and I gave them to my little sister, along with my turquoise skinnys and my light mint green skinnys. I kinda miss my uber colorful pants. Anyway, I like all the outfits this weak! And I’m totally envious of your job. It sounds rockin’!
