All By Myself....

Taking pictures by yourself is HARD! My camera has a timer.  I have a tripod but I'm not sure where it is! I have a new work schedule and I go in every day from 12-5. Well, there's no one home at that time of day but me and the dog! So, some of my pictures are going to be less than stellar, but I tried!!

I'm not really digging this weather.  I'm a total summer person. I love hot weather! And I'm sad to see it going.  I just don't like to be cold. BUT I am happy about getting to wear my cooler weather clothes.  I've missed them!!

I'm sure you've noticed that we've become a trio, and officially added Leah to our authors list.  She's a great addition, isn't she?! I can't wait to see what she does for her 30 for 30.  I do not have the guts to do it. I'm fickle. I like changing my mind on a whim!!

Ok. You come here to see outfits! Here's my outfits so far this week! I actually had a photographer for the first one!

White Tee: Walmart
Black Pencil Skirt: Target
Black Flats: Gifted from Lise
Belt: Charlotte Russe
Brown Jacket: Thrifted, PS Too
Purple Tank: Rue 21
Pants: Dockers, Kohl's
Brown Bow Shoes: I can't remember!

 Black Tee: Walmart
Gray Pinstripe Pants: Thrifted, Goodwill
Gray Patent Shoes: Nine West

Ok, you are caught up on me this week!! Now let me go read your blogs and catch up on you!!

Oh, and because so many of you have emailed and asked...Yes. I have lost weight! Thank you for noticing!! LOL I've lost 12 lbs! If I can lose another 10, I'll be down to my pre-pregnancy weight. And it only took 12 years to take the weight off!! :) 


  1. I agree! It is really hard to take pictures of yourself! I have so much trouble. You did good though. The shirt and skirt in your first look, I would definitely wear. And I like the bright cami poking out in the second. Congrats on the weight loss! That is great.

  2. I think you did a great job! I have not mastered this skill yet. I love all three looks, esp the middle one with the cute cropped jacket and colorful tee. You look so happy and pretty!

  3. You look fantastic as usual! I love the black tee tucked into the grey pants with the skinny belt and patent heels... sigh. Perfection! I am so excited to get going on this thing. I will post some pics tomorrow. Today is your day! And the 30 for 30 is not as hard as you think. I'll come raid your closet and help you put one together!

  4. Great looks! I love how you tucked in your shirt in the last outfit. Looks good on you!

  5. Joy you look fantastic!!! I love that belt in the top pic, too.

  6. you are looking so elegant in all of these outfits
    congrats on the awesome weight loss
    tell me about taking your own pics
    i do it everyday
    my tripod and i are very close!!!

  7. I thought you looked especially slender! In the pic with the purple jacket you look model-thin and model-tall.

    I love all the outfits, but I'm partial to a good white T and a great black pencil skirt. Very simple and looks great with the cute shoes and jewelry.

  8. I had to laugh because I, too, have been learning (and struggling with) the art of self-photography. I did find some great tips over on Modly Chic (it's an old post, but Katy recently referenced and linked to it in a newer post). It was helpful!

    You look wonderful. So chic! I know I've told you before how much I love your hair, but I'll say it again. It's like the icing on the cake!
