One way around the double denim dilemma…swap out one of the blue denim pieces for something colorful!
A colored denim jacket outfit with a crochet top
I almost didn’t post this outfit. Not because I don’t love it (I do!) but because some of the pieces are sold out, or almost sold out. I ordered this colored denim jacket from Talbot’s the minute it went on sale, but by the time I received it, this “Cantaloupe” color was mostly gone. (The red color is still available in most Misses sizes.) More colorful denim jackets:
That crochet top from Everlane also went in a heartbeat. It’s still available in a lemon yellow/off white stripe. I really like the bit of texture it adds to the outfit, without being too bulky or heavy. (Jeans, jewelry & sandals are still available. Previously wore the jeans HERE.) Here are a few more crochet tops:
Mixing blue and white, black, gray, or colored denim with blue is one way to sidestep the Canadian tuxedo look, if that’s not your thing. If it is, I like to mis-match blue denim pieces, so it looks less deliberate.
A refreshing summer mocktail
I totally stole this from my friend Karen, but I know she’ll forgive me. I’m always on the lookout for mocktails that satisfy that “cocktail hour” urge, and this one definitely does. It also has some beneficial probiotic effects. Super easy!
- 1 can Spindrift grapefruit sparking water
- 1-2 TBSP raw apple cider vinegar
- squeeze of lime or lemon wedge
- add some mint because it’s pretty
Serve over ice. C’est tout!
Two years ago, Karen encouraged me to sign up (again) for Faster Way to Fat Loss. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I’m leaner and stronger than I’ve ever been, and have more energy. My recent physical confirmed good “numbers” with blood pressure, heart rate, and blood test results. My weight is stable without constant monitoring or intervention, and I’ve incorporated the program into my life.
Karen is starting a new client round TODAY, so if you’ve been thinking about taking charge of your health and fitness, it’s a great time to take that first step. Karen is the BEST coach, and is so inspirational and invested in the success of everyone in her groups. There are no pre-packaged foods to buy, or gym memberships required. It takes a bit of focus at first, but after a while it becomes second nature.
