GREY COAT, PRINT PANTS, PATENT SHOES

Hello dear friends, hope you are keeping well.

GREY COAT, PRINT PANTS, PATENT SHOES

It is a known fact that that I love bright strong colours and wear them quite often, however today I went the other way and dressed myself from head to toe in a mix of black and grey colours, with the eye catching vermilion colour wall behind me is the only evidence to the contrary.

I am wearing a coat that was a hand-me down from my older daughter, Michelle, who bought it during her European holidays few years ago from Cos well before this popular brand landed on our shores.  She really liked it then but has grown bored of it so she offered it to me and I gladly accepted.  I was thinking of buying a new coat anyway so in a sense she did me a favour saving my time and moneyπŸ‘.  The coat was in perfect condition ,  Michelle even dry-cleaned it before handing it to its new owner.

I am wearing he pants from Maison Scotch .  They have been in my closet for quite some time and reason that you didn’t see me wearing them lately was because in the last year or two I gained some weight and, despite my strong dedication to fitness, wasn’t able to shake it off.  It was during the lock-down, believe or not, that I proposed to my husband to try and lose some weights.

Before COVID we used quite often to go for lunch or dinner and indulge ourselves in wines, desserts, cheeses, burgers with chips, etc – all these yummy foods that are responsible for extra kilos.  Now with the restaurants closed, we saw it as an opportunity to eat less and not drink at all.  And I must say, it wasn’t that hard.  We can see the result and I feel better, lighter and happier πŸ™‹.

Every time I mention to someone that we haven’t touched wine or eaten anything unhealthy in the last couple of months, I get similar reactions from people like some call us mad, some said that they feel pity for us and only a handful of my closest friends and family who noticed the difference understood that for me that being able to get my body back is more satisfying than a piece of cake or a glass of wine. 

Anyway, it is our anniversary coming up a couple of weeks so we will celebrate it by rewarding ourselves by eating and drinking with gusto πŸ˜‹

    1. I love walking too but I had to revert to really drastic measures to combat the weight gain. Switching between the brights and neutrals provides you with a nic balance of different looks

  8. How nice of your daughter to give you the coat, it's a nice topper with those fun printed pants!

    Well done on sticking to your goals too! I could never give up cake or chocolate, I like a little indulgence at the end of the day, haha!

    Hope your week is going well :) It's turned into a rainy one here!

    1. I thought so too but now, after I lost a few kilos, staying lighter became a higher priority.
      I guess everyone does what is best for them and that's how it should be. Have a nice weekend
