Have I been a total blog bum or what?  I've been trying to work with what I have instead of buying clothing.  I've put on weight since getting married and I refuse to buy anything a size up.  Ok, not really because I totally bought new black crop pants from Gap last week (seen below).  But other than that, I'm putting my foot down and contemplating working out.  ha!  When the weather gets a little nicer, I plan on taking Ruby to the Greenway to rollerblade since I can't take my bike without help.  I'm ready for spring just like everyone else, winters are so crippling.

I wore this today to Sunday Brunch:

Tops - Kohls
Skirt - J.Crew
Pumps- Jessica Simpson

And then changed into this to run a couple errands...

 *sorry for the blurriness*

Top - Kohls
Belt - J.Crew
Pants - Gap
Flats - Tory Burch Reva

I broke down and bought a pair of Revas as a gift to myself for my 2 year Trauma Survivor anniversary.  I wore them with tights last week which was much more comfortable than with a bare foot as pictured above.  The top of the shoe digs into my foot causing it to turn red and itch.  It's not a sizing issue because I bought my usual size, a 6.5, and there is a little wiggle room in the back.  Not quite what I expected for the price point but you live and learn.  I will probably not purchase Tory Burch flats again.  But I must say, I'm not crazy about flats in the first place because my limp is much more pronounced.  They are pretty to look at though!

I hope everyone is resting up today for the week ahead! :-)

When Ashley Met Sally...

... and then renamed her Ruby. 

 Boots- BR
Jeans - Gap
Cardi, tank & belt - J.Crew
Scarf - Nordstrom

Our new doghter, goldendoodle Ruby.

Please wish my husband patience as he will be home by himself tomorrow with a puppy.  I'm a little scared of what I'm going to come home to after work.
