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! :-)

  1. Ashley- my revas were really uncomfortable at first too but they do stretch and give a bit to become more comfortable. The medallion bothered me when I first got them but like I said, they feel better now. Wear them with some socks around your house to break them in.

    I don't know if you ever mentioned or if you even want to, but maybe sometime you can share your survivor story? It seems that it really inspires you each day :)

  2. Oh my gosh I have gained weight too! My mom made me feel better and said thats just what happens when you get married! haha I love your shoes! I have been debating buying a pair forever! They may hurt, but they look good!! :)

  3. Love the Jcrew skirt - it looks awesome on you!

  4. You should have put a caveat about how beautiful our new TB wallets are though!!

  5. Spiffy- I will try with the socks. It's strange as the first few times I wore them they were decently comfortable.

    Katie- whats with the post-marriage weight gain? Ugh.

    Ella- Thank you so much! :)

  6. hi!! i love your blog :) i just discovered it and i think you've got the cutest style! hehe

    i have a few pairs of tory's and i promise you they feel LOADS better after a few wears.. but i'm totally with you the first time i wore them i was SO mad.. because they cut into my feet and it was all sore and swollen for a few days after!! ugh

    i'm a new follower would love for you to visit and follow me too!
