It rained today so I wasn't going to go out of the house at all and take photos unless it stopped. By 3pm it stopped so pieced together this outfit and headed out with my Canon t3i to see if I could get some in before the night fell. It was still pretty cloudy out so I had to crank up the ISO to 6000... it's probably why my sort of burgundy hair looks kind of red. Nothing exciting to report about this outfit, the crocheted knit topper came from Macy's maybe 5yrs ago... the brown top was from bought probably around the same time and the skirt.... well I collect maxi skirts so I have probably two dozen of them!

I'm so glad that I didn't give this little patchwork set to goodwill! Ladies.... you know how we are, if it goes out of style and you think you're never going to wear it again... think again! I've had this set for 15yrs, they're by a company called Miu Miu. I bought it at a little boutique in New York when I was on a layover... I used to be a flight attendant for 20yrs but i'm retired now.

I don't wear jeans that much but when I do it's a pair from my favorite brand PZI Jeans. I have jeans from this brand dating back to 2007. Before I retired I was introduced to this brand by another Flight Attendant that had curves like mine. We could only wear black jeans through the airports and they couldn't be low rise or hip huggers... yep we had a dress code. This really limited our selections because back then everything was low rise and that didn't suit the figures of the more curvier girls like me. This brand specializes in jeans that flatter curvier women without showing that top butt fat...you know what i'm talking about!

I put together three different outfits with this cute jumpsuit that I found from Mystylemode, a trendy online boutique that I discovered. Their prices are very reasonable for the type of fabrics they carry and this trendy little jumpsuit cost $41.00, I ordered mine in a size medium because i'm 5'7"and I weigh 135 in case you're wondering!

I've had this tropical strapless halter top for quite sometime. I purchased it from JC Penny's and never worn it. I'm top heavy so I have to be very careful not to over accentuate in that area and halter tops have a tendency of doing just that. The skirt I've had for awhile also, I think I have about 5 black maxi skirts that I rotate through and I really like this one because it has a bit of a flair at the bottom.

I was searching for sheer maxi dresses on the internet because I wanted another option to pair with leggings instead of always wearing longer blouses or sweaters. While searching, I was not loving the prices of some of the really cute ones..... so I went to my trusted Amazon site and searched for sheer maxi dresses and so many cute ones popped up I could hardly choose. I bought three from different sellers all in a size large. These were sellers from China and we all know clothes from China automatically run small so you have to go up two or three sizes. I wear a small or size 4 to 6 so I ordered a large and it fits perfectly. There's elastic in the waist and lots of room for jeans or heavier leggings.

Many of us have already been to a Blogging Conference during our time as a Blogger and i'm no exception. This year the BlogHer conference was held in Los Angeles, my home town so I knew I had to attend. This was my first conference and as expected, it was a blast! I had such a good time and enjoyed meeting and networking with so many people.

90 Degrees by Reflex that I purchased on Amazon for $19.99 but I like them and that's all that matters! I'm on a mission to get all the colors that I like because the quality of these legging are so nice and they come all the way up to my navel which I love. My hat was also purchased on Amazon here, it comes in 17 different colors for $10.50/ea.

I follow a lot (an extremely unhealthy amount) of fitness people on Instagram and a lot of them are quite younger than myself. I love everything about them from their toned abs right down to the food pics they post... its just sheer motivation for me if nothing else. But lately I've become obsessed with all the new fitness wear or active wear that these young ladies seem to be wearing.... I mean i'm crushing really hard because they look really good and I'm sure they feel really good wearing it.

Every girl needs a great pair of leggings that speak volumes, hugs every curve and turns heads without even trying. That's exactly what these High-Waisted Yoga Pants from Missfit Activewear did when I wore them to the gym. I knew I was looking cute and when i'm feeling cute i'm definitely feeling more confident and I lift heavier and work harder... which is my ultimate goals.

Gym life is quickly becoming that #gymlife hashtag that I see many bodybuilders that I follow on Instagram using on their post. It's because everything about that person evolves around their #gymlife. My wardrobe is 75% fitness wear and 25% other. My fitness wear is very fashionable and it's what I wear daily (Monday - Friday) because I spend 2hrs in the gym everyday. I can go run all kinds of errands.... grocery shopping.... clothes shopping.., makeup shopping, etc. in my #gymlife clothes and not even miss a beat.

I promised myself that in 2016 I would feature more fashion on my Blog.... however I will admit that am not fashion forward! I probably own more black leggings than the average woman my age simply because I wear them everyday.. and I mean everyday. I have all kinds, expensive, cheap, elastic waists, zipper waist, stirrups, unitards and capri's. I also have a bunch of leggings in other colors as well and in a lot of bright colors... pink, blue, turquoise, yellow, mauve, olive, navy green... you name it I probably have that color and some dating back to the late 90's.... you'll see!

I have quite a bit of floral skirts both long and short because I absolutely love clothes with flowers on them. This skirt is actually quite old, it's a size 4 and I haven't been able to fit in it until now. I'm still on my 30 day sugar detox program and I have 9 more days to go. I'm extremely happy with the weight that I lost so far and i'm able to wear some things that I haven't been able to wear in quite some time. Although i'm not at my goal weight, my entire eating habits has changed. I'm very happy to say that this journey has become a lifestyle change that i'm happily embracing and will forever continue.

I was inspired to highlight my resort wear collection for the fabulous, confident and sexy over 50 gal who's not afraid to show the world her curves. I've had most of these swimwear sets for quite sometime and I really enjoy adding new pieces to my collection each year.

website until I saw one go on sale... the sale price tag was $89 and that was more in line with my price range.... so of course I bought it! I bought a size small in both pieces, the fabric is very stretchable and I wanted them to fit my small waist.

I was particularly searching for a pair of cats when these caught my eye while shopping at Macy's. If you haven't seen their new displays for sunglasses, it'll definitely make you stop and take a second glance. They now carry all the top name brands, the only ones I didn't see were Chanel.

Shopping with friends and having lunch is something I should do more often but the problem is most of my good friends are flight attendants and live out of town.... that comes with the territory of being a flight attendant I guess. So when someone calls you and says "I have a 24hr layover in LA and I want to do lunch and shopping" you drop everything to have a wonderful outing and catch up on the life you once had. I retired from my 20yr flight attendant career 5yrs ago so I don't travel as much anymore. I purchased a lot of goodies that I will certainly do a video haul along with photos here on the Blog so stay tuned for that.
