I am sure that you have noticed that styles have been recycled since around the 60's. Various aspects of those time periods have moved in and out of the fashion world, and this year is no different.
We are seeing colors from the 70's, styles from the 80's and 90's, and pattern mixing that seemingly shouldn't go together.
Take a look at this blazer. The colors are so 70's, but the shape is so 90's. Take a look at the shoulder pads. The look is very 1990's!

The pleated skirt has been making a come back, coming back out of the shadows. It's a fun piece to pair with pumps or with athletic shoes. You can pair it with a tee or a silk top. It's way more versatile than a lot of other pieces. However, be sure that it's lined for modesty.

More Fall fashion in future posts. I love all of the colors that are so popular. It's an exciting time.

Day 7 on Keto177 is a day where I have a mix of a little bit of Keto Flu and some dizziness. Yesterday evening, I felt so hungry, like SO hungry. I guess I need to increase my fat intake so that I am better satiated. I am down 4 pounds. It's nice to be slowly getting out of the Keto Flu and back to my normal hyper task oriented self.

MY JOURNEY TO SELF LOVE:
...continued from last post...
My spouse had gone to work at a project site. His family was at our house and didn't speak and English. I had packed a few things in boxes and had put them up on top shelves of the closet. In the process, I found my spouse's wedding ring on a shelf and it was dusty. He had not worn it in a long time.
That morning, while he was gone, I felt an urgency to take my precious infant and "the hell out of dodge".
Getting together all that I was working on at work, I put it in a box and left it near the front door. I called a friend from work and let her know where it was so that they could take it. I didn't give many details because I didn't know what was going to happen. I just had a gut feeling that I needed to give the office everything that I had been working on.
I packed enough stuff for a weekend trip, went to the bank and withdrew all of the money I could get, and called my mom. With her permission, I drove to Utah with my few month old infant.
On the way, I called my spouse to say I was leaving to visit my mother. He didn't really say much about it. At the time, it was just for the weekend.
However, my mother knew that I needed to stay. She told me "you know, you don't have to go back". I just cried and cried. The relief of my mother saying that was what I needed. What an angel! She had only been married for a short time to her new husband, still had other kids at home, and now was inviting a daughter with her infant to stay.
What happened as this process unfolded was miraculous and changed who I was forever. The value I put on myself would change from feeling the need to end my life, to knowing that I deserved someone who would treat me with kindness and respect.
