Double Dots

{Boots: DSW -- Tights: H&M -- Dress: Forever 21 -- Top: Urban Outfitters -- Cardigan: Thrifted}







I was feeling especially dotty today and decided to put on two dot patterns! Is that even considered pattern mixing? Not sure, but I love how it turned out. Felt very spring and happy, and guess what, the weather feels spring and happy too! Yesterday we had snow flurries all day, but today it was up to mid 50s and tomorrow and thursday possibly even 70's! 

As it turns out exercise alone is not enough to help my body loose some weight, I've actually gained a pound since running! Probably from all those cookies I eat after dinner time, that's when I am at my weakest. Anyone else seem to become more and more weak as the day carries on? It's just so hard to resist all the yummy treats in our pantry. As of right now though I'm doing well, eating unsalted nuts and greek yogurt! You may be thinking I don't really need to loose weight, but that's not really my goal to be honest. I want to be healthy. Food alters our feelings and we don't even notice it, I hate that. You know that feeling after pounding down a big mac? Yeah I don't want to feel that ever again. I just want to be happy. 

Life seems busy lately, but I'm content with that. The busier I am the faster time goes. The faster time goes the closer I get to spring break. The closer I get to spring break the sooner I will see my family, and I absolutely cannot wait for that! 

Hope you all have a good night!

Oh dear I certainly hope you are just trying to be healthy because you are just a little thing as it is! I really do wish you luck--I am really bad with sweets. And soda. I really love your dress. It is adorable!

You're right, It's so much better to look at things as being healthy rather than losing weight, a much better mindset :) And by the way, Frannie's right you are pretty little and I think you're ADORABLE :) Looove that dress.

Aw, such a cutie. Who doesn't love polkadots! I agree with Frannie and hope that you are being healthy. You've probably gained a pound since running because muscle weighs more than fat does. So you've been burning fat and gaining muscle, that's great! Weight is just a number anyway. Hope you're having a great week so far.
XOXO

I love the double dots! You look so feminine and pretty in that dress - especially the close up shots :)!

I need to get the healthy mindset back into my head again. We actually rid our cabinets of all unhealthy food a while back but the thing is.. we drive to go buy some hahaha. Maybe once Josh and I move to our home I can actually cook! ;)

Fabulous dress, looks so fresh!

It,s difficult not to eat to much in the evening, I always find myself wandering around the kitchen but then I ask: "Vera, are you hungry? I mean, are you really hungry? No? Go and do some homework at least." :)

I love how girly and spring the top is and how dark and gloomy the bottom is. Perfect offset.

I want to be healthy too! It's way harder than it should be. I wish you all the luck.

way to go for realizing the importance of just being healthy, after giving up gluten & all sugars i've realized realized how food makes me feel & is SO important.. although sadly i've gained some weight since no sugar but def from other things haha. and.. you look adorable in that dress & fun cardi!
