OOTD: Quilted Leather Mini + Yellow Tweed Blazer + WW Update



Hi Darlings!

So WW (work it Wednesdays) has been a bit lagging due to so many changes and the holidays and so and and so an (insert more excuses here) lol but I do have an update…I DID finally start T25 and I love it! I could not handle the 45 intense work out with Insanity due to my bad knee so I had to stop doing it. With T25 I can actually get through the 25 minutes without my knee giving me a problem. It is intense and at the end of day 1 I thought I was going to pass out LOL but I got through it! and there is a modified version being done along with Shaun T so if you are not ready to do full speed you can follow along with the modified version.

Ill update you guys again next Wednesday and will share any changes I see. I also wanted tot mention that there is a meal plan that comes with the program but I never follow them. I just stick to a cleaner diet which I talk about in detail HERE and focus more on stain hydrated so I am currently drinking a gallon of water a day…that seems like a lot but I have a 24oz. bottle that I bought at Target and I just drink 5.5 of those a day and before I know it I have downed a gallon of water ;-)

The bare minimum of water you should be consuming on a REGULAR day is 8-10 glasses of water a day (64-80oz.) but when working out for weight loss you should double that, the main key to loosing weight is WATER. If you did not work out, ate pretty close to an all clean diet and drank a gallon of water a day you would loose weight just as fast as someone eating not so clean, working out 5 days a week and drinking the minimum amour of water required for your body to stay hydrated.

Remember that as part of the new videos for youtube where I will be answering your fashion questions I will also answer any fitness, workout, food questions you have. Just leave your questions in the comment section for me and I will pick a few for next weeks video.

Okay….Let's talk OOTD

  1. Too cute Ms. Mimi. I watched a video on how to make quilted fabric pieces for projects. I think I will try this but longer. I hate my legs.

    1. I hardly do ab workouts really doll, it is so much about what you eat when it comes to your abs. I talk about it under the fitness tab ;-)

    1. Give it a try doll and change up your workout. Also try this….do two back to back days of low carb meals (really do lots of protein and veggies and include a fatty source like avocado) then do a high carb day where you include a good carb with every meal (at least 4-5 meals a day) that will help restart your body. xoxo

    2. Mimi - Thank you for mentioning the two back to back days of low carb meals and explaining a little of what that looks like. I've heard research on this and just didn't quite know what to eat on those days. I love avocados! tks! :)

  7. Your legs are already fabulous looking, and you look good in yellow. I don't even like yellow and you've made me like it in this outfit.

  8. Lovely outfit! I love the new videos, the haul had me wanting to go out and buy me some gap jeans.

  9. You look fantastic (as always). Is there a way to tailor a mini-skirt so that it doesn't do that flip out thing on the bottom in the back? I've had to give up my minis because the back will just stick out and up and is too revealing. I've tried to put a slit into a skirt and though it doesn't stick out, it's still too revealing for me.

    1. Yeah if you make it yourself you can make the back longer to accommodate that "lift" that happens from your bum but if you buy them not much you can do unless it has a center back seam, you can peg it so that it goes in as opposed to out.

  10. You look AMAZING!!! Your makeup looks great.

  11. It's too cold here in Baltimore to go bare legged, but you do make me wish it wasn't. I love the sunniness of this outfit.

  12. Yay I'm so Happy your planning to do a quilting tutorial I was just thinking I wanted to give your quilted Jacket a try. Can you also include some pointers on how to quilt on something other then a bernina.

  13. That jacket is great! Helps that yellow is my favourite colour. ;P

  14. Fierce! Love everything about this outfit: the color combination, the varying texture between the jacket and skirt, those shoes and that necklace!

  15. I don't know if anyone has ever asked this before but does your husband photograph you for your blog? Because the look in your eyes sometimes suggests this might be so. Or I could be totally wrong LOL. Either way, love this!
