I wore new, smaller slacks today. It was great. When I first got them, they were very snug in the waist so I didn't wear them right away. But today they fit perfectly! Not too snug anywhere.
On my trip, my cousin and I went thrift shopping. I enjoy exploring other thrift stores when traveling and often bring home a souvenir that is affordable and fun to wear. My new slacks were a local thrift score but are an unusual color of blue--almost turquoise but more like flag blue. I had been shopping for a top to go with them for some time. I've bought a couple of tops and brought them home to check the color match and wound up taking both of them back--wrong color. In Houston I found a linen top that perfectly matches the new slacks! All ladies' clothes were on special for 1/2 price--I took a chance on bringing it home for $2.
So, I wore my new outfit today and helped serve at a party after worship service. Two different ladies came up and asked me if I have been losing weight! Hooray! I guess the outfit is a hit. More incentive to be more careful to track all my food and exercise regularly. Spark on!
