Hey guys, this is a bit of different post from me. I recently lost one dress size (went from a 10 to a 8) so I'm super psyched! I've always eaten pretty healthy but for the last few months I've been working out more regularly and it's nice to see that it's paid off. I found that the dance inspired exercises work much better for me as I love dancing. I tend to slack off on regular weight and cardio routines but anything dance related gets me going.

Now, I know I will never really be a thin girl. At 28, I've come in terms with my wider hips and my boobs (lol!) so I'm comfortable in my skin. But I did want to lose those few pounds and accomplishing that makes me excited. Now only if I could get a rock hard abs, hehe! Here's the outfit of the day for the occasion:

blue

Dress is by Calvin Klein, jacket by Tristan and America, tights by H&M and booties by Nine West.

And here's a simple look I did today featuring Rebel l/s:

Eyes
Painterly p/p - base
Inglot AMC Shine #461 - inner lid

    Congrats on the weight loss! That must be exciting, especially since you did it a way that you enjoy and you didn't kill yourself over it.

    I love the dress and how you paired it with everything, and your hair! The look is beautiful as well :)
