blackframedglasses

With my reading glasses on … you don’t see me often with my glasses on … At this point I must apologise for the poor quality of images – I was just not cracking it and even Jarod was not able to capture a good image … some days the camera is just a challenge.

I was not in the mood for jeans and since I had a dentist appointment and needed to exchange Schatzies gift and do some grocery shopping, I opted for trousers instead of a dress or skirt.  These are a lovely light cotton and although I’ve had them since August, this is only the second time I’ve worn them.

The first time I wore them, I really felt rather uncomfortable and they seemed to sit really low on my backside and I felt as though I was exposing myself, and since then have put them on at least twice and then taken them off.  But today, to my surprise, they felt almost right.  As always they are about two sizes too big in my waist (its totally normal for me that when something fits my hips, its too big in the waist – I see all the pear shaped ladies nodding in agreement and sympathy) but were higher up over the behind.  Well, I can only attribute that to the reduction in size on my rear with my new eating plan, walks on the treadmill and Cassey Ho’s Blogilates.

I also decided to let you see how I look when I’m working at the PC and took the first photo with my reading glasses on, just to keep it real.

Count down to USA trip … 24 days to take off … countdown to bedtime = NOW.

    Perfect look – I LOVE black on black. It’s very slimming and I think it’s eye catching and a bit mysterious.

    That’s a great look, Wendy, I love black on black! Only once I wore glasses on the blog but in reality, I am blind as anything when it comes to computers and reading… cannot live with out my reading glasses and I urgently need new ones.

    Have a good weekend, although a sad weekend not only for your nation.
