Why, oh why, do I do this every winter?
Those snacks and treats that I would NEVER pay any attention to, much less have a relationship with in the summer keep finding their way into my life and into my mouth this time of year. French fries, donuts, and yes, even large quantities of cheese puffs seem harmless to me when it’s cold and dreary outside.
Until one day, my little “I Can Eat Anything I Want” fantasy turns into a “Getting Dressed in the Morning” nightmare. As one outfit after another is rejected and thrown on the floor and the pile becomes bigger and bigger, I wonder who’s body has taken me hostage. Each outfit is abandoned as it literally stretches the limits of appropriate work wear and my options become very limited.
That’s when I reach for those boxy shirts and sweaters.
Although they may be comfortable and hide a multitude of sins, let’s face it, for some of us– they do nothing for our well fed figures. But if you combine two boxy shirts you can create an entirely new look. By adding a little elastic to the waistline, you can create a shirt/sweater combo that is both comfortable and has a more flattering silhouette.
So set down that bag of cheese puffs and wear off a few calories by clicking here to see the entire tutorial:🙂
