Here I am getting my stripes on! This is what I wore on Friday, on my day off from work. Also the Husband had a day off from work so I got an Instagram Husband for the day. It was great!! Just 10 to 15 minutes of his time to drive me to the woods and take some photos.

Do you have a Instagram Husband/Boyfriend/Partner Or Friend? Or do you have to try and take your own photos? I need inspiration as I need to up my Instagram game as I am being left behind!! Big time!

Only too me all these years to realise!! Cough, Cough you can follow me here if you like 😉 Claire Justine Oxox.

Strippy Jumpsuit And Avoiding The Camera:

I have been avoiding the camera over the last few months as I know I have gain weight and honestly am starting to feel old. I can not believe how quickly the years go by and if you blink you really do miss them.

I still think of me as younger until I get up in pain or try to pop on my favourite dresses and they have shrunk! Looking in the mirror sometimes really does make me jump, ha!

More Exercise Planned:

I know I am not getting any younger though so I need to start taking more care of myself and what exercise I do and food I put in my body. Also here I am doing what I love best, talking about outfit and sharing the clothes I love.

Believe it or not this is what my blog was set out to be about 9 years ago but it got a bit sidetracked along the way. Food, yummy food may have taken it over for a while now.

Last week I embraced that I was not happy about a few things and I feel in a much better place by changing things up now and getting things off my chest.

I am also loving trying to get myself fit again and this week I need to work on my diet. Having a big meal out with my Husband, Son and his girlfriend wasn’t a perfect start but it was a good food bing before my diet starts today.

Something still need to be addresses though. Little things that niggle away at me. Things I need to Work out in my mind.

No Pain No Pain:

I have just recovered from the effects of my first spinning class in a long long time on Friday morning. This must mean I am ready to go again. Eek. No pain no gain.

Have a great bank Holiday Monday everyone, I will think of you enjoying yourselfs whiles I am at work!! Only 5 hours though so not out for too long.

    Nice stripes Claire and cute bag! I shouldn’t beat yourself up too much about Instagram or not feeling good about yourself. We all feel like that from time to time! Your blog is hugely successful and your photography is great. A lot of brands are moving away from Instagram (Lush for eg) and it’s discredited with so many “influencers” having bought their following. I do it because I enjoy the community of women, but it doesn’t grow my traffic.

      Thanks Gail. I do get down sometime but I do love blogging 🙂

    It’s funny how some days we feel older just because of our appearance. Yet our minds are still young, and I feel like we can trick it by being a little rebellious with our clothing choices at times.
    Like this jumpsuit…it’s so modern and fresh!! I’m seeing them everywhere and even though I have 2, I want more!!
    And I especially love the pop of red with your purse. It seems fresh!!

    I love those stripes; it looks so comfy too. I would gladly follow you… but I’m not on Instagram. I keep thinking about it but ultimately decide it’s just too much work to figure out one more social media thing. LOL.
