Summer Hen Day

One of our first trips "back home" was to attend a charity dinner in Dallas. I took the opportunity to call up my friends and see if they missed brunching with me, and they DID! So we went to brunch. My husband said my French hen dress was very appropriate for me to go hang out with my girls and cluck away like little hens.  I know in some areas they call them "Hen Nights" but since ours was over brunch, I called it a Hen Day and I was happy I found the perfect dress.
Dress: LOFT (similar); Earrings: Blue Nile (old)
Necklace: c/o Julie Vos 
Bracelets: Ralph Lauren & Fossil (similar); Handbag: Sam Edelman (steal/splurge)
Wedge Sandals: Prada (current)
This is right around the time I meant to take up blogging again. I originally wanted to come back after the summer, but these photos are what prompted me to see my doctor. I usually can wear clothes to disguise or camouflage my "full-figure" but even though this dress technically "fit" I couldn't believe how much bigger I looked than the image I have of me in my head. No matter how much I restrict my calorie intake or kill myself exercising, I can't seem to lose any weight.  Coupled with a couple other concerns, my doctor and I started looking at the possibility of a thyroid disorder. It has been such a stressful situation. I still haven't lost any weight, but I do feel like my clothes are finally starting to fit better and I feel like I have more energy now that we have implemented some changes.
