No sugar, All spice




Leather skirt - Suzy Shier (last seen here)
Top - Vintage (tag says Lady Anne)
Boots - Gojane.com
Necklace - My sisters :)

Some of this may look familiar from yesterdays post.  That would be because all I changed was the top!  I loved the skirt, tights and boots combo from yesterday so much that I couldn't resist wearing it again tonight for my friends birthday night out.  This is something that happens to me quite often.  I'll rediscover a shirt or a look that I love, find different ways to style it and wear it for a few days in a row!

Also, the boyfriend and I are almost a week into our month long sugar detox challenge.  We tried it several months ago for 1 week and we both felt like it accomplished nothing so, we amped it up to a month.  The failed attempted at the last detox also probably had something to do with the fact that it isn't a true detox.  A true sugar detox requires some serious dedication and control.  We are mainly cutting out all the processed sugars that are in things like cookies and chocolate bars, you know, all the super delicious stuff.  Natural sugars, like fruit, are allowed.  And we are also still eating carbohydrates, like bread, in moderate amounts.  Even with all the exceptions, it is still SO hard.  We are both SO addicted to chocolate and anything sweet (thanks a lot, Holidays).  Which is the reason we started this detox in the first place.  Hopefully by the end of the month we will be craving less sugar and will be reaching for the veggies and fresh ingredients instead! I'll keep you posted on whether we end up ripping each others heads off or not...


XO, Andrea

  1. it's so great how an outfit can look so different just by changing one item of clothing... I really love this look, you look amazing :)
    p.s. I have yet to find my 5 favorite bloggers to give an award to.. (I don't have that many, at least not the ones with less than 200f) I wouldn't want you to think I forgot! :)

    can't wait for your next post! :)

  2. That is a great outfit! I do the same thing... I'll find a skirt/tights/boots combo that's flattering on me then I switch up the top portion.

    I did a sugar detox too! So I can agree it is veryyyy hard (esp when I love candy more than regular foods lol). I am actually gonna give up sweets for Lent which is coming up soon. Keep us updated on your de-sugar-izing process!

    Sugar detox is hard, I've done it before and the headaches from the withdrawal were painful. Goodluck :)

  15. Sometimes a look just really looks and feels right, so go with it! I call that my uniform, like last weekend I think I wore 3 different striped long sleeve tees and three different jeans. But it works! Maybe I should get a leather skirt...

  27. Oh I am dying to hear the details about your month long sugar detox! My hubby and I are cookie monsters. It's so hard to go without cookies or brownies in our house! We have tried it once and failed and failed the very next night when our friends invited us over and had delicious desserts everywhere! ... oh an cute outfit!

  32. Its funny...I swear you don't eat too bad and then you decide...ok, I'm going to do a detox, or i'm going to stop eating this or that....and its like those foods call to you even more than when you didn't care!! kudos to you though! I've been trying to eat better and maybe just need to discipline myself better! thanks for the motivation. cute outfit too!
