The Red Blouse

This is the same blouse I have in orange and blue.
I can't believe Tesco has managed to create such an array of must-have colours for the budget range of blouses.
I was saving this to wear on Christmas Day with my black pencil skirt.
But oh dear, the skirt is a tad too tight.
Instead I opted for a more forgiving flared skirt and will get back to Weight Watchers in the New Year.
Christmas is far too enjoyable to be worrying about limiting your treats.
Still, I am making the effort as I was at the gym before 9am today.
Do you struggle to stave off the pounds over Christmas or are you one of the lucky ones?

I wore:
Boots - Clarks
Skirt - Marks & Spencer
Blouse - Tesco


  1. That is one pretty blouse - and I AM NOT one of the lucky ones.
    In fact I started over eating right around Thanksgiving and for the last couple of weeks I have been making an effort to do more salads - I want to think its working but I have not gotten on that scale yet. I am concerned it will weigh against me - and like you I really don't want to make to much of a fuss about it - at least for now.

  2. Pretty blouse, no wonder you need it in every color.

    Me? I have to work on the pounds every day, not just during the holidays. It has been a little easier since I started walking 2 miles a day.


  3. it's so easy to over indulge during the holidays, but how can you not?
    Hope you succeed with your weight goals in 2012!

  4. That is a fabulous top! I would probably buy it in all colors too!

  5. Beautiful colours of blouses. I'm so glad its not just me that needs to get back on the diet. Mind you I don't know why you should have too!
