The reason I’ve been so very fond of wearing dresses has been because of my fitness. They simply have been the most comfortable thing to wear. However, I’ve been working out with the Fustra method for a few months now (will write a more detailed post about it sometime soon!), and it has resulted in lost inches around my waist. Now skirts and jeans fit me better, and I am finally getting a lot of wear out of my tops I haven’t been able to wear as much in the past.

First is my Campbell & Kate classic white shirt that has been great in smartening up my sneaker looks. I’ve had some knee issues with the workout regime so there are days when I need to wear flats, and it’s been too chilly for ballerinas.

I’ve also started wearing white now that it’s spring time and I have wanted to lighten up my looks so this easy-to-wear white knit peplum top has also been a favorite. (The scarf had to be re tied after I saw how it looked on this photo but I did wear it together with this combo.)

All in all I am now very pleased that during my huge wardrobe overhaul I kept some of my nicer tops and shirts despite their failing the rule “if you haven’t worn this in the past two months, it’s gone”.
