Black and White and Pink

And so continuing the pink trend, I broke out my new pink Coach Factory bag for a little dinner date with Jeff and his parents out in Oak Park over the weekend.  We went to Mancini's, which is actually in the 36 Hours book Jeff got me a couple of weeks ago.  I had an asian salmon salad, and it may have been the best salmon salad I've ever had.  Seriously.  It was so good, I decided I could handle eating healthy again and hopped back on Lose It this week.  Last spring I lost 11 pounds using Lose It, but since I added a few back over the holidays it seemed like as good a time as any to get back into the swing of things.  Personally, I think it worked for me because I could still eat whatever I wanted, I just had to exercise if I wanted to eat ice cream and if I was going to binge out on snacks they had to be healthy to fit into my calorie plan.

Blouse - Loft / Leggings - JCrew Factory / Boots - Enzo Angiolini (old, similar) / Bag - Coach Factory (similar) / Bracelet - Michael Kors / Necklace - Stella & Dot

Oh and see my nails?  The mani I got this weekend was Essie "Find Me an Oasis" and I am loving it, it's a really pretty light blue.  I just may have to buy a bottle for myself ;)

Have a very happy almost Friday!
