Happy Friday, gals! Hahaha! I have to laugh because yesterday I was talking with my daughter on the phone and asked if she was going to church tomorrow. That’s how confused I get when you throw a holiday into the middle of the week! But indeed it’s Friday, so I thought the beginning of the weekend called for a simple cargo pants combo.
There’s just something about khaki and red. Oh, I know! It’s the Target uniform! Ha! Maybe that’s why I like it… After all, I go there a lot! Well, don’t wear this combo to Target then. But it’s classy and easy for anywhere else!
I think the element that brings a little class to this “Target uniform” duo is the splash of leopard print. And, coincidentally, my leopard print belt is from…you guessed it…Target! Okay, I’m totally tickled now. Let’s forget Target.
Well, first I need to tell you that my red t-shirt, which is really not quite this bright, is also from Target. It’s the same shirt as my favorite white, black, navy and gold tees. But the red is out of stock in all sizes. (They have plenty in other colors.) So I found this great two-for deal on Amazon. These t-shirts have gotten great reviews and you can get so many different combinations of colors in your two-pack.
These high waist cargo pants in “flax” are the same as my blue ones in this post. I love the versatility and comfort of both pairs of pants. And I think they’ll get a lot of wear through the fall, too. Can’t you see either pair with a cozy sweatshirt or a simple tee and jacket?
The cargo pants have plenty of stretch in them for comfort, but they don’t stretch out on me as I wear them. I’m wearing a size 8, so I’d say they are true to size.
For this easy cargo pants combo, I kept my jewelry simple but vibrant. I’m wearing this gold Kendra Scott Olive necklace (which has been marked down 50%), my simple gold hoops and a gold bangle. But I recently ordered this bangle, and it would work well with this outfit, too. My silver ring, which I wear all the time, is this one by James Avery.
I could have easily worn my Ecco Yucatan sandals or my saddle leather slides with this sporty cargo pants combo. But I find myself opting for these white leather Keds more often than I thought I would. With my no-show socks underneath, they are so very comfortable. And I’ve really had no trouble keeping these Keds white.
I carry my English saddle leather tote almost every day. And it has been super handy on the airplane trips I’ve made recently. When traveling I generally tuck my small rose studded camera bag inside it so that I have a smaller shoulder bag to use as well.
Really, on cool evenings or mornings, when I go out to see a movie or spend a day shopping, this is the kind of outfit you’ll see me in.

FASTer Way to Fat Loss Begins Monday
I love sharing my experience with the FASTer Way to Fat Loss with my readers because this program has proven to be a sustainable, workable lifestyle shift for me. I’ve lost and kept off 20 pounds for over a year now using the precepts in the FWTFL. If you need to lose a lot of weight or a few pounds, if you need to go the extra mile or get off the couch, if you’d like to tone up or get well, you are worth the cost and the effort.
You can learn more about my experience with the FWTFL in this post. Or you can check out their website and register for this effective program here. Finally, if you’ve already finished a round or are in the intro program, you can sign up for the monthly FWTFL membership program here.
PLUS I just learned that Amanda Tress, the FWTFL founder, is giving new registrants an amazing STARTER KIT filled with a FASTer Way t-shirt, her new book and a quality exercise band. I’m SO JEALOUS! This is a great time to register.
Blessed for My Day
I used to be afraid of the dark. I slept with a night light until just about ten years ago. But I’m not scared of things going bump in the night anymore. I do, however, grow a little anxious if I awaken in the wee hours of the night. My thoughts tend to lead me down dark corridors during those hours. I imagine the worst, fear the unknown, fret over things undone and rack up long lists of things I need to do the next day but worry that I’ll never accomplish. Can you relate?
I’ve learned to still my anxious heart during these fretful times by reminding myself that my thoughts are not rational. Convinced that I will surely see things differently in the light of the day, I hand my concerns over to God in prayer and trust that He is thinking much more clearly than I am at that time of night. Ha! Of course, He is. Since I began this practice, those dark thoughts do not hold me captive nearly as long as they used to.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you. ~ Psalm 139:11-12
