Casual Bohemian

When I was a teenager, this was very much my signature look. However, my jeans were low rise bell bottoms. (Don't laugh!)

This beautiful embroidered linen and rayon top was sent to me by J.Jill. It is so much cooler than a knit top!

The jeans are slim ankle jeans from Chico's. The shoes are old by Anne Klein Sport via T.J.Maxx. The bracelet was a gift from my friend Lois.

I have been asked many times about what I eat to stay slim. This was our late lunch on this casual lazy day. This sandwich includes Rudis organic ancient grain spelt bread with some veganaise, sprinkled with garlic powder, organic lettuce, heirloom tomato, avocado slices, balsamic vinegar and a tiny drizzle of olive oil. The wine is Apothic Red.

 While the look I am showing you here today was one I wore in my youth, I was not this slim when I was sixteen. When I was a Junior in high school I weighed about twenty pounds more than I do today. My weight has never been consistent until about five years ago when I switched to a mostly vegan diet. I read the book "Eat To Live" by Dr Fuhrman which taught me what to eat and why. My weight has remained about the same since I lost more than forty pounds at that time. This is a life-long record!
