The Best Little Black Dress.

I don’t say this very often (at least I try not to, I love to shop but hate saying that you “need” things) but GO BUY THIS DRESS. It is… the perfect little black dress, at a great price. Besides being super cute, it also checks all of my boxes for what to wear when I’m not feeling my hottest. 😉 Sleeves, a tie-waist to cover up a big lunch or a core that needs strengthening. It comes in bright red and olive green as well and I’m tempted to get all three colors – it’s that good. I typically size up in Topshop (though their sizing is all over the place) so I got an 8 in this one. It’s a little loose but I’m into that, since it is a bit short.

Also it’s been a while since I’ve worn a dress in these parts (brr) so forgive me if I am being repetitive but I SWEAR by Express Tights. They last forever, hold up in the wash, and are most importantly… super opaque. I like them better than Wolford and they are a fraction of the price.

How is your week going? I’m finally back in a good groove with work but I constantly feel like I don’t even know what day it is – such a space cadet! That tends to happen to me on weeks where I work from home and don’t leave my apartment very much… ha! My own week has been a (rather nice!) mix of boring activities… basically work and working out but I am definitely not complaining, I really, really love being in a routine. On Wednesday I went to Kiki’s for Greek food with a few girlfriends (it is SO GOOD), and last night I took an Uplift Class with New Balance. More on that in tomorrow’s wellness check-in (are you ready?) Tonight I have a brand event and then I’m meeting up with a girlfriend to talk… podcast ideas! We are trying to be really thoughtful about this and I think we’ve finally got a good idea.

    This is totally the type of dress that I would pass in a store and not think about. However, it looks so incredible on!!

    Thanks for the rec on Express tights…I’ve destroyed my HUE pairs I got at the beginning of December already and have been on the hunt for a pair that actually holds up to winter wear and tear!
