Happy Monday everyone!  I survived the everything-that-could-go-wrong-would-go-wrong Friday, just by a hair! So you know what’s called for after a weekend of comfort-eating ice cream and chocolate balls?  A dress with BUILT IN SHAPEWEAR!!!  Genius, right?  This number from White House Black Market’s Instantly Slimming Collection has just that AND the perfect mix of stripes in all directions.  A winning combo that makes it completely flattering.  Because it’s so nice to not have to suck it in, right?  Now my plan for this week- a few more vegetables, a few less spoonfuls of ice cream.  Let’s see how this goes!  Spoiler alert: probably not that well because I’m tackling that crepe recipe that has me stumped and ice cream goes reeaaalllly well with homemade nutella and banana stuffed crepes.  Thank god for shapewear!  Shop the outfit below (also available in Petite!)  xx- Sarah

SHOP THIS OUTFIT: dress: White House Black Market, jacket: Lily Aldridge for Velvet, shoes: Zara (old, similar here), bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim, bracelets: Kristen Elspeth, Giles & Brother

    I love your blog and have been so inspired by your decrees of self love, healthy eating, and allowing our bodies to be exactly how they need to be in the moment. Reading this post, so laden with negative talk about your body image, really saddened me. You are a beautiful, healthy, and very thin woman who takes great care of herself. I hope that you can see how your words in this post probably affected the women who read your blog as a way to feel good about themselves and learn how to live an even healthier and happier life. I hope that you can continue to love yourself and project that confidence for the women who read your blog.
    No more putting ourselves down!

    Love and peace to you.

    Thanks so much everyone! And especially Thank You Rebecca! I'm so sorry if I came off as sounding negative about my body! That wasn't my intention at all and I will certainly address that in a future post! I suppose I'm a little vain and there are days when my stomach sticks out more than others and I wish it wouldn't. I meant it to be playful but totally understand your point and promoting negative self talk is the LAST thing I would want to do! I have my own insecurities and I would hate to pass them along to other women and completely see how this post could do that. Eeek. I will be more conscious of that in the future. Thanks so much for pointing it out with such kindness. xx- Sarah
